November, December and Framed Layouts

Here is the last month of the calendar and two framed layouts that I made my dad for Christmas. I am hoping that he can hang them in his camp.

Gift Purse

I made this gift purse today with some festive snowflake paper. I have a lot of non-CTMH paper that I love but never remember to use. My friend Jessica gave me the idea for this purse. The original idea came from Check it out because this is an awesome box and really simple to make.

Making Christmas Cookies

Kellen and Mommy made Christmas cookies today. I am attending a cookie exchange tomorrow night and need to bring 10dz cookies. That means that I will be bringing home 10dz cookies to my small family of four. Well hopefully some of them can be frozen and I think my neighbor just might be getting a plate of cookies. Hope everyone is feeling festive and getting ready for the holiday season.

Is this Nolan or Al Bundy?

Nolan fell asleep after a long day of being sick. This is his favorite position. What a man.

Snow in Virginia

To those you reading this in Upstate NY you are probably thinking "Big Deal". I will see very little of the white stuff this winter and definatly no more than a couple inches at a time. I am praying for a white christmas. But not too much because my family is traveling her to visit the day after Christmas. This weather makes me want to put on the Christmas music, drink hot cocoa and wrap some presents.

O Christmas Tree

I put our Christmas tree up yesterday and seems nice to be home for Christmas this year. Lst year we were in the midst of selling our house and moving. We were staying with my parents and so I never got to put up my own tree. Kellen really likes the tree this year and seems to be interested in all the ornaments. I hope my tree makes it until Christmas.

Cork Board and House Album

I made this Cork/Magnetic Board for my son Nolan's room. I bought the board and then decorated it to match his bedroom. It is a Christmas present and I will add pictures of family when I get them. Also Nolan can show off awards and artwork that he makes at school. Really easy and inexpensive gift. I also made this house shaped album for a Christmas gift. I am waiting for all my pictures from Snapfish so I will add them later.

Baby Rowan's Birthday Card

My niece Rowan will be turning one in less than a month. Time sure does pass quickly. Here is a picture of her birthday card. I really love these colors together. Chocolate, Blush and Garden Green. If my artwork inspires you to start papercrafting go to and place an order with CTMH consultant Jessica Moore.
