12 Days of Christmas Challenge

I've had the delightful opportunity to *sponsor* one day in the 12 Days of Christmas design challenge...for those of us who are just not quite ready to stop making Christmas cards :) You can read more about the challenge here: and my lovely amazingly talented cyber sister in Christ - Dina Kowal - has graciously agreed to *host* my day...since I'm, well, if you've followed along for any period of time....'htmly challenged'. You can see Dina's original post on her blog: and there is a great Heart & Soul prize for the winner. Be sure to post your cards in the Splitcoast Gallery using the code DD12days02. Have fun! and may God bless you in the new year abundantly ><>

O Christmas Tree...O Christmas Tree....

When we moved a few years ago, we had the added blessing of living in the middle of a Christmas tree farm :) They are just beautiful noble firs, and we only need to walk out in the field to get one. What a gift! And they look awesome when it snows. I've *packratted* so many ornaments in our married life that I actually 'rotate' them- one year it's all about the snowflake- and the next it's all the rest. So here's the *flakey* result :) May you all enjoy your Christmas preparations- don't forget to prepare your heart as well ><>
