Customizing your Christmas

Celebrating special moments with family and friends is one of my favorite things.  As always where there is a special occassion a gift or card often follows.  These are perfect opportunities to break out your creativity and come up with that special personalized treasure for your loved one. 

With Christmas just around the corner it's never to soon to start coming up with those custom gifts and cards.  But wait....your schedule is packed and you have no time to hand craft cards for each family member and don't forget all those friends?  Have no fear there are still ways to come up with a prim and polished customized card that will leave your recipient in aww.  Just turn to  This site provides many wonderful cards that you can match up with your favorite photos and click order.  In no time at all you will have a perfect batch of cards.  

For my card this year I'm going to take a picture of me in front of my new house after the first snow and use that on the front of my card.  Here are a few of the designs I'm might pick from this year. 

Which design would you use? Check them out here and let me know.

During the past few months I have traveled down Buyers road and purchased my first home.  With my focus on this new adventure taking place my blog and Etsy store have fallen behind. 

I'm settled in my new home now with a perfect space for making cards.
Look forward to new creations coming soon.

Digital Piece: Family Love

Loved this digital collage so much that I wanted to share with all of you.  Using just the basic Microsoft Office Publisher program, a couple of pics I enjoyed and searching the net for a few great quotes the piece below came tother. To give it a more professional touch I sent this image off to an online company and had it printed on a canvas.  It turned out so well and will be something that I will treasure forever.
