I guess you could say my kids are well loved but geez! Next year I'm going to be more diligent on getting toys given away before Christmas.
Other than the toy explosion it was a great Christmas. I got an AC Moore gift certificate and Ali Edwards book. My friends had gotten me some scrap themed gifts as well. And of course I got other gifts not related to scrapping.
I've signed up for the Stacy Julian class on the Big Picture website (sorry haven't learned how to link yet) Sounds like it will be fun.
Sophia posted the following challenge so I thought I'd play along. I really want to start blogging more.
