My Holiday Break

 ~ HI EVERYONE ~
Well, my holiday break is slowly coming to end, boo-hoo!
My dear family members that have come to stay with us for Christmas and New Years are slowly making an exodus back to their homes. 
It was such a blessing to have them here with me...
ALL 11 OF THEM !!!
During that time we HAD SO MUCH FUN laughing, playing games, eating meals together, and participating in family traditions. It's was like a 10 day long pajama party !!! But alas, it's time for me and my husband to go back to work, the college kids back to school, the grandkids back to Utah and the grandmas back to Florida.
Since everyone lives in a different states, it is really a special time for us. But one of the FUNNEST (is that a word?) FOR ME was crafting with the family.
Here are a couple of projects we did together...

On Christmas Eve we sat around the kitchen table and made 16 glitter ball ornaments ! I think still they need a little somin, somin, so my plan is to personal  them with names and monograms and bring them back out next Christmas to add to the tree !
On 12-30-2010 my son Jaime and his lovely wife Sheridan celebrated their ONE year wedding anniversary! I made them this card. I decided to try a few techniques I don't usually do, namely inking, decorating and placing the sentiment inside . I think this will be my crafting new year's resolution...TRY SOMETHING NEW AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK IN 2011 :)


Lastly, for New Years Eve, my grandson and I made some some Party Hats !!! What a HOOT!!! What 4 year old boy wouldn't love a pirate hat !




I'm SO EXCITED for the NEW YEAR and all the fun things to look forward to in our little crafting world ! THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO SHARE YOUR AMAZING TALENTS AND EVERYONE WHO HAS SO KINDLY VISITED MY BLOG AND FOR THE SWEET, SWEET COMMENTS YOU'VE LEFT THROUGHOUT 2010 !!! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY BLOGGY FRIENDS !!!!
MAY ALL YOUR DREAMS FOR 2011 COME TRUE !!!
Pin It!
