Welcome, December!

Hi friends and...happy first day of December! Can you believe it?!? December 1st! When I flipped the calendar today, I had to take a few moments...with a paper bag. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out....
Seems like I flip the calendar to December & my To Do List doubles in length! LOTS of fun projects to work on. LOTS of fun projects to share. AND a determination to try to slow down a bit and enjoy every minute of this joyful season.

Thanksgiving week brought an early snow & we traveled over the pass to spend the weekend with my In-Laws. It has been a long time since we've had a snowfall before Thanksgiving in Western Washington, so it was a bit exciting! Snow makes everything seem so magical, doesn't it?

(Um, ok...the dirty snow by the side of the road doesn't look so magical. Note to self: Learn how to use Photoshop!)

I've been working with the super fun Citrus Tree Studio 'Holiday Hoopla' December kit...and reveal day is coming up on December 5th! Here are a few sneak peeks of a couple of my projects...

There's a second December kit called 'Christmas Potpourri' that features The Girls' Paperie 'Tinsel & Twig'. It looks amazing too! Go here to see more sneak peeks from the fabulous Tammy, Melonie & Rita! And don't forget to check back on Friday to see the full reveal of both kits!

Also...go visit the Paper Issues blog and link up your 'Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus/Christmukkah' projects! Lots of inspiration to be had over there...
