Twilight Movie Mistakes........................

Apparently Twilight was listed as the number 2 movie of 2008 with the most mistakes. If you go here you will see them listed out. Now I really need to go see the movie AGAIN so I can obsess about all the mistakes!

Don't You Just Love Bowling Ball Gifts?

We got the Wii fit for the boys to sled downhill on their butts.
I am thinking that it might help my butt too!
I finished this cute little calendar that I told you about here. Lucky Rob gets to have it for his desk at work!

I made these little goodies for my neighbors with some cookies to go along with it.

I used one scoop of this in each bag. This is super yummy BTW!

Friday Favorite Five..............

1. Filling up the truck for less than $90.00.
2. Martha Stewart ultra fine glitter. {Walmart} The colors are so original and pretty.
3. My NEW toy. I got this at the Black Friday Sale at Green Tangerines. I have been having fun with this pink machine! I have been binding like a FOOL! I have plans for even more binding......and if you come to my house in the next few weeks- I just may bind you. Consider yourself warned........
4. I had been wanting a larger cutter. Michael's had this one on sale Black Friday for 29.99. Then another 20% off. Yeah you do the math- it retails at $80.00 - so GOOD deal! So far I like it. It cuts through super thick chipboard. I guess I can even get some fancy blades for it.....will have to look into that! I like the handle for transporting it. And it is easy to see the lines and measurements on it as well.
5. I have been sitting on this one for awhile. My friend Lisa had a "Sale" fundraiser for her school. A gal she knows was selling these Sizzix sets for $15.00! Lisa thought of me- cause she knows how I feel about Sizzix! What a steal these some have been discontinued and are very expensive or hard to get a hold of. Thanks Lis- for thinking of me!

This is how I label my fonts........
And these are what the above fonts look like once I put them in my book. If you missed that post- check it out here.

Everything Christmas..................

Our completed Christmas card. I made 80 of these bad boys. Next year I may do things a little differently....... These were a little more work than I thought. {Isn't that always the case?} However 80 of ANYTHING is overwhelming huh?
The 3 cards below are from a stamp class I took last year with my friend Denise. I found these when I was doing some organizing. I also found some Christmas cards from last year! I have BIG plans for the cards from last year- and the cards from this year also. (All the cards we got...)

The last one is another refreshed that I made for Green Tangerines. It is a countdown Christmas Calendar.

Well- there you go. That is ALL my Christmas related pictures I had in my "to blog" folder! After the new year no one is going to want to see any of this right? We shall move onto snowflakes and coffee right? Well if you are my friend Lisa - that is what it is for her right now in Seattle. Snowflakes and coffee. She has 19" of snow. I told her I would come dig her out!

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
