There is a first time for everything.....

Here you go.  This is the first entry on my first blog.  I will tell you right from the start, I am not a blogger.  I like to look at other people's blogs and marvel in the creativity of others, but I am not a consistent journal keeper or diarist or status updater, so this will be hit and miss.

That being said, I do craft on a regular basis and I love showing off my creations so I may be fairly faithful to posting here.  We will just have to see.

I am not going to do a lot of explaining how I do everything, most of you will already be better at all of these things than I am.  I will be happy to answer questions about my creations at any time though!  Now My first creative uploads.......

I am the proud owner of a brand new Cricut Expression.  I have been playing with it for about 3 months now and I love everything that I have been able to do.  This is my first batch of CHRISTmas cards for this year.  As a novice, I am quite proud of how they turned out.

Around our small community, I am known as the Christmas Lady.  Our pastor has even dubbed our house as the "House of Lights".  Christmas is my very favorite time of year and I plan and shop all year long for just the right new sparkly touches to my displays.  I am an AVID Santa collector.  I currently have around 650 in my collection of figurines, pictures, and ornaments.  I have several hundred books about Santa as well.  The next few pictures are of my Christmas house from 2010.  It was pretty amazing but I am already planning for this year to be even more spectacular!  Enjoy the sparkles and watch for me to post some more of my creations in the next few days. 
Be Blessed!

  2. Hi Nan,
    I stopped by to see if your tags were posted yet and found instead cute cards and a whole lotta Santa' it must take a long time to decorate at your house! LOL Do you decorate the
    outside too?

  3. Heaven4333, yes I do decorate the outside. I just didn't get any good pictures last year. I will do lots of pictures this year though! I will probably get my tags up tomorrow!
