can't think of a good title

So we'll just leave it as is.

Time just keeps ticking by. December already. Christmas chaos. My kids have told Santa what they want and I think I've got most of it covered. This is the first year that they both express definite wishes and it seems they kind of expect to get it too. I don't know what happened. In previous years they could care less and wanted it all to be a surprise. I have a feeling that this may be T's last year of believing in Santa. We will see. It will be so disappointing when he doesn't believe anymore. Kind of takes the magic away. At least A should have a few more years left in her.

The tree is up in our house. Kids helped decorate it so it's a funny mixture of hand made ornaments by the kids and bits and pieces of stuff from previous years. They each got to choose an ornament and T choose a glass angel that is now at the top of the tree with a light in it to make it glow all pretty. LOL. A choose a bright pink and purple fabric middle eastern looking ball with glitters and gems on it. Very girly. It's still a mystery to me how I produced such a girlie girl. I wanted to be a boy up until age 12 or so. Never played with dolls and absolutely despised barbies. Her favourite toys are her barbies....

Gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag voor mijn zusje Marjolein. Ik hoop dat je er een fantastische dag van maakt! (Happy birthday to my little sister Marjolein! Hope you have a fabulous day.)

I really thought I'd have more time to scrap once A went to school but it seems that 'spare' time gets easily taken up by other things. I am busier than ever.

Currently have the Lime Tart December Full Tart on my desk. Very fun kit. Also already have the January Half Tart in my possession already to keep me busy over the holidays.

Missed sharing my Scrapgal newsletter projects for November and December. tsk tsk tsk. You can see them below.
November theme 'gather': the first one is a mini album with pics of T at the beach. Bound with the 'bind it all' that KiwiScraps very kindly let me use . I think I want one for Christmas...

December theme 'entertain':

I am totally loving getting messy with Tim Holtz colour wash at the moment. Fantastic stuff and I wish I could have every colour. Just spray and see the effect. It's never the same and great to mix two or more together. Another current favourite at the moment is Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. How I'd love to get my hands on the black, lime and silver ones to compliment the 7 (!) colours I already have. Just can't resist the sparkle. Had to use those on all four layouts. He he. Can't go past the Buzz and Bloom chipboard either. It's finally for sale at Scrapgal after causing quite a stir when my layouts with it started appearing in the gallery. He he.
