Dec. 4th and lots to say

I can't believe it is December 4th! I am slinging through the Christmas shopping list little by little. We have knocked off a few this year only getting the kids (which i don't really enjoy to be quite honest) so I should be done with my shopping pretty quick!

I wanted to post this before Turkey Day but totally forgot and to top it off forgot to take pictures of everyone on thanksgiving in order to put in my mini book..Yes I am a dork! I wanted to take a picture of everyone that day and then each page would be journaling on why I am grateful for them.

I love the cover. I made the flowers with this little diddy that my awesome friend Jodi sent me!
If you don't have one of these I suggest you run to your nearest Michaels or LSS and get yourself one or give it to your scrapbooker sister, friend, wife for Christmas. It is awesome! (what is it about that word that I love so much)
Back to the mini book. Did a little doodle for inside and then I will embellish and take those pictures and finish it up.
I made all the pages and cover in about an hour and a half. Super easy!

Here is another present I just received a few minutes ago. Terri just returned from Hawaii and in her travels once again goes to an unbelievable beach and it is nothing but sea glass. In fact, she tells us that the sand wasn't really sand in reality it was all sea glass. It was once a dumping station back in the day. I want to say WW2 but I might be wrong about that. Needless to say I was quite envious and pretty much not happy for her finds. Was in her office with Stephanie and was letting Terri know how much I was envious I might have even called her a rhyming word with witch. :)
I am happy for her but she has bottles of sea glass and I can count my sea glass on two hands. some of you may be thinking this is just weird why so into this sea glass thing. Well I didn't really get it until I found my very own sea glass. It is rare and some of it is just the hunt itself.
Anyhoo, back to my story. Are you tired of reading yet?
Terri walks into my office with this

She filled up a little box with some of her treasures. How flippin sweet is that!!!! This definitely made my day. It is not even Christmas yet and this might just be my favorite gift thus far!

One more thing...
If you have not visited this blog The Pioneer Woman I suggest that you do. She is a great writer, very witty.She calls her husband the Marlboro Man and if you remember him he just may well be the Marlboro man.She lives on a cattle farm and all that they do in their everyday life is so foreign to me. I love reading her blog. Her blog is a daily read for me. She is a farmers wife that was once a big city girl. She also has great gardening tips and wonderful recipes. I made these yesterday and then were pure goodness!

I believe that they are called French Breakfast Muffins. They are rolled in melted butter and then cinnamon sugar right out of the oven. To Die For! They would make a great neighbor gift in a basket with some coffee beans and mugs.
I am off to start designing some things for work. But before I go, for you local girls.
Saddleback Church is hosting for the first time a craft night. It is called

We are setting up the whole Refinery for just us crafters. We will have room for scrapbookers, knitters, quilters, etc. If you want to bring your Christmas cards and get them done do that.

Hey Miss Suezie, I found you :P ...your post reminded me of two things: how you were there fighting for creativity at Saddleback wayyyyy back when, and that the glass beach here is Woods Cove, Laguna Beach. But it's NOTHING like the real sea glass beach in Kaui. Merry Christmas to you and yours! xo
