My little place on the web

My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

Happy Holidays!

blogged by me domestic goddess On 12/28/2007 01:36:00 PM

I actually did it! Lock the office/studio door and i haven't returned back until now, i am so proud of myself, lol.

Since i last blogged, i am now the size of a Christmas pud after eating copious amounts of chocolates, turkey, mince pies , cake and nuts!

We have recycled so much wrapping paper it is an embarrassment!

On Sunday we attended our local Church Christingle service. A lovely ceremony in conjunction with The Children's Services. All monies collected go to this worthy cause. Lilly carried the cradle to the alter. My favourite part has to be when all the children are at the front of the later, holding their Christingles and the lights go off, leaving only candle light, whilst we all sing Away in a Manger, and i always shed a tear or too. Gets me every time!

We have had a wonderful few days, playing games, watching movies and snuggling on the sofa with shortbread biscuits and hot Ribena, mmmmmm. I am not entertaining this New Years Eve as we have been invited over to friends with children, really looking forward to a night of being wined and dined.

Did you manage to pop over to Pencil Lines? We had a fantastic sketch go live on Sunday. I love my layout, featuring my new Momiji snow globe, which is now in the Sale's for half the price!!!!(i am not annoyed, I am not angry, I am not peed off!!)

I used my December kit from Paper Jam Studio. loving that glitter paper from Fancy Pants.

Pencil Lines girls have been invited over at Split Coast Stampers as Diva Designers for today. Do check out the wonderful challenges the DT came up with.
Don't forget January 1st is the start of a new 365 challenge!!! Check out some of the details here and then i will pop up a link to the new blog any day.

I am going to leave you with some photos from the last few days. Hope your Christmas was filled with Happiness and Joy, enjoy the rest of your Holidays.

    I definitely ate too much and we still have half of it left!

    I am glad you managed to have a little break from crafting over christmas, I didn't do anything either until yesterday when I did a very quick layout because I was getting withdrawal symptoms.
