Advent is here

I love this time of year and making my advent wreath is my number one necessity for the holiday spirit (not counting the tree.... but that only goes up a few days before christmas).  This is the third year I use a rectangle instead of a circle. What I love about this one is that it sits on a trey that I put oasis soaked in water on.  I then cut down the pine and stick into the oasis. That way I can water the wreath and it stays green for a month :)  I didn't think of taking a photo of the tray before I started so here is one similar I found on the internet.  Mine is all metal, not wood.

I try to do something different every year, but after 20 years, it gets more difficult each year. LOL :D Usually I keep the color combination simple but now I went for all my favorite colors :) White, red, blue/turquoise and brown.  It has taken me a couple of days to get used to how colorful it is, but I think I like it :) OH and to make it all perfect...it started snowing yesterday! :)

Have a wonderful advent!

Scrapbooking weekend fun

Packing  "a few" scrapbook necessities, pajamas and a toothbrush and going away to meet a few fun ladies at a hotel to scrapbook together for a long weekend must be one of the most fun scrapbook related things I do.  Unpacking when I get home...not so much :Þ

This fall I did just that... there was so much laughter, great food and an occasional glass of wine it was amazing I even managed to do a few layouts :) 

I had just gotten my dusty attic products and I just fell in love!  TFL! :)
