A pair of crafty twins...

Happy Holidays crafty peeps! 

I hope Santa was good to you, he certainly was to me :)

We managed to have a "white" Christmas as my parents live further north than where we do, and it was truly a wonderful day.  
Christmas doesn't even begin for me until I am with my sister Jennie who has Down's syndrome. She certainly keeps the true spirit of Christmas alive, and it's as if seeing it through the eyes of a child every year.

Speaking of children; I had the opportunity to have two of my favourite little people in the world stay overnight at my home Thursday into Friday.

I know I am a wee bit biased, but seriously I have never met two greater kids then my 9 year old twin niece and nephew. They are such bright, articulate and funny little people. We had sooooo much fun together the entire time they were here and they most certainly kept us entertained!

They both know what a crafty Auntie they have, so it didn't surprise me when they asked if we could make cards. I basically opened up the craft store and let them do their stuff. All I did was clean up the mess.
I am so very proud of their creativity and want to share it with all of my friends out here in blog-land.

They chose to make Happy New Year cards, so without further adieu....

You should have seen the look on their faces when I told them I would be posting their creations on my blog. They were even more excited when I told them that people will probably leave some comments for them when they stop by to see what they’ve been up to.

Kyle, Ryann and I want to wish you all a happy, healthy and very happy New Year!

Thanks for stopping by JS
