Is it Really?

Is it really that time of the year again?  In a couple of weeks it will be Halloween and then Thanksgiving (in the US) and the next thing you know it's Christmas and New Years.  I don't know about you but I always find that the next few months fly by.  I remember before I went back to work, I used to have all my holiday shopping done by now.  This year and last...not so much.  The same goes for having my holiday cards made.  And I can't bring myself to buy them when I have all that crafty goodness packed away in my cupboards.  

So heres my first card of the season, inspired by the October Viva la Verve sketch.  I've made another card for this sketch but it will have to wait.

Tomorrow we are on our way to Disneyland.  The one nice thing about being back at work is having a little bit of money to put aside for special things like this.  That and I traded in a bunch of travel points that we had been collecting for 8 years.  We are headed there with friends and neighbors and very much looking to our first family holiday.  I'm hoping for a fabulous family adventure, but wonder if I'll need to be put in a padded cell once we arrive home. LOL

Take care everyone and have a fantastic weekend!

Grateful for Time

Well it's been a long time hasn't it.  Almost a year since my last post and how I've missed it.  I've decided that I need to make time for me and what better way but in my craft time.  I really do need that time for my sanity.  And I do miss the support of this wonderful crafting community.

For my first attempt and getting comfortable with things I decided on the latest Mojo Monday sketch which just happens to be contest week.  I decided on a thanksgiving theme as tomorrow is our Canadian Thanksgiving.  I'm off to dinner tonight with the in-laws.  Anyhow I hope find some kind of inspiration and wish you all my fellow Canadians a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving and to everybody else enjoy a lovely week ahead.
