A Little Bit of Christmas

Merry Christmas 2013-001

This is a quick card I made using My Digital Studio. If you are not familiar with this ask me about it. It is filled with thousands of Stampin' Up! digital product to use to create cards, books, scrapbook pages and more.

I hope you all had a great Christmas filled with family, friends, and love. We had the most wonderful time. My son, Jason, my daughter, Lynn Ann, her boyfriend, Don, and my grandson, Alex, were here. We had a brunch of scrambled eggs over roasted asparagus, baked French toast, bisquits and sasuage gravy, bacon, and pastries. After opening presents we played the new game Left, Right, Center. If you have not played this and you like games you should get it. Such fun, no thinking involved, and all ages can play. One of the gifts Jason gave to Lynn Ann and I was a bag of assorted things. My bag had a bottle of wine, a canister of tea, and a bottle of vinegar. Lynn Ann's bag had similar items. He then said the items all had something in common. They were all French! He said he was going to prepare a French dinner for us the day after Christmas which he did. It was fabulous. He even brought over a DVD of a walking tour through Paris which we watched with an assorted cheeses and French crackers appetizer.

Here are a few more Christmas photos.

Christmas Misc Collage

The angel is my one attempt at Tole painting which I did about 20 years ago.

Nativity CollageI have several Nativity sets. These are just a few of them. The set in the upper right corner was the first one I bought almost 50 years ago.

Santa CollageI have about 100 Santas which are displayed throughout the house. When possible I have written the name of who gave it to me and year on the bottom. It's always such good memories when I put them out.

Vintage ornaments CollageThese are a few of my vintage ornaments. The little German man in the upper left corner was on my grandmothers tree when she was a little girl. And the soldier was from my dad's store when I was a young girl. The other glass ornaments were my grandparents.

Family Christmas CollageJason and Lynn Ann cooking the French dinner. My son, Jeff, Becky, and grandchildren, Sofia and Anderson from Lexington, KY. And the bottom picture is my grandson, Alex, daughter, Lynn Ann, and her boyfriend, Don. I gave them each a tin of homemade Chex mix. They all opened them at the same time and all immediately started eating it.

I have had a bit of a break from stamping during the past two weeks so I am anxious to get back to it and to start creating with some of the new products from the upcoming Occasions mini catalog which will be available beginning January 3rd. If you do not have one yet let me know and I will get one to you.

Thanks for stopping by
