A LIttle Bit of Scrappy Time

I'm here! I'm guessing no one sent out the National Guard to search for me, although I very easily could have been buried under a ton of snow! We've had blizzards and other snow-filled craziness around these parts, and it's only the beginning of December- WOW! Apparently, we had the "snowiest" November on record here. I can't remember November anytime recently where we even had any snow, so it's been a bit of getting used to, to say the least. At least I've got some new pics to scrap and share with the kids enjoying the snow :)

It's also time for another Sketchabilities sketch. I have to admit that I was a bit intimidated by this one. I'm not quite sure if it was all the white space or what, but I love what I ended up with. I know I say I love a lot of different companies, but October Afternoon is truly and completely right at the top. I tend to have a hard time getting my hands on it, so maybe that's what draws me to it even more...

Here's Karan's sketch
And here's my take


My little sweetie girl just before her first day of school. I had the chance to take Miss A and her bff to the park due to a little scheduling mishap at their preschool, and this was one of the pics I was able to get. Although I didn't end up including the banner in this one, I was excited to include a few special elements in the flowers.

Karan also has a call out for a sketch artist. Look HERE for the details.

One more scrappy item I'm quite excited about before I head out-- I've been looking at all sorts of altered items and always feel like I can never do them justice. I don't know. My crafty brain just isn't there yet or something, so I feel kinda insecure about my altered endeavors. So... This was just a huge HURRAH for me to complete as well as feel good about. It's a magnetic advent calendar made from a mini-muffin tin. These go for big bucks on Etsy shops, so maybe I can put some together for next year?! Let me know what you think...


Winter break is just around the corner! Only a day and two weeks (no, I don't quite have the hours down just yet!) So excited to spend some time just hanging out with the fam! We'll head out to cut down our tree this weekend and J's birthday is in less than two weeks! I'll have plenty of pics to keep me busy!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to say hello!
~Til next time <3
