Very excited that once this post is published I will have made it one day longer with December Daily blog posts than last year. I PRAY to keep posting this week even though it is set to be an insanely BUSY week with 34 orders left to make and get out the door including 22 personalized sweatshirts and 66 headbands. I can do it. I can do it. I can do it.
Day Eleven is the first of Madison's 13th birthday celebrations at my Mom's (Mimi) with the Murphy four. It is very loud when we are all together, very loud. The kids are running and screaming with Tripp trailing not far behind them.
Ali Edwards sweet photo journaling overlay printed on vellum used with some Studio Calico magical stars in the back...sewn up so they don't come out. Picture is a little crappy but I am good with that. Tim Holtz typed words on the front.
A sweet picture of the cousins together on the back. I used American Crafts silver letters sewn on the front and a Tim Holtz typed together. Love the confetti stars on the back of the vellum.
The Bailey 2013 Christmas Card FINALLY arrived today and I do love it. I loved having last years Christmas Card in there and will love looking back on this year to see this one. Thank you Ali Edwards for the great idea!
A little confetti pocket with Studio Calico magical Starbursts. A Christmas card I had saved from 5 years ago because I loved it finally made it's way into December Daily. I just LOVE that mitten. A little journaling with a B for Bailey and then the thank you button that was included with an Evalicious order from last year. I saved it hoping I could use that sweet little button card and it turns out today was the day, adorned with the #12 from Studio Calico I love it!
Celebrating Madison one more time with the Bailey side of of the family. She wanted a candy cake (the one with the kit kats and m&m's everyone makes) but G's allergy to peanuts doesn't allow it so I came up with this chocolate cake, thin layer of white frosting, Hershey's Cookies & Cream bars on the outside and Oreos crumbled on top.
Vellum layer with a stitched box, American Crafts gold numbers, Studio Calico Wood Veneer heart and some journaling.
The picture below was take many days ago when A and T went out in the woods to set up his trail cam. Aaron found it Friday when he took down his trail cam. It just had to be used...perfectly perfect capture of a boy and his bear.
American Crafts letters and a Studio Calico Wood Veneer Star. Simple. Sweet. Love.
