Yikes It's December 15!

I can NOT believe it is already December 15. I am having a VERY hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year.

I haven't mailed cards...which I had planned to make them but finally broke down the other day and bought some 60% off at Joann's. Still haven't mailed them though. I also have not started shopping yet! I have make 4 albums and am making two fleece blankets but other than that nada has been done.

Luckily we aren't celebrating with most of the family until after Christmas so that does give me a little more time. The hubby and I plan to spend a quiet day alone at home, which will be a first in the 4 years I have known him. Very much looking forward to it.

My plan is to sleep in, scrap, and that's about it.

Happy Holidays everyone!

My First Blog Entry

Well I am diving into the blog world after inspiration from all the members of scrapbeach.

This blog will be mostly to show my scrapbooking, cardmaking, and occasional crochet projects.

I have been scrapbooking for about 6 years. I have recently had a resurged interest from watching Kathryn's video's on youtube as well as other members of scrapbeach. I am doing a lot of mini's now. I just participated in my first mini album swap through scrapbeach and hope to participate in more of them in the future. I photos of my minis soon. Dont' have a video camera but am considering purchasing one to video my projects for myself as well as others.

I Just started cardmaking and recently acquired about 300 rubber stamps and cardmaking supplies from a good friend, who had a friend that passed that had all these supplies that her family didn't want so my friend snagged them for me. So I have to use them right?

I have been crocheting since I was about 9 years old, but just was taught by my husband's grandmother last year how to read patterns and it has opened up a whole new world of crochet for me. I tend to crochet more in winter than warmer months. I like to sit on Sundays and watch football or movies and crochet, or crochet while I am watching tv in the evening.

Happy Creating
