One More Week!

I am very excited about Christmas and the weeks surrounding it. I have two weeks off from school and my kids are all coming home to visit. That's the good news. The bad news is, that it always gets hectic and as hard as I try to make sure it all goes smoothly, somehow, someway, somebody is not going to be happy. That is my love/hate relationship with holidays. (and people in general). I'm good one on one, but crowds and parties are not my strong point. But this year I am trying to be positive and I really am looking foward to the ensuing chaos!
I have been busy shopping and otherwise preparing for the holidays, but I did manage to scrap a few pages this weekend. This one is of my daughter Kerin and her husband during their trip to Disney at Thanksgiving. I used a kit from a new designer at MLAS. BrittBree is her name and the kit is called Breath of Spring.

This LO is from the same kit. It's my sister's grandaughter Ava. I made this one for the speed scrap at MLAS. Speed scrap chats are a lot of fun and there's another one on December 18th at 8:00 pm.

And here's a LO of Julianna and Alexis at their chorus concert. I used Rucola's kit called Miss Metal.

Here's a freebie quickpage from MLAS. You can get it here.


  1. Thank you! Your blog post will be advertised on the DigiFree Digital Scrapbooking Freebie search engine today (look for timestamp: 14 Dec [LA 05:10pm, NY 08:10pm] - 15 Dec [UK 01:10am, OZ 12:10pm] ).

  2. Hi, I'm also excited about coming Christmas :) Lucky you have family there for Christmas. Don't worry, you probably never make everybodyfeel happy for the whole time, take a distance for bad mood of people in your house. I know, it's easy to say, hard to do but I keep my fingers for you soooooo much!!! How about preparation? What are you going to do during coming days? My plans for today are dumplings :) Kids will love making them :)

    Warm regards to you!!! Magda.

  3. Hey Momma, everything will be great. Everyone is responsible for their own happiness. You be happy and let everyone else follow your example. Or they can leave hahaha. The most important thing is that we will all be together. It has been a long time since we were all together. I am just like you. I am trying to keep a positive attitude but also trying to prepare myself for anything. Right now I am obsessing about DVD placements in my car for the ride. hahah. And honestly if that is the worst I have to worry about well then I am so lucky. I love you and can't wait to be there. See you SOON!!!
