Christmas Gifts for School

I like to remember all those who work with my daughter at school with a little something at Christmas time.  This year, I stole a project idea from one of my talented peeps and made these cute 3 x 3 sticky notes holders.  I used a now retired Creative Memories holiday paper,  3 x 3 sticky note pads and mini gel pens I bought at Staples.

Thanks, Starlight Peep, for the project instructions!


What can stop a scrapbooker in their tracks and reduce them to tears (besides an amazing shot of their family)?  Yes, it would be finding a broken lens on their camera.  My heart just stopped, I was stunned beyond words as I took my camera out of the camera bag.  My mother quickly got me in the car and off we drove to the mall to find a replacement lens.  Unfortunately, camera lens are not involved in the Black Friday discount weekend buying blitz.  Fortunately, Best Buy had a DT 55-200 that would fit my Sony SLR.  Quicker, than quick, Santa's elf secured the purchase.  How many more days till Christmas?  Does this picture not make you want to cry?

Tuesday morning I accidentally took my morning helper's car keys to work with me.  Oops!  As a way to say I'm Sorry, I made this quick card using the key cut from the Cricut Botantical Cartridge.  Inside the card, I glue dotted a gift certificate to Dunkin Donuts.  Guess it worked, she forgave me. :)

Chloe and Santa

Wow, Thanksgiving is upon us, and Christmas is right around the corner.  So much to be thankful for, such as this darling sweetie in our life.  I am sure there will be doogie cookies under the tree for you, Chloe!

Encouragement for Wilma and Fred

My hairdresser and her husband are running in the Manchester Road Race this year dressed as Wilma and Fred Flintstone.  Each year I design a poster as encouragement for them mid way into the race.  This is the poster this year.  A special thank you to my Crafty Peep for giving my cave people such great face details. :)

Yabbadabbado, Wilma and Fred!!
