Eat, Drink and Be Merry !


It's that time of year and I'm starting making some Christmas layouts for this years Christmas album.    I have always loved collecting coffee mugs from travel, but for lack of storage space in the kitchen I have gotten rid of a lot of mugs.   But my Christmas mugs are alway in the cabinet and ready to get out and use for the entire season.   A few years ago I found this kitchen them Santa and added it to my Santa collection so that I could add a few things in the kitchen at Christmas for decorating for the season.     Today I got out my mugs, and hung my Christmas dish towel on the rack and my kitchen is ready for Christmas.    I should probably bake something to add to go with my coffee or hot chocolate but that will have to wait.

I'm entering this at two different challenges, USE YOUR STUFF & LASTING MEMORIES.

First I used the mood board at "USE YOUR STUFF"   I loved this great seasonal mood board and I was inspired by the red, green and cold color swatches and the the picture of the cup of hot cocoa.

Next I played along with the Pick 3 challenge at "LASTING MEMORIES" where I am also a guest design team member for the month.   I actually picked 4 items, a Doily, the color Green, the color Gold and a Tag.
