what have I been doing?





Is this not the MOST WONDERFUL piece of Christmas holiday decor you have ever seen??

ok, the two of you who read my blog are wondering where are those swell Christmas projects Ericka was raving about?? or maybe not. but I am going to show you some today anyway. My scrapbook room looks like it has been ransacked by other crafters who have a vendetta against me. There is absolutely NO method of organization in place at the moment. It is really starting to bother me. I can't find anything in here but instead of cleaning and try to sort through this madness....I will post pictures of my beautiful projects instead!! hehehe!


My Noel sign (tribute to Noel Joy! ;) )makes me so very very happy!! I used the chipboard letters from Creative Imaginations Bare Elements. The paper is from MM and BG. I inked the edges (because there is very little that is safe from inking with me around!) and added some gorgeous BG white swirl rub-ons. Add a little paint, some jingle bells and pretty ribbon and you have this wonderful piece of lushesness to decorate your home!! Maybe I am a little over the top with excitement but it just makes me GUSH!!!! LOVE IT!!


I have also been a card making fool (Mandy can attest to that, the card-making that is, not the fool part). Besides the 40 Christmas cards I hand made, I am making 5 sets of 12 cards as gifts for teachers and Grandmas. Here are just two sets-already gave one set away & working on two more sets.









throw in some frames to alter

and I am tired but ready to keep going!!! I still have ornaments to make, art boards, and some more frames before everything is done. But I love creating & I can't wait to get back to scrapping actual pages again!! So, there you have it! This is what I have been doing!! :)

I love your NOEL decoration. It is so cute. I'll have to scraplift that idea. Boy, I'll say you have been very busy, but everything looks great. Neat gifts. Thanks for sharing. I guess I'm getting over my "not wanting to go to blogs to post." LOLOL
