Two Thousand Eleven

Oh my scrappy peeps....there is SO much good stuff coming in 2011.  I simply cannot wait for it to get here.

Here's a few hints about the upcoming scrap goodness that is entering my life next year:

* I have been honored & humbled with an invitation to join the staff of a fabulous & inspiring scrapbooking website.
* One of my jewelry items is going to be published in a national papercrafting magazine.
* I will be launching a new website dedicated solely to my jewelry line.
* The NABS Scrapbook meetup group - started with my friend Angie back in June - is growing and thriving.  There has been a surge in requests to join NABS in the past month, which means meeting new scrap friends that are just as nuts about papercrafting as I am.

I will be sharing more details....soon!

Now...go scrap something!

O Christmas Tree!

Okay, okay...this isn't really MY tree...

I googled "world's most expensive Christmas tree" and this is what I got.  It's in Singapore and it's worth about a million bucks.  It also weighs over 7000 pounds.  (Not exactly something that you can have hubby fetch from the attic on his lunch break.)

You don't see a picture of my Christmas tree because... we aren't putting one up this year.

*I'll pause while you climb back into the chair from whence you fell when you read this devastating news.*

Yes, it's true.  There is no musical Pisowald Christmas decor illuminating the front yard - and pissing off the neighbors - for 2010.  There are no stockings hung, no garland strung, no cookies baked.

And since this is the internet after all....I don't know what criminal types are eagerly perusing scrappy blogs like mine just waiting for an unsuspecting papercrafter to divulge just when her and her family will be out of town so they can break in and steal all her pretty paper... I can't tell you exactly when or where we will be going.

(If you are a burglar reading this, note that all of my scrapbooking supplies have been booby trapped and you will not get out alive. It would be much safer for you to just break into the garage and help yourself to my husband's fishing paraphernalia.)

Maybe decorating would've gotten me more in the Christmas spirit.  I'm not a huge fan of the holidays anyway so without any festive decor hanging from every nook and cranny, it's really easy for me to be Scrooge-like.
I'm hoping that once we are in the sub-zero weather...surrounded by our families (and other people we see less than once a year) that it will all finally feel like Christmas.

Til next year....
