I love Christmas,but I must confess that I do not like the hustle and bustle and busy,panicked feeling that I have until it is over.Between work,concerts,projects,shopping etc. I find myself on edge and stressed.Not to mention the fact that the money tree is not producing the fruit that I would like this year:)It is just a busy time of year. I enjoyed it much more when I was a child.Now I see all that my parents went through to make Christmas for us.

Well there is going to be a wedding in my family this weekend.Yep, my mom is getting married.Something I never thought would happen.I am a bridesmaid,a slightly lower position than I started with,but I'm fine with just really want it over.I'm sure I'll have an update after the festivities.

Check this out! I wasn't the Cover Girl for The Paper Passion's newest contest,but I was the one behind the camera,who helped Jillian get on the front page of a classy mag:) The photo I submitted won and all the participants had to do a layout using it. It was an awesome contest and I can't wait to do another! You need to click on the blog link btw.

Check this wreath out.I think it is pretty cute and I may try one next year. A great way to use up some of my Christmas paper stash.The possibilities are endless as far as color combos with this one.

Now off to make myself useful this festive season.I hope you are all doing fine and having a wonderful Christmas Season.

I know what you mean about feeling so overwhelmed but just a few more days to go ;0)
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I agree Julie, it is such a busy time of year and I too am not a fan of the hustle and bustle that goes a long with it. Next year,I think we should just take a family trip and skip all that other stuff.
Love that wreath too.
Congrats on the photo for the contest...that's pretty cool.
Hope the wedding well.

Congrats on the photo contest. The wreath is adorable!

As far as Christmas goes.. I don't care too much for the hustle and bustle either.. I've been thinking already about next year and I'm going to be all done and ready by November 30th... that is my goal! Wish me luck!:)
