Merry {late} Christmas!!!

I hope yesterday was everything you imagined and was filled with love and happiness. We had Christmases #4-5 yesterday. As much as I hate the fact the Christmas is over, I'm glad to not be running around so much anymore.

I will have pictures of the calendars I made sometime this weekend. I forgot to take pictures of the pages before I gave them away but I'll see my mom this weekend and will take pictures then.

Here's an ornament I did really quick for Christmas #1 (my mom's family - aka my aunts, uncles, etc). It was super easy and only took a couple minutes. All I did was spray the inside with adhesive, drop some glitter in and shake it around.

The favor bags from Christmas #1

Hi all! Remember me? haha Here's the favors I made for my mom's family Christmas last weekend. I made 30 in all and there was a good handful left over buy my cousin said he'd eat them and whatever was left over he'd take to his roommates when he went back to college. Sounds good to me! :)

I used the Winter Lace cartridge for the snowflake and Pink by Design for the nugget wrappers and "Let it Snow".

Busy Busy Bee

I have been super busy trying to get a bunch of Christmas presents finished/made. I have a bunch of things to post but have to wait until after Christmas for a lot of them, since I have family that looks on here. So, just so you don't think I've left you hanging, you'll be glad you stuck around when I can finally reveal these projects. :)

Have a great weekend!!

A Thank you Card

Wednesday was our last night of Bible Study and we all wanted to thank the wonderful lady that organized and planned. By the end of the study, there were still over 20 women and that says a lot about the study and Erica. We decided to have a card and a collection of $5-10 each for a Nordstrom card to thank Erica for all the work she did. She even came to the study 2 days after giving birth!!!

So glad we're friends

First of all, sorry for the lack of posting. I have been busily working on Christmas cards, making presents and favor bags for a Christmas party. I got a couple projects done yesterday so I feel comfortable being on the computer right now. :)

My mom's fiance wanted 20 cards to send to his mom as a Christmas present. Originally he wanted 5 sets of 4 cards. This was the first set I made for her. I made another set yesterday (I couldn't take a picture because my hubby took my camera to work). And then while my mom was here for the day yesterday, we decided to do 4 sets of 5 cards and I pulled two sets I already had done to finish the 20 cards. Yay for getting it done and saving time in the process!!!

Quick Note

I have a card to post but that's going to have to be posted tomorrow.

If you would like to keep updated on our baby situation, I'm keeping our family blog updated. You're free to follow along at The Garland Fam. That way, the people on here that don't want to read the more personal posts don't have to.

Thank you for all the kind words and prayers. They are definitely felt by us.
