Christmas LO's

Well I found some time to scrapbook Saturday! I've been dying to work on my Christmas and vacation albums since before Christmas. I feel like a little kid at Christmas about it. I can't sleep at night because I've been lying in bed thinking about it.. I know it's silly but it's true!
Even at work I can't get my mind off it! It's pure torture I say! I guess I'll have to squeeze in a little time in the afternoon, after work, here and there to get them completed. I'm ready for the time to change back so it will not be dark so early. When it gets dark I feel like I should have on my pj's and be ready for bed.
I'm totally into snowflakes this year!! :)
Hope everyone is having a good week!

Cathy's little slice of Heaven (above pic)

My slice of Heaven (below pic) See our ribbon holders that my dad made? Super cool huh?

C & C Craft Shack

(view from the outside door) The other door is for the storage area) my desk then hers.
Cathy and I in the garage (where she and I used to scrap) packing up her things waiting on the guys to hurry and lay the carpet! We were so impatient that day. It was so funny. We had to leave because we were so antsy. We went to Lowe's and bought stuff. :) (below pic)

Here is the craft shack before.. we moved in. There is Cathy- my new mom

We feel completely blessed!! Daddy built us a gorgeous mini-house . We had our first little get together today. I actually scrapped!! I accomplished 5 sb pages!! Woohoo!! So what do you think of our new crafting shack? It's actually Cathy's-my new-mom but she shares with me..:) She has named it C&C Craft Shack. I live only 5 minutes away. Good thing for me huh? Because I want to move back home right now!! LOL

We are having a lady over to paint scriptures and other things on the wall. Hopefully that will be finished this week. We bought fabric and vinyl for the tables. How do you like it? It even has a little room in the back for storage. My table is the one with the lamp and white cabinet to the side.

Cathy's side is the one near the back wall with the 3 white shelves. I love the colors she picked out. She knows I love pink! ;) We have extra tables for crops and friends who want to bring their crafts over. I will post the paintings when it is completed. We still have some storage stuff to buy and that will come with time.

We have an exciting trip planned in two week. They are having a big stamping expo in Atlanta. I can't wait! It's going to so much fun. Has anyone ever been?

I am also going to be able to visit Archiver's again!! It's a scrappers dream store!!

FYI- Hobby Lobby has SB albums 50% I just bought 2

Vacation 08

Haley fell off the sled. They loved snow sledding! I've got some great video of them!

Lacey was a pro!

Me and Clint and Mark in the back ground

Me, Lacey and Haley in front of Niagara Falls, -On the Canadian side. We also saw the Dare Devil Movie at the IMAX there. Really cool video if you've never saw it!

I took my supplies with me in case I got bored.
I did manage to get in a little scrapping. It was so nice doing it by the fire place!

Lacey, Haley and Carole before going ice skating. I was really surprised. The girls took off like little pros! I was so proud of them!

Well we are back!! We had an awesome time! We traveled all the way up the east coast to PA and stayed with some friends. We got to see Niagara Falls, Lake Erie, the girls got to go ice skating and snow sledding for the very first time. We thought we were not going to be able to get into Canada to see the Falls but they finally let us through. Tip: have your birth certificate or passport. ;) We were going to visit Hershey, PA but I was ready to be home. And it's a good thing we came home because Clint got really really sick on the way home.

He has ran a fever for over 4 days now. The doctor said it's not the flu but I'm not so sure. If you're a prayer warrior please lift up a prayer for him. It's hard enough going back to work after vacation much less if you're sick!
