Okay, so I couldn't wait any longer. I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving, but this year, I just couldn't stand it anymore. I had to DECORATE! Hehe!
Steve had the day off Wednesday, so he got the tree out and we decorated. I always love getting out the box of ornaments each year. It's like finding new treasures each year as I remember where I got a particular ornament. Steve and I have collected a lot of pretty ones over the year. '
I found the cutest pink cashmire mini Christmas tree at Michaels the other day. I am making button ornaments for it and will share some pics of it all decorated. I just had to have Christmas spread into where I work. Plus it matches the button shop perfecty :)
Happy Holidays everyone!

Hey there! I just wanted to share a fun site I came across online! It is chocked full of inspiration with featured artists and my favorite sketches by my dear friend, Pam Callaghan. Last year, Creating Keepsakes Magazine featured many of her amazing page ideas and now she has opened a blog to share them, as well as new ones with us on a weekly basis. I know I'll be heading there when I am stuck or want a direction for my layout.
There is also a great giveaway going on at http://www.ideasforscrapbookers.blogspot.com/ for the chance to win $50 in GCD products. I recently picked up a few sheets of their patterned paper at Michael's and LOVED it. The texture of the paper is so different from what I've ever used before. It's really beautiful.
So head on over there and see what I mean. It's full of ideas and fun inspiration!
