Blog-fading? No, Christmas Overdose

Did you think I'd left for good?  It felt like it.  Unfortunately, it just got too chaotic to get in a post during the hectic weeks leading up to Christmas, even though that was not my intention.  I'm sure for most of you, you totally get that.  For those of you who shop, cook, bake, decorate and wrap well before the holiday arrives, I might as well be speaking Gaelic (I'm part Irish, so that reference works).

We enjoyed family in town for the holidays, good food, great gifts and an enjoyable, though much to quick, time to celebrate.  I'll share photos in another post, later.

I managed to keep up on the December Daily challenge this year, with the help of a class I'm taking from Shimelle that has provided some great prompts for journaling and photos.  Did I get my album done?  Nope.  Am I worried about it.  Nope.  Will it get done?  For sure.  Before next Christmas?  One can only hope.

Today is about getting back into the swing of things.  And the first thing on that list is sharing some sneaks of January's kits.  This month, well January, Apron Strings is pleased to have Patricia Moussatche sharing some projects using the Smaller than a Breadbox kit.  You can see more of Patricia's great work on her blog HERE.  Check out her first project, a layout, using the My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy line.  You'll see more of her great work during the month.

I'll get back to challenges after the first of the year.  I have some fun things in mind for the blog, so stay tuned to it and 2011 will be your best year yet!

Also, look for a blog hop the first of the year to announce the 2011 Design Team.

Happy Tuesday - off to scrounge up something for dinner.  Yeah, cooking kinda took a back seat too.
