It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

 Christmas decorations and the tree are all up, it snowed this weekend...finally it's looking like Christmas.  We don't get much snow here in Boise, so it's always a treat when it actually stays on the ground for a while.  The only downside is it came Saturday and if it was Friday we probably would have had a snow day from school!  *Ü*

For the first few hours after decorating the animals always have to check things out.  Sarah has taken up residency under the tree to watch it snow outside.
Eric has taken a real liking to these little trees...and all things fake schubbery actually!  He has a branch he LOVES!
He lays for hours and loves all over this fake evergreen I used for the photos in the 12 Days of Christmas.  Silly cat!

Finally the day she's been waiting for...SNOW!!!  She loves to bury her ball in the snow and dig it up for hours and hours on end.  You would think her feet would be freezing - but the love for the ball and snow wins!

Suzanne Barnard from Australia send me a picture of her creations from the 12 Days of Christmas 2013 tutorial.  She has created the Book of Lists from Day 5 and  the Tray of Boxes from Day 7.  Looks awesome Suzanne, thanks for sharing a photo!!

  3. I hope to be doing some playing today and making these boxes as well! TFS

  4. OH WOW!!! I feel so honoured Becky....Thank you for the mention....It like being close to Stampin'Up! royalty. I buy lots of your tutorials and love teaching them to my stamp girls. One day I plan to meet you in person :) P.S. I realised I took the photo before adding the buttons to the boxes....DOH :(

  5. Love the boxes! Are those the XLarge Boxes from SU? My cat, Sweet Pea, loves to eat my fake plants (primarily the one that looks like real grass) and then pukes! Needless to say, she can't get to that one now! I put up a fake tree for the first time last year, she was eating on that as well! So much for real plants or fake ones! LOL! Your Fur Babies are precious!! :)
