"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." --Audrey Hepburn

Christmas Preparations and Projects

So I don't know about all of you, but my house is pretty hectic this morning getting ready for family parties and holiday festivities. I am proud to say that I finished all of my own gift-wrapping last night, so I'm free from most of the stressful last-minute preparations. However, as soon as the holidays are over, I need to start packing for my upcoming trip to Paris!

In the meantime, you can entertain yourself with a hilarious website that enables you to "elf" yourself by putting your own head on the body of a dancing elf! http://www.elfyourself.com/

I am also very excited to get started on my next big project - a travel scrapbook that will finally find a home for the many, many pictures and other miscellaneous items I brought home from my trip to the Mediterranean last summer. I already made a trip to the crafts store near my home to pick up all of the necessary materials (solid and patterned papers, an album, various stickers and decorative backgrounds). If you happen to be a scrapbooker yourself, please feel free to share any helpful tips or creative ideas. I have only made two scrapbooks in the past, and this promises to be a much larger-scale project!

hey!I love your blog!

well Ive made tons of scrapbooks so one thing id advise you to do would be to leave a page in the beginning for table of contents, and to not forget to number the pages so you can enjoy it more later.
