She made this board game for her sister, similar to the game of Life but with a Christmas twist.
They played for so long I starting having thoughts of getting it made for real to share with friends as this years gift.

Have you heard of the Elf on the Shelf book?
He's quite the mischievous little elf I tell you.
But for any family with young kids, I think this is such a fabulous idea.
And it can be a bit daunting to try to do this late enough at night that the kids don't wake up and see, to when I wont fall asleep before I remember to do it.
It's like a little Christmas everyday.
Chuckles provides a great morning laugh and sets the day off with just the perfect amount of festive cheer.
Maybe one day I can even pass him on the one of the girls for their kids.
I love my iPhone.
I love using Instagram on my iPhone.
Haven't heard of it?
You gotta check it out if your an iphone user.
It's like twitter meeting your photo album.
You can get magnets made from your Instagrams at Stickygram.
I just received mine today and they are awesome!!!
I love technology

It has been a tough year full of crazy adventures and some real challenges.
The death of friends and loved one has been the most intense for me.
Maybe it my current age?, but I have a deep sense of urgency to live for the moment, be on the present, to be happy and healthy.
And my family and I have that.
We live it really well.
Sure we get caught in the day to day stuff like everyone elsa but I make it a priority to live life to the fullest.
With our house back in relative order, this was the first weekend in who knows how long that we actually had family time.
We made it into Christmas time.
Then we headed to Doveside Tree Farm and searched for our tree.
This is the first in 5 years that we have a real tree.
K found this one and we knew it was perfect.
I kinda like my second hand tree for that reason.
Music, food and family.
Perfect start to our holiday season.

I finished 2 quilts a couple of weeks back and sent them off as christmas gifts for my niece and nephew.
I cant wait to hear what they think of them.
Absolutely lovely to see it come to fruition.
The applique robots, planets and spaceship took the most time but well worth it.
I actually had them done about a year ago, that show long it took me to get to this project.
May it keep him cozy till I get to finally meet him.
My niece is 2 and I hope she'll love the fairies in this small blanket, I know I fell in love with them.
May it keep her warm until I can snuggle her one day soon.
