The cutest gift ever

I'm always looking forward to the presents I get from my sister. I don't know how she does it but she always finds the cutest things. This year I got these cuties from her:

I don't know the word in English but these are used to put your glass on so that the table will stay clean

I adore this retro wallet :-)

Thanks, sis, for these wonderful gifts! You rock!!!!

Merry Christmas

I don't know if I'll be able to blog tomorrow so I want to start with wishing you all a Merry Christmas!!! I hope you'll have a wonderful day full of joy and happiness.

I made this christmas card. Took the picture last year and used it for this card. We are giving this to the clients in our pub.

My cat Baileys is not a big fan of snow. Since it has been snowing she didn't wanna go outside. Two days ago she sat at the window and 'asked' to go outside. You can see how she reacted on the next pics.

Please, can I come inside again????

Let it snow, let it snow, ...

Belgium is covered with snow!!! Since last Thursday we can enjoy this beautiful view. The first picture was taken on Friday morning. We went for a walk on Sunday and the other pics were taken then. Enjoy the beautiful winter scene

Is it snowing at your part of the world?

New challenge

Yes, I know, I'm a bit late but I can explain. The kids in my class have tests right before the Christmas holidays so I have lots of correction work. Then I need to write reports about their results and next week, the parents come over to school to discuss the results. You see, I don't have any free moments right now. Grrrrrrrr

This is the new challenge at

It's All About You or Me.....the challenge

Thank you for another fabulous Scrap and Stamp challenge! Now that the Christmas Holiday season is in full swing and we are hustling and bustling about to find the perfect gift for that someone special, we thought we would take a moment to share a little about what makes us special! And we definitely have a team full of special gals right here!

The challenge this week is "All About Me: With at least one stamp." If you are like me most of my scrapbook pages hold pictures of other people and their triumphs and stories. Very seldom do we get to see the person behind the camera and the face of all that special handwritten journaling. Now is your chance. We want you to do a page totally about you. It can be when you were little or big, about what makes you tick, heck we'll even take what makes you sick LOL We just want to know you and what better way than for you to take the opportunity to leave a little bit of you on a page.

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Say It With Letters! If you haven't been to the store be sure to stop by and check out all the wood letters, chipboard and more. Be sure to stop by the craft blog and say Hi!!

One lucky participant will receive an 8 inch Mixed letter spelling "Jolly" in our chunky and cute Swedish Fish lettering style. PLEASE NOTE YOU WILL RECEIVE UNFINISHED LETTERS. PHOTOS SHOWN ARE EXAMPLES OF WHAT YOU CAN CREATE. A $20.00 value.

So before you run off to create a fabulous layout for this weeks challenge be sure to check out the design teams wonderful creations!

This is my creation this week:

So, now all go and have a look at the other faboulous projects at
