Decorated Card Tin and Cards, too!

Here is the tin that I made for my grandparents for Christmas:

Here are some of the cards I made to put in it. I thought I'd continue to give them 20-25 cards or so each month to add to it:

I hope they like it!

Scrapbooking Goals for 2009... and a Giveaway!!!

Everybody else is doing it, so why shouldn't I? :)

A scrapbooking goal for 2009...hmmmm... I never set a scrapbooking goal, but maybe it's time. This has been a bad year for scrapbooking for me- I really should have gotten more pages done. With all the pictures I have (not to mention all the paper!), there is no reason other than poor time management.

So, with that in mind, I'm setting my goal at 150 pages. I know that's not much, but it's more than I've gotten done this year! LOL

Now, for the giveaway! I have no idea what I'll be sending, but I can promise it'll be fun! Just share YOUR scrapbooking goal here by midnight January 2nd (Eastern time, of course). I'll have my daughter pick a winner on Saturday!

One more...

Okay, I guess I should have put these in the last post, but I'm having a brain cloud.

Here are a few more Christmas pictures...

In front of the tree....

Striking a pose (note the bow on her head!)...

Here is Kacy decorating the tree...

Christmas Picture

Of course, no pictures of me were taken on Christmas (why is that???). But I had Kris take 3 of Kacy and me on Christmas Eve. Out of the three, I love this one the most...

Can you see why? :)

I hope your Christmas was magical!!!

Coaster Calendar and Picture Frame!

Here is something that I made really quickly on Christmas Eve for a gift! I made 3 of these- they're simple and cute!

A post! With decorated buckets/tins!!!

I have no excuses for not posting in over a month (yes, a month!). Moving on...

I made these buckets for Christmas gifts for two of Kacy's friends who are 8 years old. Totally girls, of course, so I made the buckets as "girlie" as possible!

Where did I get the buckets, you ask? Why, I'll be happy to share! They are the empty buckets from Tastefully Simple drink mixes! It was a sacrifice, but *someone* had to drink all those Cosmos!

Front and top views. I had so much fun making these!!! I then put their Christmas gifts inside the buckets (Webkinz squoosh in there very nicely!).
