New Plans for 2016

Inspiration Moments

As I was working on my new planner from Close to My Heart so many things were popping into my head. Projects and Ideas were husband said that I will have to live to 300 to get all that "stuff" done.  I sure hope not. I'm so excited about the New Year and new things to come. First I just want you to know that I love my new planner. I'm so excited about making the planner mine and will be posting as I go along.  This got me to thinking that I need a more planed organized approach to my blog.  So the first thing I plan to do is post some things I've working on the last part of the year. The second thing I plan to do is Update my blog.  So stay tuned for new and improved ! {I hope}

Christmas Memories

White Pines Christmas

These layouts are for our next scrapbooking class scheduled for January. The layouts use the White  Pines paper pack, embellishments, compliments, and Picture My Life cards.  I love to create layouts using the products. I can make traditional pages and embellish as much as I want, but using the Picture My Life products let me add more pictures quickly and matching products make it so easy.

I haven't added pictures yet waiting to have them printed. I have decided to scrapbook lots of the routine thing that happen in December. The preparations, shopping, cooking, decorations and of course my beautiful grandkids, family and friends.

Here are some pictures of my layouts so far. I will include a list of supplies I used at the end of the pictures.

I only used one sheet of paper for the main layouts and only one pocket page.  I did cut some paper to add to the pocket pages. (the white card stock was added only for the photos)

Supplies used

White Pines paper pack
White Pines compliments
White Pines embellishments
White Pines PML cards
Vertical page protector
CTMH inks  Fern, Pomegranate and black
Conner rounder, Wink of Stella {clear}

My Year In Review 2015

Oh What a year!

My year has been a busy one. So I decided to share some of the highlights with you guys.
We have finally put our old house on the Market. We have decided to try to sale ourselves for awhile before we give it to a realtor.  Kind of sad...of course I had to scrap it.

We added a crazy Dog to our family.  We enjoyed football, basketball, volleyball games, first time drivers, Halloween, and of course Home Coming, and the Prom.  We even had an Owl party.

We celebrated Birthdays, special days with our grandchildren, and even managed a family vacation and a motorcycle trip with our friends.

Of course there was some work, some fun work and some crafting.
Crafting class made frame wreaths
 My son-in-law and I made snowmen and trees to sale. We made many...many trees!
 Gifts I made for my crafty friends

Then it was Christmas. My favorite time of the year. Although it seemed like summer here with the temperature around 70 degrees.  At our house we have a couple of traditions with our family that we try to do each year.  My husband and I take our grandkids to the lights at Bristol Speedway. We leave early and eat lunch then visit the light show. I think our favorite thing is the little market they have in the middle of the race track. Little shops, food, and rides for kids. Christmas for our family starts on a Friday and ends on Sunday.  It's not always on Christmas but our girls and their families spend the whole weekend together. We cook, eat, play games, exchange gifts, and sometimes take a nap or two.

Some of us at the end of our celebration. A strange group we are!

Well that's some of the things that have kept me busy this year. I have been truly blessed this year with my health, my Husband {who supports me and puts up with me}, my family and my home. God has blessed us with these gifts. I pray that he will bless us and guide us in the year to come.

I haven't been very good at posting on a regular schedule. That is one of my main projects this year, so.....stay tuned.
