Wrapping up 2008...

I hope your holiday was wonderful. I'm enjoying catching up on all the blog posts. We've been having a magnificent time here. My sister and her family are still in town, so we have been very busy enjoying each others company and watching the kids play together. We've done so many things. Gone sledding, made snowmen, celebrated a birthday (my sister's), dressed up as princesses going to the royal ball.
Painted tea sets.

And crafted as much as we can. Crafting together is one of the treats of having my sister around. We made patchwork canvases with vintage wallpaper. I added the kids school pictures to mine.
I also scrapped a couple of holiday pages.


Next on the agenda for New Year's Eve is to work on a holiday album. Last year I made this FAMILY album while Laura was here.
Hope you're enjoying the last few days of 2008 and looking forward to a wonderful new year. I cannot wait to share some exciting news for a project I've been dreaming up. It involves lots of swaps for the new year and another blog!

It sounds like you've had a very full and fulfilling holiday. Me too. I love that feeling of ending a year with all kinds of delicious sparkle, and then being ready to burst into the new year :)
