Well, it's come to another end of another year.....It's super close to so long 2010 and helllllllooooo 2011. Time sure does fly by and so I am taking time to submit my entries to the MOJO MONDAY #171 Challenge. I had fun doing this challenge because I was able to do both and use my newest stamp set! yippeeee!
So it's just a few days after Christmas and I don't see as many lights and decorations ..... booo hooo. I love looking at all the lights. They are so pretty and the thing is, I don't care if it's one strand or 50, they are just pleasing to look at. Any spirit is better than no spirit and (that is just my opinion).
I took my tree down today and began to wonder just how many ornaments I had and how many were put on my tree. I didn't count cause this was so after I got going, but I am betting it's near 1,000. I love each and every one of them.They each have a little story behind them.Even if it isn't a big ol' mushy story, there is a little something significant about each one. :) I love them and continue to add to them. So, I supposed next Christmas time I will pull them out and count them. :)
I'm really happy to have had such a blessed Christmas & a wonderful family.
Thank you God, Lora

Christmas was great! I especially hope yours was a hit! We went and had Christmas Breakfast at my mom's then we shimmied on over the in in-laws for Christmas lunch. Perfect! I've managed to update my slide (to the right) and I'm not even done. All my little do-dad projects aren't posted, but I'll get there soon enough.
We;re almost at a new year! I can't believe that 2011 is just around the corner and 6 days away.....Time flies by. It's going to be an even better year. There is tons to be done and trips to be made this upcoming year.
On the scrappy side of life, I already have my first scrappy retreat lined up for the first weekend of the new year. I have tons to do and hope that I get a whole lot done. Of course I like to talk, so I'm not sure what the chances are that I will get all my scrappy projects done. We'll see......
Hope you enjoyed your Christmas and have a splendid New Year's! As for me and the family, we'll be with close friends and then home.....Nice and safe.
I have been missing due to the holidays,but I did manage to try out for the 7kids Design Team! I have made quite a bit of things as of late,but just have been going and going with getting out of school and Christmas. Once this madness is over, I can and WILL post my goodies! There is always something being made,so that is not a problem. I so wish I could post as fast as I make things. (don't you?)
Aside from that exciting news, I have all my shopping done. Last minute, but oh Walgreen's is the place to go for gift cards. I didn't have to stop at all these places! LOVE IT! However, gift cards are not much fun to wrap!
We wish you all a very,very Merry Christmas & a poppin' New Year!
Today it was actually cool. It has been around 80 degrees here in South Texas so we actually hadn't had cool weather. I personally don't like cool weather, but it sure does make it seem proper for the holidays. We got our lights up and the tree has been up for about a week. I'm not looking forward to the Christmas shopping that follows up to Christmas. : (
Some people go absolutely nuts! I think I am up for getting gifts and making them simple. I love to be into everything , but at the same time I am simple. Doesn't make much sense,I know.......oh well!
On to projects....I have completed a gift I was making. Nothing hard, but procrastination sets in and then I am mush.The best thing is that I am cleaning my space and actually seeing progress. What space ? my crafty space that is.
Laundry is almost done as I sit here and babble....Oh how I do not like doing laundry that takes all day! Hope you have a great Monday since it's now just after midnight!
I am so surprised at how time flies. I don't take naps, I stay up late, get up early and still............no time. The time just flashes by. I should go to sleep early, eat breakfast and take my time,but my mind goes 100 mph. I am constantly thinking of things I want to make, have made, where I want to go, trips I want to take, what my family wants to do, would like to do and will do.I think I make my husband and other people dizzy with all my ideas! I do not get tired and I love to plan. Plan,plan,plan...
Speaking of time....we just spent 2 days in Kerrville,Texas and Fredricksburg,Tx. hiking Enchanted Rock (which is a Texas must) and all the wonderful shops like an old time village. Here are some of the shots I managed to get. So pretty. So tranquil.
This is the view going in....see the peeps at the top? ....well, that's not the real top..... ;P
Below ) another beautiful view.....
Kids had a fun time trying to find the smallest leaf.....
