Almost there...

I have 2 1/2 days left of school before the Christmas break!! I am so excited!! Two weeks off!! I have so much stuff planned to do, cleaning ugh!! But I need to do a more major clean up of the house..lots of scrapping, relaxing, hanging out with friends and family, hubby will be good!!

I have been so busy with getting Christmas gifts ready that I really haven't had much of a chance to blog, sorry!! Have been doing a bit of scrapping in between kind of as a break from the Christmas gift making but, I am almost done!! Will be finishing the gifts off over the next couple of days and will post some pictures of them soon too!!

Things at home with Jared have been so good. Things are good with us and life. It feels good. Not too much to worry about, still figuring things out but we're doing it together. Lots of hanging out and talking. I am just absolutely loving it!!

Now I wanted to share some scrappies!!

That's about it for now, will be back soon!! Want to post some Xmas pics!! Have a good rest of the week!!

So happy it's Friday!! YAY!! Not much going on. Lots of stuff to do still for Christmas, still making things but, it's coming along...will show pics soon too!! So, I fianlly managed to upload my minis that I have been making. I love making them!! So fun and easy and easily addictive. It's also fun to make something different!! I can for see me making more!! Already have a couple of other ideas for some...

So, what are you all doing this weekend?! Probably what I'm doing too..Jared and I are going Christmas shopping this weekend, hopefully we'll get most of it done!! I went to the mall on Wednesday to pick up this...

I absolutely loved Laverne and Shirley in high school, now I know it's not from my generation but they used to show reruns of it all the time and my bff in high school and I used to watch them all the time together, that and Grease, that's another story!! I was so happy when they started bringing the series out on, that is what I will be watching this weekend and making Christmas gifts.

I also bought this...

Had to after watching the Victoria Secret Fashion Show..loved them when they were around while in high school!! Have been listening to them in the car and totally just dancing away while driving!!

Hope you all have a good weekend!!

I had a good and relaxing weekend!! It snowed all weekend over here. And it was so nice to stay inside, nice and warm!! I didn't have anywhere to go so I stayed home!! And i was busy being creative!! Made lots of things!! Did some scrappies and worked on some Christmas gifts that I am making for friends and family. Will share later. But for now here I what I made...

Love how these pretty snowflakes came out!! And of course when I was done there was glitter on me and everywhere else.

And now some pages, they are all from the Sistv collections. I finally had a chance to play with them!! Cannot wait to do some more!! I love these collections they are so easy to use and so fun!!

Love how the pages came out!! I did most of these pages on Saturday!! And Sunday I was busy creating in the kitchen. Made a new recipe in the slow cooker, Tamale Pie it turned out really yummy and I baked some Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies so yummy!! Something about snow and cold just makes you want to cook and bake.

Jared was home all of Sunday too, he was busy watching his Bears game. Which unfortunately they lost. I also worked on another mini album that I'm almost done and then I will post!! I still have to post the mini I made about Hawaii.

And we watched Desperate Housewives, what's going to happen to Tom and the kids? And watched also Brothers and Sisters, I am so happy that Kitty and Robert got married. Sometimes I wish how fun it would be to join in on one of their family get togethers, I know it's only tv but still. Can't wait to see what happens next.

The snow was still here when I woke up this morning but, it's starting to rain so, unfortunately I don't think school will be having a snow day!! Which is too bad 'cause I was kind of thinking it would be nice to get all creative again today!!

Also wanted to say thank you to everybody for all the wonderful comments from my last post. Getting to be chosen for the catwalk has totally made my week or even more..year but, it was a total boost of confidence!!

Hope you all have a good week!! Be back soon!!
