52 Card Scrap Up & More

This is the first week I have not posted my card for 52 Card Scrap Up on Friday. It's just been one of those weeks. I'm not getting everything done that I want to get done....and you know what, it's okay. This holiday season, my goal is to be less stressed. I'm trying to finish up my shopping this week. I want to wrap presents, mail packages and get decorations up early this year so that I can really just enjoy the season. I know it's ambitious, but it's the plan. Here's to a happy December and a stress less holiday season!

This week's prompt, given by Jessie, was "your favorite autumn beverage." I'm a big fan of fun drinks, especially those that arrive during the holiday season and I've listed a few on the back of the card. I've been using up scraps on all of my cards so far and am having fun digging through my stash for things I've seemingly forgotten about or bits of papers and lonely little embellishment leftovers....hence the old KI Memories tag. Here's the front of the card:


Here's the back:


So far this weekend has consisted of lots of cleaning and laundry, billing and other work related paperwork, credit card and bank account monitoring (this will continue for sometime I think, as I do not believe the credit card representatives and their promises anymore), time with Shawn formating his old laptop into my "new" laptop, unpacking of Christmas goodies and attempts at craftiness. It rained all day Friday and most of Saturday, so I wanted to root myself in the house and enjoy some lounging around with crafts and movies and hot chocolate. Too bad I had to leave on both days to drive around town and go see my kiddos for work! I did manage to unpack some of my Christmas goodies. I love rediscovering the decorations and things that I have carefully packed away in boxes most of the year. Since we will get a live Christmas tree, I will probably wait another week before I get to pull out the rest of the decorations and ornaments. I'm thinking of buying a smaller artificial tree to put up in our bedroom this year. That way I can enjoy Christmas in my house even more! Next week's 52 Card prompt from Andrea is "Your favorite Christmas decoration" so I will spend the week deciding what I enjoy most...my table full of little trees and my funky little snowmen are tops of the list right now.

I also have ambitions for all this crafting and am wanting to use up some of my kit stash before the new year. Too bad my scrappy mojo doesn't seem to be on the same page. I keep looking at stuff in my stash and moving things around, but not much creating has taken place. I did however work on this little mini for Ms. Andrea who won it on my blog months ago when I did the "Pay It Forward" challenge. I'm still planning something fun for Jill, my other winner and hope to mail hers out by the end of the year. Andrea, yours should be on it's merry little way to you by the end of the week. Here's a little sneaky for you.

Oh I'm so in for a fabulous treat, I can tell!! So excited for this happy mail to arrive my friend!

And your weekend sounded wonderful, even if the creative spark never happened ... it is okay to not be creative every now and then ;). Plus I'm glad you were late on a card now too ... then I don't feel like as big of a slacker, LOL.

Hope your week is going well and I can't wait to see pictures of where all these Christmas goodies (you've been making and talking about) show up in your house.
