A little bit of 30.....

So, I was dashing out the door to go to a party for a sweet friend of mine, and it was her 30th, so we were all supposed to bring 30 of something. So, seriously, about 20 minutes ahead of time, I dipped these spoons, and began the gift-making process!

I had this heart candle/thing, that I bought at Target, either last year or the year before, and I have just used them for the "right" gift! I bought 10!

So, I dipped the spoons, and while they were hardening, I grabbed my January Scripts Kit, and began making the tag! I love these little Jillibean Soup Alphabets, and mixed with the music paper, and a few little accents, this kit was just the perfect match!

So, I made the tag, threw them in a cello bag, and viola! The gift was made!!!

And, a fun time was had by all!!!! What a fun night!!!

So much to do, so little time!

These pictures have nothing to do with nothing, except that I love them, and they make my heart jump up, so viola!

I digress. Already.

After a trip to CHA, I have so much to think about, so much to dream of, so much to want to do! And just not enough time to do it. So, I sit, blogging at 12:39 am, when I have my alarm already set for 5am.

What in the world?! But, my mind is spinning.

Little Yellow Bicycle.
Making Memories. The new Hands free Slice.
Glitz Design.
The possibilities for the Scripts, Monthly Kit Club.

It's all too much to take in!

I can't wait to dive in......I have tons of little cute projects in my mind! ummmm, where to begin...

Oh, I guess I will start with sleep.....and then, tomorrow night, we are off to the Circus!!! Yippee!

I love Christmas Cards!!!


I love them so much! I love checking the mail everyday! I love watching my friends kids grow up each year! I love the creativity of the photos and the cards!!!

So, I started in 2000, keeping the photocards.

That was "back in the day" when they weren't too trendy. I think that year I got 5 or 6 photo cards. I put them in one large frame...collage style. I did the same thing in 2001 and 2002, but then, I was getting more photocards than I could fit in the frame.

So, then I started scrapbooking them (sort of).

So, here's what I did with this years!

I used my December Scripts Kit, and I made a "cover page"....then I used the Bind-it-All, and bound it on the side! Now, I have a little flip album from 2009! I love it!!!

I will put it away, and bring it out next Christmas, with all of the cards from Christmas' past....and go through it all over again!!!!

Ahhh, I love my photocards!!!!
