These are the April, May, June and July pages for the calendar that I made for my Father-in Law for Christmas. It was really hard to condense a years worth of activities into 12 pages. There are many things missing but alas what is a girl to do?

OK. It is midnightish and I am finally done stamping the months and the dates as well as creating my layouts for the 12x12 calender I am working on as a Christmas Gift. I still have to assemble it but that won't take long. These are the first 3 layouts. I will post more as the days go by.

I know I have been lax in my blogging lately and I am sorry. I have been busy directing our Sunday School Christmas play/program for the last 6 weeks and have not had the time I wanted for all the other things that bring me joy. The play was Sunday night and was a success. The children were exceptional and the adults were wonderful! I had a great cast. The Sunday School gifted me with a beautiful Christmas arrangement for my hard work and the children gifted me with a lovely bouquet. I was very touched, it is always nice to be thanked for your hard work and willingness to give of your time. With that being said I found my Christmas Spirit this weekend. Our Pastor has been speaking on making time for Christ this season and I focused my program on that same theme and as I thought about his message and watched our play I realized that in my busyness I had not made the time to put Christ in the center of my Christmas. I was too busy trying to be perfect, too busy with my children, too busy with my husband, too busy with my clients and their hair needs and yes I was even too busy with my church. I hadn't taken the time to be thankful and grateful for the gift that was given to all of us ....the reason we have Christmas....Jesus Christ our Savior. I reevaluated my motives and my wants and needs and busyness, I found my center again and finally have a smile and a gladness for this Christmas season, a purpose as to why I am Celebrating Christmas.

If you are anything like me you have a container or two full of odds and sods of paper. The dilemma for me is always what am I to do with them? I was in JSI the other day and saw a paper bag album that they had done and thought to myself what a great way to use up leftovers but what a great little gift to give someone. They are quick to do and lots of fun.
