Its(finally) Beginning to look...

A lot like December, like it should at this point!
I am not going to complain. I am an adult, and choose to live here, where the weather is certainly 4 different seasons. I like it. I would like it even more if I had no reason to leave my house from December to March.

I started decorating before Thanksgiving, and took a lot of heat for it. The deal is that the little bit I do work, its retail. And um, well, we all know about retail in the weeks after Thanksgiving. I am working a lot. Again, not complaining, lovin the bit of extra cash for Christmas. But that's why I needed to get an early start on decorating. Speaking of an early start, here is a project I worked on this past summer with my Aunt Linda and my Gramma (and Lisa too!) They are a sample of Tim Holtz Christmas tags. Trust me, the photos dont do them justice. They are so detailed and took an enormous amount of time to complete.

Also got to use a ton of products that I had no experience with, like alcohol inks, crackle paint, grunge board and all the fun little accessories that are here, not to mention the beautiful stamps.

I always enjoy crafting with them. Such a super creative bunch! And they spent months collecting and purchasing all the supplies for them. Thank you, Gramma and Linda! I've been dying to hang these. For now they are hanging from the ribbon that I hang Xmas cards on. Beautiful!

And today was our first snow!! Here are the kiddos after picking up Teagen from Preschool.

It was sucker sale day:) Did you know they make banana Tootsie Pops now?

Let the craziness BEGIN!!

Wow! Your endless amount of talent never ceases to amaze me girl!! Those tags are gorgeous!!! I wish I had more time to do fun and fancy stuff like that. However, I'm not sure I would have anyone to give them to who would appreciate them. None the less - they're beautiful!!
