New layout

Not much new going on, Mia has been sick the past couple days. I did manage to get a new layout done. It feels like weeks since I've scrapped!

I am in an ornament swap where I have to make 10 ornaments, and in return I will recieve ornaments from 10 different people. I am so excited and I will show you once I get them! Mia was sick today, so she stayed on the sofa and kept me company while I finished my ornaments. They turned out sooo cute! There is only enough ribbon left over for 1 ornament for myself, so I am going to grab some more this weekend to make for my tree.

I made this for another Christmas themed swap I am in and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I will be making more of these!

I wish I had more time! There are sooo many things I want to do before Christmas. URGH!!!!!! I just found these ADORABLE ornaments on Martha Stewart. Maybe this will be a project for next year.

Oh, and we had our first snow! Yipee!

Ok, have to make dinner. Have a great night!

Nothing much happened over the weekend, all I did was work :(, but I did manage to snag the free photobook Oprah was offering from Snapfish! Yippee! Gotta love free stuff! Talk more later!

I am so excited Christmas is coming! Some people get mad that the stores have had Christmas stuff up weeks before Halloween, but I love it! In my opinion, the season isn't LONG enough, lol! I started shopping months ago for the girls, and since Mia wanted an American Girl Doll for Christmas, and that taking up most of my spending limit on her, shopping has been alot easier. Since her Birthday is the day after Christmas, I plan on giving her all the accesories for her doll on her Birthday. Ella is easy, lol. Webkins, Webkins, and more Webkins!
I thought I'd share the first Holiday decoration I bought this year! I LOVE LOVE LOVE those little cardboard houses with the fake snow. I have decided I am going to start collecting them. As a child, my grandparents had a little village of them, and every year, I would love to just sit and look at them.

I have noticed this year, all the decorations are more traditional, unlike last year. Last year everywhere I went there were shabby, sweet decorations. Kinda makes me sad. :(

I joined a Snowman theme swap this year, and am SO excited about it! I will upload pics of what I got when it comes!

Things that make me happy right now: I have started sewing. Now I have never followed a pattern in my life. One day I discovered these ADORABLE skirts on Etsy (Which has become my favorite site!) and I fell in love with them, so I decided to give it a try. Here is an example :
and here are the things I have made so far:

So I plan on sweing a lot more in the future!
