The new theme for the month will be Frosty Fridays. It's the month where we hunker down and keep warm because it's just so darn cold outside. So I hope you'll join us with a hot cup of cocoa and a cozy throw to keep you warm while we scrap the month away!

From Wikipedia : A dreidel is a four-sided spinning top, played with during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.
It didn’t take me long to put it together, so not only is it fun but easy to make!
As I looked around I noticed that traditional Hanukkah colours are blue and white so using either American Crafts Winter cardstock pack or K & Co. Remake cardstock paper pad you can trace the pattern onto the paper or print it directly on the paper. After you have your pattern on the paper it’s a matter of cutting it out and gluing it.
So there you have it, a dreidel for Hanukkah!

For those of you that are local, you know what it looks like outside. For those that aren't, we're on our second big snowfall of the week and it's just piling up. I know on my street, the trees are covered in ice, a few of them have snapped in half and more are bent over because of the weight. It's been time to curl up in front of a fire (if you've got a fireplace) and otherwise under blankets with loved ones.
Once you've got yourself all warmed up, it's time to scrap! There are some great products available, perfect for the holiday season either for yourself or for friends and family. Give the gift of scrapping, it's the gift that keeps on giving and will last for years to come.
Joy to the world!

Today is Sinterklaasavond, something that coming from a Dutch family has become tradition.
Taken from wikipedia : Sinterklaas (also called Sint-Nicolaas or De Goedheiligman in Dutch and Saint Nicolas in French) is a traditional holiday figure in the Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles and Belgium, celebrated every year on Saint Nicholas' eve (December 5) or, in Belgium, on the morning of December 6. The feast celebrates the name day of Saint Nicholas, patron saint of, among other things, children.
So for this evening I've been making icicle boxes to hold small treats and goodies in. They are also extremely useful for small Christmas gifts. I've used paper from the American Traditional Designs Scrapbook Bundle Kit - Christmas Party. For only $9.99 you get over 500 pieces, you could make an entire themed album with this package!
Numerous patterns can be found for icicle boxes online for free. Once assembled using cardstock, they can be decorated any way you'd like. I wanted to keep mine simple as you can see although I will be adding glitter to them, but the goodies inside will be a nice surprise. They can be hung on a tree, attached to a larger gift or just given as is.
So Hartelijk Sinterklaasavond and have a great weekend!

Ok, now that I've gotten over that, let me explain why I'm excited.
There are new items in stock and they are super cute. Sweet Cakes by Pink Paislee, which by the way is a Uber Cute name for a company, is here!
Brand new from us to you. There are some must see items that are to die for! You CAN have your cake and eat it too!
Using Sugar Pie heavy weight paper, Postcards, and lettering, you can create layouts that are perfect for those with a sweet tooth and won't send you running to the dentist. Add a few ribbons and press ons and you've got yourself a sweet treat.
So now while I go back to fairy dust, Pixee Stix and fond memories of childhood ; I say to you, feel free to have a taste, these treats don't go from lips to hips, they won't go bad and are fat free!
Check them out in the New Items section!

Over the summer I had taken pictures with my family when we went to St. Joseph's Oratory and there were a few with my sister that I loved, so I used those. I had played around with colour (again) in photoshop to make her t-shirt and cap "pop". She's the best little sister anyone could ask for.
I had the paper pack and the ephemera box of die cuts to work with, so my layout actually used letters from my stash. The die cuts are adorable, colours that are bright yet subdued (not sure how that works out) and did I say adorable? So in I went, getting lost in family photos. I'm sure I"ll be using this for more family layouts as it works so well.
So overall. Pretty, adorable, gorgeous! I love this set and those that would know me wouldn't probably think that that's right, but I LOVE it! Go check out the other items available too.
What do the pages inspire in you and what would you use them for? Enquiring minds want to know!

Sorry about that, we didn't realise the blog was set that way.
Phew, glad to know it's been fixed... maybe now we'll hear more from you guys!
I am so in love with Pierce Brosnan, I must also tell you that he has absolutely no singing talent but it's just so refreshing to watch him, he's so darn cute!

First off, I want to remind everyone that there are only a few days left in the current poll, don't forget to vote. Right now of course it looks like readers want monthly kits and this is absolutely great! I know that Nini has got some great ideas planned for December, so you'll need to keep checking back to see what she's going to offer you. You won't be disappointed though, I never am.
Secondly, the most recent post was about a RAK and the only way you are going to have a chance to get it is to post a comment. Tell us about your most RAK and you could have that great collection sent your way :-)
And lastly, this blog may only have a couple people who write posts, but we need YOUR input and feedback so we'll know what you want. Without you, the readers, telling us what you'd like to see, we could be going in a completely opposite direction as to what you want and that would be such a shame. As far as I can tell you don't need to register to post a comment, it can be completely anonymous if you want it to be.
So I've decided that my post today is going to be a fun one that needs your input. I'd like all that read this, to post a comment telling us something about yourself, ask us something if you want, tell us your favorite colour... anything. You can tell us a joke, remember to keep it PG as there may be younger readers, tell us something you saw recently that made you happy. Really, anything. Tell us what you'd like to see if that's what tickles your fancy. Don't let Nini and I be the only ones that are posting comments to each other, we write enough emails as it is *lol*
I'll start : My favourite holiday is
Halloween (see pumpkin to the right) , my favourite colours are orange, green (note the scarf) and purple and I love to watch vampire tv shows and movies. Spooky enough for you?
Now, it's your turn! We want to know something... anything, c'mon you know you want to!
