It's been awhile....

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
Long time, no blog!

I hope you have all had a wonderful, happy, Merry, Merry Christmas.
My family and I celebrated a few days early this year so that we could work around everyone's schedule.  It was wonderful to have my hubby, our sons, our daughter in law, my Mama and all of our beautiful grands gathered under our huge Christmas tree at the same time!  And, it worked out great because 2 days later I came down with the crud...again.  That's twice this month - blah.

Anyway, between preparing for the holidays and being sick (twice) this month, I have been left with very little time to play in my Studio or to blog. I'm hoping to complete the "Christmas de-construction"of my home very soon (where did all this stuff come from anyway) and get back in my Studio for some creative time!

So, I'm off to pack away the rest of the Christmas decorations and run the vacuum cleaner (yet again) over the millions of Christmas tree needles on my floor.  I'll leave you with a few pictures of my family and hopefully be back soon with some crafty photos very soon.


My sweeties from left to right:
Hannah - 19 months
Brayden - 3 years old
Blake - 5 years old
Emma - 10 years old
I love this picture!  Emma's reaction when she first saw her goodies is priceless!

Santa left lots of fun toys at Nonna and Papa's house.

Somebody must have been extra good this year!

Emma digging into her stocking.

Hannah didn't quite know what to make of all this, but she jumped right in!

I love surprising my Mama ♥

Some of my favorite men!
My "boys", Christopher and Matthew and grandson, Blake.

This picture is not the best, but it makes my heart happy.  Everyone is enjoying being together and checking out the goodies Santa left (even the big kids).

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share some happy memories with you!
Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon....

  2. What a beautiful family, Tanya. I love seeing these type of photos. I love the kids' reactions. Wonderful memories. And your mom, how lucky is she to get a Big Shot. I always say, Things happen for a reason. If y'all had Christmas on Christmas, you would have been sick. So there is your silver lining. I pray you get over it fast this time. We miss your beautiful creations. I enjoyed your visit. So here's to a happy, healthy and very crafty new year. (hope you are all better by then)
