1 - I want to try a new recipe each week. For some of you, this is no big deal but for me (and my husband!) it is! Why? Because I hate to plan meals!! I have a ton of cookbooks and I really don't mind cooking, I just do NOT like planning what to have with the main entree. I'm thinking that if I go through my cookbooks and pick out one from each one, I'll be covered for the year (seriously, I have at least that many cookbooks!). I'm actually looking forward to this and I've already started it with a recipe that I haven't made in a few years! If you have a recipe that you would like to share, please don't hesitate to do so! :c)
2 - Becky Higgins has this idea that is called Project 365. You can read about it on her blog by clicking here. In a nutshell, she's taking a picture of her life every day and then scrapping it. While I can't (and won't) commit to scrapping every single day I think setting aside one day per week (Friday) to scrap will work for me! I have SO many pictures of my kids that I need to get into albums that I would absolutely feel overwhelmed if I let myself! Then I think about the pictures I have of me & my family when I was a kid and my mother-in-law has just given me a few pictures of my DH and his family (and I get more when I go to visit so she & I can go through them all). As if that isn't enough to make you quake in your boots....my grandmother has a lot of pictures (6 or 7 boxes) that I have and will be putting them into albums for her (and scanning some for me!). I'm absolutely thrilled to do this and will start next Friday (Jan. 9th). I even have an album to work on already. I'll finish the album for our July 4th trip last year that I started at my friend Cindy's crop! If this is something that you would like to do, let me know! We can keep track of how much we have completed and keep each other on track. :c)
I'll be getting a jump start on my pictures today/tonight....we're going to the Chik-Fil-A Bowl!! I'm so excited and I can't wait to go! We're going with our next-door neighbors and it's going to be fabulous!
Whatever you do, please be careful and have a safe New Year! I'll be sharing pictures for what I've been up to over the Christmas holiday tomorrow and I hope you enjoy the projects I created!
Happy New Year! :c)

You really don't have to sit in traffic trying to get to a mall then "shark" the parking lot trying to find a parking space! Think about how crowded the mall will be and just when you spot that "perfect" sweater someone grabs it and continues to shop while you go stand in that LONG line at the register! Don't forget how cold it's going to be outside and lugging packages out to your car will only feel worse!
Forget all that! Stay in your PJs, grab a cup of coffee (or hot chocolate), turn on your favorite Christmas music and have a seat in front of your computer! Go to my website (www.AngiePage.stampinup.net) and click the "SHOP NOW" button in the top right corner. From here you can save an AMAZING 20% - 50% on Stampin' Up! products! Just check out the deals on the bundles listed on the flyer above!! What's even better about it is that these products will be delivered to your door in no time flat!
How cool is that?! More time with your family, less time fighting the crowds at the mall! :c)
This holiday season, make Stampin' Up! your one-stop shop for fabulous decorations, cards, packaging, and gift ideas. We've got everything you need to make your holidays merry and bright!

- That's the Holiday Collection stamp set
- Die-cut chipboard and Designer Series Paper
- Card stock
- Ribbon and cord
- Pretties Kit brads
- Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter
- Classic Stampin' Spots
The kit comes with everything you need to create hand-made ornaments you can make in minutes that you’ll love using year after year . Imagine your home filled with simple and rustic ornaments like this snowflake ornament.
Would you believe this guy is created with punches? Yep, punches! Leave me a comment telling me how many punches it takes to make this little guy and I'll e-mail the correct guess the directions so you can create one yourself!
This is a close-up of the image on the front cover. Brittany liked the fish because I colored it like a Rainbow Trout. :c)
If you are going to visit the North Georgia Mountains in the near (or not-too-near) future, we'd love to have you stay at our house (Gary calls it a "cabin" but I say cabins don't have basements or upstairs bedrooms)! If you would like to see it, click here and if you would like to make a reservation, call 706-878-3830, ask for Bernie and tell her that you want to stay at "The Eagle's Nest".
To get more information on this beautiful little "Alpine village", click here. This is a beautiful little city tucked away in the mountains and you can't help but have fun when you visit here!
These bookmarks make it easy for your kids teachers to find those papers they need to grade!
All you do is punch a 1 3/8" circle and cut it into a spiral. Adhere one end to your goodie bag topper and the other end to the "color" part of your eye (another 1 3/8" punched circle). Punch a 1 1/4" white circle and adhere on the colored circle, then add a punched 1/4" black circle as the pupil. Be sure to fill the bags and staple the topper onto the bag before you adhere the "googlie eyes".
The Sizzix Top Note Bigz Die is perfect to create goodie bag toppers with - super easy!
The only thing I forgot to do was take a picture of the ones I made using Halloween suckers instead of York Peppermint Patties. :c( I guess that's OK since these are cuter.

I have a TON of things to get caught up on so look for new additions over the next few days. I just wanted to let you know why I had disappeared for the past week (prior to that I was preparing for classes & the Creekside MOPS Holiday Showcase). For now, take a peek over in the margin at the current special on rub-ons - AWESOME deal!!

This is the best picture I could get of this tiny box - sorry! I just saw this template on Jackie's blog and had to try it! It is SO easy that I think I'll be doing these for our Halloween treats this year! The box holds 4 Starburst candies but I'm sure you could put other types of candy inside. You can see the template (as well as print it off) by clicking here.
This is another treat box from Jackie's blog. Isn't this just the cutest "piece of candy" ever? This little box is filled with Halloween colored M&Ms (green, orange, purple & black). See this template here.
Now this little guy is totally hilarious! You can't really tell it but it's eyes "spring" out like those funny "glasses" with a spring that lets the "eyeballs" fall out. The candy is from Kroger but I think you can find it anywhere you buy your Halloween candy. How cute is this?
As soon as Gary gets here we're headed to Trevor's football game & since he won't be here this weekend I think I'll take them to get his opinion on them. Maybe I'll give them to him so he can have a little treat on the bus ride from his game back to his school. I think he'd like that! :c)

This fun image comes in three sizes and two colors and is designed to coordinate with our Ghostly Greetings Designer Series paper and our Chills & Thrills Rub-Ons from the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalog. Spooky Spider is available for you to order --just in time for Halloween--and will also be available through Online Ordering.
Spooky Spider was created specifically for Halloween, so you won't see it in the Décor Elements Phase 2 brochure. Spooky Spider is a limited time offer, and will no longer be available after October 31, 2008 so if you love this little guy (like I do!) act NOW to get yours! You may want to order a couple extra to use next year!

Music is a big part of her life and she often "hears" songs when someone tells her something. Well, she said that someone was talking about all the great reasons to become a demonstrator and Paul Simon's "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" popped into her mind. LOL! When you read what she came up with, be sure to read it in his melody to get the full oomph of it. ;c) Check out her creative song....
You love to stamp and scrap and let your muse go free
The answer's easy -- it's an opportunity
I'd like to help you in your creativity
There must be fifty reasons to be a demo
Just slip out the ink, Pink,
Make a new page, Sage
No need to be coy, Joy,
Just listen to me
Say "yes ma'am," Pam,
No need to discuss much
Just give it a whirl, girl,
And get yourself free.
She said it grieves me so I can't explain the pain
I need new ink and stamps and paper with a grain
I said just stamp and scrap -- it's easy, don't you see?
There must be fifty reasons to be a demo.
Make a new choice, Joyce,
Stock your paper bin, Lynn,
Try some new hues, Sue,
It's a really low fee
CASE a new scheme, Breen,
A Big Shot is waiting for you
Just give it a whirl, girl,
And get yourself free.
She said, why don't we both just sleep on it tonight
I said, in the morning you'll begin to see the light
She signed up 'cuz she realized I was so right
There must be fifty reasons to be a demo.
Take a good look, Brooke,
It's all the rage, Paige,
Scrapbook a day, Kay,
Be all you can be,
Sparkle and gleam, Jean,
Embossing is so much fun,
Just give it a whirl, girl,
And set yourself free.
After that VERY creative song, she listed 50 reasons and I couldn't agree more!! After reading her song and these reasons, contact me & we'll talk about signing you up as part of my team! You won't want to miss these opportunities!

This is the card I came up with. It was actually one of the Stamp-a-Stack cards we did but I added the Pretties Pearls to it so that it would fit into the challenge. What do you think - did it fit the challenge?

The first card was the first one JT opened (sorry for the blurry picture) and I made sure to use UGA colors! He loved it and I thought it turned out pretty darn well! :c)
