Santa was here!

When I first saw how little was under the tree I was like OMG poor Ty is getting nothing this Christmas.

Then I realized a few things. He didn't have a huge list, he has been spoil all month by family members and his birthday is a month away. Oh yeah and he has a room filled with toys.

I have to remind myself that we didn't add to out debt this Christmas since we paid cash for everything we bought this year and that Christmas isn't all about how you got but about giving to others and being there for others.

The best part was he loved everything he got and didn't feel at all like he was missing out!

As for me I finally got a KINDLE!!! I am so happy with it! Plus I got a surprise gift the Ty picked out. He picked out jammies and a hat, mittens, scarf set!

Matt got a new controller thingy for his fleet of r/c helicopters and Ty picked him out a Camo Snuggie and the Clapper...yes the Clapper!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Christmas Ornamants

I made a few Christmas ornaments for the tree this year.

Nothing fancy just rolled paper and some ribbon. They made a great addition in the tree and they are light weight so they don't pull down on the branches of the tree.

I had a lot of fun making these and even my son got to help!

Frilly Tree

My super creative friend Chez(blog on the side...must check it out)made these SUPER cute frilly trees for Crate Paper project. So once I saw them I had to make them. So off to the craft store I go.

I picked up a cute topiary tree to make my frilly tree!

I used My Minds Eye pattern paper, K&Co chipboard embellishments and diamond dust around the inside of the "pot" of the tree. I wish I could have found some fringe scissors....it would have made the cutting the pattern paper much easier.

So here is my vision of the Chez frilly trees!

Thanks for looking!

Time is Flying

I can't believe it is the 8th of December already!

This past weekend was the Christmas gathering with my cousins from my mom's side of the family. It had been a while since we have all been together because of every one's schedules. It was great seeing everyone and getting to reconnect! They also spoiled my son with lots of Christmas presents. He was in heaven!

I can't wait to see how some of the pictures came out and will post when I get them uploaded.

As far as Christmas goes I only have one more present to buy and that one is for the hubby. Otherwise all presents are bought and in gift bags. I normal wrap but this year I am going the gift bag route.

All I have left to do is some baking for this weekends Christmas gathering for Matt's family and taking out Christmas picture, making the card and sending those out. Thank goodness for digital scrapbooking and Send Out Cards!

Thanks for reading!

Since I am had some time today in between meeting with several people on dad's care giving team. I uploaded a new background for the Christmas season!

Alright I have to work on a few things for my jewelry business before I pick up Ty from school.

Check back tomorrow for a crafty project!

Day 3 Christmas Crafts

I had so much fun rolling the pattern paper and hot glueing the wreath I decided to make a few smaller ones. They can be hung as wreaths or hung on a tree as a big ornament.

I have been having so much fun making these that I am thinking I may have to get some more paper and make a few more as gifts for some of my friends!

Thanks for checking out my Blog and thank you paperissues.blogspot.com for this challenge!
