Welcome to the Christmas 2011 Blog Hop!!!! 

If you've just happened to come across my blog please check out each of the super talented ladies blogs below. There will be some fun prizes along the way, AND there will be some AWESOME ideas!

Have fun and thank you for attending our blog hop.

I am so excited to share a few projects that I have been working on!! Many more to come throughout the weeks. I have been so busy working on my December Daily this year (first time attempting this) and I am actually keeping up, so excited, trying to keep it simple. I am working on a video showing what I am doing with my December Daily, I am hoping to have that up sometime next week. How many are attempting the December Daily this year? So far, i have found that keeping it simple is really working for me, I don't stress if I can't work on the page for that day, I do make sure that I journal quick notes through out the day and take a picture,  so then I can just work on it the next day or over the weekend. I have a simple format for each day, a little spot for journaling and then above that goes my picture, I will show you guys everything next week, can't wait to share that with you. Now to my projects below:

I altered this frame for my Etsy shop, it was a deep brown color before, but I wanted to make it a Christmas frame, I painted it with some gesso first, and then I painted over that with an acrylic red paint. I love the distressed look that it gave, it looks like distressed wood. I then took some gold smooch spritz and spritzed all over the frame. I took a clear stamp from Crafty Secrets and stamped a greeting at the top, with some gold acrylic paint. 

I used Stampin Up supplies for the next two cards, I love this stamp set, it is so cute and you can make so many variations of cards with it. It is called "Snow Much Fun" the # for it is 122562

The next few cards are using some Graphic 45 papers that I created in a class, so cute. Love Graphic 45!!!
