Christmas Is A Coming

It will be here soon enough, and I am a busy bee!!!

Here are some pics of my 6" holiday circle swap and my recipe card swap. The next few weeks are mucho busy so I don't know when I'll be able to get on again and I don't want to leave the blog so long without an update.

The second set of mini books are done and I will show them as well. I think all will be very happy with them! I know I would. They are wonderful. I have really been utilizing my cricut and big shot with these projects!!

My daughter Desirae just introduced me to the Vitamin String Quartet. Go to my playlist and listen to them! They play all rock and pop music, it sounds so very beautiful. I love music, Sophia says she wants to learn how to play violin as well as the piano now. You might want to use one of their songs with the slide show.

Here are a couple of pics of my gift wrap this year. I take wrapping gifts VERY seriously, I daresay I have wrapping hubris ;) and go very extravagant! The paper has a felt pattern and the silver and gray is covered in glitter, messy as I wrap but gorgeous! I make my own bows for the gifts as well.

I love Christmas, but this year will be bittersweet. The 15th will be one year since my parents came to spend the Christmas Holiday with us and I still scratch my head and wonder how it's possible that he isn't with us anymore. What a gaping hole he has left, my Dad. No wallflower was he!!


  1. I love that so called wrapping paper. I would call that my gift. Beautiful, simply beautiful. Great other pics also. Will keep you and your family in my prayers. Love the Christmas background.

  2. Oh WOW... where to start here! I'm with Elaine..that wrapping paper is awesome... my first thought was oh what layouts I could create with that!
    The Vitamin String Quartet... I was liking that!
    The books are so great! How I love the DCWV paper... and super job on the flower! I saw it! You've done a wonderful job on the books and I know they will all just cherish them.
    Things can sure change in a year can't they... you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers... you know I love you my dear dear friend!
