A Very Merry Christmas to YOU!

Hello and Happy Holidays! I hope that you are enjoying time with your family and friends exchanging gifts and smiles! I was up very late last night finishing up cards for family and I still have a few things to do. I Skyped with my friend Eva for a bit and that was nice! I will get to see Daniel and Taylor along with my parents and brother and sister-in-law in a little bit. Andrew is supposed to stop by later and who knows who else! Christmas to me is not something that comes once a year it’s something that you experience all the time. It’s being grateful for what you have and spending time with the people that you love. I get to do that all the time, with my friends and all of you! Even if I don’t get to see certain people they know that they are loved and missed! Yes we celebrate Christmas once a year but I think that we should experience it all the time! Let’s try to remember that from now on!

I have a bunch of cards to share with you today. No lengthy descriptions, just the cards. There is one that is all Stampin’ Up! and the rest are things from other places. Two are CASES of a card that I have loved for quite a while. I hope that you enjoy them and I leave you with one picture at the end that is sure to put a smile on your face! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!! Thank you for all the time that you take take to share little bits of your life with me! Like I said, Christmas every day! 🙂

      Merry Christmas to you too! 🙂

  7. Merry Christmas Justin
    I really enjoyed your thoughts today. And you are so right.
    This Christmas has been a very difficult one for me and my family. My mom passed away Tuesday morning. It was very sudden and quite shocking.
    We are traveling to Cleveland today for the funeral.
    I am so glad that I visited your blog today, if your nothing else but for the picture at the end.
    Enjoy your day and be sure to love one another

    1. Merry Christmas Donna!
      Thank you! I think that it’s very important to spend as much time with the ones that we love as we can.
      I am truly sorry to hear about your mum. My deepest condolences to you and your family and safe travels.
      If the picture of Daniel made you smile even a little then I that’s why it was there.
      I had a nice day and I if you need anything let me know.
      Big hugs to you my friend.

  9. Wow, what a stunning gallery of cards, Justin! Love them all but if I would have to pick a favorite it would be the one with the photo frame and silver snowflakes. Just stunning! And that little Daniel is just too, too cute! Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you very much Sandy! I had so much fun making them all last night! The picture of Daniel was way too cute not to post! A very Merry Christmas to you too my friend! XOXO 🙂

      I had a lovely Christmas and hope that you did too! 🙂

  11. Merry Christmas Justin. Thank you for sharing your daily thoughts, family, friends and creative flair each day. Your wonderful cards has regenerated the stamping bug within me. I hope 2015 is a happy and healthy year for you and your family.

    1. Merry Christmas to you Theresa! Thank you for coming by to share everything with me! I am so glad that I have inspired you and I wish the same for you and your family! 🙂

  12. Merry Christmas Justin, I agree with your philosophy, love and appreciate your family and friends daily. Loved your cards as always, have a merry day :-).Donna my condolences, my father passed away Dec.5th, will miss having him for dinner this year.

    1. Merry Christmas to you too Lynne! Yes, we definitely have to love and appreciate all that we have! Thanks! I loved making the cards and I got to play with some new stuff! So sorry to hear about your dad. He is there with you always. 🙂

  13. I love all the cards, but you are so right. That last picture DID make me smile… BIG! What a cutie pie! Merry Christmas to you too Justin. I feel like I know you, even though we’ve never met. Maybe that will change with convention this year. That’s how I met Brian… But anyway, your blog gives us a lot to think about….. your creativity, and great cards and updates on New York,, etc etc. I hope you have a fabulous 2015 my friend!~ Andrew too!

    1. Thank you Bobbi! Glad you enjoyed the picture! A very Merry Christmas to you too! I love that I have all of my friends on here and that I get to share with you! I hope that we do get to actually know one another! I am so happy to have you along with me and here is to a great 2015! Andrew says thanks too! 🙂

  14. Hey Justin, these cards are all beautiful, every single one, you’ve outdone yourself! LOVE that photo frame (is that what Jan Tink would call rubbah-dultery? Lol) hope you have had a very special day with your family and friends, and that you had a chance to cuddle that gorgeous, chubby little Santa – so cute!! We had a nice day with my family, ate till we could eat no more, and then some…. We’re doing it all over again today with the in-laws! My son was very happy with his iPad and electric drum kit, you were right, electronic goodies hit the spot! Enjoy your time off Justin. Cheers, Kelly 🙂 xx

    1. Hello Kelly!
      Thanks very much! I had a great time making them! I had a nice day with my family and am glad that you did too! I spent lots of time with Daniel! He was quite the drummer! You can never go wrong with an iPad and who does’t like the drums?! I’m looking forward to not going to work tomorrow! LOL! XOXO 🙂

  15. Your numerous cards are downright beautiful! I just love the deer head! What fun! Is that some kind of camo diaper Daniel is wearing? I hope when he is older and sees all these photos of himself, he will appreciate how cute he was. Your sentiments in your intro message ring so true! If everyone knew how precious each life really is and acted accordingly, the world would be a better place. Puppy Pi played with her new cotton alligator and reindeer and had a full two days of people food, company, and excitement. She’s a cutie.
    I am so glad to know you. You are a very precious person. Tonight, the moon and stars are shining in the sky, and all seems so right and beautiful. Have a very lovely day and holiday time. Love, Nancy B

    1. Thank you so much Nancy! Yes, the deer head and the laurel were too good to pass up! My brother pixelated the picture so it makes the diaper look a little like a camo one! I hope that he enjoys the pictures of him when gets older as much as we have! LOL! We all need to pay more attention to the fact that we have limited time on this planet and we should make the most and best of every day! Aww, so glad that Puppy Pi is enjoying her surroundings!
      I too am glad to know you! Our chats me a lot to me! I look forward to your comments every day! I hope that you enjoy the rest of your holidays and yes, the sky was just perfect last night! Love and hugs!! 🙂

  16. Hi Justin! I hope you had a very merry Christmas! Love all of your cards in this post! Daniel is so cute…I’m sure Santa was VERY good to hime! Here’s to a happy and healthy 2015!

    1. Hey Karen!
      I did have a very nice Christmas and hope that you did too! So glad that you enjoyed my cards and that picture of Daniel! It was just too cute not to share! Santa was very good to him and everyone else! I hope that we all have a very happy and healthy 2015! 🙂

  17. Merry Christmas Justin. Thank you for sharing all your gorgeous creations with us. The final picture says it all…sheer pleasure and enjoying the simple things.

    1. Merry Christmas Marty! It is my pleasure to share with you! Thank you for coming by to see them, as always! Yes, simple pleasures are so often forgotten, we need to pay more attention to them! 🙂

  18. Glad to see you had a good and happy Christmas! Those cards are really stunning and that last photo of little Daniel running away with the lights is truly priceless….. but you are right he may not be so happy with uncle Justin in a few years. Lol. Enjoy the rest of the Holidays. Sleeping in is OK and good once in a while!

    1. Thank you Louise! I trust that your Christmas was good! I’m so happy that you enjoyed the cards and the picture of Daniel! I don’t think he will mind when he sees all the comments that go along with the picture! I hope that you enjoy the rest of your holidays too! Not a fan of sleeping in but it did feel good! 🙂

  19. I really do believe that you know how to live life as if everyday is Christmas! That’s why I *love* your blog SO much.

    Your cards are all stunning! Thanks for sharing them. And little Daniel is just precious and a reminder that it’s the simple things that are enduring and that fill our hearts with joy and excitement.

    1. I do try to appreciate every day! I love the people that are around me and that includes you!I had so much fun making the cards and yes, Daniel and all the little ones are what Christmas is all about! 🙂
