i am still around!

I know, I know.... I have been MIA for a while. I have been busy. I started the Stories in Hand class and have been working away on that.... For more info, check here. Let me show you what I made for that class! It is all about getting the stories of your life out there. I am really excited about it. I made the binder and it has all sorts of promt questions and places to write the storie ideas quick, with when, where, what columns. I have even more ideas on how I want to organize the stories in a bigger form. The possibilities are endless.

I also have a friend who likes to craft! I mean, really. It is hard to find someone who likes the same things you do, has a munchkin the same age as one of yours, and who you feel completely comfortable with! I have found such a person. I am really excited about that. We are making some Christmas gifts, more on those after the big event! We have also made some little decorations for our homes for the holidays! We did a big "T" and "C" for Thanksgiving & Christmas. Here they are in their unfinished glory. We put the paper on the letters we got from Joann's modge-podged over them. In this picture we are waiting for them to dry. The "T" is done in Matte modge-podge and the "C" we used luster and mixed some glitter in it to make it a little more festive. It is really exciting to see them.

Here is a photo, not the best, for some reason my flash wouldn't go off. I need to wait for crafty friend to email me her photos too. But these are the completed "T". We put 3 different ribbons around the top of the "T." Ricrac around the seam of where the 2 different papers meet. Ribbon and a tag with the words "give thanks" and "family" around the part where the "T" meets. Super, super CUTE!

in honor of the day

So, I have been doing some scrapbooking. I just have been busy with parties and running around with the munchkins, I haven't had a lot of time to post them on here. I am really still in love with templates. I just snagged Janet Phillips November Grab Bag here. I can't wait to see what is in store there! Enjoy!

Happy DSD

So to all of my digital scrapbooking friends, Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day! My favorite sites are having amazing sales at least today, some through the weekend. My favorite is scrapbookgraphics. My good friend has an awsome new alpha up. Even better, it is only a BUCK! YAY! She has fonts and another acrylic alpha too. Check her out. I am super excited to get some of the things I have been eyeing, but didn't want to have to pay full price!
