This week has been a bit busy. I am sure we are all doing our best to get our Christmas shopping finished. Seems like it is a never ending task! :) I will not being doing any layouts next week and will be doing a few piecings to help with the task of finishing up this years scrapbooks! LOVED doing the ice skating layout this week! My girls are naturals on the ice and are always trying to get their Dad to take them to the rink. It is a good thing he enjoys it as well!

Our little town of Parker is a great place to live. You get small town living yet you are 20 minutes from Downtown Denver. My son had a photography project for school and these are just some of the pictures that he took. Gotta say, I just love our little town....

Well here are this weeks listings. I was surprised that I was actually able to get four done this week. Something about this very very cold week that just left me feeling drained and tired. We haven't gotten past the 20 degree mark in about 3 days and it has gone as low as negative 15! The children actually had a delayed start yesterday due to the cold, it was negative 30 with the wind chill at around 7 am..... The bus stop was definitely NOT the place to be.. :)
My favorite layout this week would have to be the Nutcracker Ballet. It took me over four hours to complete due the detailing of the little bears outfits. There is Clara holding her nutcracker, The Prince, The Nutcracker, The Mouse King and what Nutcracker layout would be complete without the Sugarplum fairy! :)
Hope everyone is having a great week. I am going out today to enjoy the toasty 26 degrees!

Happy Holidays!!!!! I have had my Christmas decorations up since the day after Thanksgiving!!!!! I just LOVE Christmas and decorating the house. I take pictures of my home to not only show my friends but my family. We live miles and miles away from both my family and Brian's. The only way we can share some of our home is through this blog.

I seriously can't believe just how fast this year has gone by! I guess that is what happens when you keep yourself super busy. :)
I had a great time doing this weeks layouts! Who wouldn't LOVE working with glitter and I used a good deal of it this week! I get a variety of questions regarding the amount of time that it takes me to do a layout. I normally work on ebays listings Monday thru Wednesday, and spend Thursdays and Fridays doing special orders. It normally takes me around 4 hours to do one layout. The Christmas Caroling and the Santa's sleigh this week took over six hours each! I sometimes, get wrapped up in making the piecings and before I realize it, hours have flown by.
Hope that everyone is getting their shopping done! :)
