It's Christmas Eve

My granddaughter having fun in the snow!!
She is sooo cute!

I can't believe we have had a whole year go by us. I am never ready for Christmas. I hate that. My resolution for the new year is to become better organized. That is my new goal. I have become better at being on time for things which was a past goal. It's pretty easy to do when things are eliminated which cause less time.

I did not find what I was shopping for last night. So I ended up getting something else instead. Not really that happy with the whole shopping experience but hey what can ya do? Improvise.

I never got my Christmas cards done. I didn't get many cards this year as I have in the past years. What is a Christmas card anyway? Why do people send cards saying Merry Christmas? Is it something that a person came up with to make money on? I am on a mission now to find out how sending a Christmas card all started. So if anyone out there knows anything please let me in on it. Instead of making cards I made homemade Mounds candy. It took me like four hours. I will never make them again. I got the recipe off someones blog. I like the store bought Mounds Bars better. I just hope the people I give to will enjoy them. I will send out a card to family and friends in my life.

It will just be a Wish for a Happy and Blessed New Year card.

Merry Christmas from
our warm cozy living room to yours.
Last night I had a fire going and Pippy really like it.
She is our fun Mainecoon Kitten. She came to live with us

I also need to finish my Christmas cards.

All I want for Christmas . . . 'ummmm? But first..

These two girls are the cutest! Then they grew up and are surely Daddy's little girls!
This is the proud Dad with our cute daughters all gown up. I luv this picture of them.

Hey, I made my list and I hope it was checked at least once. But what I want is for the bills to be paid and not set aside just so we can have gifts under the tree. I hate that cuz then after Christmas when the bills are behind and the oil tank needs to be refilled the dh gets grumpy when he can't seem to get caught up. Really.

I have been eyeing the New Making Memories Slice. Then I saw it on sale for $99 at A.C. Moore craft store. They sold out fast, so I was told. Now I have been on Ebay watching for one but people are bidding way over what they should be. I thought of this great idea. If everyone would take their turn and bid like a reasonable price then we could all share in lower prices instead of acting like if they don't bid they won't get one. It's like a mad craze to own one. I think it is way over priced for what it can actually do. It really is limited as to what the Quickcuts Silluette. Check it out over at TwoPeasinabucket site. There is a video demo. This machine is awesome. And Kristina has a kool vid on her blog showing how she uses it with her software.

Maine Winter Scenes

These are a few photos I have taken of some past winters here in Poland, Maine

Forcast for Maine tomorrow is Snow!
I am just glad it's not freezing rain.
Hope you Enjoy!

I can barely see out my kitchen window.

My yard is full of SNOW!

Looking up the road from my driveway going north.

These trees are across the road from me and were very pretty with the color of the sky .

Looking south this is what my road looks like after a snow storm.

These icicles were hanging off the roof of my house. Sure sign of heat loss. pretty in the sunshine.

I luv snowmen. They are one of the cutest of many decorations of winter. It brings back good memories of the times my sister and I would trudge thru the new fallen sticky snow to build the perfect snowman. But it was sad when he melted away.

I say , after I get a snowman for my collection, I have enough snowmen. Then there is always that one that is cuter than the last one.

Snowball the Cat

Snowball is trying to escape out the window.

When the girls had Barbie dolls and some of the dolls heads would break off he would find them and run away with it . He looks like he has a beard. Plus he is deaf and has one blue eye and one yellow eye. He is quite a character. Now he steals our clothes and drags shirts or towels around the house. One day I caught Snowball dragging one of my bras into the kitchen. The girls use to dress him up in doll clothes.

Some Cards Creations to Share

First photo up is of my Christmas stamps which I have set out on shelves. I needed to have inspiration around in plain view to be creative when I start making Christmas cards. I also decorated with a Christmas theme to put me in the Christmas mood. Next photo I posted a Thankyou card I created.
This card I created for Mother's Day.

Another Mother's Day card I created. With this one I cut out a flower I found on a gift card.
