I planned to get up early and post to the blog. After I got my cup of coffee brewed the power went out! I am grateful that it waited at least until I had a cup of coffee made or it would have been worse. It was a little too dark to read and my phone was only half charged so I decided that I would get my daily walk done. I bundled up and headed out and yes, it was cold. The one good thing I noticed about my cold morning walk is that I walked a little faster than usual. Shortly after I got home the power came on, yay! Not having the lights on or heat, puts things in perspective real quick.
We started decorating the house. The tree and stockings are up and some assorted other things and it is looking a little more festive in here. I'm working on getting in the Christmas spirit.
I used the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and stamped the holly multiple times and then colored in the image using Shaded Spruce and Real Red Stampin' Blends. The sentiment is also from the Christmas Gleaming set. The stamp actually reads "& be jolly this season". I left off the & and inked the rest. The twine is from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack. The sparkly gems are part of the Flowers for Every Season Gems.
Thank you for stopping by and remember to be jolly!
