Did you survive the Christmas Holiday?

Good morning and a happy Monday morning to you! I hope your holiday was a wonderful one, filled with family, friends and food! Mine was all of the above and more! :)
Right now, I'm enjoying the quiet in the house. Emma and her two cousins(Jenna & Karissa) are still sound to sleep and so is the dh and furballs. I'm up way early and liking my new desk that my dh and Emma gave me for Christmas. They also gave me a 1TB EHD, so I'm busy moving everything over there. (Which is going to take some time... my digi stash is humungo! They spoil me, big time! (And I luv it!)
I have a few LOs to share, I know... big surprise! :) Well hey, it is my favorite passed time you know! These will reflect a small portion of the fun we had through out our holiday. Sledding, baking, Christmas and more. I've been busy scrappin' with my stock-pile of digi goodies, cuz I felt like I was buying, but not using my purchases.
Thus, none of these are for my creative team spots.

(*Complete credits of my LOs can be found here, in my DSA gallery.)
Speaking of purchasing, here is my latest. Isn't it a beauty? You can scoop it up over at The Shabby Pickle. I'm certainly gonna need this; I have so many holiday pics to scrap! So off I go to scrap! Tah! Tah! :)

Happy Sunday!

Well, up and at it and ready to face another day. It's early here in Wisconsin... it's just beginning to get light outside. It's 22 degrees F and there are a few flurries coming down. It's suppose to be a cloudy day with the high of 27 degrees F. Bbbbrrr....

Well, I finished up my Christmas shoppin' yesterday; what a good feeling. Today I'm going to finsish my wrapping, do some ironing and then just relax. So overall, it should be a good day.
I'm lookin' forward to a short work week this week, with only 3 work days!!! One reason why I love the holidays; I so love the extra time to me and my family!

In my digi world, you may know, that I'm currently on the creative teams for the brillant and creative Creations by Rachel and Late Night Scraps. Both sell at Plucky Pear Designs, and if you haven't checked out their shops, you really need too! They have a beautiful store and superb designs. I just love scrappin' with their work; we are a perfect fit. Well, in addition to the fun with those teams, I've also found a new digi home at Elemental Scraps. I was pulled into this site, first by their products and then I found their forum was full of friendly gals. Thus, this is my new home! I just recently put in an application in for the CT their too; I'm full of anticipation waiting to hear who the lucky gals are... The dead line was the 18th, so we'll find out soon!
So exciting!

Otherwise, I have a number of LOs to share. None of them are CT LOs, they are scraps using some of my goodies I've picked up lately. I was feeling like my digi supply was being neglected, so I've been digging into it lately, and it's been fun!

Well, I'm out of here for the day... but will be back soon! Have a great Sunday!

Okay, with a huge snow storm headed our way, I just wanna say, that this is where I wanna be!!! This is our annual vacation spot in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico... the Rio Jalisco all-inclusive resort! It really is paradise and the beauty lingers daily, in my mind... It's one of the things that keeps me going from day-to-day, knowing fun and relaxation is getting closer... We vacation here in March or April and we are count the days until our next visit. The hubby is watching the market for good pricing, which is a good sign that vacation time is soon around the corner.

Anyhow, it sounds as if my Emma's wish, of no school is going to come true! The forecast reads 10-16 inches of now! I guess they'll be some sledding and hot chocolate going on really soon! So much for a tropical beach hey? LOL!
Well, how about some digi talk?... Of course, I must talk digi, it's my thing! :)
