December Revisited

Happy weekend!! I finally got around to taking some pictures of my December album. I purchased the album from the very sweet and talented Debee Campos. I think I've mentioned her work before on my blog. If you've never visited her blog called Art as Life, you must stop by. She just opened a new etsy shop, Inspire Lovely, which is stocked with all sorts of sunshiny (probably not a word) goodness!!
So here is my little guy with his Christmas outfit on, all ready to deck the halls...

The cover of the album, inspired by Debee. The "flowers" are actually red sequins which I french knotted onto the cardstock.
The toy soldier on the left is a fun pull toy that was my husband's when he was a boy. I thought the handprint was a great idea to look back on and remember how small Liam was!
Liam's Christmas ornament for 2010...picked out by mommy at mommy's favorite store, Anthropologie!! Can't go wrong with anything from there!!

Daddy and Liam playing the African drums during a "music lesson" over the holiday break. The style of this page was inspired by a new blog I've been reading by Vee Jennings.
That's just a sampling of some of the pages. I was happy with myself that I am finally using the sewing machine that I got for Christmas last year!! I haven't sewed one piece of fabric with it, but sure have stitched a lot of paper using it!! Lots of fun!!!!

Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone out there has had a positive productive start to the new year!! It seems like just yesterday we were putting up the Christmas tree and now it's Martin Luther King Day weekend! I've been busy with lots of creative projects even though it doesn't look like it on my blog. I had some computer problems over the holidays so I didn't want to load pictures onto it if I was going to have to buy a new one. The glitches seem to be worked out so I'm going to try to play catch up and post some things I've been up to later this weekend. Here is one of the very best things I've been up to...watching this little guy grow!! He's almost 9 months! Not crawling yet but everyone tells me not to rush it and enjoy having my house in one piece.

A few other things that kept me busy in the last month were the December Daily album, although it turned out to be just a December daily! I also signed up for the One Little Word year long class at Big Picture Scrapbooking. That really has helped to get me excited about 2011! My word for the year is NURTURE...I think you can guess why! Lots to nurture in the year ahead...for myself and others. See you back here later this weekend...enjoy the warmth and sunshine if you are in southern CA!
