It’s over… thanksgiving… all that anticipation and planning, and looking forward… it comes and goes SO fast! We really had such a great holiday weekend!
My kids were out of school wed, thurs and Friday—so we really did have a legit long weekend that was full of family and friends! It’s awesome to live so close to family – we have so much fun together! We all got our assignments for our feast, and planned out our day- the men in our family all went to shoot guns in the morning, and the littles and the ladies did some fun crafts. (thank you Pinterest!... I mean, how awesome is that!?) We made more of the Oreo Turkeys, the paper cup Pilgrim hats and some SUPER cute turkey napkin rings... ... i quickly whipped up THIS Caramel Corn really quick and filled the cute hats. cute stuff! and the kids had a great time crafting!
We did squeeze in a movie, a couple workouts, and slept in!! it was definitely enjoyable!
And guess what…? I totally boycotted Black Friday! I am sorta regretting it—I mean, I could be all “done” with Christmas shopping by now. But- it was totally stressing me out! I was felling all this pressure to make decisions! I was getting a million emails about every store offering all these sales- it freaked me out!? SO… I have to face it. I think I am all about ‘cyber Monday!’
I do have something super fun and exciting to share… a couple of weeks ago, Jessica Sprague came to town on business, and we got to spend some time together—we got talking and imagining… like we do when we are together, and decided to whip up a ‘christmas’ collection of digi papers. Well, one collection morphed into TWO collections (ok, we couldn’t help ourselves, the green and red combo came first, but we both love turquoise and grey so much for the holidays!) that we ended up with 2 amazing—MIND BOGGLING collections for your crafty pleasure to celebrate the season! Jessica is prolific in her creative and photoshop genius; and every time we work on something, she teaches me something new. It’s amazing! (I am ‘growing my skills’)
SO… let me show you…each collection has 20 backgrounds.
