12 April 2013



It's a good point in time to think about what you want accomplished by the 1st of December.  I know the  arrival of spring has many of you busy outdoors or at least anticipating it LOL  Make a list, ponder a bit on it and figure out what you can do when and make a plan.  Can you simplify?  Is there something you always leave so late that you regret the lack of time and then attention to detail?  Are there projects that you haven't done because you didn't leave time?  Is there a project you would like to see here?

As promised I am trying out a "link widget"!  But what are you supposed to post?  This is an easy one and will take only a minute or two from enjoying your springtime outdoors.  Ok Sandi, get to it!  Post a picture of your favourite Christmas themed project, one that you have already created.  It can be something that you have already shown, posted, entered in some other challenge etc. and it can be any type of project.  See I know how to do easy!   I will do a random draw for a Christmas themed prize and announce the winner on May 12th.  The prize will include your choice of collage sheets from My Artistic Adventures courtesy of Ms Heather!  Check out the one she did for gift bags!

Here is my "Roll Back the Clock" project.  It is one of the first "not a layout" pieces I did.  The picture is of my husband Bob sitting on Santa's lap at Woodward's Department Store (1949).  Still makes me smile and I am working on something similar for one of the girls.

I have not worked out all of the details of the "linky widget" yet..thought there would be thumbnail pics!  And I don't know how to delete mistakes...  Please do copy in the specific address of your project and not just the link to your blog.  We are all learning!


  1. What a great idea Sandi! My link is from one of my very first blog posts. It was fun to "go back in time" and look at those creations I made again. Thanks for the chance to win something although I would have added my link even without the incentive! :) Huge hugs,
