Frosty Santa!

Okay, I am absolutely in love with this kit by Julie Marie (you can find her and her designs at Sunshine Studio.) Of course, with a child who almost always wears pink, it is so hard to find a Christmas/Winter kit that has a sufficient amount of pink in it, but this one works perfectly! And look at the strip of jingle bells! I already have an idea for them!!!

Image is linked to the Sunshine Studios store, so you can also pick it up!

I think almost everyone is having to "thin out" something or other these days; times are hard and, on a personal note, just found out something that makes it even worse for us, but that is okay. Maybe we just needed to take some time to thin out -- thin out our belongings, our focuses, our obligations and put them back where they need to be, where they should be.

12 Days of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . .

Depending on if you know the traditional version or the "red-neck" version, your answer would be tremendously different! LOL

But, head over to the Queen Kat Designs blog for all the fabulous projects that Nikki and Vicki have put together for the 12 days of Christmas. They are on day 8 and the projects are rocking!!!

Look at this incredible tag by Nikki (she is definitely channeling Tim Holtz these days!) Not only do you get to drool over the tag, but when you go to the blog, she gives you directions on how to recreate it yourself! How is that for a great Christmas present!!

Digi Obsession!

Yeap, I have been digi obsessed! I have always played around with digital scrapping, but more often than not, I find myself doing more digital pages than paper pages! Gasp, Yikes, Shock!

And part of that comes with some of the great designers that I am getting to work with at Inspiration Lane!
Check out the special at Inspiration Lane

Just think, all you have to do is sign up for their newsletter and get all this fab stuff!! Look at a couple of layouts that I created from elements in the goodies!

Seems like most of my life has been in search of things -- the holidays always seem to be when I am in search of the perfect gift, in search of a great bargain, in search of some answer that I just can figure out.

This year, I am making a conscious effort to search for the right things, in the right places. Maybe you are searching this season also, if so, I hope you find all that you are searching for and in the right places as well.
