LITTLE SCRAP OF HEAVEN
.....Where my thoughts and Creativity flows free

I had joked around..........

I had joked around with Nadia that my December 1st page for the December Daily would be reminiscent of Bob Barker and The Price is Right...... what I was hinting at was that everyone in the audience would hope and pray they would be picked, BUT if they were picked they would all cross their fingers that they would here him say................

You have a Chance to win-- A NEW CAR.............

Well......I didn't get to go on the Price is Right and win a new car but I did pick him up December 1st !! 

For those that know me personally I know you are very excited for me and that I will not be driving my 1986 Toyota Cressida anymore!  Not that I didn't love the car, but it was time to move on from the fix and repair scene!  You see we paid off our Van 2 years ago and I didn't want another car payment until my Jeep was paid off so I gave the Jeep to my husband to drive, we sold the minivan and I drove the 1986 Toyota his brother had bought brand new in 1986 to not have another car payment.  The Jeep's final payment is in January and the car's first payment is in January so it's out with the 1 and in with the next........... I wanted a 2011 Hyundai Elantra with Nav, but the rates for new are lower than used :(  I was buying the RIO and my husband threw a fit it was too small so I ended up with a 2013 Optima with UVO, Satellite Radio and some other cool options.  I would really have liked the RIO with the better gas mileage but this is like driving a cloud!  I need a better picture though!!!  
 It says Hello and Goodbye!!
              I love the Bluetooth for the phone!  It's crystal clear and a lot of fun to catch up with my long distance family on my way home........

Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Well, the season came and went so fast and I did not have time to even make 1 Christmas card.  I feel very sad about that and I know I have let my friends and family down yet again.  :(  I will be very glad to be back to 1 job this year and have time again for the little things that really mean the most to me and my family.  I want to clean my house nightly and not a mad dash the two nights a week I am home, make dinner more often, read books again and take walks with my dogs!  

I did squeeze in some homemade earrings for some of my close co-workers/friends and my son's girlfriend and my kids.  This is a sample of some of my work
  I am very pleased with the way they turned out!  I have all my pages for the December Daily done and some of the pictures are printed and some of the words have also been printed but the book has not been put together.  I am going on a Scrapbooking Weekend the 18th-21st of January and if I have not finished before this weekend comes I will be finishing it during the retreat!
