Every year since each of my children has been born, I have bought them a dated ornament for Christmas. The idea was that when they own their own homes, they will have a collection of ornaments for their trees. I am pleased to say both own homes and now have a box of ornaments. I kept a handwritten list but decided to make an album with pictures of each ornament.

Our tree is going to look very different this year without these ornaments!!

O Christmas Tree

Moxie Fab World is having a Tree Mendous Tree Challenge. I figured this would be a good way to play with washi tape! Added some twine and sequins to complete the tree!

Give Thanks

I have been playing along with Tracy  for some time now. On Monday nights Tracy hosts a Mixed Media show. She uses a variety of mediums and creates canvases or art journal pages. The October/November creative dare was to create a piece inspired by a Monday Mixed Media show.

Here is Tracy's piece from 11/3

ANd here is mine

I chose to make my flower hearts our of book paper. I haven't done a journal page like this in a bit so this was fun!!!

Thanks Tracy for the inspiration  and for all your shows!!

Christmas Card

I am pleased to be Guest Designer today over at SketchNScrap. Here is the card sketch

Here is my card

Would love for you to stop by their blog SketchNScrap and play along!


It has been two weeks since I got my new knee! While I am doing quite well, the mojo and stamina has been lacking. But, yesterday  I managed to complete a layout!!

I used this sketch from Stucksketches

And I was inpsired by this photo from CreatvieEmbellishments

Here is my layout. I love the warm autumn colors and tried to pull them out in the cluster. I am so thankful that each of my children has found the person they  want to spend the rest of their lives with. In Oct. 2013 my daughter got engaged. In Fed 2014 my son did. In sept. 2014 my daughter got married and my son will be married next  June. I went with them as they got their engagement photos and this is one of the ones I took.
This was one of Rob and Beth's engagement photos! Love the door background!

DCWV Spiced  Cider Stack! Have a CE circle punched out element.
