What's on My List?

There's nothing that keeps me warmer in the winter than a great scarf. I can't get enough of them. I think I have 4 that I wear on a regular basis and they're all fabulous. I even wear them in the house because my poor little neck just needs that extra coverage. This beauty was our gift to Brynne's bus driver.... I'm kicking myself for giving it away! I did make sure to get some cute photos of it though. The colors are very "me"... totally match my living room!

Did I Say Last? It's Really Never Ending

I have a few more holiday tricks up my sleeves. The director of my daughter's preschool loves my lunch boxes so I was thrilled when she came back to me to order 3 more lunch boxes for holiday gift giving. These are for teenage girls so I hope I captured what would interest them.

The Last of the Holiday Gifts

A BIG THANK YOU to all of my wonderful clients (both new and returning) who made this year my best ever! I have been working up to the last minute to get all of my orders done and I'm happy to say that my last items for the holidays shipped this afternoon.

Above: GRANDKIDS album for a new client... I hope she loves it! The colors are just so rich!

I must add, there is no greater feeling (ok, there are greater feelings but bear with me) than walking into the post office with 8 people in line and putting your boxes on the counter and simply saying "these are already paid for" and walking out. Priority Mail people! I also usually have the boxes picked up at my door but I wanted to get them out bright and early today.

The 2nd Grandchildren Album:

We can't leave out a favorite Aunt:
This album was definitely one of my most recent favorites. I used many Dream Street papers on the Happy Scrappin Scrapbooking website where I am a design team member so I will definitely be posting this album to my design team in January!

You Know You Wanted to See These!

I was commissioned by a friend to make 3 name albums. I gave you a peek at the first one and here are the other 2. I hope these 3 gals enjoy their gifts.

My holiday gifts are quickly heading out to their destinations and, I must say, this has probably been my most successful year yet! Thanks to all of my regular clients and new clients who have joined me this year.

A reminder: I am on Facebook. Search for Jeune Girl Crafts and join my Fan Page. I'm hoping to be even bigger and better in 2010. I will be revamping my website and combining all of my arenas under one big top. Between scrapbooking, digitial creations, and photography I'm hoping to expand my horizons in 2010 and I would love for you all to join me on this great ride.

Now I need to finish up my own gifts for the various people in our lives and I will be relaxing and enjoying the rest of 2009.

This Elf has been Busy!

These 2 layouts were made for the Happy Scrappin Scrapbooking design team that I am proud to be a part of. Every month I get to shop for goodies in their store and make some pretty awesome creations. I love their selection!

Cute lunch box that is currently in residence on my desk in the kitchen. I will be using it to hold holiday photos (or sell it on Ebay... hee hee)

And one of 3 name albums I made for a returning client. These colors just pop and I hope Miss Kaiya loves her album.

Check out this HAT!

I can't say enough about the quality of these hand made hats by my friend, and fellow scrapper, Abbie. She has been featured on my blog from its earliest days as one of my main sources of inspiration. I don't know how she does it all... she's an amazing scrapbooker, photographer, and knitter.

She recently hooked me up with one of these little gems and I can't wait to use it in my own photography. She promises quick turnaround so you could even get one in time for Christmas! I know that my oldest daughter wants one now (the one I have fits my 4 year old) so I will be placing my own order soon!

Name Albums Make Great Gifts!

Each one of these is 100% unique and they make great coffee table books in which to display your favorite photos.

This is the second year in a row that these have been my best selling item.

Holiday Card Templates

I've been splitting time lately between taking pictures, doing digital scrapbooking and photo editing, as well as traditional scrapbooking. These are a few more holiday card templates I've come across so if you need a neat holiday card, let me know!

The Triplets

That is the name I've dubbed the albums I've been working on for the last few days since my return from overseas. A returning client loved her SISTERS album so much that she wanted 3 more to give to her sisters and she wanted them all similar to the one she had. Luckily, the paper I used on the original came from a set with very similar papers. So they are not exactly the same (which hold true to my vow to make 100% unique designs) but I think they are close!

Back in the Saddle.

I was out of town this week with my husband enjoying a second (ok, third) honeymoon. We spent the week in Ireland.... a true dream come true for me. Now I am back and staring at a stack of name albums to be created as well as that 30 page order that I vow to finish this week. Not to even mention the digital photos and other photo "stuff" I have to do. I will be VERY busy for the next few weeks but loving every second of it!

Start Spreading the News.....

Congratulations to the 2009 World Series Champions... my New York Yankees have done it AGAIN. So proud of them. In an odd sense of timing... check out this project a client ordered in which she'll be putting photos of her upcoming trip to my hometown.
