December ~ Crafts, Cards, and Caring.....

Busy as usual and playing catch up on the blog. Yes, I'm alive and kickin' still.

As I write this post, I know many of you are well into the beginning of the mad rushes of shopping, making those Christmas goodies for teachers and children's classmates along with another long list of things to get done. Do remember to pick one day to make a memory for you and your family. Something simple and non stressful. I have chosen Dec. 8th which coincides with my Virtual Scrapbook Gathering Day. (More information, check out here.)
We will hope to have all the kids home and the grand-baby too! We are going to hang out, make some cookies, attend a cookie swap, have a nice peaceful dinner, and check out the Christmas lights in the neighborhood. Then I will make my nice peppermint hot cocoa. Trevor will really enjoy the season this year. He's 2, so those who are well rounded with children, you know what I mean.

I wish each of my blogger friends a wonderful and joyful December. My thoughts go to many who are struggling this year. So, Please be mindful of those who are having tough times, weather it be the loss of loved ones, financial issues, or health.
We never know what a person is going through or how they got there. But, we as caring people do know how to help. Give a hand up (not a hand out), be kind rather than a grump when the lines are long, or just show that bright smile, it may lift a persons heart.
Give Joy, Love, Kindness, and on going Blessings and Prayers to all. May each of you be filled with the Spirit and I pray that you all have a beautiful Christmas.

First our cards for this year.
Trying to use up all my paper stash for the big bundle of cards. Keeping this years clean and simple.
Have a few more to finish that are for those very special people in my life.
(Can't show those-too many follow my blog..LOL!)

Used CTMH Stamp sets and Card Stock matched with various papers.
