12 Days of Christmas | Day 10 | Dashing Through The Snow

I want to be dashing through the snow. I don't need a one-horse open sleigh…just gimme some snow to dash in, alright? This 50 degree stuff in December is 'nice', but I need some snow. I guess until I get some, I can gaze upon the beauty of this little number by Layle. Our story begins with narration from Layle herself: Last December, I told my husband and our boys that all I wanted for Christmas from them was an afternoon of snow shoeing together, and that's what I got (albeit an early Christmas presents)! Kerri's Hello December kit of 3x4 cards [...]

12 Days of Christmas | Day 9 | It’s A Very Merry Hipmas Giveaway!

I feel like Santa came early. Today we have another great giveaway from the ever-so talented and incredibly hip herself, Miss Cathy Zielske! Apparently Santa's got a brand new bag…and I think we should check out what's in it! So cool and awesome…and dare I use the word…hip. Leave it to Cathy to make such awesomeness. This hip little gem can be yours by leaving a comment in this post saying what your coolest or best out-of-the-box gift was for Christmas. I know this is going to sound strange, but when I was nine years old I got a rectangular-shaped flashlight and thought that was [...]

12 Days of Christmas | Day 8 | The Weather Outside Ain’t So Frightful

It's been hard getting into the Christmas groove, in large part due to the fact that it's been in the 50s here in Utah. As in, I even open my window from time to time. That's just plain crazy. I was looking at photos from this time last year. Hello snow and cold. It definitely felt like Christmas with the proper weather. And I always find it fascinating for those that have sunny weather at this time of year or all my friends 'down under' where Santa can be found in bermuda shorts. At this rate, our Santa will be [...]

12 Days of Christmas | Day 7 |Another Guest Has Arrived

I just love the holiday season and having friends over. They always have such fun 'decorating' ideas. And our friend, Marcy Penner, always has some of the best ideas! [ Designs | Seven Days A Week ] Oooh la la! Love the stack of the days of the week…with white-on-white  words (which I'm a sucker for) and one 'highlighted' word. That's just awesome. And while this isn't 'Christmas' per se, it could easily be adapted for that! Include the days and 'highlight' the day of Christmas. Way too much fun! Thanks for stopping by the House of KBS, Miss Marcy! [...]

12 Days of Christmas | Day 5 | Tallulah Boutique Giveaway!

Once upon a time three little girls set out over hill and dale to a quaint little town called Midway. In this town they celebrated the days of Swiss with food and goods a-plenty. In one such place, under the shade of the trees, the three little friends found a beautiful place of silver and gold. Not only was the silver and gold sparkly and dreamy, but it had special meaning. Many of the round discs of metal had fingerprints embedded into the shiny metal. "Oh what a glorious idea!", said the three little girls. Three months later, the one little girl needed such [...]

12 Days of Christmas | Day 4 | My Early Christmas Present

  Our 12 Days of Christmas event continues with a little unconventional Christmas present. It's a little present to myself. The gift of recording…just for me. I honestly can't remember when the last time was that I scrapped something because I wanted to. While I've done many pages and it's great, there's always been some kind of reason that it needed to be done. This is something I need to change. I need to record just because I want to. For a long time I've been longing to just get things printed and recorded. I've had the hugest hankering to use the Project [...]
