Accordion Album...a great gift idea to share!

It is time to gather your photos of your loved ones and create little albums to display in your home and to give as thank yous. This paper is retired, but you can find a lot of beautiful paper packs on my online business address (OBA: ) This is the last week of 2013! When you are finished celebrating the New Year, join me on Thursday afternoons between 1:30 and 4:30 to preserve your memories. Always, Alayne

Merry Christmas! Celebrate Christ's Birthday!

Time flies...and it is already time to celebrate Christ coming to earth! Last year my girls and grand kids made cookies as part of our Christmas celebration. I used the Designed Decor Frame kit to create some wall art featuring my cuties. Don't forget to take a few snap shots of your festivities in the next couple of weeks so you will have some sweet pictures to play with in the New Year. As always, may I remind you that people and the Word of God are the most important things to concentrate on. Everything doesn't have to be perfect to make a perfect time of fellowship with those you love. Relax and enjoy each other and the season of giving. Always, Alayne

I have had a tremendously busy year and my blog has fallen to the way side, but I would love to keep in touch with you and let you know what is happening in my family and my creation times.
So please forgive the absence in the last few months, and check out my blog on Fridays because I am going to start posting again.
Meanwhile watch this cute video on how to make some neat hair pieces. One of my friends tried the large cloth rosette yesterday and it came out great!
