1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? I used to like Egg Nog but not anymore, now it's hot chocolate all the way!
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Right now he wraps them. I'm still in the process of thinking about new traditions for our family. ;)

Ok, if you want to do that's fine if not... that's ok ;)

So, you know how I said I was going to wrap gifts last week... still haven't done it! I am so bad! Still waiting on my magnet calendars and on my Christmas photocards to come in from Winkflash, it's been a week. I'm hoping they don't have to much of a delay. I got my calendars in for my inlaws, they turned out pretty good. Only thing we didn't really like was how November came out to red on our picture. Excuse the bad pictures of them... it's my point & shoot. lol

We still have snow on the ground but it's slowly melting. Tally didn't really care for it so I didn't get many pictures like I wanted. The ones I did get were crappy. Should have used Matt's camera. ;)

Few pages using Atomic Cupcakes stuff... Not my best work but they turned out ok!

Then we have one here that I used with Mindy Terasawas Lil Trouble Maker kit...

I think that's all for today! Going to get started on cleaning up my office, we are about to move my craft desk in here and get rid of my P.O.S. desk!


  1. i love your pages/pictures. I really like the snow page. Im sorry the calendar's colors didn't work out but you family will love them.

  2. Crazy how those questionaires make the rounds. huh?

    Great pictures and pages. Sorry Tally didn't take to the snow. Maybe next time. ;)

  3. Those calendars are to DIE for.... wow I should get by butt in gear next year do to a project like that.
    It's so difficult to get your work printed in true colour, I know I used to work at a print shop :0)

  4. It all looks great to me! Love how the calendar's turned out. So black or white for you?

  5. Your calendar is AWESOME! AND...WOW, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that last in love with this...girl, you need a link to your gallery on the side bar so I can leave you love ;)
