I FINALLY got to scrap this past weekend (and not at the house) for almost 11 hours!! Plus I got the dining room cleaned (well it was clean) and have all my scrapbooking stuff in there. So in the last few days I have gotten quite a few projects completed. And more to do!!

Before I post the new projects, I want to post this project that I made for Christmas presents. I made 10 of these. I'm not posting the recipe for these. However, if you want the details, please leave a comment or email me. These took quite awhile to make and put together, but they were worth it!!!

Awesome aren't they!?!?! Now, on to some new creativeness!
