Joy to you and yours !


Happy Saturday to you....and a fine Saturday it is as I am off work and just waiting for my DIL and the kids to come over and we are baking today, no diets in this family at this time of year !  We went looking at Christmas lights last night and to Glendale Glitters it was a beautiful night all the kids had a great time especially my youngest DGS who will be two in March he would just squeel and jabber and the Santa would roll out of his little mouth :)  It has just been crazy around here between work, Christmas shopping and a new puppy this is the first time in a few weeks I have actually sat down and did some coloring.  I have some things colored up so now I can just put them together this week in between wrapping.

Each year since I have started crafting I make ornaments for my family so here is a quick for you, I just love this Tilda she is "Longing Tilda" and can be used for so many different things. She is from the fairytale collection and is in stock now at Magnolia-licious I picked up these joy ornaments in the dollar bin in one of my shopping trips.

Tilda is stamped on Cryogen white, colored with copics

At the Magnolia-licious Highlites challenge blog this month Diana asked us to create LETTER and/or WORD projects using our Magnolia stamps! You can interpret this in many fun ways and it's perfect for the holiday and gift-giving season!  Be sure to stop by and look at all the great inspiration from all the gals.

I hope you all are finding some time to enjoy this special time of the year with your family and friends.   Remember..... It is not about the presents but about "His Presence"
