Getting In the Christmas Spirit

With the holiday fast approaching I thought I would play around with some of my Christmas papers and stamp sets, trying to get inspired. (As you can tell I was having a hard time) There is so much going on in our lives it is hard to find that Christmas Spirit. I'm going to have the kids help me put together fun little tree ornaments like the one I posted to share with their classmates.

Sweet Birthday Blessings

Tomorrow is my MIL birthday, she is still in the hospital recovering from two major surgeries. It is hard to believe she has been in the hospital now for 3 weeks.....our lives have been totally turned upside down when we found out she has stage 4 stomach cancer. This was so unexpected and a very emotional time for everyone. I really wanted to make a scrapbook for her, I got as far as picking out pictures...I just don't have the time to compete it right now, but hope to for Christmas! (My goal anyway) I did get her a card made tonight, along with a cute Thanksgiving "Turkey" card I've been wanting to make since I saw them in our monthly Stampin' Up Magazine. Hope you enjoy!

On a Roll...

Once you start you just can't stop I guess....I'm on a roll! I thought I was done stamping tonight, then Ashton (My oldest daughter) came down with the flu. So, I thought since I'm sitting up with her, I may as well keep playing with my new stamp sets. This Under the Stars Card was a very fun card to make, plus it made me drag out some of my old sets. Something I love to do! I added glitter to the snowflakes, which is hard to see in the photo but really pops in person. I did a few techniques with this card...Masking, Chalking, Inking Stamps with Markers and yes I finally used my jumbo wheel. I hope you enjoy!

Making Up For Lost Time!

Today I spent half the day in my craft room, I focused on one main stamp set Party Hearty by Stampin' Up. I purchased about 6 sets a little over 6 weeks ago and I'm finally starting to use them, so excited! After today I decided Stamping is really good for your soul.....always knew I enjoyed it, but today it really brightened my spirit.

Felt So Good....

Today I finally went down to my craft room for the first time in weeks, it felt so good.....it was like coming home after a long vacation! I jumped right in and made a princess notebook and memory game for Ashton's friend, Bailey. They both turned out really cute, Bailey's birthday party is today. The cool glitter paper I found at Hobby Lobby, it was a little spendy but well worth it!! I originally had planned on using my Cricut to cut out the Disney Princesses, but I tried several attempts and after much frustration I went back to Hobby Lobby and bought stickers. Thanks Kim for letting me vent to you! Needless to say I will attempt to make bigger Cricut cut outs with that cartridge next time! I am looking forward to a night of stamping, so stay tuned as I will be posting more goodies. Also I am working on getting some blog candy ready, as a thank you for being patient with me these past few weeks!! For those of you interested my MIL is still in the hospital and we are taking things one day at a time.

What To Do Next???

I will not be posting to my blog for awhile, as we did not get the news we wanted to hear concerning my mother in law. She has stage 4 cancer and it has spread, they removed her whole stomach on Thursday and inserted a feeding tube.....I will not be e-mailing Halloween riddle templates until further notice. (Sorry) I will keep them in my in box and as soon as life settles I promise I will try to send them! Thank you to all my family and friends who have sent such sweet cards and thoughtful e-mails.....we can't thank you enough! Hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween yesterday!
