I popped into the store yesterday (Unforgettable Memories) to drop off a couple more layouts using the new Reminisce Christmas line and Lynette commented on my circle layout. She figured she would never be able to do a layout with so much whitespace, BUT she said, everyone was commenting on it, and liking it. In fact, one woman bought all the product needed to make one of her own. I love that someone likes my layout enough to want to have one like it in their own album.
Also yesterday I dropped by the Post Office to drop off a couple parcels and pick up one. It was't a Xmas parcel like I was expecting. Instead it was a package from Inspired Blueprints. They are a new scrapbooking sketch site and I won their very first ever monthly prize last month. The package came all the way from Australia and had some really great product in it. Lots of felt trim and frames, gorgeous papers and 4 rubon sheets. I can't wait to dig in to it all and build a couple layouts.
Today I got a couple more parcels out (have the cousins taken care of) and Breanna, Duncan and I decorated the stairway. On one side I have all my 'manly' ornaments hanging in the garland. These are all fishing and/or outdoorsy themed... Hmmmm. I can see a gingerbread ornament one of the kids added while I wasn't looking.
On the other side I have my '12 days of Christmas' disney balls, though we're missing a couple that have broken over the last few years. Eventually I will have enough fishing ornaments to do all the stairs in one theme.
