We toasted our New Year in with Simon and Lizzy. They gave each other a sweet little hug at midnight and then thankfully fell asleep. I was ready to go to bed at nine.
We are going to our last Christmas celebration of the season at Fletcher's Aunt Linda's house tomorrow. We always draw names for that side of the family. I created one of the fold out stationary boxes with note cards, love notes, tags, a postage pocket and little notebook/address book. Here is the link to the tutorial. It is very easy to put together and it makes a nice gift.
These are the six note cards and 2 of the love notes that are inside the box. The patterned papers are all by Kaiser Kraft. I love their lines! I used cuttlebug folders, spellbinder nestablities, Just Rite monogrammer and lots of glitter pen.
On another completely unrelated note, Ali Edward has her One Little Word for the year again on her blog. The idea is to choose a word that guides you for the year. My word for 2009 is perseverance.
Perseverance: The steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state especially in difficulties or obstacles.
