A couple of gifts that I made!

Here are 2 gifts that I made. One is for my mother-in-law and has a picture of her 3 children on it. The other is a gift that I made for Natalie's kindergarten teacher. It is a dry erase board. I am also working a a gallon can for one of my friends. So, in spite of being busy with all the normal and un-normal stuff--I managed to get a couple of things done... YAY! I wish every one a safe & merry Christmas! I will be out of town after Christmas to visit with my son and family in New Orleans...

The Scrapbook Junkie

This pass weekend I had the pleasure of joining some friends (and making new friends) at The Scrapbook Junkie in Weber TX. Earlier this year when I attended Scrapfest in Covington La, I met a lady who approached me to see where at in TX I lived as she too lived in the TX area. As it turn out, she lived near me and she contact me for us to meet up and scrap at a local scrapbook store (Maridawn's). At the store, she & her friend Brenda invited me to be a part of a scrapbook weekend that they were planning with some LA friends right here in Houston. So, that is how this all came about! To make a long story short (yeah, right!!!). We scrapped Friday 10 - 12, Saturday 9 - 2, and Sunday 9 - 5! Each day we made an awesome make & take. We also met some other scrappers while there and I will be meeting with a couple of them to scrap from time to time together. I am really loving living here in Katy and having a lot of fun making new friends... I didn't do any scrapping in my albums but I did get a lot of gifts done (19 to be exact)! Now that I am home, I plan on that being my last scrapbooking event until after the 1st of the year. I need to get through Christmas & New Year's... Here are the things that I did while on my weekend getaway at the Scrapbook Junkie and the fantastic group of ladies that I scrapped with!
