People to see, places to go, things to do.....

So sorry I haven't been around. So much is happening that I just haven't been able to make time to blog (or stamp). I've been busy getting gifts finished up (mostly handmade) as the shipping cutoff is tomorrow for regular shipping through Canada Post. Most of our family live across the country, so it was a big job. Unfortunately, said family members tend to frequent my blog, so I can't share pictures of my projects until after Christmas.

Can I share more about what I've been up to? If you only came for the stamping pictures, this would be a good place to stop reading.
If you're still with me, look at what my awesome small group from our Church was able to donate. We sponsored two families and raised over $940. We were able to not only meet the needs of our Christmas families, but spoil them!! These are the two packages for our two families - I had such a great time shopping for them. I am so blessed to be part of such a generous and loving group.
In other news, our house is finally decorated completely. Our poor tree had been standing completely naked for more than a week. I keep telling everyone that I was waiting for this.....
It's our new fireplace!! The silly thing is, my husband is in the fireplace business, and we've been in this house for almost a year now. I am so looking forward to Christmas morning in front of the tree and the fireplace. Here's what our fireplace used to look like:

I think it's a big improvement! Plus we got rid of the shelving and the ugly blue carpet before we moved in.

Well if you've stuck with me this long - THANKS! I'll hopefully be back soon with some stamping stuff! Hope you have a great week!!
