Took a weekend trip to ANC and surrounding towns this weekend. A MUCH needed trip. Alaska is beautiful! Having a great time, sight seeing, shopping and eating great food. I live in Kotzebue and there isn't the chain stores/restaurants there. Ah, how I miss them....sometimes. I am ready to get back home, though. I thought I would share a few pictures of some of the things I have experienced.

New glasses

So I got some new glasses! It's so hard to get used to new ones, but I'm thinking I'll really like these.

The Holidays

Merry Christmas to all my blog friends.  I am so blessed that I get to have Christmas with my daughter and son n law!  It has been many, many years for that.  We are making yummy food, probably will watch a movie and of course open presents.  Depending on the weather here in AK we might get some outside time also.  It will be a busy but fun day.
I wish you all a lovely day full of love, happiness and most of all the spirit of Christmas, Jesus!

Since moving to AK I have sorely be lacking in storage. Everything is so expensive here that I've been slowly getting things here & there. My wonderful son n law made this for me & hung it up this week! I still need more room for both stamps & ribbon but so happy to have this now

Feline Creative

Hello everyone,
Did you survive the Halloween kiddies?  I would guess we had around 130 trick or treaters.  My daughter and son n law put on a baby, but creepy, mask when they answered the door!  We carved a pumpkin (yeah that night...time just slipped away) and my daughter made pumpkin seeds and a pumpkin cheesecake! All was delicious!  She's a great cook/baker!
 Today as I'm going through my blog following list I see Karen's new Post for her 2013 calendar she is making. I have to say, I'm bookmarking post so I can refer to them when I attempt this. Karen is such a crafty inspirational figure in my followings. I just can't wait to see what she comes up with next!!!
So scrolling down her blog I come across this Post. Karen is always so generous with her give away's.  Good luck to everyone...but I hope I win! :)  Thanks Karen for the inspiration and the chance for some blog candy.

I suggest y'all go check out Karen's blog and all her wonderful talents.
I'm working on my Christmas cards and hope to have a few to post today.  My daughter is wanting me to make her cards this year (75) so I'd better get going on that!  In exchange she is going to make me a toasty warm hat for my Arctic winter!
Happy Crafting,
Shirley G
