Hey everyone and Happy New Year’s Eve! Can you believe 2012 is tomorrow??  It’s crazy how fast this year has flown by– and I am SO lucky to have gotten to share it with all of you! First, I wanted to show you the box I made for the earring holders I showed you yesterday.  I made this using a book box file within the Silhouette store by Lori Whitlock.  I also added the straps on the side, using another file by Lori Whitlock.   The paper I used is from the DCWV Tattered Time stack.   I used American Crafts card stock for the black box part and the straps.  I also punched holes in the edges using my Cropadile, and laced twine through it to tie it shut. I am a big fan of little twine bows!...

So…I’ve been promising many of you that I would start making some videos with my Silhouette Cameo- Ooooh…before I forget– some of you have also asked me–what is a Cameo? Well, Silhouette has been around awhile–with their SD machine- but, just this last fall (we are talking LATE October/Early November) they came out with a re-vamped machine that can cut 12×12 which was never possible with their SD machine. It does not use cartridges- only files and software. You can use their free software OR you can use Make the Cut or SCAL. (I am sure you’ve heard that crazy little term floating around…SVG….it can cut those too!) Anyway- this isn’t a traditional video of the project, but it does give you a look at the Silhouette software. And, I promise my next video will have me working with...

One last picture of Chex

before he goes back to the North Pole….or in storage–whichever is closer! I have to say, I am a little glad to see him go–I have been having trouble remembering to move him every single night–thankfully Mr. Pink and I worked as a team…and got the job done every night… It was fun to see the kids talk to him, and take the whole not touching him SO SERIOUSLY!  So, we will definitely do it again next year–as for changing my kids’ behavior– I noticed it a little bit…but, mostly my  kids were still my kids.  They are sweet most of the time, but have their ornery moments! Yep- he went bowling tonight!  Isn’t that the cutest? Ps.  I am SOO excited about Christmas morning at our house–I think it might just be possible that I am more excited...
