Yes! Yes! It's that time of year! It's my favorite time of the whole year! I just wish I had more hours in a day to get everything done, and that it didn't zoom by quite so fast. I would love to be able to kick back and enjoy the holidays, but there is sooooo much to do!!
So I haven't been able to do a lot of card making in the past couple of weeks. ( sad) Although I have been enjoying what I'm working on very much!
Since I didn't have a card to share, I thought I would share some of the things I'm working on presently.
I am doing a December Daily album this year. I have done this every year for the past three years and I love it! It's so fun to do and the fam and I LOVE going back and looking at them to see what the previous Christmas's were like. I have always done mine digitally, as I am a digital scrapper from way back. This year I decided that I was going to do it traditionally with paper, stamps and dies. Oh my! I was really overwhelmed when I first started this. I had no idea what to do, or how to do it. I keep thinking the whole time, how much easier this would be if I could just do it on the computer. But... I persevered! I kept playing around with pages and adding paper and finally I think I have my head wrapped around this whole paper scrapping thing. haha! For now, I am just putting the base pages together. I have some alpha and number dies ordered, and I will go back and put the day and date on them with those. When December rolls around, I'll add my pictures for each day and do some journaling. Voila! I'm all done! I'm looking forward to doing this, but I do think I'm going to tackle my Project Life digitally for 2014 :)
Another project I have been working on is getting ornaments made for all of my friends and family. I have been working with polymer clay for almost 20 years now. Years ago before the children came into the picture, I sold them at craft shows and miniature shows around the country. I don't do the shows anymore; and I don't have the time or desire to create mass quantities, but I still love to get my clay out this time of year and create a few for our family and friends.
Okay so that is what I've been up to in my extremely small amount of free time :) Tomorrow is my day to play and I hope to get a few more ornaments made along with some gift bags to put them in.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
