Merry Christmas!!!

I just want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope that everyone gets what they want for this holiday!!

I would like to share my finished products of the presents that I am sending out Late. I was at my Mother in Laws for about a month and its taken me a while to get settled back into my own home. That is the reason my presents AND Christmas cards are going out late. So here is what I did for my Father (hardest one to figure out what I was going to make him)
This is a Mini Album that I did for my Father!
Now I REALLY REALLY want to show everyone what I made for Lizzie but I have not yet sent it out so that means I cant show you it. I will show you a Sneak Peek of what I did for her. Once she gets it I will post the whole picture.
This is her Birthday Present
This is her Christmas Present!
I also want to say that I did a Gazillion mile long Crochet Chain lastnight. I learned it all by myself!! Yay me!! Hehehe.... Hopefully I will be able to make something AWESOME. Well I hope everyong has a Fun and Safe Holiday.

Where has the time gone?

So its like a couple days before Christmas and I so cant believe how quickly time has passed. I am ALMOST done with all of my Christmas presents that I am making, then I need to send them out, lol. So ya the people I am making these for are going to get a late X-mas gift along with my late X-mas cards, lol. I know I am horrible lol. It just hasn't felt like Christmas to me and I have no clue why. So I really cant put a picture on here of the gift I have been making for Lizzie because she drops in here once in awhile....Hi Lizzie, lol. So here is the Christmas Photos that I took that I will be sending out to family!
So I did a challenge for paper craft junkies on Cafemom. It was a Christmas LO that I did. It was so fun and cute. I believe that its a pencil lines sketch but I am not to sure. Here is the picture of what my layout looks like.
so forgive me but for some reason it loaded up sideways and that is not how it was when I was loading it, weird. Anyways I do love how it came out I need to do another one but I dont have any more xmas photos from last year lol. Oh here is a Christmas Star/ Snowflake that I make.
I also did Mrs. Dee's card sketch challenge for the month. I loved the way it came out too!!! BUT Mr. CJ messed it all up :(  while I was in my scrap room he tore up the card :( Here is a picture of the card before CJ got a hold of it, lol. I am just in a picture mood tonight, I just want to share pictures with you all, lol. So I am going to show you a picture of our Charley Brown Looking Christmas tree, lol. We dont have many decorations but we made with what we have. Soon or hopefully eventually we will have more decorations for the holidays.
Oh and here are a couple of pictures that I took Saturday night when we went to take my friend and her hubby out for dinner. We went to Texas Roadhouse and it was SUPER yummy!!
So I think I am done yapping for tonight!! I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday and is safe!! Happy Holidays!!

My Ventures!!

Last night we recieved our gifts that we got in NC for my hubby's present. Well in the boxes was our jar of APPLE BUTTER, greatest thing on this earth, lol. That made me want to make some FRESH biscuits in the morning to have with it!! Then I was thinking well I have been looking at Sonya's Blog because she has some recipes that just look absolutely AWESOME!! She has these two recipes and they are Peanut Butter and Chocolate Crinkles ( not together). It looked SOO easy to make so I was like why not? Well I gave it a try this morning! And Guess what?? They came out ABSOLUTELY AMazing!! I cant believe that I baked them!! I also made some homemade chicken soup. Lets just say that hubby had TWO bowls of the soup. He absolutely LOVED the cookies and let me tell you he his not someone who does sweets!! So now I am going to be trying another one of Sonya's recipe that she has on her blogspot. Stop by and check it out. Well I just wanted to gloat about my makings.

Chocolate Crinkles Peanut Butter Crinkles

Oh Ya I forgot to tell ya all about my birthday! So my friend Misha took me to Olive Garden for lunch and she gave me a bday card she made, super cute! Then we went to her house and made some YUMMY Peppermint Cookies!! When I got home my hubby bought me Carnations(my fav flower) and gave me a massage. It was a GREAT 25th bday for me. me on my bday. I look wrecked lol.

My X-mas Gifts!!

So I have been in the crafty mood. I don't know what it is but I am just wanting to give them gifts that I created. It was a very easy project to do but kind of messy because I used modge podge. They came out so much better then I expected, I want to keep them for myself!! I really do hope that they like it as much as I do! I am still behind on making my gifts. I still have to make Lizzie her bday gift, since shes an old lady, lol and I still have to make her her xmas gift as well. So to say the least my xmas gifts are going to be a tad late. I guess thats what happens when you get to your house on the 11th and are trying to settle back into it. So here check out my notebooks I altered.

Playing catch up!!!

So I know I have not blogged in a minute so here I am playing catch up. Well some of you know that my mother in law put me up for a pretty good challenge. I must say I think I did a pretty good job! I made 11 6x6 mini albums to give out for xmas gifts. I will say that I did not get it 100% done :( but it is 90% and they would never know that it wasnt finished, lol. I am waiting for the rest of the pictures to be sent so I can finish up the books. I gave 3 out and they LOVED them. So here is a peek at what I did. I was scrapping like a mad lady while I was there.
