Crazy busy is how you can best describe the last couple of months for me. Between teaching, coaching cheer leading and holding auditions for the Spring play at my school I have not had a moment to myself. I was hoping to get a lot more crafting in, but things have just not played out that way.
I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and is looking forward to New Year's Eve (I love this night, but often find myself in bed before midnight hits!). I have to say that Christmas was a wonderful day and my daughter really enjoyed herself. We stayed in our pajamas all day (my mom made them for the whole family with fabric she found last year on a major sale!).
While I mentioned that very little crafting has been going on for me I did manage to cut out all sorts of stencils for my daughter's Godfather that he used to etch glasses he was giving as gifts. I also made an assortment of gift tags after finding amazing holiday lights wrapping paper at Mejer. My husband will tell you I was a little nutty about getting them made. He is not stupid, he knows that when I get an idea in my head and start working on it I do not let up until I get it the way I want. I used the light bulb from Christmas Cheer to make these and they looked really great under the tree. I also made several to put on the scrapbook page I plan on making soon.
Christmas Cheer was used to make the light bulbs. I used the basic shape plus the shift function of the basic shape to create the black toppers.
I am hoping that with my remaining days off I can get in some scrapbooking (I got one for my daughter and she would like to start as well) and will have many pages to share with you. I have really gotten comfortable with my Gypsy and I got a wonderful pink cover for it from my husband this holiday season. I am looking forward to the Disney Classic Cartridge coming out as the play I mentioned earlier is Alice in Wonderland and all the images on this new cart will be soooo helpful.
OH yeah...I almost forgot. I got a YourStory Photobook for the holidays. I bought it for myself, but that still counts. When it arrives I will get started making some projects with it right away.
