Wishing you and your families a very Merry Christmas!
I want to take this opportunity to say a sincere Thank You to each and every one of you who take the time out of your busy days to come visit my little blog. It means the world to me that you make the effort, and for those of you who leave such sweet and caring comments, they really are appreciated. I have been so blessed to make some really special friends along this journey, which I cherish dearly! I can't thank you enough!

For my DT sisters who work so hard each week creating such fabulous cards and projects, I can honestly say that I am so blessed to be a part of a team with all of you. Your inspiration runs deep and your friendship touches my heart.

To Priscilla from Midnight Madness whose undying drive helps keep us in check and makes us challenge ourselves...Thank You!

To the ever talented Mr. Dustin Pike who keeps the team enthralled with his art work and patiently waiting for his next creations.....Thank You! Between the two of you, I have the perfect balance with my cyber bosses and couldn't ask for more dedicated individuals to work with.

And so as Christmas is almost here, I leave you with this, a few photos of our Christmas tree and a little gingerbread house that I made with my little boy Thijs. I hope you enjoy them.
May you and your families all be blessed with a Beautiful Christmas full of love and happiness!

Have a safe Christmas and I will see you real soon!
Extra warm hugs,


  1. Your tree is so beautiful, Charlotte! What a great gingerbread house too. I'll bet your little boy had fun with you making that. We decorated gingerbread cookies together here. I can't believe it will be here and gone before we know it. Enjoy your time with your family at this special time of year. I look forward to working more with you in the New Year.

    Hugs and blessings,

  2. Oh Charlotte! May you and your family have a WONDERFUL Christmas as well! Your tree is so beautiful and your gingerbread house looks so temptingly delicious! Have a lovely night, and hope tomorrow will surround you all with love and joy! :)
    Big Warm Hugs to You,

  3. Your tree is beautiful Charlotte, and the gingerbreadhouse looks delicious!

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!


  4. Lovely crafty work you've shared with us all throughout 2009, can't wait to see what you come up with in 2010! Happy New Year to you and your family!


  5. Happy New Year Charlotte!

    I am looking forward to see you again next year and I hope you will be full of inspiration to share ;o)

    Thank you for the time and the effort you put into being a DT member, and for sharing all your crafting with us.

  6. Sorry it has taken so long to reply to your question! I do appreciate you visiting my blog! Yes, my sweet chinchilla is a good pet but mainly for adults. You wouldn't want a little kid to yank or pull on her tail or fur because they could fall out! Yes, literally her tail could come off!!! And the fur releases as a defense mechanism if thinking they are being attacked. But they are very soft and cute and cuddly if you are gentle. Very low maintenance too and they have a long life expectancy! Thanks for the tip about the flour...same thing my MIL said to do but I wasn't sure until you said it so now I will try that. I must say they are a big hit...the flavor is so good! My mom and MIL said it is the best oatmeal raisin cookies they have ever had! How about that!!! Thanks again for sharing such a wonderful recipe!
