Christmas is over and I think the holidays went by way too fast! I hope you all had wonderful holidays!
My 5 days off from work were over in a blink of an eye…but they were GREAT! 🙂
Friday I stayed home, finished our wall closet project (everything is organized now!) and prepared some things for our Christmas weekend. On Saturday our friends came over to our place in the evening and cooked for us. Well…the men cooked and my girl friend and I watched “The Devil wears Prada”. It was lots of fun. And of course we went to bed way too late.
On Sunday we went to a classical Christmas concert with the same friends and had dinner afterwards…and on Monday the same friends came to our house again for a big Christmas Eve dinner and we had a great time with lots (too much!) of good food, Monopoly and tons of presents.
Most of the presents under the tree were from my dear husband – for me! 😀 I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw how much he got me! ♥
I wanted to share a few of the presents on here because you’ll probably be seeing a lot of them in the future 😛 (Note: I do NOT want to brag with what I got for Christmas! I just love sharing cool things with you.) He bought me a TON of scrapbook paper! Aaaaaaah! He paid good attention when he went shopping with me in the past few months because he got all the things I kept looking at but never bought. LOL
I got these two beautiful scrapbook paper pads:
This one has 48 Paris themed sheets:
The papers are just too cute and almost too nice to use! I’m not sure whether I’m going to make envelopes with them or something else. (Any ideas/suggestions what I could use them for??) Same goes for this gorgeous fairytale pad (also 48 sheets):
Look at all the glitter!!!
And the biggest surprise was the following present…because I actually wanted my hubby to go to AC Moore last Thursday to get it for me because it was a special sale and I had to work. When he was at the store he texted me that the lady in front of him bought 5 and there were no more. 🙁 I was pretty disappointed because it was just such a great deal! Well and on Christmas Eve I opened a big present and found this:
A tote bag with 300 (!!) sheets of scrapbook paper! I know I already have more paper than I can possibly use LOL but this was only $20 instead of $60! I had to have it! 😛 You should have seen my face when I saw it..haha my husband tricked me into thinking they were sold out! He never actually said they were sold out…but he didn’t tell me that he got the last one! 😉
Look at all the nice patterns!
And this is the inside:
I already used some of this paper to make a birthday card. And I told my husband that I won’t have to buy any paper for years! 😛 All these beautiful papers will be made into cards and envelopes.
Did you get any crafty Christmas presents?
I also received some amazing presents from my penpals and I am very blessed to have such good friends. Thank you if you’re reading this!! ♥
So today was my first day back at work…and like I thought, the office was VERY quiet today, which was nice. Tomorrow I’ll be working from home because we’re supposed to get up to 18 inches (45 cm) of snow. I really hope that we DO get that much snow..since we hardly had any snow so far this year. Did anyone of you have a white Christmas? And what are your plans for the rest of the year? I’ll be writing letters and making birthday cards for 2013. 😉
