Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas everyone, hope you are all having a wonderful time, with your family's

my girls came over this morning and enjoyed the time with them, I sure miss them being little on

Christmas morning.. about 2am on the 26th we are heading to New York to visit my Son and daughter-in-law

and the sweet baby, so excited I cant wait… this yr I didn’t get much craft supplies, except for some copic markers

I’m wishing now Christmas was a few weeks away, just because I didn’t get any Christmas crafts done, not even any cards

working 10 hrs day kills my craft time, when I get home I'm just to tired.. oh well I just start earlier next

Well I just want to pop in my blog to wish everyone a Merry Christmas..

Hugs and Love

Norma Jean


The Christmas tree and my Girls


My new Copic”s


Hubby and Me


My sweet Granddaughter!!

Hi Everyone, And Happy Wednesday, I love Wednesday’s for its half way thur the week and

WOYWW  My Desk continues to be a big mess, my craft room is now the room to put all

Christmas presents, I got some organized so I could walk in that room, Got to get some wrapping

paper so I can put the stuff under the tree , then hopefully clean the room..  I signed up for a

swap, not due until the end of Jan, but wanted to figure out what I wanted to do, so I don’t have to worry

about over Christmas, I haven't even made cards for Christmas yet.. that’s this weekend project.

well take a look at my mess, also a Christmas bracelet I made for fun

mini albums..  well any way I saw something in the December Scrapbooking ETC. magazine that I wanted

to try, I think it came out ok.. and it was pretty easy..

Happy Wednesday, just a few more days and I’ll be having a 3 day weekend, I love holiday’s when there is no work!!

Nothing new with me, I'm just in a crafty mood, but cant seem to get anything started, maybe because there is so much I

want to do and don't know where to start. I have a card started but if I get it finished in time will be another story

but since it is Wednesday, I just love the Julia's blog for WOYWW 

I actually got a lot of my ribbon on rolls hanging up so I cant actually see what I have, I'm hoping over this long weekend

I can clean my craft area, its truly a mess.. so here is my WOYWW for this week , can wait to visit yours..

Good Morning!!.. I’m doing this right before I leave for work… I love the WOYWW over at the

The Stamping Ground its come along way. am I'm so happy Julia does it every week even thou I don't do it every week

I love looking at others craft area’s . I have a set of Prismacolor markers I just love, but I'm slowing building my Copic markers because you can

find colors that blend so much better,  My desk is a mess.. Im asking hubby to make me some kind of shelve I can put all my markers in

so they are easy to get too.. since I have all three kinds of copic and prismacolor , need to make something that will fit them all.. thats what the

box is for.. got to figure out if that will work..

well Guess I will show you my Messy messy desk…
