enjoying a slower pace this year

I love everything I've been reading about not wanting to over~do Christmas this year. I have long agreed, yet seem to fall into the trappings of the season year after year. I am glad to say, so far so good this year. No over spending, no charging on credit cards, and no over~shopping in sight! 
Like everyone else, I want to spend my time enjoying the holidays with family and friends. For me this includes lunching with girlfriends, baking cookies with Ethyn, Christmas plays at school, and hopefully a Christmas parade or two. 
I completely enjoyed decorating the tree with the ornaments all the Silver Bella's made and swapped in Omaha last month. Here's a peek at a few (I wish I had photo's of them all, but after trying 3 times I have given up for today).

On Sunday I took a class at Salt Water Designs in Fullerton. This is a gem of a home/gift shoppe and if you're in the area you must stop in. Sande was teaching a class making collaged journals. I love her technique (easy~peasy) and I love the look. I will be sure to make more these.
