Christmas albums :)

Two albums done :) I finished up my December Daily album today. I am missing pictures for a few days having lost some pics of my Mac when I spilled coffee on it. What I love about the album though is all the journalling that really captures how our days were spent. Here are the pages that complete the album :) I also wanted to share that doing this album through out December helped us stay present in the holiday and I think helped us Savior each day more :) This has truly been my Best Christmas since my Best Christmas as a kid.










and an album made with the Heidi Swapp Nourish Kit based on her album :) I love love how well the C'est La Vie photos look in this :)

Happy Scrappy Holiday








Taking a short break, from relaxing holiday style to share two things I made last week. The Calender was made with Heidi Swapp's Nourish kit based on Teresa Collins' instructions. I made the calender while happily spending my birthday at the Scrapbox. I have also have an awesome mini album that I have made with the kit that just needs a few finishing touches :) Here's to the last few days of December and 2009 :)

Scrappy Happy

Sitting on the chaise, coffee in hand, homemade biscotti near by (thanks LOLO), kids playing nicely (really they are), Ryan jamming on the tar....sweet bliss. I decided on Monday that I was on holidays LOL. I did the bear minimum in housework and instead spent a cozy week crafting, scrapping,playing with the kids, easy dinners, a wee bit of take out (just a wee):)

Here's a scrappie I played with this week. Yep that photo again, me in that shirt again...bear with me...I have felt like such an ugly duck of late and for some blessed reason I managed to have scored a few pretty pictures and I plan on MILKING THEM :) :) LOL

I am in love with my....

My new camera :) :) :) Finally, my old one was 4 years old and sooo slow, by the time it took the picture the kids were long gone. I got a Nikon COOLPIX S640 for birthday. Its red and I got a very sexy cool case for it :) Thank-you Ryan you are the best :)

I took this picture this morning, look at what a wide picture it takes....love the mess...I am on vacation, and I spent the morning scrapping while the girls played Dora on the WII.



Here's my LO, thank-you Stephanie for the picture :)

Dec Daily Catch Up

My pictures are not very good :( Guess that is what happens with a slow camera and trying to take a pic before someone's PB chubby hands get it :) LOL Good thing my birthday is coming up :) hint :)

I have been a little bit slack with taking pics each day but at least have lots of journaling in the book to capture the days. I am really enjoying the season :)
