A Passion For Creativity

Unleash Your Creativity, by Mary Sara Pipia

December – Where did you come from? December 9, 2009

I can’t believe that it is already December 9th.  Where is the time going?  I know it’s December because here in Boston/New England, last week it was 70 degrees and today some areas North and West of Boston and New England got walloped with snow.  It’s been just crazy weather. 

Once again, it’s been a while since I posted anything of real substance.  I caught a virus in mid-November before Thanksgiving, it wasn’t the flu, but it’s been dragging on.  So my best laid plans to share ideas with you for this Christmas season have gone a bit astray.  I love this time of the year, but not when I’m still a tad under the weather.   I did get my tree up on Monday evening and the lights are working and decorating it this weekend.

I hope to finish the Christmas cards that I started this weekend.  I will post them after I have mailed them out as I wouldn’t want someone to see the card before they get it.   I actually did a couple of different ones and really enjoy designing them.   I have also enjoyed looking at Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of Christmas.  He does an amazing job each day and I encourage you to go and check them out and find some inspiration in them.  

I just wanted to give you a quick  update of what’s been going on and promise that I will post again in the next week with some ideas and pictures of projects I’m working on.  Hoping to make some gift tags this weekend, finish some Christmas presents and I’m going over to my cousin’s on Saturday and we’re going to have a fun time making some candy for presents.  YUMMY!

What do you like to do this time of the year?  Where do you find inspiration?  What’s your favorite holiday memory?  Post a comment here to let me know.   I will try and post over the weekend and let you know how the candy making goes, so I hope that you come back and visit again.  Until then, have a great night and do something creative this weekend and enjoy the Christmas season.


Happy Halloween and Fall Back October 31, 2009

Trick or Treat

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy Halloween.  What do you do for Halloween?  Trick or Treating, a party or low-key night at home?  I just spent the evening with my friend and her family and went out trick or treating with her two boys.  It was a beautiful night in the 50’s.  Usually we’re freezing, so it was lovely to just have a sweatshirt on.  It was windy, so it gave you that “Halloween” feel with rain coming at some point overnight.  It was so much fun to see the boys dressed up and I love going out with them.   I used to go out with my godson, who’s now 16 and has moved on from trick or treating.  I hope that you had a safe and happy Halloween whatever you did and got your fill of your favorite candy.  For me it’s a toss-up between Hershey’s with almonds, Recess peanut butter cups (my sister’s favorite) and Kit Kats. 

Please don’t forget to turn the clocks back an hour tonight before bed.  Not my favorite thing to do as I hate coming home from work in the dark, but it’s part of fall, so we do it.
