Every year I make calenders for my children and I finally finished last night just in time for Christmas. It's lots of work but I do enjoy seeing the family all year long. It's wonderful to see the changes in the grandchildren every year and these pages can be put into a album when the year is over. I use almost all stampin'up products on these...

Christmas Tree is up

I got the tree up today, it looks pretty good. I am cooking Christmas dinner this year hope the weather is good that weekend right now we have very little snow. I do have some baking to do haven't wrapped any gifts yet and do have a parcel to mail to the oldest son and his family. I also do calenders for each of the kids and haven't finished them yet either lots of things to do. Stampin'UP! used to sell the 81/2 by 11 calenders now I have to make my own. The bind it all comes in handy for that. Hope most of you are more organized than me this year. Usually I am on top of things but got behind this year.

Hello well here we are into the countdown for Christmas.. I did finish the stocking I have been working on. With many finger pricks, and straining to to thread the needles its done. Now all the grandchildren have homemade stockings. Hope Alexis enjoys hers as the years go by.
Was in the city shopping a few days ago and I could of bought a stocking for a lot less and saved my fingers. BUT it just wouldn't be the same as one of these with all the sequins...made by grandma
