It is a rainy wet grey day here, and I wasn't in the mood to be wrapping presents with my three children running around the house. Lol, that could be asking for trouble :p! So I decided I would make a Christmas card, while 2 of my 3 were having a snooze out in the living room and my oldest was also making his own xmas card behind me.

I hadn't been into one of the crafty stores that I frequent in awhile, so one day about a week ago I decided to head on over to Carousel Rubber stamp store to check out if she had anything new in. Well, I found this AMAZING Santa stamp in there and Dejah(the owner of Carousel) helped me figure out what I could do with this image. So here is what I did with this Santa image:

I needed to wrap up a gift for Julie, as I am seeing her tonight at a movie night we are going to, and all my gift bags here are for babies or bdays not xmas (of course just my luck). So here is what I came up with, I made this bag out of full 12 by 12 sheets of card stock from PhotoMemories. The ribbon I got from Michael's a few years ago, thought it looked elegant and sort of Christmasy to use :)!
Saturday afternoon we had a family Bday party to goto, this family Bday party was for 4 people: my dh, my Uncle Phil, my Nephew, and my dd. It was held at my parents house, and people just came over for the afternoon for tea/coffee plus cake :)!

Last night, I wanted to make a Christmas card using the new Cuttlebug folder that I picked up the other day from Photo Memories. LOVE this folder, it is bigger than the other one's and covers more of your card :D! I also used a stamp that I haven't used in a little bit, then I used the puffy white paint on my card but had a bit of a issue with the bottle it comes in.

Thursday night was my monthly crafty night out with the gals, for this crafty night we had to make 8 Xmas cards and so I wanted to do something different. Here is what I came up with :)! For this card I first cuttle bugged my green card stock with the Snowflake embossing folder, and then I used my Nestabilities to cut out the large label out of White card stock (from Carousel), a circle out of the same white card stock and a tiny gold square Nestabilities. I then took the white circle and I embossed the gold pattern onto the circle card stock, once I did that I took a sponge and inked up the white card stock using my Bravo Burgundy SU ink pad. So no that is not Burgundy card stock that I embossed on, lol, thought I would do something different.

Well, I am sure you are all anxious in finding out how our presentation to the School board went the other night :)! We were originally given 5 minutes to do our presentation, but they decided right there before we went up that they would give us 10 minutes and in the end we had 30 minutes. They kept asking questions, commending us one by one, shaking their head at the state of how things are, we kept answering questions and asking questions ourselves. Then they asked if we had something else to add, I told them I did and here is what I said:

I know I am such a bad blogger lately, but here is my reason for the past week and this week as well...I am getting ready to do one of the BIGGEST things I have ever done in my life. Not only am I a full time stay at home mom of 3 beautiful children, but now am working on a side project that involves being an advocate for all Special Needs children or children with Learning disabilities in HRM. Yep, I know a big job and yes I am crazy :p! Not to worry I am not taking this task on by myself, I have a friend named Laura Campbell who is a parent of a Autistic girl who is in grade 4 at my son's school.

The other day I had to goto the Post office, it is about 20 minutes away from our house...on the way home something caught my eye. So I looked and I saw a HUGE new playground behind a community center just up the street from our post office, well I was excited to see this here because if you want to goto a good playground you have to drive into the city. There are several play structures there for different ages, and there are also swing sets there too for older kids and little ones :).
