Christmas Gift Tags

Christmas is only 1 month and 2 days away!
This year i think i'm on top of things, no more last minute shopping for moi =)

Here are some quick and easy gift tags i made with  Echo Parks Holly Jolly Christmas.
Seriously this is my go to Christmas paper this year! hehe

The kids are excited for their  birthday and we need a place to put all their presents, so i think the tree is going up this weekend! I'll post a picture once its up.
One more night till we get crazy and do some Black Friday shopping, i'm making a list in case i forget something. Hoping to finish the gift shopping this week.

To those celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, have a wonderful day with your loved ones.
Thanks for stopping by!

Merry and Bright

Wow, its a cold and windy night tonight! At least there isn't snow around here! =)
Right now a nice cup of tea sounds good. 
To continue on with my Christmas cards.
Here is card #3: Merry and Bright
(sorry the pic is a little slanted,lol )

I used Holly Jolly Christmas by Echo Park again.
Seriously, i can make a tons of cards with this line! I love them.
I added some twine and some tear drop i-rock from Imaginisce.

I got some more Christmas shopping done. Yay!
My sister is watching the kids while hubby and I sneak across the border for some BF shopping!
(really, we're not sneaking in. We have Nexus, which makes crossing the border a lot quicker, though i'm not sure that will be the case come Thursday/Friday!)

I'm sure those of you celebrating Thanksgiving will have tons to share.
I'm looking forward to hearing all about it!
Thanks for stopping by!

My 1st Christmas card of the Year.

Christmas is just around the corner, just under 6 weeks actually! This year i'm going to start making my Christmas cards early, ( as well as do some early Christmas shopping!)

Card #1 :  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

Papers are from Simple Stories- 25 Days of Christmas. I had never heard of them before, but i love their papers!

I know most of you are getting ready for the US Thanksgiving then its on to Christmas. For us in Canada we are heading straight for Christmas mode =).
I have a couple of friends that have thier Christmas tree and stockings already up! Too early? What do you think? When do you get your tree and decorations up?
We usually get our tree up around the first week of December. My kids birthdays are in December (7 & 11) so all their presents go under the tree and its like a whole month of presents for them! LOL... they love it. 

Hope you're all having a great Monday! Its cold and windy here in BC.

thanks for stopping by!

November already!

How was everyones Halloween yesterday?
We had a fun time at my daughters Halloween party at school.
Here are some pictures:

                                          Arriving at school with her brother.

                                          Digging for some bugs, skulls and rats among other things!

                                          Decorating a pumpkin cookie.

                                          Crafting project. I think it was a jack-o-lantern door hanger.

                                           Halloween Bingo!

                                          Ready to go trick-or-treating!  Spidergirl and Black Spiderman!

Hope everyone had a great night, it was quite chilly last night. My sister and i took the kids out around the neighbourhood. We came back in 45mins later because it was so windy! Although, the kids did make a good hauling of candy =) 

I'm excited its November already. That means Christmas is right around the corner. This year i'm going to try to start my Christmas shopping early! haha... we'll see how that goes. Has anyone started their Christmas shopping yet?

thanks for stopping by!
