Once again, my post is going up with no pictures!
Hooray... ***edited to add photos!!
Thank you for all who hopped early
and I'm sorry for the photo delay...

I have a Kodak Digital camera and every time I push the button to take a picture, it turns itself off and on and goes back to the "reset time and date" screen... has anyone else ever had this problem with a camera?

The battery is fully charged and I can't figure out how to fix it 
without taking it to an (expensive) camera shop!

The Kodak website was no help either...

It's too dark to use my cell phone tonite, so maybe, 
if the sun makes an appearance tomorrow, I can try that, 
but for now, I'm photo-free! 
Silly bugger turned right on this morning and I was able to snap a few shots
before it started the on-off-on-off game...

Maybe Santa will throw a new one under the tree this year! ;)

and the Drum from the "Santa's Visit" set from
to make this adorable gift for my Secret Santa at The Crafter's Cafe.
She has not received it yet, but I think she'll be happy when she does!

{at least I hope so!!}

Next stop by Ali's blog, to see what she has in store for you today.

And if you get lost along the way, here is the list:
