Ten Things

I’ve been so into Christmas lately, and have been gathering ideas for what to make and do during the month of December when ever I’ve had a few minutes to spare. Many of these I’ve pinned on my Christmas board. Here are my 10 favorite ideas, so far:

I’m still on the look out for December / Christmas ideas and inspiration, please share and link me up here in the comments – or on Pinterest.

Thanks for stopping by! :D

Just a little note to let you know I’m not dead. Thankfully. But the season has been good, busy and filled with joy + a little bit of sickness. So there you have it, the reason I’ve been away for a while…

As usual I’m up way past my bedtime, so I’ll make this short and sweet. 😀 I just wanted to share a few news about a designer I CT for: Sweet Tomato Designs. Cara has decided to move her designs to one store only (where that is will be told on January 1st; follow her blog for updates). Because she is leaving her current three stores she’s having a huge sale right now. Click image below to jump to her store at Pretty Scrappy. (But hurry, her store(s) closes tomorrow.)


I made this LO with her last kit I Believe (I also used a template of hers):

Hope to be back soon!! I have so many things to share and show. I see that I have to fix the heading image as well – it’s winter around here and it’s snow, snow, snow and freezing cold. Right now 18 degrees Centigrade below zero. Brrr.. I’m bringing a wool blanket to bed tonight! HAPPY NEW YEAR!


December Daily 2009 – a start

I had some fun yesterday evening, working some more on my advent/christmas album. I’m inspired by Ali Edwards and (more recently) by this image:

– and this post by Janet Phillips of the Daily Digi to take a change on getting this busy season documented in real time (more or less). I can’t wait to start adding photos – to the pages.

Yesterday I proceeded to work some more on the front page. I found some photos from last December and made a collage of a few of my favorites, as the thunderstorm approached I sat down and tried my best to make a front page with real glue, scissors and papers (I’m used to go all digital) – and found that I wasn’t happy with the result at all (bummer!) – but I love the collage!

This morning I’ve figured out a different approach – I think I’m starting to get it together (so far only in my imagination). The original collage for the front will now end up making the back side beautiful. And then I will use only one photo at the front, layered with different papers and whatever I can find. I have good hopes for this image, it makes me smile just looking at it:

I guess there will be more changes when December rolls around (or rather late November when Advent season is starting). This is going to be both fun and challenging, hopefully I can pull it off even thought it’s a really busy time and I’m at a new place. Make it simple is what I’m trying to live after. I wonder if I can do that 😉

Happy Monday, people!
