        the kit she chose is not TLP, it's old one by a retired designer I used to CT for.

      The snow is thawing, and the kids were all back in school today.

        We're supposed to get a couple of inches tonight and tomorrow. Not happy about it, but at least I don't have to go anywhere.

      Time to write in those Christmas cards I've been busy making. I much prefer making them than writing in them.

        I just got my printed one back. So I am right there with you. However, mine are all digital, including the printed labels. I do write a Christmas letter though.

      oh what to put in those advent calendar pockets (non foodstuffs)
      1. Tree City

        Beads, matchbox cars, a few LEGO pieces (there are even tutorials for small sets: I put a few in my DD's one year so she could build a little Christmas tree and an ornament), a small notepad, a dime, a quarter, small craft supplies so that they could use 2 or 3 day's worth to "make" something. A bookmark or a book. A yo yo, top, or other small toy.

      feeling emotional - just got a letter from the school. They've had my son assessed for dyslexia, and he's been diagnosed with it.

        As hard as the news might feel, at least now you know and like Anne said, steps can be taken to help him overcome it. {{{hugs}}}

        I say make the Christmas Presents... after you make them if there is glitter r anything like that, you would have to re clean, so make the Christmas presents first :) Sorta like eating dessert first :) do the enjoyable stuff.. there is always time to clean later !

        i would say statistically i clean on about 90+% of the days in the year, christmas stuff can be claimed on a relatively small portion of days so i would always claim them where possible :D

      I'm pleased the little one got bored of sewing, so I could shift the machine out the way and get the laptop back out to scrap.

        sounds like there's competition for desk space at your place! (life clutter like school notes has taken over mine, really needs a clean but i'm glad the laptop takes up less space than all my old paper scrapping stuff #yayfordigi ;) happy scrapping

    I'm mum to 3 children, two of whom have special needs. My hobbies are art, paper crafting and sewing - well anything remotely creative that I can get my hands on and have the time/space to do really.

    I'm primarily a digi scrapper, but sometimes do hybrid for mini albums and gifts. My favourite part of scrapbooking is to tell stories. My husband is an avid photographer, and I like adding personality and character information to them through scrapbooking. I like including quotes of what my children said, or some of the amusing things they did at a location or event.
