|Finally am posting some pictures of my December Daily 2010.
If you want to see all of the pages, you can view them on my flickr page.
I think this is my 3rd or 4th DD. Looking back, I learned 2 main things:
1. Don’t try to create the page ahead of time. Stick with the dates only and allow for creativity later.
2. I rarely have ever finished a DD once Christmas passes….so, I prepared up to day 25, added 2 more pages and that’s all. Obviously, I can always add more pages, if time allows.
This year, i wanted a “vintage-feel”.
Thanks for looking!
|My first Starbucks Holiday “Red Cup” of 2010!
Beth made a late afternoon Starbucks run & surprised me!
YAY! The holidays have arrived!!!
|For those of you that may remember our yearly toilet paper roll exchange, here’s what happened this year.
(For those of you that have NO idea what I am talking about, you can read about it from my post last Christmas…to sum it up, my dad & I have been passing back & forth the same TP roll since 1988…read the story here.)
It was my turn this year. I had totally forgotten about it until about a week before Christmas. Well, in order to stump my dad, I knew I better get thinking.
I remembered a post that I had seen on a blog about making fabric Christmas trees….uh-huh, that’s it!
Here are the easy instructions to make a Fabric Christmas Tree:
My dad has a strong passion for supporting our troops overseas, and his home office is done in red-white-blue, so that is why I chose to use those colors, as oppose to traditional Christmas colors.
For my tree, my hubby hollowed out the center of the foam, so that the TP roll could easily be inserted and hidden.
It worked! I gave my dad this gift for his office on the 21st and after celebrating Christmas on the 25th, I had to give him a clue in order for him to find it!
We will see what he comes up with for next year!
|I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
I, for one, had a super-terrific Christmas day.
Above, is one of my gifts. This one, from my son, Nick.
More Christmas pix to come. Enjoy your day!
