They are all such blessings to me and my family. Nana, Papa, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins blessing each other each year with gifts of love!

Christmas Fun 2015

I hope everyone had a very blessed Christmas celebration! I know that I did. In fact, I was very blessed this year - some may even say spoiled! Want to see why??? Of course you do! Check out my spoil:



Yup, my husband and kids got me the new Explore Air 2. So excited! As soon as it was "okay" to sneak off and play I immediately went to the craftroom and got it set up!



And, created a couple of quick projects!

Ok now that that's off my chest here is a sketch challenge that I participated in!

I am just about finished scrapbooking last Christmas. Yup, just in time to begin scrapbooking this Christmas. Well, at least I'm not years behind anymore! With that said, there is a great sketch over at Sketch n Scrap this month that I decided to use for this layout.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is definitely the time of year where we are reminded that we should be thankful. We are so blessed, with so much. When I begin to really think about everything I have, that I've been given, been able to experience, my home, my family, my friends - I am truly humbled. I don't deserve any of it, yet the Lord has seen fit to bless me beyond expectation. 

This year has brought many changes in our lives. We recently made a move to Coeur d'Alene, Id and the kids are going to a new school. We have actually been homeschooling for the past two years so I was able to develop a special appreciation for what the teachers in our school do everyday. So, when we were given the opportunity to bless our teachers with a luncheon during parent/teacher conference week I decided to make some goodies to add a little thank you to their lunch. 

This came at a perfect time for Fantabulous Cricut blog's challenge this week. The challenge was to create a thank you project. Below is a picture of a part of the centerpieces and thank you boxes that I created using my cricut for the teachers.









Thank you so much for stopping by!



Happy Thanksgiving!
