Secret Santa????

I am participating in a Secret Santa gift exchange for 2 weeks with teenage girls and am looking for a Secret Santa verse I can put with the gifts.
Anybody have any ideas?

Still Re-organizing my craft room

I am still in the process of re-organizing my craft room once again. I have my punches hanging on curtain rods on the wall behind my door and a lot of mess all over the place. Today a local craft store had modular storage units similar but not hte same as these on for 55% off so I purchased a couple of 6 cube units to replace the ugly brown desk that doubled as a storage unit, come containers to fit inside 4 of the cubes and a couple of wall ribbon holder racks. Now I have to find the time to get in there and move things so I can put my new cube units in and go from there. These units are not as deep as the desk is so should give me a little more floor space to move around in. Can't wait to get things put away so I can start crafting in there again.

My Christmas Swap Card

I cased the card (sorry, not sure from who) but added the spirelli ornament using Stampin'Up's scallop circle punch and gold cording.

Happy Monday

My family will attest to the fact that I've been grumpy lately so I have decided I'm going to try really hard to be more positive. Have a wonderful Monday, whatevcr you are doing today!
I work at 3 but have some time before then to do some errands and have lunch with my daughter. Aaron can't come home for lunch because of volleyball practice but maybe I'll be able to catch him for coffee on Wednesday.

Reorganzing my craft room

I am in the middle of reorganizing my craft room once again and wonder why I ever started. I would like to start from scratch but that is not possible. My room is the size of a small bedroom with one large window and a closet. All of the walls are covered almost to the ceiling with stuff. There is too much in there so I can't find anything. I'm going to have to purge. I think I may donate a lot of things I don't use to my son's teacher who wants to start a card making club at lunchtime with her grade 7 and 8's.
First I cleared the punches from the over the door rack and put them on curtain rods hung on my wall behind the door. Now I can close the door and no one will know what is behind it unless I want them to.
Next I have to relocate some of the shelving that is sitting on my table taking up valuable workspace and find a spot for it all.
Its all taking much longer than I first anticipated but that seems like it is my current reality. I will show you my changes when I am happy with them but for now,
Happy crafting.

Remembrance Day

I just attended the Remembrance Day Ceremony at my children's school and as always was very moved by the young voices. The following video was one they showed.
