Happy New Year!

I'm finally back after taking some much needed time for family and Holidays! I hope you all had a marvelous Holiday season and that you all took LOTS of pictures.
I know many of you are dying to see these:

Santa came through and brought him the Cheetos and yes, I let him eat them right there under the Christmas Tree:)
I can't say this year's Christmas was perfect around here...not even close. We have been under fire from a variety of viruses running through the Coleman Castle and unfortunately on Christmas we were attacked again. So many of us were sick that we actually delayed the Christmas celebration! Santa brought the children sleds, we had a RARE White Christmas and they were all too sick to sled.

This photo was taken several days AFTER Christmas:

New Year's Eve, on the other hand, was FANtastic! 
We were all finally well and we went to a big bash right ACROSS the street! How convenient is that?!?! I took this as a hostess gift...decided at THE last minute to whip out a little cutesy for the bottle. 

...took me two minutes, start to finish. 
Here's How:
I die cut the scalloped circles, layered them and adhered them together. 
Then, I punched out three flowers, arranged them and secured them with a brad. 
Next, I used a glue dot to adhere the flower to the circle base.
Finally, I wrapped the gold ribbon around the bottle and stuck on the "cutesy."

This year I decided to skip resolutions and just go with a single word to live by.  More on that in a future post;)

The kids all went back to school on Tuesday so I have been playing in my scraproom for TWO days! I have a spotlight assignment with GCD Studios this month so I made a few new things with my GCD toys {ChipArt, Joyful Peace, Melody Ross}
Here I embellished a simple manilla folder to keep all my scrappy assignments in. I even added a scrap of GCD's Joyful Peace to a binder clip so I can hang my folder. Much safer AWAY from the kitties;)

I started my post off with this star, my latest star, y'all know how I love to alter stars! I made it with more Joyful Peace, some trims, Glimmermist and Stickles. I had such fun pounding out the word JOY! My family wondered what all the noise was coming from my scraproom and I happily told them it was my ChipArt tool. 
{It doubles as a tension reliever;)}

Another thing I have really enjoyed creating lately are these sweet little paper pouches. I gave lots of these out to teachers {stuffed with the makings of Snowman Soup} this year.

Mark your calendars for January 15th! I will be part of the Let's Scrap Blog Hop {prizes} AND we will be having a crop at Kitchen Keepsake {prizes}! So stay tuned.
