PostHeaderIcon A different train of thought Hi-jacked my blog

I finally slowed down long enough to pop in and blog a bit. I have had no mojo for signature tags so it's back to my other love. Digiscrap. Nothing like the smiling faces of your babies to make your heart sing. It also helps that Sweet Shop Designs is giving away a template a day until the 15th. Check out their blog for the details. Here's a couple of LO's I did this last week using a couple of them and kits from SSD.
*I am not on any of their Creative Teams..I just like their goodies.*

This was created using Dec 1st's freebie and the kit Stand by Misty Cato. This was created using using the Dec 2nd freebie and the kit Santa Season Kit by Melissa Bennett.

Scrapping has really put me in the holiday mood and refocused me on how much I really am blessed with my family and faith. We are working on creating some new holiday traditions this year. We tried to bring our family(brothers and children) together over Thanksgiving but unfortunately it seemed that every negative thing that could happen...well DID! So with a slight parting of family values, we are refocusing on our immediate family in an effort to convey the true meaning of the holdiay season. To celebrate the birth of Jesus, to be kind and compassionate to those less fortunate (and to bring that thru to the rest of year) and to be thankful that we have one another.
So for this year my big new tradition will be to bake a birthday cake with my daughter. Everyone likes to have a birthday cake, right? Well since this is Jesus's..we will do one in his honor. For gifts, I will get each of my family member a new Christmas ornament of a faith based nature that will be given to each of them to be added to the tree for next year.
So I challenge you. Are you stuck in a rut? Do you feel pulled in 40 different directions during the holiday season. Well why don't ya step back, refocus and savor the small moments that God has given you. Create a new tradition or throw some of the old ones out that just drive ya insane.
Peace, Love and Joy to All!

About Me

My Photo
Balinda (RebelChick)
Just an everyday girl trying to find my way in the world to live life fiercely and passionately. I was a signature tagger for several years but art journaling has replaced that passion and it feeds my soul creativiely and spiritually. I also homeschool my DD, scrapbook, play around in photography, spoil my cats and drive my hubby insane on a daily basis. My faith in the Lord helps me juggle all these blessings. I keep this blog because it makes me happy. Sometimes I blog a lot and other times it collects a little dust. Thanks for visiting and being my friend.♥
