Almost Christmas :):):):):):):)

Hi all :):):):):)

I know we are all really busy with the hustle and the bustle of the season right now, so for all that stop by and visit, I want you to know that it is appreciated :):):):):):) 

So I am keeping up with my December Daily photos and have most of them printed out, and most likely will get them in my book this Friday as believe it or not... I have this FRIDAY FREE!!! No plans, no errands, stocking stuffers were bought yesterday... and that was the LAST thing on my list to get :):):):):):):)

So I wanted to share some photos from Sunday... seriously for some reason, this Sunday was just a busy busy busy day!! LOL! :):):):):):)   (I have more photos to share from this day... but one set of photos carries an entire story... so those will come later) :):):):):):)

Brookie and I (mostly her!) made a spice cake for dessert :):):):):)




Then Brookie lost her first tooth (not in the cake, I promise! LOL!)  YAY!!! :):):):):):):)


And Monday morning the tooth fairy had left her $5.00!! :):):):):):) (Forgive her glazed over look here... she had just woken up! LOL) :):):):)


And last week, Lily Bee was having a warehouse sale... $70 worth of goodies for $20!! I was sooooooooooo on that one!! I love Lily Bee!! So my package got here last night, and I still had a few more Christmas cards to make for my co-workers, so I whipped these Clean and Simple (CAS) cards up last night :):):) I used Lily Bee papers, rub ons and tags from 3indypapir.no :):):):):):):):)


I have got to say... Lily Bee's rub ons are some of the BEST in the industry... they are soooooooo easy to apply! :):):):):)







Thanks so much for stopping by!! I appreciate it!! And I hope EVERYONE has a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! :):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. Good Morning Julie Sweetie...
    I LOVE the new you. Your hair is just gorgeous and what a way to end this year and start out the new one. I LOVE it. You look gorgeous darling, just gorgeous.

    Look at little Brookie. Her first tooth? WOW $5.00? Inflation right? I think I got 10 cents for mine.

    Love the apron and that she too likes to bake. It is so nice to start young. That smile with the little tooth gone is priceless.

    Hope you and the family have a wonderful holiday. Again, you are beautiful. Lots of love, Sherry

  15. What cute pix! ! Love that you captured her lost tooth and then the photo with her earnings from the TF! The pix of you two baking will be cherished forever! Yor cards are super cute! You were on a roll girl! They turned out fab! The deal looked great but I bought a ton of Making Memories stuff a few weeks back when the sale was in effect so hubby would be unhappy with more scrapbooking packages. I bought lots of the medallions for my daughters sweet sixteen for under a dollar. I am living through your posts on the lily bee box! :-)

  25. I get that glazed over look around money too.....LOL. I'm not letting Jesse near my blog because the Tn tooth fairy only paid 3 bucks.....lol. He;ll want to hunt her down.....its bad enough that after he lost his first tooth he stole one of his brothers teeth....um, he had lost it....lol...and put it under his pillow to try to get money. Kids!!! Enjoy your Christmas and your free day....I don;t know what those are but they sound nice.....lol

  35. OH my goodness the tooth fair must be cashing in a lot of those gold teeth. $5.00 is a long way from the .10 I got as a kid. Heeeeee Heeeeee. I love the glazed over look. I think I might go pull a few teeth. I need so carfting cash. LOL
    Your cards are great. I did an amazing job with the rub ons. I stay away from them because I don't do a very good job with them. Love the vintage cards.

  36. Oh my gosh--5 dollars from the tooth fairy!!! That is so awesome--Brookie must be so excited!!!

    And I adore what you created---those are totally adorable!!! They are sooo professional--wow!!

  40. Heeeeheheheheheeee.... OMG Julie - you had me in stitches because I read 'space cake' instead of 'spice cake'.... and then I saw that glazed look Brookie has in that photo... OK, OK, I read your post TWICE and I understand it's a neat and decent cake, I'm sure. Enjoy, enjoy!
