It's Christmas Already?!

Yes, yes, yes, I am still here. And, yes, it has been a good while since I have posted anything at all on my blog. I do miss it. I have spent most of my time on... You guessed it! Face Book, Pinterest, Hay Day, (the game) and doing a little scrapping on the side. I had started a Christmas Daily Journal and was breezing right along with it until I had to lay it down to go out of town for Thanksgiving. When I returned, I was unable to work on it like before due to several reasons, so I won't be finishing it before Christmas but I look forward to working on it in January. I am determined to better document our Christmas this year than any before. I may be able to grab some pics with my IPad to post for you to see my progress so far.
I have been really busy trying to get everything ready for Christmas. I am almost finished decorating, but still have to decorate the tree! I've been working on my menu, recipes, and shopping list today.
I have revised a breakfast casserole that I intend to make for Christmas morning and I am thinking I will have some sort of sweet bread with it as well.
For Christmas Eve I plan to have a small family party just for us consisting of a spread of yummies I will be making shortly.
Well, that is the plan! Hope all of your holiday plans are going well.
God bless you all.

This is the sock monkey I had Lynn of "Handmade Creations by Lynn", to make for my granddaughter. I made a flower for her head and a cute tu-tu for her to wear. I love how she has turned out :o) I think Jasmine will love her too don't ya think?!
Happy Creating!

Change... It Does Come!

There is absolutely no way that I can settle down long enough to put into words all the change and emotions I am and have been experiencing over the past two weeks! So, for now, I am just going to share a little with you.
I have less than one week now before I move to the Raleigh area with my hubby and grandson! I know! This simple sentence in no way explains anything at all! I have a sister and her family who live in the area. I have an Aunt, an Uncle, three cousins, who live in the area, not to mention nieces and nephews who have grown into young adults without me. Two of my grandchildren live there as well.
Lifetime of a story put short? My husband and I have lived away from home and family since we were first married and this December we will have been married for 32 years! I know! A whole 3/4's of a lifetime! LOL! We have been apart due to his job in the area for almost 18 months only seeing each other on the weekends. But two weeks ago we decided we were not waiting on the …

Finally!!

I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time. The only other project that took me this long to pull together was my first Recipe Album!! Yesterday, I decided on a design and today a theme! Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
