Creative Month & Origins

Eventhough I have not been scrapbooking as much as I would like this month, I have been crafting and creating almost constantly. I hosted four gingerbread house workshops with my playgroup and my boys (ages 3 & 4) made these adorable houses!

I have also completed Christmas cards orders for four customers totalling over 250 cards. Did I make my own cards this year? No. I "cheated" and ordered photo cards from Shutterfly. However, I do not feel guilty at all. Last year I never mailed cards...I only managed to address the envelopes!

New in stock is the Origins Collection from Basic Grey. I cannot wait for things to slow down a bit so that I can make something with this delicious new paper collection!

Making Memories

December is our month for making memories...not too much preserving of memories taking place at the moment. We'll be back in the swing of things soon! I am working on Ali Edwards' December Daily scrapbook, but mine is organized to cover 25 holiday memories as opposed to the specific 25 days leading up to Christmas. As I finish up the last of my custom holiday card orders (and my own holiday cards), I will share pics of my album.

New products are still be added to the online store weekly and I am very excited about some of the new lines and manufacturers that we will be carrying in 2010! January is the month each year where I try to do some serious scrapbooking catching up so I cannot wait to get my hands on some new merchandise.

I hope all of you are enjoying the holidays!
