birthday gifts

Happy Saturday morning everyone! I thought I would share a couple of things that I got for my birthday on Thursday. If you haven't already make sure you enter to win some birthday candy.

Alright so first you see is my two new pieces for my Dicken's Village! Todd and the boys got them for me. The one to the right is Regent Street Coffee House. Isn't the clear top on it just wonderful? The other piece is St. Stephen's Chapel. Gorgeous, huh? My plan is to decorate part of my island's upper counter with these at the holidays. I think these will be my first decorations out each year.

The final picture is the fun package that Todd's parents sent to me. It has a beautiful package of 12x12 Debby Mumm papers from JoAnn Fabrics, some fun markers, a couple of handmade gifts, and a checkbook sized Bible for my purse. Pretty cool, huh? My dad and his wife got me some wonderful fall smelling candles. And from my third family (family can be complicated sometimes, huh?) I got a gift card to use in Hawaii...woohoo! PLUS...a couple of my super cool friends sent me SNSS gift certificates...can I get another woohoo!?! I told y'all that I'm totally spoiled right? This just goes to prove it!

I'm still stuck on my card (that was due last night) but I've had a thought or two overnight as to what to do with it so..........I'm off to work on it!

Make sure you stop back tomorrow for my Page Plans card of the week! Have a super weekend everyone!

I've always thought it would be fun to start collecting a little village. I have the perfect area for it! What great gifts. I recently learned that Joanne's sell the Debbie Mumm product. I didn't know she was into scrapbooking now. I can hardly wait to go check it out! I love her products
