Thanks to all the wonderful visitors for the holiday house party. It is such a pleasure for me to decorate with handmade items from my favorite artists. I have been working on the kids's bedrooms lately, so I'll be back with pictures from there soon. I had such a wonderful time reading through all of your alter ego comments. My little fairy picked the winner..... Congratulations Suzanne~

"Congratulations on your 500th post! I love your blog!My alter ego is an early bird. She's up by 6am every day and by 8 am she's sent made a huge, healthy breakfast for her family, sent them all off to work/school, cleaned the house, finished the laundry and is ready to spend the entire day creating the most perfect projects. She's a mix of June Cleaver and Martha Stewart. LOL!"
Please email me!

This is the day all of the ladies in my 12 Days of Christmas swap have been waiting for. We got to open our first gift...from Miz Smoochie Lips. She made the adorable Christmas bootie above. Love it!

Yesterday I received this fabulous crepe paper tree made with tons of fun vintage goodies from Laurie at Happy As A Lark. Absolutely gorgeous!!


Finally, here are a few more of my Christmas journal pages...

I'm lovin your journal pages. I wish I could get more into scrapbooking but it stresses me out! I keep thinking I have to document and layout every little thing. I love that crepe paper tree - will have to check out her link.
