Christmas anyone?

This past weekend I started digging out my Christmas scrapbooking stuff. My shipment from Studio Calico should be here early next week and with it will be my December Daily kit. I also discovered something awesome while out browsing in a few clothing stores this past weekend-holiday washi tape. I was in my glee. 5 whole rolls of it. So CUTE!

So, of course I went home and dug out the rest of my holiday stash! Turns out I have a TON of Christmas product left over from the last few years. I can't wait to include all of it with the kit contents, which look awesome! I mean look at all this stuff...

I did discover last year's December daily amidst the pile. I wasn't very good at keeping up with it last year. I actually dismantled it and re-made it as a 6*8 album in the early part of December because I didn't like what I had done. So, the album that was supposed to make it to New Year's eve only made it to Christmas Day. It's fine. I'm totally fine with it. I actually had to finish the cover so I finished it right then and there and it's now a completed project. This year I have a great little printer which I plan to have out and use for doing each day as they happen. More on that in another post though.

Spurned on by the Christmas product, I let my Christmas spirit soar and decided to use some of my stash to create Christmas cards. I know, I know. I'm probably nuts to start making them this early but the thought of getting them done is something that just weighs on my mind every year and I just wanted to get them done and out of the way.

Usually I just stick with one card but this year, in an effort to get rid of some stuff I used three different colors-not traditional Christmas colors either. There was lots of embossing and mass production but I managed to bang out 88 cards on Sunday afternoon/evening. I think that's a pretty good day's work if you ask me.

So, the Christmas spirit is gaining momentum-at least in my scrapbooking room. We'll have to wait until December until I can go full-blown Christmas Crazy!
