There were FOUR cameras flashing this Christmas, five if you count the times my DH handed the camera to my nephew...plus the video camera!

5. Tag 12 people and let them know by visiting their blogs and leaving a comment for them.
6. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve done it!
I have decided to go about this differently from what I've seen done before. I am only listing my birth month, I am not tagging anyone, as they have already been tagged recently. So here it goes...
OCTOBER: Loves to chat. Loves those who loves them. Loves to take things at the center. Inner and physical beauty. Lies but doesn’t pretend. Gets angry often. Treats friends importantly. Always making friends. Easily hurt but recovers easily. Daydreamer. Opinionated. Does not care of what others think. Emotional. Decisive. Strong clairvoyance. Loves to travel, the arts and literature. Touchy and easily jealous. Concerned. Loves outdoors. Just and fair. Spendthrift. Easily influenced. Easily loses confidence. Loves children.
Loves to chat: DUH!! Loves those who loves them: I can't agree, I don't love just because they love me, I love them because I feel love, it doesn't matter whether or not they love me. Loves to take things at the center: Don't know exactly what this means. Inner and physical beauty: It depends on who you ask, I don't think I have either of those. I am sure others will tell you I am beautiful, and other might tell you I am a great person. Lies but doesn't pretend: I do not consider myself a liar! I try not to lie, and I certainly don't pretend. I am very honest. I usually say what I am thinking, and I can't deal with the guilt of lying. Gets angry often: Yeah, I don't like this about myself. I inherited a strong family trait of explosive anger, sorry to say. Treats friends importantly: I try the best I can to make sure my friends know how I feel, and how important they are too me. I have a great heart, but have a difficult time showing it. Always making friends: This has always been hard for me. I don't know if they really "like" me, so I am often a bit stand-offish. I had some "friends" in HS, and they all wrote mean stuff in my yearbook, they were just pretending to be my friends. Who knows! Easily hurt but recovers easily: This is soooo true. It doesn't take much to hurt my feelings, but I am quick to recover and things continue as if nothing happened, at least on my part. Daydreamer: YES! Every teacher I ever had in school, told this to my parents. I got into lots of trouble doing this. I still suffer from this, but I enjoy it. Opinionated: Everyone has opinions. I try not to just throw my opinions around. I share them when appropriate, but a lot of times I try not to offend people or argue points. Does not care of what others think: I care what they think when it comes to my appearance, very low self-esteem (but sadly it doesn't help me take better care of myself though). I no longer care what they think of me when it comes to clothes, cars, where I live, etc. Emotional: Very emotional. I often let my emotions take over, I certainly don't control my emotions. Strong clairvoyance: Based on the description given to me just now, it means the abililty to see into the future...That is NOT me, I don't believe this is a good thing to do. Biblically this is evil. Don't get me wrong, I am not telling you what to do, this is just my opinion. Loves to travel, the arts and literature: I do love travel, though I really only get to travel in my car, and very seldomly. Arts, another DUH, my blog was created for my scrapbooking, lol. Literature, I don't enjoy reading, I can't finish a book to save my life, but I love the movies based on books, lol. Touchy and easily jealous: Touchy, definately. Easily jealous, sometimes. Concerned: About what? I worry constantly about stuff. I try to take other people's feelings into consideration. I worry about them all the time. Loves outdoors: I love nature. If I was in better shape, I would be more outdoorsy. I love the sounds of the forest, the ruggedness of the Oregon beach. Just and fair: It depends who you ask. I try to be fair to all. I treat all people the same way, I don't pass judgement based on physical traits. Spendthrift: I always look for the best deal. I shop at Winco-the CS sucks, you have to bag your own groceries, the store is not pretty, but it is cheap! I go to Jo-Anne's and Michaels with coupon in hand. There are things I spend frivilously on, but I try to be thrifty. Easily influenced: I try not to follow trends. Although, scrapbook trends I do follow! I find myself taking the advice of others quite quickly. Easily loses confidence: I have lost the confidence of other people, I have spilled some secrets in the past, and now people won't tell me any. I don't easily lose confidence in other people, I am to naive and trusting of others. Loves children: Definately! I wish I could have some of my own.

Deja Views, a matchbook album, I need to finish embellishing this.
Bind-It-All, mini book.Making Memories, wine bottle gift label.Technique Tuesday, an awesome card. Scenic Route, a gift card envelope. Boxer, a gift tag with a library card.
The food they served was yummo!! The employees just brought in stuff they made from home, and there was plenty to be had! They had door prizes, but none of us got any. I managed to not buy anything, but that was easy since I had no money!
The "shopping bags" were Christmas gift bags, which were very handy for storing the make and takes. They even wrote on the tags, "Merry Christmas Love (heart) Life's A Scrapbook
I am really glad I went, we had a blast!

UPDATE....we decided not to put the outside lights up after all. It was too cold and rainy, and we could save electricity too. I figure, if I am just putting up the lights for my neighbor to enjoy, she can put up her own lights and increase her electric bill. Sorry to disappoint everyone.
