Thinking of you snails

Originally uploaded by Heavenly Blessed

I can’t believe I havent posted since the 6th, my apologes!! Please be sure to check out Limelight Papercrafts. They are still doing the 12 days of Christmas, lots of sale items and lots of give aways….make sure you check it out.

Stampin Up has sent out the retired list. Very excited about that. I don’t know how to attach forms or I would. It’s a great time where they get rid of lots of favs we all have to have, but then they come out with lots of favs we have to have! Torn between too…

Today I decided to use this thinking of you card I made with the snails. I feel very SLOW and STEADY today, so why not use a card with snails….LOL.

Lots has been going on around here and I have been up since 2 am. I hope everyone has a blessed day….it’s raining hear and I am looking forward to a nap while the little ones sleep.

OHHH- We went to a midwife appointment this am….we listened to the heartbeat and heard a nice, good heartbeat…..WHAT A HUGE PRAISE!!!!! It truly made our day and turns emotions we have been having to nothing but JOY!



6th Day of Christmas and more….

December 6, 2008

Hello!! sorry I didn’t post yesterday, I got on to post last night and wordpress has updated their dashboard and I have no idea how to use any of it :). Usually I am all for changes, but last night not so much! I barely understand how to post anyway, now you change it and I am clueless all over again.

So, non the less I didn’t get anything posted, but there is lots going on! I want to play a game from yesterday just because it was fun….so, let me give you the scoop for today and last night :).

Limelight is having a game as well as a project presented today, so check out Mandy blog here. It will tell you what they had to create as well as where to go for the 6th day of Christmas (they are still playing the 12 days of christmas). It’s Bingo today!! Fun stuff. Their containers they had to design are SO awesome and there are lots cookie receipes to try!!

The other game I thought was fun was Fill In Friday- Jessica had this on her blog here. Something else I saw on Mandy’s blog and thought it was fun, So here is my go at it:

1. Snow is something we hope to get this winter!

2. I’m looking forward to celebrating Jesus’ birthday with our little ones as a family.

3. Anthony is the best husband ever!

4. One of my favorite old tv shows is Little House on the Praire.

5. I’m done with …would love to say laundry, but I have like 10 loads to do! LOL.

6. The most enjoyable thing around the holidays is watching the children learn so much about the birth of Christ and the true meaning of Christmas….they are just in awe of it and it’s so precious to watch.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to (past tense remember I needed to post this Friday) Family Fusion at church (it’s a fun thing at our church where the school age children bring their family to learn about the virtue they will learn for the month. It’s always a fun time for everyone), tomorrow my plans include visiting with Anthony’s family- his brother and his family are coming in from West Virginia and Sunday, I want to relax and enjoy the day of rest!!

Cute huh?! Anyway, I think that is about it for me here! I do have a little story if you want to keep reading about my oldest daughter. She came home last Sunday telling us she had to make an ornament and bring it to Family Reunion (she always gets that word confused with fusion because it’s hard….she is 5 LOL)….we asked her why and what for and she wasn’t sure, but she knows that her teacher told her that. Well, we forgot about it and come Thursday night I told her about it coming up and she said “Oh no mom, we have to make a glass ornament”….I said “we do are you sure”….my wonderful and persistent daughter insisted I email someone to find out. I emailed a friend that works with the little ones and she didn’t hear about it, so I told my daughter that and she said “email Miss Wendy (children director) she knwos everything”….so I did per my persistent daughter and come to find out SHE WAS RIGHT!! She was so proud of her being faithful, basically the teachers forgot to relay the message in the 2nd service and to everyone as a reminder becasue the phone systems at church broke, so it didn’t get very far, but becuase she was so faithful to remember she could still make one. Well, OF COARSE she wanted to! So we made this super cute snowman ornament. She was so proud and she got to put it on the tree at church and help out with a game for being so faithful and listening so well. She was thrilled!

We were so proud of her, that girl really does remember everything and she is very persistent, I guess it will be a good quality as she gets older! I was going to post a picture of her ornament but our battery is dead in the camera. So we are going to make another one and take a picture of it to show you guys this weekend :). Watch for it, She is way to happy about it!!

OK, if you got thsi far great. have a blessed day!!

On the 2nd Day Of Christmas….

I do think I will be singing this song now for the rest of the month…LOL!

OK, so for Limelight’s 2nd Day of Christmas fun they have another challenge going on at Lee’s Blog. Check it out here. She is doing a challenge using a beautiful picture of her yard….I wish we could see just snow falling….check it out and look how beautiful the white is!

So this is the card I designed for her challenge, I wanted a light grey color cardstock, but I don’t have one, so I decided to use silver. I also wanted something a bit more “white” for the trees, but the best I could do is some white shimmery glitter purchased from Limelight. The rest of the products I used this time are from Stampin Up.

I hope everyone stays warm today, I am off to try to get some things done around the house and play with the little ones. My daughter (the 2 year old daughter) said “mommy I like the christmas trees…I like it”. So at least this card got my little ones stamp of approval! LOL


On the 1st Day of Christmas….

Limelight Papercrafts is doing the 12 days of Christmas. It started yesterday with day 1. I am a little behind on posting because I wasn’t feeling well last night. The baby is now sleeping in my craft room so once she is asleep (8pm) my work/play day is over! 😦 Sad stuff, but that is OK. Anyway, to check out the 12 days of Christmas, click here on Mandy’s Blog.

For Day 1, Lisa was the host of a fabulous challenge. Check the challenge out here.

Here is my card. She gave instructions for this fabulous ribbon bow/thing and I had to try it out. It looked so simple and it was! Thanks for sharing Lisa! It was great, anyway, very sweet and simple using a bird and a tree. If you can see there is a bird hiding in the tree…he is a boy bird peaking on miss girl bird….well, really they are chicks but chicks are birds right?! LOL I can’t decide is the boy bird is sweet or creapy….LOL but non the less it was a bright idea I had yesterday and for any idea yesterday I was grateful! LOL

This card is using Just Johanna stamps that I purchased at Limelight. the ribbon and paper are from there as well. The green paper is Stampin Up Always Artichoke.

Hope everyone has a great day!! Off to check out the 2nd Day of CHristmas and try to stay caught up!
