Friday was Jim's birthday and although he thought we'd stay home for dinner, Bella thought that wasn't very 'festive', so we wound up at Carraba's. The rest of the weekend was spent primarily on taking down all the Christmas decorations and getting the house back in order. I am always anxious to get the house decorated for Christmas, but once Christmas is over, I want the decorations down! Jim however, is never ready to see the decorations go down. We did manage to get most everything done, with the exception of the outside lights and wreaths. It was far too cold and too windy to go outside or to open the windows to pull the wreaths in.
And, the big news of the weekend was t hat I actually got into my scraproom and was able to get a two-page layout done! Here's the proof:
Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, but it is difficult to photograph . Now lest you think that I am that caught up, I must confess that the pictures are from last Christmas! Ha! But in my defense, I don't scrap chronologically. I have layouts done from Easter and June of '09, but I just got around to Christmas '08. Hopefully I'll be able to get back into a regular routine of scrapping and card making now that the holidays are over.
Hope everyone has a Blessed New Year!
