Along with the relaxing family time, I got some knitting in, so that was exciting! I've pretty much used up 3 skeins of yarn in 2 days and make 3.5 projects. Yarn crafting is a great way to spend time and relax in the fall.
Today we put up the Christmas decorations and Leif took Ellie sledding. We ate leftovers. We listened to Christmas music. It was great.
And through it all, we have no pictures from the holiday. But it's okay. We got to spend time together as a family, and that's what I'm thankful for.

Played with a friend's Cricut cartridge for this one, a cartridge I probably won't get myself. I'm not sure I completely like this layout, but I do love the pictures, so for now it will have to do.

Just a wavy stitch with the teal thread that was already in my sewing machine did the job! It adds a little texture, too, which is always fun.

One of the pages I put together last month at a scrapbooking day at Susan Beth's house. I love these pictures of Leif and Ellie, and I got to use more of one of my backlogged Sweet Pea Scraps kits. I'm looking forward to scrapping with her again this month!

Another Technique Tuesday card. I am loving the Copic Markers! The best part about these cards is that they really take very few supplies - and I can use up some of my stash a little at a time! Inexpensive is good... =D

I decided it had been too long since I'd stamped, so I pulled out one of my favorite-but-rarely-used stamp sets and set out to make a card. I stamped the petals, then colored them with my Copic Markers, which, again, I rarely use, but love!! This particular card was a Thank You card to my friend Amber. It was fun to play with my stamps again. Oh, how I miss them! I love scrapbooking, but I was a stamper for so many years before that. There's just something fabulous about creating something beautiful out of a white piece of cardstock, some stamps, and some ink. I love it!
