Almost finished with Christmas gifts!

Isn't this little house cute??? I made two similar houses for Christmas gifts this year.

There is a bit of Stampin' Up! supplies but alot of stuff came directly from my stash and a quick trip to my favorite local scrapbooking shop.

I really enjoyed making this and seeing it come from a papier mache house to this. It actually came together very quickly.

Inside (the roof comes off) there are dividers for each month and then a card for each week. These can be used to jot down notes, memories, happenings, musings, quotes or whatever on a weekly basis. Then at the end of the year you have a great little box filled with little bits and pieces of your whole year.

Right now American Idol is on in the next room. The singers are either really good or really bad. Some people are like watching (hearing?) a train wreck. This is the only part of the season that I really like because the girls and I just laugh and laugh!

So I better get back to it, there's only 20 minutes left.

Thanks for stopping by, leave comments if you like! It's always fun to read them!

Happy crafting!
