Kid's Say the Darnest Things.

I must give you some background information before starting this story. Many years ago, when the kids were little, before they understood that they should say "excuse me" after burping, their dad and I started saying "God, bless you" after they burped. It was a silly, funny way to remind them to remember to excuse themselves.

I had the pleasure of Miss Bailey Boo's company this weekend. I had sneezed a couple of times and she knew to say something but wasn't sure what. I told her to say "God bless you" and of course, her version was "God bless you, Nana!" Later that day or maybe even the next day, she burped and out of habit, I said "God bless you." Bailey comes back with "No, Nana, that wasn't a God bless you, it was a burp!" Honest and funny too! Gotta love this kid!

Sunday Scrappin

I am doing a cross between Ali Edward's December Daily and Jessica Sprague's Holidays in Hand. I did something similar last year and am super excited about doing it again this year. I took ideas from Daily Digi's holiday planner and made it my own. Here is the title page and page 1 and 2 for November 26. I start the day after Thanksgiving since that is when I really start thinking about Christmas. The album will be 8 1/2" x 11".

My to-do's for next week are:
  1. Keep up with my December Daily.
  2. Enjoy the holiday season and spend time with the people I love.

Sunday Scrappin

I cannot believe how long it has been since I have posted on my blog. Sad thing is, I haven't been crafty much during that time either. But, I finally had a moment of inspiration and came up with something that is already making my life easier.

I crafted a holiday planner. I found this sweet spiral bound notebook at Michael's for $1.00!
Made two pockets for the front and back covers. Cut cardstock and patterned paper to fit the inside pages and created the labels in Photoshop and then printed them out. Stapled a folded piece of ribbon on each divider page and voila, I have a holiday planner.

My to-do list this week is just to craft something. I so want to craft but can't find the motivation to actually do. Maybe once my classes are over in early December I will get motivated.

Have a great Sunday!
