Hey there! Guess what? Christmas is THREE WEEKS from today!!

When did that happen? I am apparently very behind on my shopping and the house decorating isn't finished in all the rooms!

Yikes. Maybe I need a TO DO list and a picture of it, to boot!

How are you on your shopping and decorating? And baking and card making!??!! I hope you're in better shape than me.

What's your focus - and focal point - today?


That's QUEEN Paper Peep to you!

Took pics of the sunshine and screen caps of the warm weather. I keep thinking that my page title will be "Winter Wonderland? Not Yet." We haven't worn coats yet in the month of December - love it!

Why, YES!, I am a princess.

Another pea who noticed the outdoors today.

I took an early morning walk and shot lots of sunshine/bare tree limbs/geometric natural shapes for my DD today.

Thanks for the thread.

Today was a crazy busy day and I never even got a photo. And it is dark. I'm thinking that either I'll take a photo at gymnastics class tonight (my daughter is in the group and I'm one of the coaches), taking photos of Christmas lights on the way (maybe), or just inserting a favourite Christmas baked good photo/recipe.

If taking a photo at the gym fails, at least I have a back up plan.

The only thing that resembles a scrapping focal point for me today is WEDDING INVITATIONS. I am doing invites, rsvps, and thank you cards for a wedding in March. Need these things delivered to the bride by Jan 1.

I am hoping to have them done *this week* so I can have it over and I can enjoy this season.

I don't remember where on Twitter, but someone mentioned today was 'national cookie day'? So, yes, baking cookies in the works for later today.

I have to work on Christmas cards, cleaning house, and getting a classroom party planned this week.

Kids get out of school at 1 today. We might be able to get our tree today. If so, that will definitely be my photo of the day. My backup photo may be my Starbucks cup. Just have to see what the day holds.

My focus for the day is putting out the Christmas decorations.

Well this is my first year doing DD and I am doing mine a little different from most. Mine started the day after Thanksgiving and will go through New Years and not really a daily thing. I am calling mine "Christmas Memories 2012" and will include everything during that time. So far I have documented:
Black Friday Shopping
Getting all the Christmas decor out of storage
Going to tree farm to pick out tree
Decorating Tree
Tree decorated
More Shopping with middle daughter
Coming home to my front steps being blocked with 5 big packages from cyber Monday sales

and today I am wrapping some gifts so I will take a pic of that!

Hi, I pretty much have my decorating done, but not much shopping done yet. I did a little shopping on line last night and picked a few things up today at lunch.

My picture today will be my mantle decorated (I have a few decorated things I want in my album-will take pictures on days I don't have much going on).

I also am doing my DD from Thanksgiving to New Years. Good idea to call it Christmas memories 2012. I have take pictures of Thanksgiving, going to a concert, getting all of the Christmas stuff out of shed, etc. before
December 1.

Today I have a final class at my kids' school and they are having a small graduation and potluck. So there will be pictures of that.

I thought I had decided on what album type I'm doing, but now I'm not so sure..... so I have to sit down and figure this out lol

I started to teach myself how it knit during my lunch break at work. So I snapped a photo on my phone and will use that, along with story of a friend promising to give me a fantastic Christmas present if I make my boyfriend a scarf and finagle him to wear it.

Christmas shopping done and wrapped. Decorating done.

Today's photos are from my sons daycare. He's three and in a dance class- they invited the parents to come see what they have been learning, so I am making a flip out to include more photos.

I am a project lifer. That's why I am taking so many pictures.....

Yeah, today I stopped by M's to get a gift card. I should have just walked out while I was ahead....

...I've had my DD foundation pages done for a few weeks now. I have a ton of Christmas paper so I vowed to use it and not buy any.

So, I picked up a gorgeous Recollections Christmas paper pack and am redoing all of my foundation pages. I absolutely love the colors. Much much better than what I currently have.

Please tell me this has happened to someone else!!!

I finished my cover for HOLIDAY HANDBOOK 2012 tonight. I will try to add it to my gallery in the morning if I can get adecent shot. It is simple but I like how it turned out. I have my cards about 1/2 done but have decided that I probably won't be putting up my tree this year. {We live in a trailer and as my kids get older thier stuff is getting bigger and we are running out of room. I will keep praying that 2013 will bring a house with large rooms so we can decorate}. Thursday is my day off and I hope to get my first pages done. I am not doing a daily since I work in retail and alot of my december days are 9-12 hours at work. Happy Holidays, everyone!

It was fate that I would enjoy paper crafts...my name is Sharmon (like the TP)!

My photo for Dec. 4 was of my nutcracker collection. I'm just a tad addicted to nutcrackers and added 4 more to our collection this year.

A to-do list isn't a bad idea!

I think my picture will be of starting the indoor decor - boxes/bins strewn about! And maybe journaling about how much slower (but more fun!) the process is with a 2-year-old "helping".

Well, today I focused on color. My main photo was of my son's green cast (that took three hours out of my day yesterday) againt the red Christmas tree skirt and my other photo was of our red and white fiesaware dishes (that four place settings are lost somewhere in shipping)!
