Merry Christmas

Well here I am once again, I don't know why I can't remember to post more often, but  I will try to make up for a couple monthes next month. lol

Christmas is here once again and I have been busy working on projects just for that special day. I had posted a list of things for me to do all this year to be ready for the holidays and I did so so good at following it. I will post websites and pictures of what I made this year for gifts, and the cards. I didn't send out all my cards so I have a start to next year "yeah". 

I will also update my list for next year so if anyone has any idea please share.

Merry Christmas to all my dear friends.

There’s nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.”
~ Erma Bombeck (1927-1996), American author and humorist.

It comes every year and will go on forever. And along with Christmas belong the keepsakes and the customs. Those humble, everyday things a mother clings to, and ponders, like Mary in the secret spaces of her heart.”
~ Marjorie Holmes, American writer.

    My List:

    When you make a list do you follow thru with it?
    Do you do things in order?
    Are you happy with only getting a couple things done on it?

    For me I like to do things in order, but it always dose not happen that way. I made a list back in January about how I was going to make Christmas a little easier this year. 

    Oh here is the list for a update:

  • I will clean up all the Christmas decorations and will start a gift closet in Jan.
  • Feb.-make Christmas cards
  • March make Christmas crafts/gifts
  • April- buy forever stamps for your Christmas Cards.
  • May- buy one gift for every child in my house.
  • June- find crafts (Kids) and recipes for Christmas
  • Christmas in July we are going to do crafts with the kids make a Santa list,watch a Christmas movie.
  • August- Stocking Stuffers- school supplies are on sale.
  • September- Make sure you have supplies for your cookies.
  • October- Address Christmas Cards, make sure I have enough crafts made for everyone.
  • November- rearrange furniture and start getting Christmas decorations out.
  • December- Wrap gifts
  •  Now that I see the list I'm not doing to bad. 

    So this means I'm right on target.

    Have a Great Day :)

    I was challenged at Scrapbook Challenges  to make a layout with the letters in my name and all the letters in my name ment something that you would add to the layout. I was not sure I could pull it off but I do like what it turned out to be, and it did make me use things I normally wouldn't.

    The title is friend and I don't have a picture at this moment that will fit what I want the meaning on the page to be so I used a picture from a card.
