The action!'s going to be a little word that serves me well this year, I can tell :)

Already I'm thinking of things in a slightly different way...letting myself get on a roll, rather than procrastinating my way into frustration (as I tend to do sometimes LOL).

Here are the results of letting a little momentum happen...

A double LO using photos from Carols By Candlelight this year, using some scraps from my Everybody Loves Christmas pack by Echo Park. I used up most of the papers in my December Daily album, but couldn't bare to relegate the rest of them to my scrap bin :)

These glittery letters are from an almost-empty pack of Lil Davis chipboard I've had for years. I cut a "d" into an "a", and a "g" into an "o"...that's allowed, you know :)

The tree is cut from a sheet of Tinsel and Twig paper by The Girls Paperie. I stitched around the outside, and set eyelets for the decorations. I inked the edges of the LO to add a bit more definition.
Momentum then kicked into overdrive, and I made another LO...

Just a simple one to document the Baby Shower we held for Merryn's classroom teachers assistant (x2) and 2 of the Mums in the class, who are all expecting babies in the New Year! I used the same glittery alphas (again with a repurposed letter to fill in for the "o") because they were on my desk :) The paper is by Pebbles Inc, and I cut the "for 4" (that you can barely see in the photo) using my Slice.

I'm hoping to get a little momentum happening with my Little Bluebirds stitching in the next few has taken me FAR too long to finish, and I'm not letting myself start anything new until it's done!
