We had a really wonderful holiday this year. After weeks of snow it is now all the consistency of a slushy. We got our last good snowfall Christmas morning, what timing! Here are some of my favorite pictures, and no I didn’t get a polaroid camera, but quite possible something better. I have been eagerly [...]

Well, we made it downtown yesterday via the max train and were treated to nearly empty stores and Santa all to ourselves. Seriously, we were it. It was almost funny to see how long we could make the poor guy come up with things to talk with the kids about. The snow is expected to keep falling [...]

We have an unusual amount of snow outside keeping us at home. We are venturing out this morning to go downtown to visit Santa (wish us luck!). We spent the better part of the day yesterday sledding and gave me the chance to finish up some holiday decorating. Here are a few peeks around. a [...]

My last big thing can now be checked off! I made these mini calendar cards, now just need to get them sent off. I’m really happy with how they turned out.

This year I decided to stream line my gift wrapping. I bought two papers, two ribbons. All of my wrapping will be done in some combination of these (with the exception of Santa gifts, we don’t want a repeat of the ‘you’re santa aren’t you, that’s your bakers twin’ gate of 2007)…

The last of my holiday orders went out this morning and I am settling in for the snow and ice (eek!). The kids are out of school probably the whole week, and I am finally sitting down to plan our holiday cards. I went and got a nice stack of movies for the kids and magazines [...]

I book marked this a bit ago knowing it would be the perfect teacher gift. The kids and I made a couple yesterday and it’s a really fun and easy project. You can find step by step directions at Cheeky Magpie. We used a little green paper leaf instead of the ribbon. Of course in the [...]

We may see a little snow around here this weekend! The kids are beyond excited. We get just enough snow here each year to look forward to it with great anticipation. Usually it amounts to a few days of flurries, and maybe if we’re lucky, enough to sled down dead mans hill. Happy weekend!

We have done a little decorating around here for the holidays, but I am waiting until I finish up all my orders before I really tackle it. My favorite spot so far this year is the mantle. I put these cute little toad stools under glass and wound this really lovely ribbon (from Martha Stewart [...]

A quick little post today as I am busy, busy, busy getting all my work done. If you’re waiting on a painting, no fear, I am hoping to get scans out this week of the pieces I am working on. On a side note, just got these today… super cute, practical and now I can [...]

I usually try to have all my holiday shopping done by Thanksgiving, after poring over internet sites and searching through local stores to find the perfect presents for the kids. Well, that didn’t happen this year. The kids are older and in Ian’s case he knows exactly what he wants (think star wars) and in [...]
