Page 1& 2

Sorry I didn't post anything last night, got busy doing stuff. Anyway here's a look at what I've gotten done so far.

Page 1 is a piece of cardboard that I cut into a bracket shape and painted with acrylic paint. On the front I placed a picture of Becca removing a number from our "Christmas Countdown " that I made a few years ago. I added a few stamped lines to journal on, a stamped circle, and the "one" is a glitter Thicker. On the back I placed a closeup of the calendar accented with American Crafts metal photo corners and journaled a bit more on a Heidi Swapp journaling spot. Page 2: two pictures of hot chocolate in holiday mugs that I merged together in photoshop( I break these out for the month of december). In the winter hot chocolate is a favorite snack at our house. The page is made of a piece of Creative Cafe green chipboard and the accent stickers are Scenic Route& letter stickers are American Crafts.

How are your books coming????

That's about it for now. Had teacher conferences this afternoon(all went as expected there) and I plan to curl up with a good book tonight..."One Mississippi" by Mark Childress. I've only read about 50 pages so far, but I'm finding it pretty funny. It's about a teenage boy who's family just moved to Mississippi in his junior year of high school.

I'm going to live vicariously through your DD album. Fab, as usual!

My mom always loved to use her Spode Christmas dishes during the whole month of December. I guess I'll have to get them out and start using them at my dad's - thanks for the memory jog!

Lookin' good! I've made no progress on the album front. I am in the middle of The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan. I finished Water for Elephants a few weeks ago.

Working on FINALLY clearing off the scrap table to make a bday card for my mom, some cards for greg, and get started on those curtains...
