i've been meaning to use my opa's typewriter more.
i just love the look of type on a page, tag or card.
i whipped off some layouts the other day.
here's a sneak peek of the typing first.
can you guess what each layout "theme" is?

enjoy your day,

holiday home

it's starting to look like Christmas around the house.
the amy grant Christmas music is playing in the evenings.
the tree is picked from the bush, decorated & looking wonderful.
the wishlists are made.............

.................although I have no presents purchased yet.
Better get on that!  I think my kids are starting to panic a little.

"But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord."
{Luke 2: 10, 11}

remembering the Reason for the Season,

number one fan

Have you heard?  Have you visited this newly designed blog?  It's got the latest & greatest for all your scrapbooking and cardmaking projects.  You will wonder how you ever crafted without vinyl!!?!

You have got to go check out the latest vinyl designs that have been created for your Halloween projects!!!  My personal favourite is the "Moonlight Owl".  I know, I's almost Christmas (Halloween is over)....but are you really caught up already?!?  Besides, I've personally seen the new Christmas vinyls........and my order is going to be in by the end of the week.  Check out the "Ordering Information" and the "Colour Options" on the sidebar.  Your order is just a quick email away.  You will definitely want to get your hands on these.  I shared a ton of designs and colours with all the Crop and Cruis-ers in November.  If you were one of the lucky ones........send me a link to a page where you used them.  I'd love to share your projects here as well.

Click here to go visit this cool blog.....and order today!

On more of a Christmas-is-right-around-the-corner note.......I created a few tags this year.  I thought I needed to inch my way back into scrapbooking after the cruise.  It had been a while since I created something "NOT for the purpose of instructing others". 
I used plain manilla office tags, Tim Holtz Distress Inks (with water and my craft mat), some cute stamps, black ink and I sewed on some little felt embellishments.  Happy Holidays to's right around the corner (and I have only ONE gift in my house right now that I've purchased)......yikes!!!........(and it's not for one of my kids).

 See you soon.
