today, I organize

Today, I am going to try to organize my little creative space. I haven't really done any thing but move piles around this whole month. I did manage to get a couple more LOs completed though. The first is Evan with his "Lil Pumpkin". He loved his mini Jack 'O Lantern.
Supplies: Fancy Pants patterned paper, letters are Making Memories & the epoxy sticker is Basic Grey. Here's one of the girls at the pumpkin patch. Patterned paper is KI Memories, CB stickers are Making Memories & Basic Grey. I cut out the branch from the PP. I try to organize & hopefully later I will have photos to post of a very clean creative space!

Calm before the storm

I have actually had time to scrapbook this week! I am going to do my best to use my stash! For the "Yes my Queen" LO I used Martha Stewart paper as well as brads & epoxy sticker from Basic Grey (I got a killer deal at Big Lots)

This photo may look familiar. This is the Christmas photo I used for our Christmas cards as well as ornaments that I gave to the Grandmas. I had fun with this LO adding snowmen, felt, tags & sparking brads. So fun!
I hope to get many more LOs done this week. The kids are at the cabin this week with my folks & the cousins. We are going to meet up with them on Saturday right before we leave for Disneyland! I am just trying to rest, relax & create!

my new lens

This is a look I get often! Evan is the boy with a hundred faces. He loves flashing me a silly mug!
Thankfully though I can usually get a sweet picture too!
I took a few shots with my new lens....I am in love. I can't wait to use it in action at Disneyland! Just in case I didn't mention it before, I bought an 85mm f/1.8 for Christmas. My in laws gave me some Christmas money and then I added a little of my own to purchase this little piece of Heaven on Earth. The bokeh is beautiful & the pics are so crisp.

Christmas is coming

Wow, things have been crazy around here! I am sure that many echo those same sentiments. My scrapbooking time has been limited (if not almost nonexistent). I did manage to do a couple LOs though. Here is one of my sweet nephew.

I used Fancy Pants. This little guy is so super cute, love those big eyes!

Well, as December races by in a blur I pray that we all focus on what is important. I look forward to spending Christmas in the snow with my family and enjoying traditions old and new. I want to focus on the birth of a babe and what he brought to the world. Keeping Christ in Christmas and celebrating the King. My wish for the world is: Joy, love and peace to all!
