Organized my scrapbook cabinet







I spent part of the day before yesterday organizing the scrapbook cabinet Jim built for me. I took a lot of stuff off of the top of the cabinet and then slowly reorganized it while putting most of it back up there because I didn't have anywhere else to put it.hehe Now I need to get the rest of my mess off of the dining room table .. so we can get back to a somewhat normal routine.:) Jimmy helped me to put the Christmas decorations back into boxes and placed back in their resting places in the garage the day before this. :) It's been a really busy week!!!
Happy New Year my friends!!!:)

Sanctuary - worship video with lyrics.wmv




Just as I woke up this morning I got this scripture verse....Romans 12:1
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Then immediately after..this song. I LOVE the way my Lord works in me!!! He will do the same for you if you let him.:)

Merry CHRISTmas to all!!

Show and Tell.:)

I have a display of bath items that are above my garden tub. I found these two pics..on the left...from Goodwill and they were only $1.50 a piece.Just PERFECT for my collection!!:)

I wanted to SHOW and TELL you about this towel. I spent a while looking for a "decorative" towel to display with the other bath items.I couldn't believe how expensive they were!! So...I decided to use some of the wider decorative ribbon from Dollar Tree and hot glue it to a plain ..off white towel. It is a towel that is only for display and not to be used and I did this probably a year ago and it is still holding up fine.I also decorated a couple of the matching wash cloths with the same ribbon and they are on display in the sink area. Just thought you might want to spruce up your bathroom for pennies.:) Literally.hehe Click on pic to get a closer look.!!

Christy decorated another box.This time it is a small pill box.HOW CUTE!! I LOVE it..too bad she gave it to her Daddy.LOL

Here is another card I made using some of the clipart and stamps I have collected .I added a small pocket to the inside for a gift card. :) This card is for my brother and it is okay to tell you cause he never comes to my blog.LOL

This is another card Christy and I made using collected elements and embellishments..etc. I designed the card and added the glitter etc.Christy did the wording etc on the sign.(it has a texture to it)I did the inside and found a perfect reindeer in my stuff.Gotta find it again before I can give proper credit to the artist.:) This card is for her new boyfriend..Josh..who says he loves to go hunting.hehe I should tell Christy to hide his gun and he can have fun hunting for it.LOL

Thanks for stopping in again and I wish you all a Merry CHRISTmas!:)

This is one of the favorite spots that Christy's cat LOVES! A bench under my bedroom window...where my bears reside.! :)

Been baking cookies:)

I tried something new yesterday.Rice Crispy treats with white and chocolate crisps.I melted the marshmallows(1 bag of mini's) in butter(3 tlbs.) and then added two cups white crispies then two cups chocolate crispies,1/2 c of choc chips and 1/2 cup butterscotch chips, and 3/4 c of chopped pecans.I really liked them.:)
This is a no bake cookie.Tastes like peanut butter fudge with chewy oatmeal.LOVE these too!!:) Got the recipe online. Make sure you get the one that has peanut butter in it.I made one last week that didn't and I didn't care for it as much.:)

These are our favorite so far.Mint chocolate cookies.MMMM.:) Just buy the bag of mints (shown in pic) and follow the directions on the back of package. You won't be sorry.:)

Thanks for stopping in!!:)

When I saw this winter kit ..I knew I would be able to use right away.:) Here is Alexzander in the limelight.hehe Such a CUTIE.:) I used the kit "Softly Christmas" from
  • Sweet Maple Designs
  • . I think it is still available and was in one of the Christmas blog trains. Maybe you even have it in your collections from this week?? I made the frames..and they won't be in the kit if you look for them.:)


    Okay..if you look at it closely..you will see a few stragglers from the photos.That will be fixed..in the near future..but I gotta get busy doing something besides sit at my puter for now.LOL

    Thanks for stopping in.:)
