It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
I LOVE this time of year! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the best family in the world and the most FABulous food. I had the honor of cooking the turkey this year. My very first time, and as scared as I was that I was going to ruin it...it was wonderful. You would have peed your pants laughing listening to my phone call the night before asking my mother why on earth she dropped that turkey off at my house?! Thank goodness for foodnetwork.com. LOL! So in all, I did the turkey, stuffing, and potatoes...and as usual, all of the pies. I couldn't have asked for a better day!
It's tradition for us to put up our Christmas lights the day after Thanksgiving, and this year was no exception. Jason got all of the Christmas lights up and they are FABulous, he always does such a great job. I will post some pics tonight or tomorrow. I just love coming home after work, turning the corner onto our street, and seeing that winter wonderland all lit up. Well as close to a winter wonderland as you can get in Florida. ;o) Today we will put up the tree and I will do some more decorating in the house. That always seems like a never-ending job. I hate when it's time to take it all down. But for now, I will enjoy it...and I will leave you guys with a couple of goodies we did at club last week.
You guys know I don't do too many scrap book layouts...I just don't feel like I'm very good at them. They are always a struggle for me, but hey, everynow and then I give it a go. ;o) The picture is actually a bit old, of my oldest, when we were visiting PA for x-mas one year. I've always loved the set of photos we got that year while walking through the woods at my in-laws.
And this little tile uses Stampin' Up!'s Glassy Glaze Enamel and the Dasher stamp. Simple and elegant. I stamped the image, covered with glassy glaze and baked in the oven. There are a ton of tutorials on various blogs if you've never seen this technique. It's been around quite a while.
And finally, another fun tag. Check out that layout, it is just begging to be used over and over to make a set. Don't you think?! And...it's not too late to join in the Tag It Challenge. There are such great ideas out there for tags!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are having fun decorating for "the most wonderful time of the year"!
