What the heck is WOYWW? Head on over to The Stamping Ground to find out! I actually managed to take a shot this week of my latest project. I'm making my family members rice packs that heat up in the microwave. :) I don't know if I'll get them all finished, but I'm at least making one each for my brother and his girlfriend who were recently in a car accident. Thank the Lord that neither was injured seriously, but I'm sure they'll find themselves a bit achy in the upcoming weeks.

Here are some recent scrapbooking layouts I've done. Credits for supplies used are over my Sweet Shoppe Gallery (link in side bar). I'm working for a 40% off coupon in their monthly portfolio challenge... then I'm going on a SHOPPING SPREE in there (well...as much as one as a poor grad student can reasonably afford). PEACE and LOVE to all of you.... and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Well I'm off to rounds, and then I'm picking up hopefully 2 dogs that need to be delivered to their new homes (7 hours from here)! I LOVE finding homes for dogs!

Very smart job on the rice packs as gifts. I just might whip a couple of those up now that you suggested it. Do you add any herbs or just rice? You've got some great art going on here...and anybody who rescues dogs is a hero in my book too!

Charlene said...

I just made those packs for our family as well! Glad everyone was ok. Lovely layouts!

Beautiful home made gifts, put some lavender buds in them too to make them smell nicely when they're heated. Love the LO's, especially those crazy looking Alpaca's!!

Have a great Christmas,

Those rice packs are a great idea! Hope u were able to get as many as u wanted done.... Your layouts are super! Digital? I haven't ventured there yet but how neat and tidy I imagine my workspace would be and how fat my scrapbooks would become if I crossed over! Happy Holidays and thanks for popping by.... *smile*

Love those rice packs, I use one all the time but never thought of making them! Great LO's too, I haven't actually scrapped properly for ages.
Merry Christmas to You and Yours, Annette #35
