My 2007 Christmas cards are done!

My Christmas cards are done! Fifty in the can. It seems like I finished them so quickly this year. Now to get onto the Christmas shopping. Oh and the decorations! The kids' playroom tree is up. Now to do the big tree. I know I will love it when I see it done but pulling it out of the attic and assembling. sigh.

I'm a little teapot short and stout.

Okay so I am not a teapot but a tea kettle! Brrr it's so cold here that I thought it was time to break down and buy one! It' so pretty and green. Guess I better start drinking tea huh? lol I do have one tea that I like. It's a vanilla pyramid tea. It's yummy.And I always have my French press.

our visitor

We have a visitor in the backyard....I dropped some bread so that he would come closer so that I could take a picture!

Oh these babies!

How quickly they are growing up. I look at them and I swear I can catch a glimpse of them at 17! It's crazy... but I feel like I can see just a hint of how I think they will look then. They are losing their baby features so quickly. All of these pictures are from this weekend.

my saturday creation.....

I loved this bead collection- milky stones mixed with crystals, clear glass beads in assorted shapes, and white glass beads with yellow/orange sunbursts. Now I just need to work on my photography skills to really highlight the beads!

My newest creation.....

My friend, Sharon, found this beautiful necklace on a blog and sent it to I kind of recreated it. The original was a beauty and I am proud of this one as well!

This is a great hobby though I can see how the money adds up fast! I won't tell how much I have spent on gorgeous beads! Lol let's just say I better start figure out how to make some money off it! Or start making Christmas presents!

two new layouts......

When G made this comment I ran to write this down! It just struck me so funny I had to scrap it!

This picture is from NIcolas' day of registering for kindergarten. This is where he discovered the playground. I think he still thinks it's a park!
