Lookie What I Got For Christmas!!!

Wow! Can I just say that I must really love and appreciate all of you who read this blog. Not only am I doing a post using my mom's ancient PC while using terribly slow internet service {I am in West Virginia, remember?} but this post includes pictures!! Which took a lifetime and a half to upload and edit! My patience was running thin, but alas the job is done!

I wanted to share my favorite Christmas present this year with everyone. I've mentioned in this previous post that my mom is a professional scrapbooker {well, not really, but she should be!} Her scrapbooks are absolutley amazing, and browsing the pages of each one is something that never grows old to me.

This year, my mom was kind, thoughtful, and AWESOME enough to make a scrapbook for me to capture my favorite photographs and memories of Huckleberry. Here are a few pictures of the said scrapbook but  trust me, the photographs don't do the scrapbook justice. I just couldn't capture it's full cuteness! Basically, it's an 8x8 chocolate brown scrapbook with 20 pages already done by my mommy, just waiting for me to simply place my favorite photos inside!
Here are some of the pages inside. The detail is what makes it so perfect! Can't wait to put some pictures of my little boy in here!
Isn't it cute? I already know what pictures I'm going to use for most of these pages! I can't wait to get started on it :) And the best part is that it's a one of a kind! No one else will have a scrapbook quite like this one!

Are any of you interested in a giveaway that entails homemade greeting cards by my mom? Her cards are just as cute and original as the scrapbook above. If so, leave a comment and let me know! If I get enough interest, I would be happy to do a giveaway and my mom is more than happy to make the cards!

Have a lovely Tuesday, folks!

I worked at a scrapbook store in high school, and seeing scrapbook pages still makes me giddy with excitement :-) Your mom did an excellent job! It would be my favorite gift too :-)

Haha, you arent the only one I've read from this year, who went home for Christmas and had complaints about old computers or dial-up internet :D

That scrapbook is CUTE. It will be cuter when there are pictures of Huck in it!

That is so sweet! I KNOW firsthand that took a long time to make. I made one for my M-I-L a few years ago, complete with tons of family photos. She doesn't have her own camera and doesn't have any pics of her own unless someone gives them to her, so it was pretty special.

As someone who works with my hands for a living, I know it's the gift of time and heart more than money that goes into a gift like that. So sweet of your mom to do it. I'm sure you'll have fun filling up Huck's book. So cute!
