Happy New Year's Eve

I just got back from the Zumbathon at the gym...a 2 hour party of shakin' your groove thang! mags went with me and we had a great time...they even had party hats and those paper blower things.

Well, the new year is almost here so I might as well share my December Daily pages that are done. I am still not done, but have high hopes that I can complete the rest of the pages before I go to work on Monday...if not, no worries...

I picked one activity from each day to document, even if there were a bunch of things going made the project manageable for me. For most activities, I did a small single page LO. I used the Studio Calico/Ali E. kit and added some bits and pieces from my goes...

December 1st...mags had a choir concert that was a great way to kick off the season!

dec 1

the AC alphas came from the kit...I added KI lace paper, Studio Calico Autumn Press paper from the mini paper pack, some music note paper (I think that was was just a small piece of paper in my Christmas bin), a doily, a little tag and an evalicious button.

December 2nd...I made and hung up a circle paper garland in mags' room.

dec 2

Crate Peppermint paper, washi tape, misc brads and pearls, Studio Calico Autumn Press paper from the mini paper pack, Ali E. stamps.

December 3rd...I took my dad to the airport after his Thanksgiving visit. I wish he lived closer and we could see each other more often.

dec 3

Crate Peppermint paper, Studio Calico Autumn Press paper from the mini paper pack, washi tape, Sass paper (green) and JB paper from the kit, a tag, doily and Crate (?) brad.

December 4th...I took mags shopping so she could spend her Christmas money from her Nana.

dec 4

JB paper, kraft pinked circle, flower and brad from the kit, Studio Calico Autumn Press paper from the mini paper pack, Spellbinders die cut and a tag.

December 5th...Paul's mom's 87th birthday celebration...we ordered in chinese and had 3 different kinds of cake!

dec 5

October Afternoon star paper, Sass green grid paper, Crate Peppermint paper, Studio Calico Autumn Press paper from the mini paper pack, doily, baker's twine, Quickutz nested star dies.

I'll be posting all of the pages in the next few days...but now I need to go and get to work on day 14!

How about some birthday cards?

Just a few cards that I made for the students at school who had birthdays in December. I used some Studio Calico scraps from Back 40 and Met. I also used the Sunday Sketch from Studio Calico...

Merry Christmas

I have been very busy finishing up at school and prepping for the holidays...I know you know what I am talking about. It seems like it was extra busy this year and I still don't think I have everything done!

I did make some Christmas cards for my fellow teachers...everyone else got store bought cards with a picture of mags in it...a girl has only so much time for crafting! Maybe I should start today making Christmas cards and even if I only made 1 a week, I would still have 52 to send out next year...what do ya think?

I used some Studio Calico sketches and old Basic Grey that I promise myself I will use up every year, but I think it reproduces throughout the year because I never seem to be any closer to using it up!

I have also been working on my December Daily...I have not kept up every day needless to say, but I am determined to complete it before I go back to work in January...I'll take some pics soon and post them!

I hope your holidays are filled with joy and peace.
