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 sweet li'l 4x4 mini album is made using Graphic 45's "Once Upon A Spring Time" paper line. Find more detail on this project Here.


This is a special 4x4 mini album I made to sell. Special because I designed a holder for it to sit in with velvet jingle bells for the feet! You will find more about this project HERE. 

This is my very first completed Family Recipe Album! The papers are by "Webster's Pages". Although it was a bit of a challenge, I created this stand for it to sit in on my kitchen desk top. I just luv the mason jar tag I created especially for this mini. You will find more details on this project here.




I created the adorable Christmas album below as a gift for my sister. I was so pleased how it turned out for her. I  used Basic Grey's Jovial paper line and stickers.  It contains some of my own hand drawn designs in it such as the snowman with the red top hat on and the snowman peeking from behind the santa pocket with felt accents on his…

I Am American and this is My Country!

I believe in my heart that the anger and revolt that people are voicing in the social media groups, in protest marches, in truly very small ways are simply trying to convey as do I the words that here to follow. Though extremely simple, I believe it is how most of us truly feel.
My heart feels such great sadness and such heaviness to see this country, the place that I have called home for all of my life, turn into a place that I can barely recognize any more. Considering that true, honest, hard working, Americans have sacrificed so very much for the freedoms that we see being taken from us by our own government, no less, on a daily basis. And with each new election of government offices we find ourselves governed by those who work against the further building of this once great, unified nation, but rather they only seek to tear down all that is good, and honorable. Stomping under their own feet the blood, sweat, agonizing tears of loss that help to build this country to the great nat…
