well, here we are at the end of november. hard to believe! we haven't had any snow yet, last year our first snowfall was on thanksgiving, which was earlier then this year, and it continued sporadically through the winter. it has been stormy and cool, with pine needles traipsing through the house, lodging in our throw rugs, scattering on the wood floors and in corners, sticking in our socks and poking our feet. dang things! geesh!
i do have a little album completed, since before thanksgiving as a matter of fact, but can not figure out which images to use on the tags, i don't think i have had this happen to this extent, ever before. it's a bit rattling. i will try and post a sneak-peek later tonight, our little owen is coming for the night, so i am not sure if i will make it to my scrapping desk at all. this will be his first sleep-over and at 18 months, it should be interesting and....busy! lol. of coarse, he is a sweetheart, and we're all looking forward to his stay.
i just wanted to check in, and say hi. i did update a few things here and added a christmas shop, to which i will be adding more items, as the week goes on. i hope everyone is enjoying this long holiday weekend, take care, relax, create!
when you go shopping this holiday season, i hope you don't get a shock like these two did! lol!
hi everyone, welcome back or... greetings to new visitors! well, here is a new christmas album, a bit different in style, with 13 uniquely designed pages, with a 6 page journaling book tucked between the pages, and 19 tags of various sizes and thicknesses. these are great papers by making memories, with a name which inspired the album title- "fa la la". i will be listing it in my etsy shop after i post it, here we go: well, a lovely lady has claimed this as her own so i needn't do all the write up, phew! lol. thanks so much, it will go out in the mail today!
phew, so is everyone in the middle of turkey day preparations? i thought that while i prepare to post my new christmas album, i would share a few postcard images for you to use for your albums, tags, place settings or whatever, be sure to click the pictures for a higher resolution copy:
enjoy, i will be back this evening with my newest album, here is a sneak peek:
this 4" X 7.5" envelope album titled "Holiday Magic". the ornament cut-out and journaling tag form a large pocket on the cover.

the tree cutout and words strips form the pockets on these two pages. each envelope holds a 4" X 7" tag which will hold even more holiday photos.
