Christmas Decorating Pictures at Last

I so need to find a tutorial on how to work this new blog spot picture thing. It's driving me crazy. I thought I would finally post pictures of the house decorated for Christmas. Once again I only decorated the front room. It took 2 days instead of several and I'm pretty happy about the results. I made a collage using old family photos, some photos found on the internet and scrapbooking stuff. It was a lot of fun. You'll see pictures of the frame before and after.

Also I realized what a procrastinator I am and that there was no way I would post every day. So not me. LOL. So next Tuesday I will post pictures of all twelve give aways for the 12 days of Christmas. Just leave a comment and that will enter you into the drawing. There will be several goodies. If there is a particular goodie you only want then leave a comment for that one. Check back Tuesday. Hope your New Year is great. If you're out having a good time please be careful.

Christmas Aprons

I made Christmas aprons for all my coworkers. I also made their gift bags. It was late at night when I finished their gifts and I didn't have time to run out to get gift bags. So I just used scrapbooking materials and brown paper lunch bags that I had on hand. The gals I work with our very special and I just treasure their friendship. I think their aprons turned out darling.

12 Days of Christmas Give Away

I've been so busy these past 2 months between work, kids, homeschooling, and side jobs. I really wanted to get better at blogging or at least more consistent. I do hope that everyone is having a great holiday season. Our weather here has been unbelievably cold at least very cold for us. We don't usually get frost until later. Usually January/February and occasionally March but that's it but we've had several days here lately. I'm sure the citrus farmers are not happy.
The gang and I have decided since we blew right past our 100th post that we would do something really special for 12 days of Christmas. We'll begin on the 25th of December, Christmas Day and go through the 12 days. Every day there will be a prize and all you will have to do is leave a comment. I'll post a picture of that day's prize  and draw out the next day. I'll have Christmas Day's prize posted on Christmas Eve. Oh this is going to be so much fun. I've been planning all kinds of goodies to give away. I'll be rather busy making those goodies over the next several days along with other gifts for friends and family but be sure to peek back Christmas Eve. I'm off to be a busy little elf sewing and baking. Bye for now.
