It's The Little Things That Matter..

This Thanksgiving I'm doing my best to remember that it really is the little things that matter the most. We have had a tough autumn in this house, and as the holidays have quickly approached I actually have not been in the mood for celebrating. But I am thankful for what I do have, and I hope that no matter how difficult things may be for all of my friends and family out there that they can also focus on those simple pleasures. This layout of my son featuring Moxxie's Musically Inclined collection touches on one of the things I am thankful for. My little guy knows how to slow down and enjoy the little things, and I intend to do the same! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Christmas Card Time!

I cropped with friends yesterday at Archiver's. I had a few layouts to do, and when I finished them I started up my Christmas cards for the year. I had packed some kraft cards and My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 Santa Claus pad. At the store, I bought some My Mind's Eye twine and Simple Stories stickers to make my cards. They are simple but sweet! Have you started your cards yet this year, or do you make your own? Here's what I got done yesterday..

November Moxxie Blog Hop Featuring Forever Family!

Are you ready for another fun Moxxie blog hop?  For November we are focusing on the Forever Family line. Check it out:

This amazing color palette is perfect for family portraits, heritage
photos, and even a pretty fall-themed layout! The front sides of the
paper are title papers for each member of the family, and the back sides
have a variety of both masculine and feminine patterns for you to use
to accent your photos. For card makers and papercrafters, the designs are small so even on a trimmed piece of paper, you are still going to get the colors and textures of the large design.

In addition to these great papers, the embellishments will help give
your creations a family-type flair. Use them as titles, journaling
spaces, accent pieces, and embellishment clusters to finish off your pages.

The Moxxie Muses have put together some awesome ideas for this line and you could win the collection.  All you have to do is hop through the blogs and comment on each one.  For an extra entry, comment on the Facebook page and "like" us if you have not already.  How simple is that?
Comments need to be made by midnight, Tuesday November 6th and the winner will be announced on Wednesday the 7th on the Moxxie Blog. Our international customers and fans are free to play along if they are willing to pay the shipping in the event of their win.

Here are the blog links for hopping.  Just start at the top (Moxxie blog) and work your way down the list until you have visited all eleven blogs.  We are so happy to have you joining us and hope you enjoy the projects we have made. Happy hopping!

 My project for today's hop is an altered printer's tray. I love decorating these, and Forever Family is just perfect for this type of project. I made this as a birthday present for my children's grandmother. What grandparent doesn't love pictures of their grandbabies, right? She loved receiving it as much as I loved making it!
