Feeling Good...


Yay! Our tree is up (still no star yet, though!)... it's really feeling like Christmas in my cozy little bungalow house. I love Christmas decorations.

I am REALLY REALLY enjoying scrapbooking now that I'm on bedrest... er, "house arrest" as my doctor calls it. Thankfully, I can sit at the table or couch for some time. I don't have to be horizontal all day and THAT is a huge relief. I can live a somewhat normal, albeit lazy & sloth-like, existence. Anyways... back to scrapbooking. I always liked it, but now it's so much more than a hobby. It's sanity. It's therapy!!! :) Here are some sneak peeks as to what I've been up to with the December Mosh Posh kit:


I can't share all of my December Mosh Posh projects with you all yet (I have to upload to the Design Team gallery, first). So those will have to wait for another day. But I CAN share this really neat-o serving tray I made for the online class.


It was an easy project, it just takes a little time... basically waiting for paint to dry. I have it sitting on the lamp table by our front door now. It's going to be the permanent place where I keep all the Christmas cards we recieve this year (hello! send Christmas cards!).


Speaking of Christmas cards... want to see the evolution of our Christmas photo/card? The first year we just did a Costco card, so I only have the photo for that one. But, here they are... my changing family:

Next year our family will change even more on our Christmas card... we'll hopefully have a healthy baby girl, almost 1 year old. :)
