Frosty Morning

I think that we might be done with those 90-degree days!!! It is 29 this morning and there is a frosty chill in the air. . .I LOVE it!!! I am in full holiday prep mode. . .this week is planning and cleaning, next week continues the cleaning part and then we are in food prep mode!!! I have to say I love Thanksgiving. . .I love getting together with people without the stress of gift giving. But, having said that, today I'm going Christmas shopping and getting a start on this. Once the gifts are procured then I feel like I can sit back and enjoy the holidays. I have ideas for everyone at this point. . .well, except for my girls.

I have also been working on the Christmas scrapbooks and 2018 calendars. For the calendars I take templates for calendar toppers and create 4x6 templates. I fill those in and then use Shutterfly to create desk calendars for people. . .they tend to like those over the wall calendars. For the photo, I plop in the fill template. I have to say they look incredible and I think they are the most anticipated gift along with the scrapbooks.

With all that work going on, I have STILL managed to do a little bit of scrapping that I can share. . .so here goes Created using Created using Created using Created using Created using Created using And, with that I am outta here to go get a start on my day!!! Until next time. . .

November Starts

Well, the busiest time of the year has started!!! The question at the moment is will I get the 2018 calendars done??? Will I get scrapbooks pulled together for the girls??? Will I get Thanksgiving Dinner done and not make anyone sick??? Will I get through Thanksgiving at the in-laws with grace and dignity??? While it is busy, I do enjoy it too. . .there will be a pancake and sausage breakfast, a couple of Christmas programs, a performance of The Nutcracker with a super sweet little soldier and bon-bon, giggles at the "butt-cheek" rolls and family times.

But before we get to all of that I have layouts to share with you. . . Created using Created using Created using Created using Created using Created using Created using Created using Created using And, with that I am outta here. Today is a busy day and I need to get a jump on things!!! Until next time. . .

The trees have started to turn and I am hoping for a sunny day next week that my camera and I can have a day trip to the country!!! But, in the meantime, I have a few layouts to share. . .
