Stampin' Up! Christmas 3-D Swaps!
Stampin' Up! Retiring Holiday Catalog!!

Stampin' Up! What's Carol Been Up To?

Hey there! What have I been up to? I've been busy busy, but not stamping. I belong to a women's prayer group at church called Ladies Friendship Circle that meets monthly. Earlier this year I volunteered to host the Christmas meeting at my house. Now, I have stampers in for classes every month, and my family is here several times a week, but for a Christmas gathering you kind of need to up your game a little bit, ya know? So every day this week, Monday through Thursday, someone has helped me dress the house for Christmas. Monday it was Maddie Kate & Ava, my two oldest granddaughters. They decorated my tree. Tuesday Alisa hung lights all over my dining room/living room. Wednesday Logan and his best girl, Faith, helped dress the rest of the house with my collection of Christmas decor, and Logan helped Mark put up lights outside. Thursday Mark helped with general cleanup to put the finishing polish to the house. I couldn't have done it all without my sweet family's help! Oh, I think I forgot to mention I babysat Darcy Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, with Darcy's first dentist visit on Monday, Tuesday School on Tuesday, and Dance/Tumbling Classes on Wednesday!

Here's my little nest:


I know it's a humble abode, but this is the place where I raised all 6 of my babies and the place where my grandchildren play on cold or rainy days. We gather here almost every Sunday after church for lunch and then relaxing together!

Merry Christmas to all of you!


You are so blessed to have family so close. Wonderful to hear you get together after Church on Sundays. Very special. Have a Merry Christmas

Carol Payne

Thank you both for your kind words. I feel it is important to be "real" and admit I'm not a superwoman, but a child of God who needs the help of friends and family sometimes. And yes, it is sweeter that several of my family can feel good know they helped make the pretty decorations happen!

Wonderful to hear you are a woman of prayer - this old world sure needs us! lovely to have your family around too! I'm so thrilled that my kids and their families love to be with us and we can help with them just the way you do. We are indeed blessed!


Isn't it wonderful when your family all pitches in to get ready to celebrate the Christmas Season? It is a lot of work to get ready but oh it is priceless when your family and friends get together and you all enjoy the beauty!!! The picture you posted is so pretty! Merry Christmas to you & your family!
