Have you got your tree up yet? Is your household all ready for the coming holidays or are you up the wall, drowning in tinsel, glitter and wrapping paper?
Every year I promise myself I’ll be better organised next year and next year comes around and I find I’m still frantically wrapping gifts or clearing away discarded decorations or worse still, trying to get them up lol but somehow this year, I seem to be on target. Don’t ask me what’s going on but hey, I’m not knocking it. It will make a lovely change to be able to celebrate the whole of the holidays without fretting I’ve forgotten something.
Last night Elly and I managed to get our Tree up (well, one of three anyway lol). This year I’ve gone for gold, red and green. Quite traditional for me, but I like the way it turned out. I bought a couple of new pieces like a big heart and the word ‘Joy’ for Jay which I placed right at the centre but he hasn’t noticed them. Oh well, I think its about as much as he can handle to have my Styled Tree up. If I left it to him he’d have all the local kids doing it because that’s the part of decorating the tree he likes. I couldn’t cope with that though, not the kids, but the messy looking tree lol. I have to live with enough mess, I want my tree to look pretty, KWIM?
These are not great photos but it gives you an idea anyway. Elly looks huge against the tree doesn’t she lol but its just the angle I took the photo. Its actually quite a bit bigger then me. I will try and get some better shots later when the light is a little better.
Anyway….. Lets get on with our news for today.
I have a brand new Collection in store for you today. Well, its actually my Vintage Berry kit from last year that I have completely revamped so its massive now lol. Well, I like BIG kits hehe. This collection has not only undergone a total makeover. its been added to until I literally couldn’t stuff any more into it so if you have the old version, trust me, its nothing compared to this one.
You’ll find them all available individually or in a super saver bundle at my Studio Store right now with a super 40% OFF for a limited time only
My 10 for $10 is currently running at my Studio store through December and has 10 fantastic full sized page kits, all with a festive flavour so you can stock up and add to your stash and scrap to your hearts content. A real Bargain. Check it out HERE
I’m the Studio Spotlight Designer for the next couple of weeks. this is a fun challenge run via the Studio forum where you get to play with a mini from the spotlight Designer and have the chance to win the complete Page Kit. What’s more, while the Designer is in the spotlight, you get that page kit at a knockdown price.

Festive Fun Activities @ the Studio
Lots of fun and festivities going on in the Studio forum right now with some awesome gifties and goodies. Don’t forget I’m running the Dress Your Avatar Challenge this year and we’ve had some great entries already. Check it all out here
Don’t ask me how I managed to find the time to participate in a couple of the Studio challenges but I did and here are the results.
As you all know, I used to run the color challenge when I had more time and I loved it. I LOVE how the girls are carrying on the tradition of folk having a go at creating their own little minis to give away. I couldn’t resist Linda’s Holiday Treasures theme so here’s my little giftie for you.
Grab it from my Blog. Image linked

What’s next Miss Boo?
Well, I have yet another gorgeous new Collection (a fabulous revamp of a prior page kit) for you on Friday at the Studio
Here’s a sneaky look at the old version for you. How will the new one stand up though? You’ll just have to wait until Friday. ( I know, I’m such a tease hehe)
There will be more fun and frolics (and hopefully more eggnog) with our Challenge forums at the Studio and of course, I’ll be working on some rather delicious new collections.
Well folks, much as I’d like to I’m afraid I can’t sit around chatting. I have a garland to put up and decorate (sorry, I mean ‘style ) but we’ll be back soon with lots more so be sure to check us out then.
and merry Christmas one and all
