Day 25: Christmas Day has arrived!! Our family was due to our house at noon and what a crazy morning, life is never dull with my family. lol I had lots to do yet; get the food started, finish setting up the tables and then the phone calls started....What a WILD morning and little did I know what would happen. One of the kids woke up sick and because of me and my dad's health that's really not good for us to be around. After many phone calls and texts back and forth I decided lets do it because of everything dh and I went through getting ready for Christmas it was happening no matter what! haha. So Christmas was back on. My parent's T.V. died so as a family we decided to get my dad a new T.V. To get dad out of the house we told him he need to come help me set up and help with the food so while he was here my brother and hubby could install the new T.V. and surprise my dad.....that was the plan. Of course of all the days of the year one of the cows decided to get it's head stuck in the bale feeder. UNREAL my mom told my dad he HAD to go because I needed help. Dad calls and wants me to come help of course I can't leave because I am in the middle of making dinner, hubby wasn't home and my brother is still an hour out from my place. Dad runs to the neighbor to get a tool and he tells mom she has to go without me. Mom is like now what? Lots of phone calls back and forth between my mom, brother and I trying to hatch a plan. BOY nothing goes as planned EVER. The family has started to arrive and we are trying to figure out how to sneak the T.V. into my house without the kids seeing it and spilling the beans because of course it was not wrapped. ROFL By now my brother are really cracking up over it cause really this is the norm for our family... Dad in the mean time went back out and the cow got out on it's own....UNBELIEVABLE. Dad arrived with just enough time for my brother and hubby to set up the T.V. before our meal. Another story for the book that I will write some day about life with the farmer :) After our meal it was time to open gifts!

The boys were excited about there Christmas gifts and were happy it was our little guy's first Christmas. I wrote on the card and decorated with the washi tape and sequins that came in last years kit.

Day 24: This was do or die day :) At this point we both are ready for a vacation BAD and both saying to each other NEVER EVER AGAIN!!! lol We where up before the rooster was. We finished wrapping gifts. Hooray they are done!! Dh ran to town to mail out the last batch of stuff including the Christmas Cards (now I didn't need to worry about them no more lol) and pick up a few groceries we forgot for the big day. Decorating was finished and now time to clean up the bomb that went off in the house. By midnight it was done and there was no site of the chaos from the last weeks. We did it!!!!

IMG_6353

I only did one layout for this day. I used all the items from Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle. I loved the reindeer die cut and thought it was fitting to go with my reindeer display. Long time ago I found some gorgeous items at Michaels in the colors I love copper, taupe, and vanilla color and came up with this display I create every year. I stamped the image from Project Life Hello December Stamp Set across the top in Basic Gray. To tie in the gold glimmer I added a little strip of Gold Glimmer Paper across the top of the card. I added all the little embellishments that came in the Project Life Hello December Bundle. I stamped Joy from Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set in Basic Gray across the tag. Mostly to document our joy of being ready. lol I also added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel. Then added my journaling.

I will be sharing Day 23 and this day was pretty INSANE for us!!! lol So much left to do. Wrap more gifts, make something for the kids, create the gag gift and little did I know the christmas card photo would be arriving that day and be a MAJOR problem. lol Are we gonna be ready in time????

Day 23:Since the stalkings were a bust I needed to figure out something different to make for the kids to hold there stocking suffers and the time limit was a huge factor. lol So I decided to create bags out of the paper wrap I had from Stampin' Up! long time ago. Not as cool as the stocking idea but better than nothing. lol I used up some of my non SU Christmas Scrapbook paper to make tags and decorate the top of the bags. I punched out the paper using the tree punch and made a little special not to each kid on the tag. Then wrapped ribbon around the top and tied some starfuit candy canes to the bags. One of the kids favorites. I got one batch done that need to be mailed out.

IMG_6332

I used all the items from Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle and Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit. I also add one of the Snowflake Elements to it too. The kids loved the bags they thought it was pretty cool I took the time to make them paper bags. Who would have know they would be a hit. lol Plus they were quite happy to get there favorite candy canes. lol

Next up another Family tradition. Every year someone gets a gag gift. My grandmother actually started this. When my grandma asked what I wanted one time when I was a kid I of course replied a red truck like grandpa's (what all young kids want). lol So my grandma of course did get me a red truck.....well a little red toy truck. Only she put it in inside of a box, inside of a box and so on.  Of course my family thought this was quite funny. So this started the tradition. With my family there is always something bound to happen through the year to be an extremely funny moment that someone would like that moment to be forgotten. Of course since they all laughed that day a long time ago I won't let those moments be forgotten or slide by. hehehe Over the years there have been some pretty awesome gag gifts that I am quite proud of. :) So I felt it was important to document this years gag gift :) Only problem now is the bar is getting kinda high. So now a LOT of thought goes into this. The entire family worries about it all year what I am gonna do. hehehe

This years prank: My aunt had thanksgiving dinner the year before and while putting the turkey on the platter it slid off into the sink which wouldn't have been no big deal.......except it was full of dish water. My cousin and her where trying to rinse it off when I happen to come walking around the corner into the kitchen. I heard them at first whispering to hurry up before someone walked in and I heard my aunt say to my cousin don't say anything to anyone and nobody will ever know. Of course they didn't know I was standing right behind them at the time :) Just as I was about to announce my presence they almost dropped it onto the floor because it was covered in dish soap. I busted out laughing and of course made them jump and they almost dropped it again. Right away my aunt was oh great now your gonna prank me....so I had to let that sit for a year before doing anything. Hahaha So this year we made up a special recipe for a nice and juicy turkey, created a slip and slide, added a bottle of dish soap, and found a rubber chicken on-line to include in the kit along with a letter we created for her too. :) So documenting that!! We elves had a lot of fun and yes the elves are brats! :)

IMG_6336

This got a hole page in the album too! I took the stamp from Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle in Lost Lagoon and stamped it onto some Very Vanilla card stock. I also added some of the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper. I used Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit and added a Snowflake Element onto the page too.

Later in the day our missing Christmas photo card finally showed up. I figured they were lost for good and we were gonna be sending out new year cards instead. lol However when they arrived hubby had made a mistake when sizing them instead of getting a 4" x 5 1/4" photo we got  something a hole lot smaller. lol Why not?? Not like anything was going as planned leading up to Christmas. So that night what where hubby and I doing till midnight?? Fixing the problem of course (roll my eyes). ROFL I had a lot of card stock to use up from other various company's which was my goal last year to use stuff up.The card stock happen to be the perfect color too. So we cut the card stock down to 4" x 5 1/4" and taped the picture to it. I thought they looked plain so we added washi tape  across the bottom; (which looked like a wood grain) I had in my stash of stuff to use. This is what we got.

IMG_6088

Not to bad for flying by the seat of our pants. I think it's the best screw up in history! lol We got them all done that night and ready to be mailed out the next day. lol The elves had it in for us this year but we beat them at there game :)

IMG_6341

Of course really the humor of this situation needed to be documented we thought. My husband said in the end they were pretty cool but I've been banned from doing this ever again. ROFL I thought it deserved a hole page in the book too. I stamped the snowflakes from  Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle in Lost Lagoon. I glued a christmas card to the Very Vanilla card stock and stamped the image from Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle in Mint Macaron. I stamped the Love from Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set in Basic Gray. Then added embellishments from the Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle and added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

December so far has been quite the month to not to forget! Will we be ready for Christmas day???? Stay tuned :)

I will be sharing Day 21-22 this was REALLY crunch days for us if I was going to get all gifts done to mail in time. lol Lots of gifts left to be made and wrapping. Oh my the wrapping!

Day 21:Spent the morning going over my check list for what gifts were left to do. Then worked all morning finishing up those gifts. We hauled everything out of the craft room out to the dinning room to layout and start wrapping and packaging. The funny part I just got the club hostess gifts all wrapped and my mother showed up. We didn't know she was coming over and she is in one of my hostess clubs. So mom you almost blew the surprise. (There were many close calls this year for people seeing gifts.) Haha Dh and I got a pretty good laugh out of it.

IMG_6150

As we got things done they got checked off so I included that in my layout on this page. I used all the items from Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle. Our family tradition is to create some of our gifts since I love to create and handmade gifts to me mean a lot more. (Some times this stress dh out and he thinks I am CRAZY).

IMG_6152

Every year our tradition is to make something special for our nieces, nephews and cousin's kids. I had a great Aunt who always did special things for us kids and it is one of my fondest memories of what cool thing did she make up. I want to pass that on to our peeps. We are the favorite ;) This year I wanted to make stockings; so on Dec. 21 at 4pm at night what are we doing cutting stockings out for the kids. We had about 30 to make too. ROFL

This layout I just added pictures then decorated one picture with the Project Life Hello December 2015 Accessories Pack. Pretty simple. My husband dose think I am crazy but he always helps. lol So he got the best husband award this year.

IMG_6157

Here is one batch of stockings cut out waiting to be pinned and sewed together. Gonna be so cute right? Another VERY late night. My top card I decorated using the accessories from Project Life Hello December 2015. I used the stamp from Project Life Hello December 2015 Stamp Set; inked it in Lost Lagoon and stamped on the bottom right corner. I took the stamps from Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set; inked them in Real Red, and Basic Gray and stamped randomly onto the card.

Day 22: (BAD DAY HERE.) Up at 5am; only time for a little coffee. Oh elves where are my Christmas Photo Cards??? Lost somewhere over Michigan. EEKKKKK We spent a good part of the day trying to sew the stockings. One after another major mistakes were made; from sewing them wrong side out, to missing the edges and etc.  Only 1 turned out; seriously not kidding. So they were a huge BUST but boy was that interesting lol (note to self: when doing this large of project make sure you have plenty of sleep the night before and drink LOTS of coffee). Dh got the tree up finally!! Never been so late in my life with anything. lol I'll be honest at this point we ready to say to heck with no tree or decorations; but we were hosting Christmas this year and we didn't want to disappoint the kids. The things you do for the kids to make the day special!!!

IMG_6164

I thought it was important to document the one stocking and getting the tree up finally just because of the humor of the situation. I kept this simple too. I just used the Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle.

Tick Tock Tick Tock now what do we do for the kids??? 2 Days before Christmas. EEKK Gonna have to sleep on it.

I will be sharing Day 19-20. LOT going on leading up to Christmas for us! Lots of gifts left to be made and wrapping. Oh my the wrapping!

Day 19: Like everyone else at that time of the year it's crunch time! lol I got to unpack my pre-order that showed up the day before!! Had to take a picture of my new goodies!

IMG_6132

For the Day 19 filler card on the left I also used the Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit and Snowflake Elements from the (Holiday Catalog) to decorate it. On the Day 19 card I took the stamp from Project Life Hello December 2015; inked in Lost Lagoon and stamped the snowflakes randomly. I added my journaling using the Project Life Journal Pens. We got a few Christmas cards that day too! I did something fun for the Brothers and Sister in-laws this year. I created a Date Night Box for each of them. With the daily grind, kids and etc. it's important to take time for you and your spouse.

IMG_6138

To decorate this layout I kept it simple; I used the Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle. I cut one of the tags in half and added it to the picture to capture the fun of creating this gift. I normally would have had my entire idea thought out and organized at least 6 months before. But at last 2015 was not a normal year for us. :) I had a blast creating this but when I started I realized we need some more items to fill in. lol Oh boy what do you do when you live in a small town and it's 6 Days before Christmas? Check out Pinterest of course. lol Which was a AWESOME idea!! I found a quiz for you and your spouse. It also sparked some ideas so off to town we went.

Photo1

Here is a close up of the box! Sorry not a great picture I snapped it with the phone. lol

Date Night Box Included: ( I wanted it to be more an all day thing instead)
* Adult Beverages
* Popcorn
*Games
*I tune Gift Cards for Music and Movies
* Hot Chocolate and some Treats
*Spouse Quizzes

My goal for 2015 was to use things up in my craft room and boy this girl has a LOT of Christmas Stuff! lol While at Walmart though I found these cool metallic stars to add to your packaging and they were only a $1!! The Quiz was printed out onto card stock then I created an envelope from scrapbook paper. (This works slick). Raffia and Candy Canes were my best friend this Christmas :) They also are very inexpensive and add so much to your gift wrapping! I have a TON of raffia left from when we had our wedding almost 10 years ago. Word to the wise it goes very far only buy a little. :) I made Gift Card Holders out of designer paper. The Hot Chocolate and Peppermints went into a kraft bags I had and I decorated with designer paper, candy canes and etc. I had an old Christmas kit that had stickers and tags in it and those worked slick along with my stamps!

IMG_6142

Another batch of Date Night Gifts and Gifts! This layout kept very simple I just used a card from the Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle. I added my thoughts to the card using the Project Life Journal Pen. We had so much fun creating these and they were a huge hit! I also used up an entire stack of stuff too! Woo Hoo!!

On Day 20: Lots, Lots, and Lots of Gifts left to make yet. YIKES My one BIL gave me an awesome idea for Christmas. We were talking one day in August how we are all terrible about remembering the big days; Birthday to Anniversary's  he joked that for Christmas we should give everyone cards for the year to open. LIGHT BULB...what do I do peeps for a living; create cards GENIUS IDEA! Thank you little brother! lol So we made cards for the entire year for all of our siblings :) They were a hit too and got a great laugh! I also spent the day making all my down-line gifts, club members gifts, customer gifts, friends and etc. gifts!

IMG_6145

I kept this layout pretty simple too. Just decorated 1 card from the Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle. I also used some pieces from Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit. I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel, some lines across the card using the Project Life Journal Pen.

Pretty busy few days!!

I am only showing Day 18 since it was the day we got the recipe books done for my brother, cousins, my mom and I finally!!!

Day 18: We spent the entire day working on the Recipe Albums for the family.

IMG_5562

I decided to switch up the number's for the day a little bit. I just cut one of the banners in half that came in the Hello December 2015 Accessory Pack and wrote 18 on it. I added some stamping across the top and accessories from the kit. I took the stamp from Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set and inked it in Lost Lagoon and stamped in the bottom right corner. Then added my journaling to the card.  So easy to do!!! Here my mom and I are working away.

In the one picture you'll see my dog Gizmo and my kitty Kyro sleeping. They both have to be right by me no matter what I am doing. lol The picture was an odd size so I made it to fit and left part of the photo paper white. To fill in the white space I used the stickers from the Hello December Accessory Kit to spell out nap. The bottom picture is of my mom with her completed recipe album.

IMG_5568

Since the page continued on I decided to add the Day 18 card again. I wanted to show the recipe album by itself too. I add in my grandma's recipe for No Bake cookies. These are my favorite cookies on the planet. She use to make them for me all the time :) Then that day we also got a Christmas card from my Aunt and Uncle from Michigan and my aunt wrote some messages on the outside of the envelope to us!! Made us smile and laugh so I wanted to include that in the our album.

I will be sharing the Recipe Album in second blog post HERE.

I am only covering a couple days; I wanted to really show off what I did for one of the days so there our several pictures for it.

Day 15: I spent the day working on the Christmas Gifts that I was making along with December Hostess Club Project.

IMG_5542

I also discovered these cookies from Pepridge Farms and oh my peeps they are AWESOME cookies. They were gingerbread cookies that I got from Target.....yes we did pick up more :) So much for cutting the sugar out! lol The Christmas Ornaments were my 6/$25 Hostess Club Project for December. I made over 30 of these babies. So there was roughly 60 Gold Glimmer ornaments to poke the holes out of......I didn't quite think that one out. lol I used the different buttons from Home for Christmas Designer Buttons. They were cool and everyone loved them! Tomorrow I will be sharing the video and pictures.

Dec. 16: I got to open my Christmas Gift from Hubby!!! But wait it's not Christmas yet............

IMG_5544

For the day 16 page I added a Tag from the Oh What Fun Project Kit. I used the Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set. You can still order this set it carried over to the Occasions Catalog!! I stamped the image onto the tag and added it into the album.

IMG_5547

I used the back of the tag to add my story details. I got a Laser Printer!!! Whoop Whoop. I print a LOT of stuff for our businesses so I go through a ton of ink and I also picked up a Heidi Swap 6" minic in November for 1/2 off!! (With her machine if you print images out with a Laser Printer then you can add the foil to it but you need a Laser Printer.) So it's been on my wish list for awhile. For my birthday my family got me a Canon Selphy so dh was going to get me paper and ink for it. When his brother and him went to Best Buy on the end cap was this printer half off. WOW these things are spendy so that couldn't be passed up. lol

IMG_5550

There is a pretty funny story about this hole early gift opening. So I cut a Project Life card in half to create a pull out for behind the picture. That coming weekend we were going to work on those dread cookbooks for my brother and cousin's again and was talking about it with Dh. All the sudden he wanted me to open my gift. I of course didn't want to since it wasn't Christmas yet. lol Finally he talked me into it.....um yeah I was glad he did. lol It was used a LOT. The funny part later that day I was talking to my brother telling him about getting the printer. My brother thought it was odd I got two printers and I almost told him why dh wanted me to open my gift so I could use it on the cookbooks that coming weekend. I almost spilled the beans without thinking about it!!! ROFL Phew close call. Mom and I had a pretty good giggle over that one.

Dec. 17:  Another busy day for us we got Snow!!!!!

IMG_5555

More Christmas cards arrived!! Love getting photo cards especially if I haven't seen kids in awhile. We plowed and shoveled. Later dh had a meeting with a client about there new website. I worked on trying to figure out what to have for Christmas Lunch so tired of Ham and Turkey at this point. lol What do you make for a big group of people????

IMG_5558

Another SU customer order arrived; some heavy petting involved :) Gizmo wanted to go outside and play in the fresh snow. When he came back in he had snow on his nose. He likes to bury his head into the snow. Then he just sat like he was posing for a picture and didn't move; so we took a picture. lol Never seen a dog that poses for pictures like he does. Goofy Dog!!!

I am only covering a couple days since they were pretty big days for us.

Day 12: My husband and mom through me a surprise birthday party this year. It was awesome!!

IMG_5496

I created a cover page to start the 12th off. I used the Oh What Fun Tag Kit; there where gold glittered snowflakes in the kit. I just attached to the card with a Glue Dot. Very cool they are!!

IMG_5513

I had trouble getting good pictures of this layout, I am sorry they are not great pictures. I decided to decorate the outside of the page protectors. The best part about my party was my cousin came with her boys. I love these boys so much and it made my day to be able to spend it with them! We got a great picture of me with Hayden, Hunter and Harmon too!! I don't get to seem them too much since they live 3 hours away. I was pretty sick the week before with my stuff so I was very glad I felt good that day or I would have been very bummed out to miss the kids.

IMG_5519

The top picture was pretty funny. Hayden the oldest, when he was the same age as his little brother Harmon would always talk at me and it was always so funny. What was so funny about it was he only did that with me where he would just go on and on. We got a lot of pictures of us talking. lol Harmon did the same thing that day and hubby got a picture of it. Way cool 9 years later same thing is happening with the 3rd child. lol

IMG_5527

Opened presents and Harmon wanted to be in the picture he rolled right over next to me :) lol I got a adult coloring book. Those things are cool! The kids LOVED it they colored me a picture in the book too!!

IMG_5528

A family gathering wouldn't be the same with out having a game to play! We love to play games and my cousin got me a really fun new game called Loaded Questions. This was the big moment where my cousin thought she was going to win. We are all very competitive!! It was a great day and a lot of fun!

Dec. 13 Happy Birthday to me! The 13th is my birthday. It was pretty fun day. Spent part of the day crafting. We got Rocky's Pizza local pizza place here that is the BEST pizza ever!

IMG_5531

Dh picked me up the Ducktales game for the Xbox. My brother and I use to play this game all the time when we were kids. It was a great trip down memory lane and I still can't beat the villain. lol My brother always did the hard parts for me. Haha Dh was taking pictures and Gizmo kept standing there looking at him so dh took his picture too and then he went and laid down. Too funny!!! I decorated the card at the top with the Home for Christmas Enamel Dots and Snowflake Elements.

IMG_5536

We also tried making crab legs!! I love crab legs and they were on sale. SCORE This is the second time making them and we tried something different. They turned out way better!! Dh even gave me candlelight dinner too. It was a great birthday weekend!

Dec. 14: I didn't feel great again; I over did it eating and just doing too much since the week before I had a bad flare up. Usually when the bad flare ups happen I can't eat much or really move around without help. So I didn't do too much that day.

IMG_5537

We sorted through all the gifts, checked people off and figured out who was left to get gifts for. Still not done ughh!!! So I kept the layout really simple. It was a Monday so dh was back to his working hours.

December Daily 2015 Part 3: Days 6-11

Welcome 2016!!

Updates:
Thank you all for your emails, texts and leaving comments here. We really appreciate the good thoughts and prayers!! For us it was pretty scary to get the news. My grandma had a very bad stroke many years ago that did cripple her; so we know first hand how bad that can really be. My FIL is about the same right now he's in a lot of pain and still doing tests.


I am feeling better this am; looks like I am on the upswing of this crud. Probably be a few days yet before I am back up to full speed.

Later today I will be back with another blog post for the new year. Club members I will be sending out emails later today to you all with the info and updates.

Are you like me and wondering Wow where did 2015 go? I am sharing another part of my December Daily! If you would like to see more of the album just click on the Daily December 2015.

First Up Day 6:This year at last minute I decided to do a photo card (roll my eyes). I got the bright idea from pinterest the day before. When I told my husband what I wanted to do and showed him he pretty much thought once again I was off my rocker. lol You see last year we made all the family and customer Christmas cards. We thought we would be in are new house; and figured it would only be half finished, wouldn't have the time or the area to create cards. So we thought we were being very smart :) So when plans didn't go as planned he was quite relieved we didn't have to do 250 Christmas cards last min. this year! hehehe In the end he decided it would be fun and we compromised on the photo card idea....more later on that. Hehehe

IMG_5367
So what does one do when nobody is around to take the picture? We decided to try ourselves and use the trimmer on the camera. WOW peeps that works pretty good! lol Had the camera 3 years and finally tried that out. lol Finding cloths to kinda match was a hole other story. How is it possible to own so many cloths and nothing really goes with his????

IMG_5000

Getting him to take serious picture is like pulling teeth with this boy. He likes to goof around and over the years we've gotten quite the pictures. lol I love that about him even though at times I get annoyed at him when were trying to get a good picture. lol

IMG_5009

The picture above turned out way better than we expected and was the one we used this year on our card. We have a set of trees in our front yard. They are our favorite tress and we will be sad when we move away to loose them. They work great for family pictures. The best memory is the laughter from trying to take our family picture. We had so much fun and made some awesome memories.

On Day 7: My mom and I where off to do Christmas shopping!!! We had a fun day and discovered Monday's are the day to go shopping; hardly any people around! lol Normal I am pretty much close to being done but this year was not the case. I don't recommend waiting this late either!! lol

IMG_5375

I just jotted down a few details and kept it simple :) since I didn't want anyone to see what they were getting I left everything in the bags and took a picture.

December 8: was the Big Day for us!!! Dh's game that he worked hard on for 2 years went live for people to purchase!!! It was very exciting and stressful. The company that was hired for marketing dropped the ball big time. So the team that worked on the game had to do all the promoting by word. Pretty stressful and of course it's Christmas time which is already crazy busy.  If you would like to see the game visit The Mean Greens Site. I am really proud of my hubby for such a big accomplishment. We noticed our pump was running constantly too.

IMG_5386

I kept this one simple too. I added the stickers that come in the Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle to the cards. Then added a Rhinestone to it. Picture is a shot from the game.

December 9: Was the start of bad luck! lol I woke up with a bad flare up from my Rheumatoid Arthritis. It started to attack my intestine bad. It was also the day the well pump started really acting weird. We spent the day trying to figure out what was wrong. Finally at the end of the day had to call a well company because nothing we did seemed to solve it.

IMG_5394

Dh found a cute picture image on-line for being sick. Since I forgot to take pictures that day. lol Worked out great. I used the Oh What Fun Tag Kit and Season of Cheer Designer Series Washi Tape to decorate the cards.

Here is a look at December 10: The well people came and we had to replace our deep well pump. It rained all day. Not fun to put a pump in that but at least it wasn't -20 below!!! Later that day the aqua stat went on our wood stove.I CRUMBA! Merry Christmas to us! lol

IMG_5411

December 11: It was depressing the money this little incident cost us; especially because we weren't done Christmas Shopping and December we have several birthdays too; off all the months! So because we always find the humor in everything we wrote a letter to Santa. lol

IMG_5414

Kept it simple again. There is a card in the Project Life Hello December 2015 that say's Dear Santa on it. Perfect for us! lol When we saw this card; the light bulb went on at the same time and we started laughing. Laughter makes everything better!

Xmas-2015 - Copy

My compromise with dh was to just create a photo card instead of putting it all on paper and etc. So this is what he created!! Pretty cool right? Because of everything that happened that week; we didn't get our photo designed until the 11th. We thought no big deal they'll come sometime the following week. Yeah RIGHT!! We also discovered how expensive these things are so dh's bright idea was to create it in Photoshop to fit a 4 x 6 Print but smaller to fit into a A2 Envelope. Genius!! We only had to pay for a 4 x 6 print which is like .10 cents verses $2.50 per card. BRILLIANT!! I honestly would have not thought of that; it was all him. lol Little did we know.......the elves lost our pictures in Michigan somewhere and dh made a small mistake. lol So can you guess what happened? More about that later in the December Daily :)

This is Day 4 foundation page. I went through and placed my cards and dates into the pockets before starting this project. Certain dates I knew already that I would have more to share but otherwise I limited each day to one pocket page. Then at the end of each day I would pull out the journal card and document what happened and my thoughts.

Tip~ journal at the end of each day on one of the cards you've already put into the pocket.

IMG_4980

Day 4 was a big day for us!! My husband's job is designing video games, animations and etc. He is very talented and literally blows my mind how this stuff works and the crazy part he never went to collage for it. He has taught himself how to do this all on his own. He's worked on several games and had games released but they have all been for clients. On this day the game him and some friends have been working on for almost two years on the side was announced!!!!!!!!! It's called The Mean Greens and the concept green army men. lol It's really cute and perfect for kids!!  If you would like to see the game visit The Mean Greens Site. Then we had to wait till Dec. 8 for the game to go live. It was a LONG few days. lol

IMG_4987

This is Day 5 foundation page. I used the Hello December 2015 Bundle for this layout and I also used Oh, What Fun Tag Project Kit to decorate as well. This little kit is AWESOME and it's on the Year End Sale too!!
