I managed to scrap one more LO before the clock strikes midnight. 🙂
We took this group photo with my new camera on Christmas Day.

Now I can go get ready for New Year’s Eve dinner! 😀 See you all next year!
Finally, this idea of a circular ornament has been put into practice. Better late than never! 🙂
I cut out a circle from a used cardboard box (instant mashed potatoes :)), printed out the 2 sides on normal paper and Mod Podged them for finish:

Then I glued the two sides to the cardboard with Mod Podge and was ready to use another of the marvelous gifts my adorable husband gave me for Christmas: the crop-a-dile (the big bite, too!):
Hole punched, ribbon, and the ornament is ready to be hung.
A little note: pictures are straight out of the camera (the new one, of course!!) – I took them when it was dark (as usual).
In our family, the Christmas season ends on January 6th, and it’s sad to see most of our neighbors have already pulled down the Christmas lights!
I’m really moody today because my parents+grandmother left today, and who knows when we’ll see each other again.. 🙁 But we spent a beautiful, perfect Christmas together and I feel so blessed and lucky.
I was afraid we might not have snow for Christmas, but we indeed had a very white Christmas! 🙂
I did a LO for the Grand Theft LO challenge at ScrapMatters: I lifted this LO

It snowed a lot last week and it lasted for Christmas, but now it’s almost all melted away..
My wonderful husband gave me a beautiful SLR camera for Christmas – better than I could ever dream!! So soon I hope you’ll see much better pics from me. 🙂 In the meantime, this is a pic a took last night with my old camera.
It’s Christmas Eve already!!! Time is just flying by so fast! I’ve been really busy the past week since my parents are visiting and we got ready for Christmas buying a gorgeous 7.5 feet (fake) Christmas tree – it’s gorgeous! I have yet to take some good pictures of it, though.
Our evenings are usually spent playing cards with my parents and grandmother, and we get some good laughs out of it! I did a LO with pictures of me and DH, and will eventually do a 2nd LO with pics of my parents+grandmother.

So now everything is ready for Christmas at our house: we have the most gorgeous tree with a few cute presents underneath it (the calendars I ordered from Artscow have arrived – very pretty indeed! – and are wrapped). I got highlights and a new haircut yesterday. We have plenty of snow outside so we will have the most perfect white Christmas. 🙂
We will have a nice fish dinner tonight, then Midnight Mass, and tomorrow morning, presents, and a lovely Christmas lunch!
Merry Christmas to all!
I don’t have time to blog in these busy days before Christmas, but you gotta check out thw giveaway on Lou’s blog! She’s giving away $150 worth of Cosmo Cricket!!!
Yes, -10 days to Christmas, and we finally put the lights on our little tree this weekend. 🙂 We also finally wrote our Xmas cards… They’ve been ready for weeks, but the task of writing them somehow seemed daunting and we only just got it done. 🙂
Finally my super-busy schedule has relaxed a little and I was able to do a couple of ornaments this weekend.
For the first one I used Candied Christmas by Brianna Cox:
and I prepared 2 different sides for the tree ornament:
For the second one, I used Holly Jolly by Polka Dot Plum:
and I prepared these 2 sides:
I printed on photo paper, cut out the tree shapes with normal scissors and stuck them together with Mod Podge. If you use normal paper, you’ll need the ornament to be more sturdy, so you can cut out a tree shape from cardboard. Here are the ornaments:
I still need to punch a hole in them so I can hang them, but I don’t own a good puncher yet and I’m hoping to find one in my stocking this year! 🙂
-11 days to Christmas!!
