'Tis The Season!!

I think that somewhere back in the middle of October someone accidentally hit the fast forward button and it got stuck!  I know this sounds cliche but I honestly don't know what happened to November?  Anyone?


I've decided that I want to soak up every moment of this Christmas season.  Savor the smells, read a little more with the kids, look for ways to bless people in need, sittin' by the fire...pinning : ) and spending lots of  time with family and friends.

At the beginning of the month I did get to teach another class at our local scrapbooking store and I surprised everyone taking the class with these fun treat bags.  The Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die templates and Picot Edge Circles made them so quick and easy to put together.

It's always at this time of year that I'm crafting up a storm with things that I can't share!!  Either with new product or for submissions.  I will tell ya that the few times I have sat down to write a post I get sucked into editing the hundreds of photos that are calling my name!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE to edit photos, nearly as much as taking them.  I promise I won't share them all but it's hard to sort through and pick just a few!

Here is one of my recent faves.  It's of a Newborn photo shoot I recently did.  I haven't even touched the other pictures yet but there were some real fun ones that I can't wait to get to.


Then there are the tree pictures!  Oh my!  LOL  We went to the coolest place to get our tree.  We let the kids and the dog run and run.  It was hilarious to see them trying to run and hide from Max!  It's been so much fun editing them but I think I'll wait and share them on a layout!

Today, I had a happy box arrive on my doorstep from Northridge Media (thank you!)  I have an extra copy.  Are you interested?  LMK!  I'd be happy to send it out to one of my blog readers.  I'll randomly choose someone from the the comments on Sunday, midnight PST.  I have a few scrappy goodies to throw in with it as well!



Thanks so much for not giving up on me!
