Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
I think I covered all of the bases. It has been far too long since I have made a post. I do hope to be more regular on posting. It has definitely been a hard 2 months for our family and we are mustering through it. So for that I have not been very creative let alone wanting to create anything just for fun. But it is the holiday season and I love making cards and sending them to family and friends. I only used my Cricut on two cards and the rest are stamps. My new favorite markers are Stampin Up. I just love how everything coordinates together. These cards I made for my co-workers but they do not know it yet. Disregard the small magnets. I purchased the scrap'n'easel and the scrap'n easel ette from Contain Ya Crafts. I so love them. It makes doing cards and page layouts easy. Why did I buy both -- well I have one area of my craft space that I just do layouts since my computer, expression and silhouette cameo all sit on one table together and I have another area devoted to just stamping. Do you need both, no. But I found it worked easier for me. Plus both fold real nicely to take to a crop.
The following items were used:
- Micheal's recollections 8.5x11 craft card stock
- Stampendous jumbo snowfall pair (crs5018-47573)

The next project I am working on is almost like project life. I am using their products but instead of weekly I am doing monthly. My life gets to crazy and full to do weekly. Im stressed as it is and I do not want to put any additional stress upon myself by falling behind. I do admire those who can craft like that but I am not there yet. Maybe in 5 years I'll be there. I am just starting to get back into enjoying the hobby.
To all who read, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.....From My Family....To Yours!!!!!!
