'Twas the night before Thanksgiving

...and boy am I tuckered out.
Over the last three days I have fought the Christmas tree and won, cleaned the house from top to bottom, thrown up the Christmas decorations and have all of my Thanksgiving dishes prepared.  Everything looks beautiful and smells delicious, but I look as though I've just returned from a battle zone: numerous scratches on the hands and arms via the tree tussle, bruises on my shins, a puncture wound on my left thumb (I didn't know you could actually STAB yourself with a ornament hook) and my sciatic is acting up.  And don't get me started on my aching shoulders :-/
But THANK YOU, Lord...I have so much to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving Eve!
I received my adorable December Daily tags from Chic Tags today.  I'm looking forward to getting my album completed before December 1st :)  I have several ideas for photos, so hopefully I can keep up on the documentation without falling too far behind.  

MY SCRAPBOOK NOOK
I created a couple of cute cards for my CARDS challenge this week over at My Scrapbook Nook.  This challenge is a PINSPO challenge.  What's Pinspo?  Pinterest combined with Inspiration :)  
Just hop on over to the blog (I have direct-linked the post above) to view the photos that I chose.
Here are my two samples using the November Nook Kit

And I'm not sure if I shared this Christmas card that I created last week or not.  My fellow DT member, Danni, created a thread on the Nook Forum just for our holiday greetings

I know that I'm not alone in saying that I'm so ready for the Nook Message Board to be back up and running!  I miss the everyday chit-chat. 

I HEART IPPITY
Another week with Ippity!  Sydnee asked that I make a container for her friend's birthday money and card, so I created this sweet little holder from a Maya Road tin.
I used Staz-On to stamp onto the sheer journal sheet, then colored in with permanent markers and a little glitter on top.

Time to get geared up for an 8 hour siesta.
Hope everyone has a fantastically blessed Thanksgiving.
Be safe, don't eat too much and I'll see you soon!
