Snowed Under?

Hey, are you snowed under with Christmas preparations? Feeling the stress? Waiting in anticipation for family to arrive and the festivities to begin? Well, if your ready or not Christmas is only 4 days away! Can you believe it? Where has the year gone? 

Don't panic, just prop your fuzzy socks up on that hassock, with your little glass of wine, good book or movie, and warm cozy fire beckoning and just relax and let's chat for a few minutes.

Today, I am working on some gifts for you~ my Club Hostesses. Hope you will like them! And you will be getting your new Seasonal Expression 1 Catalog!!!! It's a doozy!

Tomorrow, my grandaughter is coming to help me decorate cookies. She wanted to come anyway to do something else, which that event is a mystery to me so, I thought while she is here we can do the cookies together. Looking forward to hanging out with her.

Sunday night we hope to be in Ohio for Grandson's Church Program. We will spend the night and drive back on Christmas Day to eat lunch with Hubby's Mom and siblings.

Then, the next few days we will be getting ready for our Christmas with our family New Years weekend so I am not too stressed yet. Should I be? What will the next few days be like for all of you?

Gearing up for the New Year and events coming up! 

Looking forward to our All Day Crops that will be hosted by Vicki in January, February, March and April. They will be at Leesburg Lions again on the following dates.

January- 9 Tues.
January- 27 Saturday
February- 13 Tues.
February- 24 Saturday
March- 13- Tues.
March 24- Saturday
April 10- Tues
April 28- Saturday

The cost will be $10 for the day.  Pay at the door.  You may bring your lunch or go out to eat.  If the weather is  somewhat nasty,we will let you know if Vicky will bring soup for the day with you bringing something to share.  If the weather is very nasty, it will be cancelled.  We will email closer to the date so we can know how many will be coming.

So sorry...........


Did I say I would post every day? 

I got caught up with Saturday's Craft Sale, driving through the snow and on horrendous roads, hauling stuff in to the house and up the stairs and plopping in to bed. Twas so exhausting! 

Then, Sunday, we went to church and I got extremely tired in service, so, after coming home and fixing Hubs a salad, I went to bed~clothes and all and slept awhile. Got up and started working on projects for Christmas gifts and totally forgot this project. Our Son and 3 grand kids came for while also and that is always a distraction for me. 

Monday we traveled to Ohio for our grandson's Christmas Concert then drove back home that night. 

Tuesday, Hubs took the day off and we went to Shipshe and Goshen shopping. Again, we traveled through snow and "ugh" roads. Had a great day together and ate buffet at Essenhaus. We haven't ate there for years and were amazed at the change in the place and Yoders Dept. store. Obviously, were not Shipshe goers. Needless to say my days slipped by. 

So, here is the deal of the day..............

Friday already?

Oh dear! It's Friday and it's 5:00 p.m. already!!!! Where has my day gone????
Another late night (rather early morning) to bed, late getting up, went for a massage then home to work on projects again.

The day went very fast and here I am behind on the next Blog post! I will make this quick and show you what I am making. These will make really fun Stocking Stuffers for teachers, Mom, Grandma, and any other person on your list you give a little gift too.

The top two are made with coasters in the center, lots of retired papers and using the Cricut for the designs. I used the Flower Market, Art Phylosophy, and bought a couple from Cricut. Click here to see where you can get the little calendars   Calendar Pads.

This is just a covered coaster with a Post It Note and ribbons on the clip. I did stamp a bit on it. You can decorate these however you want to.

I don't remember where I got the coasters, but, if you google plain coasters you should be able to find them. 

Well, that's it for today. Just don't forget the Calendar Kit is only available this month and it's flying off the shelves, so if your thinking you wanted one or more ya better order it real soon.

It's Hump Day!

Hope your day is going great! Were starting a cold streak here. After a very warm October and November this will be like a culture shock. LOL! 

I know I have already featured the December campaign but I am going to feature it here today for Day 3 and 4 for a couple of reasons. One, because it would make a great Christmas gift and two, I am offering a FREE workshop to get them done plus now there is another workshop we can do to make extra pages to match the calendar ones to make two page layouts for your album. Wow, that was a lot of words!!!! Purchase your kit or kits, and we can do them in January or if you want to work on them so their done for Christmas, we can get together.

is coming! It's right around the corner! So, I would like to hopefully help your shopping go a little easier if you or the people on your list that love to "make pretty things out of paper" (think gifts you make or gifts they can make for themselves)or what about our quality albums and page protectors they can just put their photos in. 

I wanted to do another 12 days of Christmas, but, here it is day 5 already. Maybe I could start one anyway and show some things I have made for Stocking Stuffers. I want to show you ideas of items you can make and have some sale items too as the days fly by. Let's make this Day 1 and 2 or we are going to run out of shipping time for Christmas..........

You will want to email me your order each day if you choose to take advantage of the specials and on Day 13 or Dec. 13 I will tally up your totals. Check in everyday for your specials and you will have until 9 pm each day to get me your order.

Little boxes made from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge. On page 19- 3D Object. In the Cricut Design Space I cut it at W-7.56 x H-9.973 out of different papers. The tiny mug came from the Artistry Cricut Cartridge on page 5 -Icon 2 cut at W- 1.36 x H- 1.377. The background behind the mug is from the windows of the boxes. The tag was cut from the Art Phylosophy (retired) and stamped with this stamp set. If you have this cartridge, there are several designs for tags and you can choose which you like the best. 

The Thought that Counts

Don't have the Art Phylosophy? You can cut the tags with this Thin Cut Tag Set.

  The big day is only two days away? What are you doing for Thanksgiving Day? What are you thankful for? 
   First of all, I am thankful and grateful to a Risen Lord and what He did for me. Grateful for the Creator and His creation. He shows us in so many ways how much He loves us. I am grateful for family and friends. For children, grandchildren and my dearly beloved hubby. For good health!
   Hubby and I will be spending the day to ourselves since everyone seems to have other plans but, since we enjoy each other it doesn't matter. Thinking about going to watch the movie Wonder and maybe find a restaurant that will be open. 

I hope everyone has a blessed day with your families!
I also wanted you all to know that something exciting is coming on Friday and Monday so stay tuned!!!!!!!
