Stephanie was "sweet" enough (no pun intended) lol to have art group at her house to make gingerbread houses again this year, and I took lots of photos to share. It was really fun! First .... sharing a festive Christmas card done with Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Retro Christmas Papers and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesives. You can see the card and a complete supply list on the Crafty Power blog HERE.
Candies, Candies, Candies... and lots of them. Stephanie had things all set up for us to get started and her house looked so festive. She goes to alot of work for this.... but we're so thankful, because it's alot of fun.
It's fun to just enjoy the process and not worry about it being magazine worthy or anything. We just chatted and added candies and we talked. The one below is mine.
Jan had the cutest chimney made of rock candy.. Oh my gosh! Super fun roof too.
Paulas is so HAPPY :) I always love seeing how each person comes up with different unique ideas HUGE thanks to Steph and Jess for putting this all together!
So...... sorry it's been a few days since I've posted..but when I wasnt making gingerbread houses... I had my hands busy with these boys.......
It's funny because the night before I had just read something about how now days people just dont get involved anymore and how they expect that someone else will just deal with it, or it's not their problem.
Sometimes life gets so busy I'm afraid I do that. I don't want to. Not for little things like this.. or for bigger things either. But then again... it makes sense that it would be dogs that would make me not be able to look away. lol
Yes to took some time.. yes I lost a little sleep, yes I had to change some plans,yes I had to wrestle a couple of big dogs into my little car, yes I had to clean up a little doggy tinkle in the garage..but....
it was SO WORTH IT!
Pretty Christmas Papers, Friends, Gingerbread houses, dogs back home...... it's all good!
Thanks for letting me share :)
