I finally decided how I wanted to display my prompts for December! I used the magnetic cookie sheet idea since I didn’t have a clipboard. I used the freebie paper provided, some old greeting cards, ribbon and a memories sticker from Micheal’s, and then I made a small digi scrap of Grant playing in leaves using the “All I Want” series from Sweet Shoppe Designs. Perfect! Glad Grant took a good nap this morning 🙂

HIH Day 2 & 3

Ok I just have so much to be excited about right now! My new laptop is on its way (YEAH!) for starters. Next, I have my prompts printed out to get some scrapbooking ideas going for the holidays (HIH Day 2). Third, I just found an awesome cooking blog with the best popcorn ideas….our best bites! I have a feeling I am going to have to make the peppermint bark popcorn and maybe scrapbook the recipe somehow. Lots of ideas to get me going!! And yes, I have used way too many exclamation points in this post 🙂

When I think of the holidays the first word that comes to mind is TRAVEL. When I was younger that was something very important, since family and grandparents lived hours away. Packing and leaving home can make things a little stressful and out of your comfort zone, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Now that I have my own family some travel still seeps its way in to our holidays. I think that amidst all the parties and plans I want the emphasis to be on the importance of friends and family. That those people make our lives richer and more interesting.
We have a lot planned already for this year. Thanksgiving with my husband’s family, Christmas with mine, work Christmas party, chruch Christmas party (maybe?),probably snow skiing/snowboarding with my sister, and finally a trip to the Vancouver Olympics. One of the best things that I can do to help make this season memorable for my family is not to stress out and focus on enjoying the time that we spend together in our various activities. So….I need to make some concrete goals I guess (I should be well practiced at that as a Physical Therapist). Goal #1 I will take meaningful photographs of our different events and scrapbook them in a way that helps us remember the experience. Goal #2 Our family will enjoy special Saturday breakfasts with each other at home. Goal #3 I will enjoy digi scrapping the holidays (who couldn’t) and include in that 20 minutes each day dedicated to that purpose.
Can’t wait to get started!
