Too fast

Christmas came fast and went fast. The whole year went fast. I can't believe it's almost 2008. I remember when I was young and hearing adults always say they can't believe how time flies. I thought by the time I was an adult, I would be used to the fact that time flies by. That sure hasn't happened.

Here are a couple family pictures from Christmas this year.

Here is Kaeli eating snow. She pushes her nose all around the snow eating it up. It's cute.

Here is a card I made the other day.

The card uses Enjoy Every Moment stamp set (coming out Jan 1st in the new SU! catalog!). Cardstock: Kraft, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White. Ink: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, StazOn White. Accessories: Silver brad, Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals.

Here is another card I made the other day too.

It snowed last night!

I stayed up late finishing everything up for Christmas and didn't have any clue that it was going to snow. So this morning I was suprised to see snow! It was maybe half an inch of snow. It was cloudy when I got up and about 9am it started snowing really hard. Here is a picture of what it was like out our front door.

Then, no joke, like 20 mins later, this is what it looked like. It was a short little mini blizzard.

I'm glad we finally got some snow though! If it's going to be freezing, there might as well be snow on the ground.

Merry Christmas Eve Day!!

Good busy day

Here is a card I made. It's cased from Kelly and Kristina's cards. There is a pocket on the inside to hold a gift card. My card finished size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to fit in a regular size envelope.

The card used supplies from the December Monthly Kit. The card base is 5 1/2" x 9 1/2" and scored at 3 1/4" and 7 1/2". Stamp sets: Garden Silhouettes and Baby Jesus is Born. Ink: Real Red and Old Olive classic. Paper: Dashing DS paper, River Rock, Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla textured cardstock. Accessories: Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Brads, Sticky Strip, Dimensionals, sand paper.

Today my friend, Amy, came over and she baked Christmas goodies for gifts and I baked dog treats for gifts. They were fun to make and Kaeli loves them!

I found the recipe online and browsed through recipes until I found one with ingredients I already had here. I printed the recipe and didn't save the website, but it states it's from the Three Dog Bakery Cookbook. Uses 2 cups of whole-wheat flour (I used All purpose flour), 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 cup natural peanut butter (I used regular cheap PB) and 1 cup of skim milk.

Here is a picture of Amy's dog, Sandy. She also loved the treats too.

And here is a picture of Kaeli I took tonight in front of the tree. As you can see I have lights on the tree now!

Winter Banner

Out with the old.

In with the new.

10,000 Pictures

Today I took the 10,000th picture on my new Nikon that I got 9-6-07. I bet if I would not have went back to work, I would have achieved this a lot sooner.

The actual 10,000th picture wasn't good, but here is what I was taking pictures of today. Last night we put up our Christmas tree. Sunday we went out tree hunting and cut it down. Loads of fun.

Here is a card I made with the December Monthly Kit.

Everything except the stamp set and ink is included in the December Monthly Kit. Stamp set: Garden Silhouettes. Ink: Real Red and Old Olive Classic. Paper: Dashing DS paper, Real Red, Old Olive, River Rock, Very Vanilla textured cardstock. Accessories: Brads, Double Stitched River Rock Ribbon.

It snowed a little

There was a little bit of snow on the ground this morning. It's slowly melting, it's 2pm and it's not all gone yet.

I finally made a bow. I've been wanting to try it. The directions are at splitcoast under Paper Bow. This bow used paper from my leftover Nov Monthly Kit.

This is a bow and a card made with my Dec Monthly Kit!

The above card used the Enjoy Every Moment stamp set that is coming out in the new Stampin' Up! catalog in January. Paper: Dashing DS patterned paper, Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Real Red textured cardstock. Ink: Old Olive Classic. Accessories: Silver Brads, 1/2" Circle Punch, Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Crop-a-dile, and Dimensionals.
