& she blogged

quite the blogging break ;)
Is everyone bustling and hustling now that the holiday season is in full force? I know we are around here. In fact, it hardly seems possible that "Elfie" is due to appear at any time. Elfie, of course, is our Elf on the Shelf. My 6 year old asked tonight why we didn't just name him "Elf". We ARE pretty creative, no? Of course he also asked if tomorrow I could show him how babies come out. NOPE. Not ready for THAT conversation! I quickly changed the subject to watching Olive the other Reindeer ;)

I had a sketch challenge up on the October Afternoon blog, brought to you by this INSANELY awesome ad:
I busted out the new Holiday Style line (LOVE!) and created my own version.

The whole post, including a beautiful card by fellow DT member Roree, can be found here.
I had a scrap weekend with some friends recently & during that crafty weekend I played around with some non-assignment layouts, like this
Lots of &&&&& ;) My boys are a different super hero, or cowboy, on almost a daily basis & I wouldn't have it any other way.
The stamp is an older Purple Onion one I believe. The ink is JBS stick candy, malted milk and seed packet.
I actually hand wrote some journaling, instead of using my trusty typewriter, and it felt good. I'm not really a fan of my handwriting, but I am certain my boys will not care and might actually like looking back at momma's handwriting.
Enjoy your day! I am planning to hook up my Silhouette Cameo and decorate for Christmas...and avoid any more "where do babies come from" inquires ;)
