Better Late Than Never, I Guess

Oh I had such high expectations for December. Back in November, I planned all of these great activities to help me stay crafty and embrace the holiday spirit. I signed up for an online photography class with Katrina Kennedy focusing on capturing holiday spirit, I bought some Project Life page inserts with the intent of incorporating December daily layouts into my 2013 scrapbook, and I signed up to participate in a Christmas Card Swap with some fellow ScrapHappy gals since I don't normally make cards for the 140 folks on our holiday card list.

But here's my reality. I've printed the lesson plans from the photography class but have yet to snap a photo. I've been behind since it started....we only got our tree up last weekend and so taking photos of Christmas lights was a bit challenging. The good news is that I can go back to the lessons at anytime, so all is not lost.

I've given up entirely on the December daily idea...I don't remember what I did yesterday, never mind what I did December 1-11. I'll save those pages for next year and maybe I'll start making pages now so that I truly accomplish it next year (or maybe not).

The point of this blog post is not to complain about what I didn't do, but rather celebrate the one thing that I did do...I finished all 18 cards for my holiday card swap and I actually like some of the them (a lot even). So without further ado here are some samples:

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere. I really do appreciate your visits and your comments.

May your holidays be happy and your New Year filled with crafty goodness!
