Christmas is a comin'

I was feeling down in the dumps and decided to play with my crafts goodies [it always makes me smile at the mess I get into - yes Mum I did tidy up!!!!!]  Hmmmm 55 years old and still being told off - your always a wee one to your parents.

Anyway all of a sudden I started to sing Joy to the World, let Earth receive her King.  I just love the meaning of Christmas, it should be all year round, not the bustle and shoving, and greetin' of folks but the love, the kindness and the sharing.  Jesus is so good we need to spend time with Him more, [talking to myself here as well] cause His love gives you peace.  Keeps me sane as well!  Ok so as sane as I will ever get!!!!!

So made a stationery box, as usual when I make something new it goes pear shaped [what I call artistic creativity] cause there are no mistakes in crafting - only new ideas, this time though I cut the tip of my finger aaargh and guess what blood drops went onto the card, oh the joys of designer paper to cover it up.  I will keep this one for myself unless Mum wants it!

Please excuse the photography, my main light bulb went as as I have vertigo will have to persuade someone to come and put one in!  hint hint Tommy, and you can see my laptop.  Anyway used the two lamps on my desk.

Stampin' up!'s
