I wanted to stop by to Wish everyone a very Happy and SAFE New Year! Also to remind everyone to collect all the goodies from my blog as they will all be removed to start a new and clean up my 4 share account. I am taking the month of January to CLEAN up all my accounts, computer and start fresh with new stuff to share. But if you stop by this weekend I will have the alpha that matches my 12 days and my blog train goodies from Dec.

I also want to share a very special layout with you. A friend and gal I have been working with on Charlie's DigiScraps, Lou Ann aka Imgdonahue. It was picked for Gallery Standout at DST . Lou Ann it is one of the best I have seen in a while..the photo you used is AWESOME.

Here is Day 10 of  the 12 days Before Christmas




Monday, December 21, 2009

Hi everyone

Just a quick note and your Day 9 goodies. I have been working on paper scrap cards for my girls. So I printed some papers to use in the colors I wanted and Here is what I came up with. What do you think?

 
And here is a few of the Tags I printed and cut out, added some jute strings.


I am really having a lot of fun and keeping my hands and mind busy as I feel, like almost everyone else, sad that I can't or have the money do spend like I have in the past. BUT....oh a positive note, maybe it is a sign to go back the way I use to be, busy MAKING everyone I love something special. No matter how useless it was I so enjoyed making Christmas gift that came from the love in my heart. Some how things just got too busy and I had gotten away from it and those Christmas were always so heart filled and loved.

ok, enough babbling...Here is your Day 9 and I hope that you find it in your heart to make something special and show the little ones in your life the joy of GIVING!

 Visiting Santa 2009
Mikey, Santa, Xander and Baby Javi



Enjoy!

Saturday, December 19, 2009

WOW, What a wonderful Day. Grandma's little Angels (you know the ones with horns) and I had a wonderful day, shopping for gift exchange (A new tradition I have started to teach them the GIVING to OTHERS part of Christmas). The boys got girls to buy for so after we got past the Transformers and making them realize girls are not going to really like them, they did great. We spent 2 hours letting them look for girls gifts and had a lot of laughs and they were so proud to stand in line and tell the cashier about what they were doing and paying for it themselves (grab bags came with 10 gift card to spend on their name the draw). Then they were so proud to put the change in the red pail for Salvation Army Bell ringer, telling the guy to have a very Merry Christmas and why they wanted to help other during Christmas that don't have anything. (GRANDMA is VERY PROUD of their little BIG HEARTS)!


Then we had one more stop to make for them doing so well, A VISIT to SANTA! For the month of Dec Cocoa Village has a ICE skating rink step up in the riverside park, and on the weekend SANTA comes to the park to visit so Dusty and I took them, with our own camera and let them talk to Santa. After telling Santa what they would like, Mikey (and then of course Baby Javi followed up too) by asking Santa to not for get the kids that don't have anything so they can get a new toy too! WOW...my lesson of GIVING and THINKING of others really touch Mikey's heart. Baby JAVI is our kind and soft hearted one, so of course after hearing Mikey he did the same thing. TIMELESS memories for GRANDMA today! (IF they could only stay this age forever!)


OK...Grandma is tired out from my 12 hour day with my 3 little guys...which ended up with a new Christmas movie (new to them) The Grinch with Jim Carey. (PICs will be posted tomorrow)


Here is your Day 7 of 12 days Before Christmas....Enjoy

Friday, December 18, 2009

Well, it is now Friday and I finally got my house cleaned. So I can play most of the rest of the weekend. I wanted to share another new hair do...for whose of you that was the first hair cut last week on facebook, you will understand why I am saying ANOTHER. I didn't like the first cut as it was nothing like I asked her to do, but I thought maybe it was my thick head of hair and I would give it a couple of washing myself and try to style it myself...everything just kept falling to my face..........so I found a couple more of the pics of the hair style and told her to go shorter and try again. Well I am finding out that she is great with coloring, trims or long hair styles but not so good with newer hair styles that are not straight and even. First I will show you what I wanted. (Twilight fav will know who she is) 



Just a couple of things wrong here....top is still to long and she cut too much from the neck and I cut the small feather bangs as she said "No bangs". So I guess I will let it grow some and find a new stylist. So enough about this...LOL. Good thing my hair grows really fast. 

First I would like to share a new Personal Use product Charlie's Digiscrap has in her store:



Next someone had stopped by my blog and asked me if I had printed my card I made on the inside so I thought I would post a pic of what I printed on the inside....it was a freebie word art but for the life of me I can't find the folder so that I can give the gal credit....I am so sorry. But will come edit this when I do find it. It is so cute...I believe she is from Ginger Snap, but as I said I will look it up and edit this.


Now I also want to show you a layout I did last night with the kit Summer Driggs did for a special friend of hers...Here is the post that I got the kit from and wanted you to please read it and please find  it in your heart to maybe donate a couple of dollars in return for the kit Summer made as a freebie for her called "Believe" . Thank you Summer you did a great job with the kit snd what a wonderful thing to do for your friend.


here is the kit:


Here is the layout I did with it as well as the candy wraps and Christmas card.



Ok I am off here for the night...so much cleaning, I am tired. But it is done and I can sit back and enjoy it for the next few days. But here is Day 6



Thursday, December 17, 2009

Well, today is my FRIDAY, WOO HOO! And it is really time to get my bunns in gear to finish up some digital Christmas Cards and gifts. So the next few days posts will be quick but when I can I will share what I am doing with you! I do have a couple of things I have been working on to show you.

First, I did get my side bar updated with our Days Gone By Posting Bonus....we have had a couple of people post already, which I really enjoy seeing your Christmas Past Layout! Remember that you are going to have a longer time this month to post, as we have extended it until Jan 15th 2010. I also added the daily links for my 12 days before Christmas links there as I will add each day there as well. That way I don't have to add all links each day here. 


Second, I want to let you know that any of my live links for any of my freebies will be removed December 31, 2009! So if you have missed anything in the last little while you will still be able to download if you have the time to go through my posts to find them. As I am uploading the 12 days before Christmas I noticed I still have alot of links still there...wont clean out until then...OK?


Next I want to share a Quick pages I did for my sister. She had the cutest idea for pictures to make her Christmas Card and I used one of the pic she sent me... Aren't they the cutest little bakers!


And I made this CD Insert and label for my good intentions of burning a DVD of all the layouts and special photos of our family gathering during 2009! I hope I get them done....biggest part of the project is going through all the photos we have taken this year....WOW I did realize how many I, alone, had taken. It is going to be a job! (this is what I will be working this next few days.) Wish me luck! Hopefully I will be more organized next year...LOL!



Credits for both of these are my Christmas Past Posting Bonus kit and 12 days of Christmas!

Day 3 of 12 days before Christmas Freebies!


Hi everyone. Well life just doesn't stop, the closer to Christmas, the most I am finding myself just too over whelmed! But I am sure almost all of you can relate. As my daughter and I was talking about tonight, having great expectations of what IT SHOULD be or how we think things should be is totally getting in the way of being happy during these days of preparing for what we want/think our holiday to be. So I think I have to start "keeping things REAL" and stop looking for more! . . . Well enough venting.... 


I did get a few pictures uploaded so that I can share my project with you...I found these from a newsletter, sorry can't remember which one, but they are the cutest match box printables. Made by Krisi's Kreations. Krisi made them with a kit by Man in the moon Designs called Tis the Season at Scrap Matters. She does amazing hybrid craft and I just had to make a few of them up. I did print and put together a couple of Krisi's and then used a wonderful freebie kit called "Believe" by Summer Driggs! But I am sorry Summer, I can't remember where I got my kit, but I love it....you did a wonderful job with it.


Aren't they cute????


Here is the card I made with 
"Believe" by Summer Driggs






Happy Scrapping and back tomorrow with another project I have been working on and more of my 12 Days Before Christmas.
