It's Almost Christmas!

Holy moly! Christmas is mere days away and I have been missing in action. The truth of the matter is that this Christmas season has somewhat gotten away from me. Life has been very busy on the home front and I honestly have not had much time for Christmas crafting and unfortunately, even Christmas cheer. But I am bound and determined to try to salvage some Christmas. Today, on one of my first free afternoons in weeks, I am going to try to attempt some Christmas crafting. And I'm going to be printing some of these to brighten up my Christmas wrapping.

(My printer is lacking in ink and having already braved the holiday crowds today, this is as good as it is going to get--but, hopefully, you can still get the idea of how cute these freebies from Close to My Heart are).

So even if you are ready for Christmas, print off some of these darling tags to brighten your Christmas wrapping or projects. And if like me, you're a bit overwhelmed this year, print them off just to simplify your Christmas wrapping (and make it look like you were a little more on top of it than you actually were--wink). 

Merry Christmas!

Cherish Your Memories in December

December is underway! But, lest any of you may be behind and suffering guilt because of it, please know that my Christmas shopping is not done, my Christmas cards are not made yet, and not all of my Christmas decor is up. But the Christmas music is playing and the Christmas spirit is alive and well at my house.

And with that confession, I'm a little slow getting my pages posted for this month's Cherish Your Memories workshop. The class was posted on Facebook a while ago but I didn't quite get to the blog post (again, please don't look to me for perfection--I'm trying to keep up just like everyone else). But here they are! I just need to go through my archived Christmas photos to find the perfect ones or add some from this year's festivities.

The class will be Friday, December 6th in Salt Lake City or Saturday, December 7th in Provo. I may have an extra packet or two if you haven't already RSVP'ed or I am happy to provide a kit if you can't attend or RSVP'ed too late. This kit includes the Sparkle & Shine paper packet, the Sparkle & Shine Complements, a cutting guide, the Cricut cuts (from the Artbooking cartridge) and any additional cardstock you may need. Contact me if you are interested.

Happy December! And Merry Christmas!
