What I've been up to

Hello all!  Well obviously I haven't been spending anywhere NEAR enough time on my blog, and definitely not enough time papercrafting.  Here's part of the reason why:

My husband and I just returned from a cruise to Cozumel.  Ya, I know, it's been rough - 80 degree weather in December, shows every night, food that I didn't have to cook...  Honestly, it weirded me out a little hearing Christmas music playing and seeing decorations all over the ship.  It just didn't seem right!  It was wonderful though - very relaxing and nice to be able to spend that one on one time with my husband.

I got home just in time to get ready for family to arrive for Christmas, so it's been a little hectic, but in the best way possible.  I have been doing some crafting though.  Here's one of the presents that I made:

12 Days of Christmas

Hello my bloggy friends!  I hope that you are all feeling the warmth and joy that the holiday season brings.  And since I know that you are all fellow crafters, I hope that you have left yourself enough time to get the projects/gifts done that you need to, and that you're OK with plan B if they don't get done!  LOL!  I really do love to make and give homemade gifts whether it be cards, homemade soap, or baked goods to name a few.  This year has been a little different than in the past because as many of you know I moved and started a job a month ago.  Well, now I'm leaving on a cruise in a couple of days!  Hooray for my wonderful husband and the good job that he did at work that earned him an all expense paid trip!  But needless to say, I'm having to change my expectations this year as far as what I'm going to have time to make.

I have the perfect solution if you're needing a little holiday crafting inspiration:  My Pink Stamper's 12 Days of Christmas!  Check it out:

I'm still here...

Have you been wondering where I've been?  Well, I've been in my new home for a month now and we're starting to feel a little more settled.  It's been a little crazy though!  I started a part-time job the same weekend that I moved - I know, what was I thinking?  I've been looking for a little while and it kind of fell in my lap.  It was the right thing to do, but it hasn't been easy.  Although setting up my craft room was one of the first things I did, most nights I am so exhausted that it is the furthest thing from my mind.  But I know I'm in good company, so who am I to whine?

I have invited some ladies over to my home Saturday night for some crafting time, so I thought I would share one of the cards that I designed for the occasion.
