I have to admit that I am a huge procrastinator. It's one of my faults but at least I acknowledge it, right? HAHA I had made a bunch of Christmas cards at the retreat I went to in November and never posted any!!! Better late than never is what my mom always used to say so here are some of them! I think I ended up making 25-30 total and when I went to mail out my xmas cards, I was short and ended up using some boxed ones. Eek! I know but when you know a lot of people end up tossing them out, it's hard to justify putting in the time. Some of these were super fun to make and I was giddy at just how cute they came out. The snowglobe card was one I saw a lot of on SCS and just had to try it out. It was the first pattern I ever attempted. The snowball fight one was just adorable. I found these cute little white pompom things and attached them as snowballs. The "Ho!" card had to be one of my personal faves! She just cracks me up but was a PITA to color. I had to color in around those tiny polka dots. Now that was a chore!!! LOL I had found this awesome green garlandy looking ribbon that I wrapped around the tree. Well, onto the next holiday... Valentine's Day. MAYBE I'll post them before March ;)
I am so sorry I haven't been updating my blog! I have been sick for over two months and just not feeling well. I am ok, it's just a nasty cough/cold that is lingering and I wish it would just leave already!!! I do also have some good news to share. I found out I was pregnant 2-3 weeks before Thanksgiving and had such a hard time keeping my mouth shut!!! LOL I wanted to surprise my family since we'd all be together (my mom, dad, brother, Nana, Auntie, cousin, and of course my 13 yo son, the baby and my hubby - he's the only one that knew before. Well, him and a few close friends who I knew wouldn't blow my cover! hehe). We always go around the table saying what we are thankful for and when it was my turn I said I was thankful to not have to cook the meal (yuck!), my family, husband, two great kids... and soon to be a third. It was a little too quiet for a second so then I blurted out that I was pregnant and everyone started screaming and crying and there were a lot of "no way, no sir, OMG's". My mom, among others, was instantly in tears and hugging me! I made sure I sat next to her! HAHA It was awesome!!! I'm so glad I waited to tell them. I just wish I had gotten their responses on video but I think it would've been obvious something was going on. Hopefully the memory will last forever :) I hope all has been well on your ends and that your holidays were all wonderful.
