Apparently Halloween really does mark the start of the Christmas season. I was out to my local big box craft stores and POOF all their Christmas stuff was out. Before now, I could find very few Christmas scrapbook things in my local stores (though there is a ton of it online). Today there were tons of paper packs and punches and all kinds of other goodies. Of course I bought some things so...
Tomorrow I am going to put together all the projects I have underway and get everything pulled together so I can finish them. I have several word books underway, a wedding scrapbook album, Christmas cards, two trips to Disney World, blah blah blah. SO much to do and so little time. I really need to finish this stuff before I get another bright idea to start something else.

Back from my trip to Disney and working on making Christmas cards. It was a quick trip for Halloween but we had a good time. It was chilly, though. Stayed at Animal Kingdom Villas. Absolutely beautiful.
So, I have been playing with my Gypsy (took it with me - great for plane flights). I am going to post a .cut file I made of a word book (once I can figure out how to do that). I made it with Design Studio. I have done several word books with the Gypsy and each time I figure out a better way to do it so I can do them pretty quickly now. Unfortunately, I can't post any Gypsy files until Provocraft delivers that functionality.

In 6 days I leave for Orlando with my kids to visit Disney World all decked out for Halloween! I have been collecting Halloween themed Disney embelishments but hope I can find something when I am down there. We are going to Mickey's party and have costumes to wear. I hope it isn't stifling hot while we are there. Taking my friend Gypsy with me - I need to give her a better name.

OK, this is going to be tough for me - I spent all day playing around with templates for this blog. So many choices, I will have to stop myself from changing what it looks like all the time. It is fun though and provides another opportunity to be creative and spend hours of time...
I am figuring this out. I found a super cute image on the Cricut boards for "I Love my Gypsy" and I was able to add it to my blog. I am so excited.
I have been playing with my Gypsy. I created a LOVE word book last night while watching football and will try to cut it today. It is very easy once you get the hang of it. I still have to look at the manual to figure out some of the buttons.
