Today I can only share sneak peeks as these pages are from 2 mini books that I created as Christmas gifts.

The first pages are from an 8x8 album and show some photos of my son Thomas playing guitar.  I never worked in this size before and I really enjoyed it.  The pages came together very quickly.

and the next two are from a shaped chipboard mini and are just showing our new kitten and a tree.

After Christmas I will be sure to share 
both books with you all!  

I am going to share my sneak peek over at 
in their two week challenge #214.

Hope you are enjoying your holiday preparations.  I am not doing much other than gifts this year because we are hoping to move from this dreadful mold infected apartment ASAP so no tree, no decorations and because they never fixed the oven no Christmas cookies. But, next year I hope to be in a happier healthier place and will be able to share do and share so much more of this wonderful loving season.

I am expecting company later today for two weeks so between visiting with him, packing and hopefully moving I may not have many posts until after the New Year but please stay tuned for my upcoming creations and whereabouts!

Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year 
to all of you and your families.

Thank you for stopping by and remember...all coments are gratefully appreciated!

I'M BACK!!!!

So sorry for the long lapse in posts.  I had a wonderful trip with my son Thomas to visit a dear old friend in Nashville, TN.  We had an awesome time and I just developed 400 photos! So, you will get to eventually share in a lot of our fun and sight-seeing!

I have not gotten to do much creating but I do have a few things to share...

While I was away I found a Hobby Lobby and did a bit of shopping and I created a gift tag for Thrifty Thursday challenge over at Addicted 2 Paper Dolls.  They only had 2 dolls in stock that I didn't have.  This one is Mindy.

My next share is for the December card sketch over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  

Here's the sketch-

and here is my card -

I am also going to enter this card over at 
Word Art Wednesday for challenge #212.

and my last share for tonite is part of my package for an angel gift at church.  The gift is part of a package for an 11 year old girl whose favorite colors are pink and white.  

and a few close-ups-

I hope to get back to working on my Christmas presents this week in between packing and apartment hunting.

and now I am off to bed!  Sweet Dreams!
