Hi ya'll I hope this post finds ya'll in GREAT spirits !
Is everyone done with their Christmas shoppin' ?
Every year I swear I am NOT gonna wait till the last minute to finish but guess what ?!?!?.................yepp you guessed it I'm NOT done =( I still have some handmades I need to get started & finished up, some gifts for the kids I still haven't picked up & bakin' to do. I did start a lil bit of my bakin' last night. I hafta' work the next 9 days straight (I get Sunday off only) so I'm gonna' be a busy beaver every night after work since I won't be able to do anything during the day. Ya' know Willa @ The Old Cupboard Door had a post the other day titled Hurry Hurry Hurry (click the link to go read it) and she is soooo right it does seem like we always need to hurry hurry hurry for somethin'.
I was blog hoppin' the other day and I found this wonderful new blog called Prim In A Small Town (<~~~link )
Pam is new to the bloggin' world so let's all go over and give her a BIG welcome to blog land ! She has some awesome pics of her home and things she hand makes. What a small world we live in too cause she is a fellow southern Indiana Hoosier ! Click on the link above and head on over to Pam's blog to say hello.
This is what I've been workin' on. Sorry it's not a prim craft to share. I haven't gotten my sewing machine out in a lil over a week, but I will tonight to start those gifts. I also love to do paper crafts. So I started my Christmas book for this years Christmas pictures. I try to make one every year so we can add that years pictures to it. I need to take pics of years past books and share.
Anyway here are a few pages I have done.....
This is the front of my book.....
On the inside cover I have the year 2009 and I leave blank spaces for everyone to write a fav memory about that years Christmas
This page has a lil tags where I will write down things about the season and put pics of our home decked out for the holidays.
This page will have a picture of our main Christmas Tree
This page will have a picture of the whole family
Not sure what i will put on this page yet. Maybe a pic of our stockin's after Santa fills 'em up Christmas Eve. I want to add somethin' else to this page too cause it's missin' somethin'
This one will have a pic of someone kissin' ....Probably my oldest son and his fiance ;0) They are officially engaged now ! He proposed 3 weeks ago on her birthday and she accepted. There will be a weddin' in Aug 2010. I'm soooo happy for them !
Ohhhh I also wanna share one of my fav Christmas ornaments. I'm going to try to post a different one everyday up until Christmas...
Here is my 1st one. This was made by my 2nd oldest son when he was in kindergarten. He is 21 now. I love lookin' at all the stuff the kids made when they were young.
Their books were the ABC's of their fav Christmas things. His were the Christmas Tree, Stockings and toys lol
Ohhhh my fav prim store on the way home is havin' a 20% off sale. Ohhhh how I wish I could treat myself to lotsa stuff there lol. I did pick up a few things here is a pic of one of the items I bought.
Cute Lil basket with rusty stars, greenery and pinecones. I changed the ribbon on it but forgot to take a new picture of it. This was only 4.89 Thought it was a pretty good deal. I went to a few thrift stores today and found a few things but forgot to get pics of them too. I will share some pics of them in my next post.
Well I better get goin' and get started on some sewin' so till next time Prim Friends
Prim Huggs n Blessins
