Handmade Christmas Ornaments

These are the prettiest ornaments! We used clear glass ornaments and swirled different acrylic paints to coat the inside. As they dried, the colors swirled together. Perfect presents from my girls!

Twilight Ornament

Just look at what my talented daughter painted! A Twilight ornament for our Christmas tree. When I saw her starting on it, I was amazed at how pretty she paints. She painted each of the Cullen family members and Bella in her own style. Here are some pix of her creation...

An Afternoon of Scrapbooking :)

My mom and sister came out to visit me today - always one of my most favorite things. Even better - WE SCRAPPED ALL AFTERNOON! We finished gifts for all of the kids teachers. We made a little magnetic wooden initial note holder and post-it note holder for each teacher. They really turned out pretty cute! Thank you Lisa for the great ideas! Megan's teacher gift is the little owl set at the bottom of the picture.

OMG It's SNOWING in League City!

I can't believe it, but it is snowing in League City, the second Christmas in 4 years! We couldn't ask for a better Christmas present! I am so sad that Brittany wasn't here for our snowball fight, but maybe we will have another snow next week and can play again :) Here are some fun photos of our wonderful miracle!

November Design Team Challenge

In addition to making beautiful ornaments at the first meeting, we were given our first challenge - and boy, what a challenge it was! Two 1-page scrapbook layouts and a card were to be made and finished in one week! I have never had to create pages from papers and embellishments chosen by someone else. So this in combination with the short time frame made for a very difficult challenge. However, I think the pages turned out pretty cute when they were finished :)

November Design Team Meeting

At our first meeting we were so lucky to be able to make ornaments for the Scrapbook Junkie Christmas Tree! I didn't take a lot of photos, but here is one of the ornaments that I made.

Scrapbook Junkie Design Team Contest

Here is a picture of my submission for the Scrapbook Junkie Design Team. Better late than never, right?
