Isn't Bri pretty? Her hubby is dodging the camera at all costs.
My uncle Keith gets really excited when I let him play with my Canon Rebel and set it on Rapid Fire so he just snaps like a zillion pictures and after a while his subjects give in and start playing along, capturing great faces.
This is my new favorite ornament, my little Partridge from the flower shop in van "Beyond the Garden" so now I am on the hunt for more Christmas decor with Partridges. So, dear reader, keep your eyes peeled for me!
Some of my favorite gifts! Nutella (YUM), second hand classics (craft!), adorable notebooks (not for school), and a Green shopping bag from Joann's (birdies!).
I was most excited about this one I think, I saw it months ago and was torn between getting it or putting gas in my car, I chose the latter :( however, mom remembered and BAM! happy little girl on December 25th!
And here is dad's gift from me! If you know the Snows at all, this is the stuff of life, Diet Coke in a Can, there is nothing better. As you can see I didn't even wrap it, no need.

Janet Hill is a Canadian artist and my absolute top favorite Etsian! I have yet to own one of her prints but soon, dear reader, soon! After a semester of Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, and an onslaught of contemporary junk with the label of "Modern Art", I just soak up her vintage colors, the cozy textures and the charm of these lovely oil paintings.
I found her while searching “Jane Austen” (don’t hate). Her paintings are so feminine and elegant, they will look great in any room, especially mine, hint hint Santa. If they were chocolate scented I would just have to die! Here are some top favorites.

Shannon and I made these soupy little sweeties tonight and laughed the whole time. Well, getting all the sticky mess off of my fingers wasn't so fun for me.
Shannon is a genius and added the ear muffs, they look perfect.
Some of them are melty-er than others.
Yeah, he's just chillin'
This one was inspired by the sweet Nellie Grace and her spectacular assortment of hair bows and flowers. :)
We had some silver sprinkles left over from something and I thought they would look like frost, but unfortunately they just look odd.
I go the idea from Crazy Domestic, a great blog btw.

My craft station/inspiration shelves!
Snowball is old and half deaf but she sure can hoist herself up into a comfy chair.
One of my favorite ornaments. She has a husband in the corner there...
I love pennants...
And here is just a little dream I'm trying to make a reality...

Tease, tease, tease! The bangs will remain un-teased for the most part and lend their sweeping drama to the Souther Bell-esque look of our hair-do.

So after all the fun, we divided up the few usable things to keep. I put mine is a small cardboard box I brought along with one of my pink and green tubs that are all mine and no one in my family is allowed to use but me! Mine! SO anyway, she helped me take the tub down her apartment stairs to dump all the rejected rejects in their dumpster . . . Thats when the craftastrophie happened, she didn't know the cardboard box was my "keep pile" and tossed it in! She flipped out even after I told her it was fine and nothing in there was really important at all but she insisted we at least try to retrieve it for the empty stinky dumpster.
see my cute tub? Since I am doomed to roam like a nomad for the rest of my life I decided I would do it with style. But here we see her trying to grab the box with a pair of nice golf clubs she just happened to have in her trunk!
It didn't work, and we ended up smelling quite foul. Fun times.
