Are you ready for the Holidays

01 November 2011

I know it's still nice outside and the weather is still not too bad , BUT CHRISTMAS IS AROUND THE CORNER..

With Halloween over..... BAM! we got cold weather,rain, snow and NOEL is here.
I love the HOLIDAYS and I am still a kid at heart LOL.

This is one of my illustrations for my cards

I was looking at my collection of books and I remember a couple  of books with  recipes,fun craft and decorations for the Holiday,so maybe I can do a weekly blog about it and share all the fun stuff for kids to do and goodies to eat .

Hope you will enjoy.
