Happy New Year's Eve!!!

Can you believe it's New Years already? So hard to believe! I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for all the support, visits, and fun comments of the past year. I know I don't get a chance to post as often as I'd like, but I wanted everyone to know how much you all mean to me! I also wanted to post a quick New Years card I made and sent out to some of my crafty girl friends. Just a simple card, but I thought it was kind of festive. Also, I want to wish you and yours a very Happy and prosperous New Year to you all and thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to visit me. Stay safe and enjoy your day!

Last Sunday of 2012

How was your last Sunday of the year? Mine was pretty good, did some grocery shopping, crafting, and spent time with DD #2. She was gone for Christmas so this was good to see her. Last night while I was checking e-mails and blogs, I found that my friend Diana at DL Art has a couple of challenges getting ready to end this week. So today while I was in my room, I thought I'd make a quick card for one of them. I chose the Thankful Thursday Challenge which was called for an ornament and ribbon. I know, Christmas is over, but I thought, hey, what better way to get started on next year's cards, right?? ;) Hopefully I can keep this up and maybe make one a week...sounds like a pretty good resolution to me! I hope you have a good evening, and I thank you for stopping by.

All supplies from SU! except ribbon which was from my stash.

Sunday Evening

Hello everyone. I wanted to share some cards, bags, and tags that we made last Saturday at our December play date. Instead of a monthly workshop we opted for a play date where the girls could work on their current project or on a bundle of cards, bags, and tags. We had a blast! We decided to have a potluck lunch, which is always yummy, and then since it was my birthday the following day, they surprised me with balloons and a decadent chocolate cheesecake. Love my girlfriends!!!

This is the first bag we did, which I CASED from a fellow demo.

Matching card.

Second card we made.

Gift bag with jingle bells.

 Third card with matching bag

And the last gift bag we made.

Well I hope you had a good weekend and I thank you for stopping by. Have a great week!

Sunday Morning

Good morning everyone. What a week its been. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Newtown. I cannot imagine the incredible pain they are in right now. One of my fellow demonstrators shared the address of the school for those that want to send cards. I know it's a small thing, but we can show our support to so many by sending a simple card. The address is: Sandy Hook Elementary School 12 Dickenson Drive Newtown, CT 06482.

Happy December!

 Wow! I can't believe it's December already! I took 2 weeks of vacation from work to enjoy Thanksgiving and get everything and everyone in the house ready for Christmas. Did I accomplish that? Yeah right! We did enjoy Thanksgiving, but the rest of the time things just came up. :( And, I caught a cold on top of it!! So, I've been meaning to share some pics of our new little furbaby, so figured now was a good time.
This is Chloe. She's a 7 month old Pomeranian, but there's definitely some Chihuahua in there somewhere. lol  She's all of 4 lbs. and according to the vet, won't get any bigger. With that in mind, we had her spayed this last Tuesday, so that kept me pretty busy. My youngest daughter got her when she was only 7 weeks old and just wasn't prepared for the needs of a baby. So guess who got her?? ;)
Here she is with her "cone of shame". She's so tiny they had to use a cone that is made for cats. Over all though, she's doing well. The 1 stitch (that shows you how small she is!!) from the incision is due to come out on Friday.
Needless to say, the bows didn't last long! lol This was taken the day before Thanksgiving. She is a little pistol though and really  makes me laugh. Well,  that's it for tonight. I know there will be more pictures of her in the future. I hope you have a good week, and I thank you for stopping by.
