Taking Time To Play.

Some people I know have a lot to say.  Not me.  I figure no one wants to hear my schedule.  Everyday.  My life's not too-terribly exciting.  And I kinda like it that way.  Don't get me wrong...I've got a LOT going on...but we ALL have a lot going on.  And really, I have no interest in re-hashing it all.  Where am I going with all this?  A daily post on my blog is just something I can't get done right now.  Until I reach a point where I can show you all something I've made everyday, I've got nothin'.

I do, however, have something today. 

Saturday I spent the 1st half of the day at my friend Cookie's house.  She recently moved to the sticks (for you locals...that's Norfolk, CT) with her hubby to a gorgeous, sprawling ranch with lots of woods.  Beautiful!  We spent the afternoon downstairs in her scrap room.  I was so excited to start my "December Daily - Christmas Countdown" mini album designed by Stephanie Ackerman

(Pay no attention to the Twix bar in the corner...)

All the ingredients to create a beautiful Christmas Countdown are included in her kit.  I changed mine up a bit to reflect my personal style and my pictures, but I love how she put the coordinating pieces all together.  I'll get back to this in a moment.

Here are some pics of Cookie's scrap room:

Organization is KEY to a great working space.

Her cardstock is color-coordinated.

She has everything she needs right at her fingertips.

And the island in the middle is great for spreading out.  I've got to get my act together & re-do my stiudio space!

As for my Christmas Countdown album, I worked on it again on Monday.  I'm finished thru page 19, including the cover.  I can't wait to get it finished this weekend.  Then, I'll be all ready to capture my December moments, one day at a time.  It's important to stop and celebrate the season each & everyday.  After Christmas, I'll print my photos and adhere them to my completed album.  And my memories of the season will be saved forever.  Take time this holiday season to remember the moments that matter.  Create a keepsake of your own and have it for many Christmases to come.  Wishing you & yours a very happy Thanksgiving holiday!
