excuses ....

Okay, so if you have tried to keep up with my blog lately you will have noticed that I have not been posting much (or anything!). So here is my excuse ... we had to get a new laptop as our poor, overused, other one had finally seen its last download! We loved it to death. And I transferred all my pics to Shutterfly, as to not lose them completely. Learned that from experience when Teagan was 4 months old. But I can't download pics from Shutterfly to blogger. So, I don't have many pictures of my cards and projects to share as of yet. And, my back-up/secondary excuse is that I had a lot of special orders the last few months (yea!) and so wasn't doing much card making or crafting for myself.

I am almost finished with my Christmas cards so will post those once I drop all the ones being mailed at the post office. Until then here are a few samples or recent work:







These were all made for a friend to use as her Christmas cards. I made all the samples and she liked them all (that was nice and easy!) She requested a mix of all them. I will share some others in the next day or so :) Meanwhile here is also a pic of my crazy kids during our annual Christmas card photo shoot:



Needless to say, this was not the one chosen for this year's card but one of these years we must may send out a goofy card because this type of picture is much easier to get!

Merry Christmas :)

I have been missing your posts! Glad to see that you are okay and things are going well. I love the cards you made. My favorites are the mitten card (so cute...how clever to put the clothespin and "rope" on it) and the deer friends card. I like them all but those especially! The picture of your kids is priceless! I think that is a great picture to send out! Those are the kinds I get, too, now that Javan is more mobile and constantly turning his head or looking away. LOL Hope your Christmas was wonderful!
