The project I created is a Christmas mini album. I used the Woodland Christmas collection (which I adore!). The album was created by using coptic stitching (if you’ve never done it, there are some great videos on youtube that can teach you, that's how I learned). I love this collection so much that I hate even cutting up the papers. I used part of the packaging to make the cover for this album. There it is. My secret is out. I hoard pretty patterned paper.

I left much of the album blank for now. I wanted to save room for pictures I take this Christmas. I only completed these two pages. The first is a picture of my baby boy (who is gigantic for some reason. Perhaps I should stop feeding him….). I asked for a “normal smile” so I could get a good picture of him by the tree we just put up. I got a face that resembles a person sucking on a sour lemon. The kid is out to get me, I’m telling you.



The next one is a precious picture of the aforementioned kiddo snuggled in with my Daddy. On a side note, I have the most amazing Daddy on earth (ahem, yes I’m 34. Yes, I call him Daddy.) This time last year he fell and broke his jaw into 8 pieces. I cannot tell you the fear I felt, because I cannot imagine my life without him in it. God blessed us to keep him a while longer. So glad that this year is better than last! I am taking advantage of this moment to tell how blessed I feel every time I see him hold my son. If you haven’t hugged those you love today, please do that now. I’ll wait here.


Sorry for being all sentimental, making Christmas albums does that to me. Anyway, this new collection is simply stunning. I was so excited when the package arrived that I ran amok down the hall at work shoving it in the faces of people who have absolutely no interest in paper crafts. They officially think I’m nuts, but if you get your hands on some of this paper, you’ll get it, trust me. ;) Thanks again for stopping by! Drop by on Friday and I'll announce a winner! Don't forget, your next stop is here
