Two Crazy Crafter's Night Before Christmas

Two crazy crafters the night before Christmas all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar kissed ideas danced in their heads.


They went all through the house looking for glitter
They snipped and glued and sprinkled with sugar.



They wanted to remain in a sense of vintage,
So they crafted and created with a sweet old image.
They valued the old
More precious than gold.
And hoped to share more than they could hold.


Snuggled under afghans with hot chocolate and whipped cream
They drifted away with their thoughts and their dreams.



They remembered Christmases past with Barbie dolls and cookie jars,
Sweet teddy bears and Hot Wheel cars.




Treasured memories old and new,
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year, too!

Love to All! Twyla and Lindsey

Hi girls. It's so fun to see your blog. I just can't quit eeewing and awing over all the pretties!

I wanted to stop in and thank you Lindsey for you're cheery cute tag I received from Elizabeths Christmas Tag Swap. All those adorable snowman images with the crepe paper reminds me of my childhood. What precious memories I think of when I look at these wonderful tags.

I just love your blog. I don't know why I wasn't a follower already but am certainly happy to be one now.

Also thank you both for sharing all these beautiful cards on your blog. I love them all.

Here's a question if you don't mind. I don't have a good printer now (or a economic one to use). Do you use anything special? I'd love to know.

Thanks and Merriest of Christmas to you both. Hugs....Tracy :)
