It has been a while since I really posted. Things have been so busy. The girls went back to school today and the quiet is comforting and eerie at the same time. I do miss them already but I am looking forward to getting some things done today. The first being getting back to posting here regularly.
What a wonderful holiday season we had. We spent Christmas with my in-laws. Sadly I didn't get pictures of everyone because my sweet niece and my brother-in-law were sick. We ended up opening presents in shifts. The girls made clay recipe card holders for all the women in the family and ornaments for the men.
My girls are getting to an age where buying them Christmas gifts is getting hard. Neither of them really care a ton about clothes, they don't play video games much and when they do it is usually on their iPod touches and the games they usually download games that are free. They don't beg or ask for much. It makes Christmas shopping tough. DH came up with a wonderful gift idea for them this year. We were able to get them new Colts jerseys for a great price and then put an envelope below the jerseys. In the envelope were 4 tickets to the December 30th game.
Lots of games and good food followed. :)
We were home long enough to unpack Christmas presents and then we headed to Indy for the game. L kept repeating, "This is the BEST Christmas present ever!" I think the present was a hit! :)
I have been enjoying one of my Christmas presents too. My sweet DH got me a Silhouette Cameo. I am one happy mama! :) I have spent some time playing with it and have not completely figured it out yet but I have created a few files I am really happy with. I am using one of them on a layout I am creating for Emma's. Here is a link to the file I am using today, hopefully this works. :) You can find it here. I can't share the layout yet but I will when I can. I am still having a lot of problems with the knife tool on the Silhouette. If you can help me, please send me an e-mail! :)
Since we are on a football theme, I thought I would share this layout I created for Emma's Paperie spotlighting Basic Grey.
You can find the supply list here.
Have a wonderful week and I will be back soon!
