12 Days of Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. As I sit here and type as our day is slowly winding down...I just can't believe how lucky I am for having such an amazing family. I know I joke about "brain" a lot but he really is the best. I am so thankful for everything we have. We work hard and it has paid off. Today as I washed dishes, I was even thankful for water. I stood there and wondered {with the water off, of course ;} what it must be like to not have water...to have to walk miles for it and we can wake up and turn on our faucets and it is just there. I just think it is all the small things added up that makes life so wonderful.

In the celebration of the holidays, Websters Pages had a crop and it was a BLAST! If you know me, use every itty bitty piece of my Websters! I participated and got almost every challenge done! I have one on my desk that I just couldn't get done and I am definitely making Karola's house...it is gorgeous....

but here are a few things I created:

This is one of my favorites...I altered a Coffee Cozy! I used Core'dinations Whitewash and my Cuttlebug.

And this is a wall hanging I did with some more Core'dinations from the Chocolate Box collection.


Here is a close-up of this cute little gingerbread house. LOVE this pp!





And then for one of the challenges for making a gift bag, I used the Crayon Box from Creative Cuts& More. I ran the Websters Papers and the tag through my Cuttlebug and finished it off with a myStampBOX stamp from the Hohoho set.
