Not much blogging...

It's Christmas Eve day and this will be my last post of 2007.

Sorry - I haven't been posting much. It's all the "busy-ness" of getting ready for the holidays and our family vacation. I'm happy to say that the gifts are all wrapped and the stocking stuffers sorted out. The tree is "stuffed" with presents underneath it! This year we really cut back but you wouldn't know it looking at the tree.

Tonight we're off to friends for our annual Christmas Eve Dinner. 14 of us in total - including 8 teenagers!

We'll be spending a quiet Christmas Day with my mother-in-law at our house with a sumptuous Prime Rib dinner (with Yorkshire puddings!). We all got tired of turkey years ago and I actually cannot remember the last time we had a whole turkey dinner it's been so long.

Right after Christmas Day will come the packing for our family vacation to sunny (but not too warm) California. This will involve lots of comments like "I have nothing to wear/I have nothing that fits/I can't leave home without it/and I've packed too much" from everyone in the family!

This morning I got up early and tried on my bathing suit. It still fits with room for a few more truffles too!

I haven't been stamping or crafting much but I have been colouring here and there. I've got a little collection of stamped images that people have sent me over the last year and images that I have stamped on white card stock. I keep them all in a SU! snap case and I like to take out a few at at time to colour. A little bit here and there when I have a few minutes to sit and relax - I do enjoy a good cup of tea and a colour! So now I have a nice little stash of coloured images to use for quick cards.

Well that's all from me for this post. Check back in the new year and I'll let you know what Santa got me and hopefully I'll have lots of photos of "stuff" to show you!

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me your kind and generous comments!

Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
