Things seem to be picking up around our house!!!! Since the last time I've posted I've accepted a new position, which I'm very excited about!!! It only took me 14 mts. but better late then never right?

Also, I actually managed to start my Christmas shopping. This is the first year I've run into this, but each of my children have something on their list for Santa, which happens to be an extremely popular item this year.....not a fun experience!!! I did manage to find what my son wants (had I waited another week or two I probably wouldn't have), but I'm having a very difficult time finding the BOY doll that my daughter wants. The doll comes in both a boy and a girl model, but apparently all 4 yr. olds must want the boy model this year. I can find tons of the little girl dolls, but none of the little boy??? What's a MaMa to do?

As you can tell from my blog lately I'm in full Christmas mode here, we even had our first snow fall last night. The kids were outside at 8:15 this morning building snowmen!! Sadly, I was NOT going to go out and join them, so they had to go it alone!!!! They had a blast though.

Here are a couple more Christmas cards to share with you. I bought a K & Co. matt pack of 4x6 Christmas papers yesterday, I think K & Co. is one of my favorite PP lines, just behind BG!!! The second card is still a little iffy for me, and even though I did make 3 of them, I still can't decide if I like them. I'll just wait and see if they sell or not! I also included a picture of some of the tags I've been working on! Tags are not an easy thing for me to make at all, but thought it would be a good idea for using up my scraps, as I hate to throw any of them away!! Though I still need to find the right ribbon to finish them off! Sentiment stamps are from Skipping Stone Designs!

Well, I've definately rambled on much too long! Have a great day everyone! TFL!!!!

Peggy tagged my to play this fun game! Thanks Peggy! Remember to check our her blog, Ribbonrie, as she does some lovely cards!

1. If you could have $100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?

Tough choice, but I'd have to go with PP's. A lot of my embellishments come from the $ store, and my local one has a great selection which is updated with new items regularly. So I'd definately use the money to invest in some beautiful, expensive, co-ordinating PP lines!

2. If you had to choose between only using stamps or rubons, which would you choose?

Although I love the look of rub-ons, some of the designs are wonderful. I would have to stick to stamps if forced to choose.

3. If you knew how to do awesome cards and layouts and could only do one for a whole year....which would you do?

Cards, without a doubt!

4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home....(can't have both..he,he,he.)

I think I would stick with my own cozy little room I have now! It also serves as our computer room, but everything in my corner is set up to suit me, and I can just go in and "escape" after the kids go to bed!

5. And last but not least, what is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style....

I don't think I really have a style! I like to try new things and just play. I tend to stick to clean lines and love soft inking in light tans and darker browns, for a vintage feel, but not always!

I'm usually in the last round of tagging on these, so if you haven't yet been tagged and want to play, consider yourself tagged, just leave me a lik so I can enjoy your answers!

TFL, have a good one!
