I can't believe it's Christmas in six days. My list of things to do gets longer and the days seem like they are getting shorter. The only reason I'm sitting down to write this is; yes I am crazy, I'm waiting for a coat of paint to dry so I can put on another coat. My husband and son were moving a mattress down our stairs last month and because it was such a tight squeeze on our curved staircase, they put a hole in our drywall. It's one of those little jobs that you totally ignore until the very last minute and my husband has been threatening to paint his patch work if I don't. I let my husband paint once, never again! I was pregnant with our second child so I couldn't paint our son's bedroom.... my husband painted the entire room during half-time on a football game he was watching. Unfortunately, most of the paint didn't end up on the walls. There have been a few times where he's tried to sneak in some touch ups in places, but the tell tale signs of paint everywhere didn't go unnoticed. So, here I am trying to get this done, as our family Christmas dinner is at our house.
I'm not supposed to be doing things like this right now; as just because my life isn't busy enough, I had some minor surgery last week on my arm. Thank goodness it's not on my writing hand! It's amazing what you can do with one arm!
I have help arriving today though, my oldest son Reece, is coming home for Christmas from Australia! He hasn't been home for over two years, so we are looking forward to his visit. Typical Canadian, he's already scheduled to play in a hockey game on Saturday!
Some other really exciting news in our family, our daughter Cassandra was chosen as a contestant on the reality show, "Fashion Star"on NBC. It's already been filmed, everything was top secret, so it's been a big surprise for everyone. Can't wait to watch the show starting March 8th to cheer her on! She's not allowed to say anything about the show, so it will be nerve wracking to see how far she makes it.
That's a little bit of my busy life, I'm sure you all trying to check off your lists too! But back to scrapbooking, here's a layout I did for Carta Bella Paper, using their Winter Fun collection:
I took one of their coordinating cardstock papers and lightly stamped snowflakes (Tim Holtz snowflake stamps) with white paint. Just be adding some stickers, hand cut paper and a diecut snowflake, and a photo, my layout was done!
Back to my painting, have a great day!
