I am actually sad to end this year because I had so many wonderful
things happen in my life. I was blessed with good health, a great job,
fantastic places to travel and
lots of family to spend the Holidays with!
How much better can it get and I can't
wait to see what's in store for the next year coming up....
So to end this year- I want to say Happy New Year to
all of you- and thank you for your wonderful comments
and a reason for me to share all these fun things everyday :)
I truly love to create things and now that
I submitted my 2nd Spellbinders project I will
have time to work on some of the New Valentines
projects that I have planned with my new papers...
Here are just a few pictures from my new camera!
Thanks Santa- you are the Best!
We have a huge family gathering on Christmas eve
with dinner and gifts for the kids and a white
elephant exchange for the parents. There were lots
of fun things unwrapped and the kids were all happy
with what they got...
I bought some new things this year to make for my
dining room. I made it into a blue and silver-snowy, icy,
snowman room for the holidays.
I really liked the way this candleholder
came out and I hung snowy sticks and snowflakes from
the chandelier that looks really neat when the lights
are dim and the tree lights are on....
It's always hard to get a good picture of the grandkids
and we snapped lots to get this one of all of them :)
and my sister and inlaws were out from out of state
so it added that much more fun to the days...
I love it when everyone shares their favorite ornaments
so I thought I would share some of my snowman collection
with all of you. Some of them I buy and some of them
I painted myself when I did decorative painting.
The snowman below is one of my favorites. My
mom always said to put on happy faces on all my
characters because they make you smile and I
think she was right because each year I look
forward to putting out all their smiling faces
and having everyone over to visit.... it was
a really fun Holiday Season this year!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I
wish you good health and all the best for 2012!!
Lots of Hugs, Teresa
