I do have the computer working again and just wanted to pop and wish you all a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
In the meantime I will post a couple of photos of some of my holiday decorations. I have the tree in our bedroom done and will get the big one up this weekend. I have already started some of my baking - got a pound cake made yesterday and made some fudge the day before. I will be cutting way back on baking but with everyone coming here at Christmas I have to have goodies to serve and my mom always looks forward to taking some home with her when they go back to Florida.
The first photo shows the HOHOHO that I got from Stampin' Up!. I don't have this piece finished yet but it is up. I'll post another when it is done. Need to do something about those dang clips. The 2nd photo is a close up of the Christmas tree in our bedroom, actually it is a photo of our cat Tom sleeping under the Christmas tree. The last photo is my newest piece for this year Santa, he moves and plays music and I just know the grands will love him when they see him.

I did this swap with some ladies on Paperartistsonline.com. We were to place 5 objects in a baggie and do 5 sets. Then were then sent to the other members who signed up for it. I just got my 5 back and had to show them to you. The scanner does not do them justice and I may have to take pictures so you can see them better. I had a ball doing this swap and can't wait to do the next one. The finished pieces are 4 x 4 and when you recieved the baggie you were to work on you had to incorporate all 5 items from the baggie. You could add anything else or alter the piece however you wanted. Aren't they just fantastic!!!

I had lots of leftover pieces after doing my snowflakes so I pulled out my Stampin' Up! Magnetic Movers & Shapers Ornament die and made some of them to go with my snowflakes. I even pulled out a small tree and hung my ornaments on it. These were fun to make and didn't take long.
