May the Force Be With Us in 2013

I have a blog goal for 2013.
I want to double my followers.
Post twice a week.
Enter at least two new challenges a month.
Every 25th of the month its Christmas time on my blog which will help me later in being prepared for next years craft fair. 
There my blog goals are now out in the universe and I am giddy to stick to the program.
The giddy may be the Christmas Chocolate I am still munching on.
Thats stuff has got to go lol.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family, friends and fur babies.
During the Christmas Chaos my best friends little guy turned one.
His parents are big Star Wars fans.
I wanted his card to mean something not just another Happy 1st Birthday.
So I decided to make my card more for his parents than him.
Lets face it he wont remember anyways.

His gift was a Star wars book called Darth Vader and son. Too cute actually.
So I decided to use a stamp called The Force from Saturated Canary.

Jump start on Next Christmas ALREADY!!!

This Christmas I lost track of how many cards I was lucky enough to make for people who ordered from me.
That was so much fun.
Then of course the thirty or so cards that I made to personally give out to family and friends.
However I ran out of time to make any to be able to enter in one of our towns many Christmas craft fairs.
Thats one of my goals for next Christmas.
The big Sooke Community hall Christmas Craft fair.
I think that would be soooo much fun.
So to ensure I have enough cards to sell at the craft fair, sell on the side and give as gifts I am starting now.
I figure why not, I am in the Holiday zone.
Anyone who personally knows me will say I am in the Holiday zone all year but I do take some time off lol.
I am not totally one of the Christmas nutters you see featured on tv specials on TLC.
Even though I do have a secret fantasy that involves my husband channelling his inner Clark Griswald and going nuts with our Christmas lights.
Is that weird?
So Michaels had these cute little Snowmen on end of season clearance and I couldn't resist picking up a box.
Two dollars is cheap.
So I am curious how many different ways I can incorporate him on a Christmas card.

Snowflakes make me wish for a white Christmas

In Victoria BC we see snow falls but they really don't last longer than a week.
Most of the time just as we build a snowman the rain comes and washes him away.
Tonight we have had a few flakes landing on the ground making me dream of a white Christmas since we are only a week away from the big day.

Its December Baby!!!!!!!

I cant believe that we are just three weeks away from Christmas!
I spend so much time during the year planning and preparing things for this time of year ,yet I still get surprised when I flip the calendar and its actually here.
Ktrista at Saturated Canary sweetly gave her blog followers an early Christmas gift.
Isn't she adorable. She can now be purchased on Kristas store site for just two dollars.
I think this image is what my daughter Karlie is going to look like in a few years.
