CHRISTMAS IN JULY!

I was saddened that a lot of my Christmas lovers couldn't come to class on Saturday; we had a GREAT time! It was nice and COOL, too, so all the windows were open; we listened to Christmas music, sang along, and just enjoyed things. :D

I think you're going to like the projects, too; no SPECIFIC instructions, although I might make the basket for a video tutorial. I know I still owe y'all one on the purses, too. It's just DOING it, and finding the time when it's QUIET around here, has been difficult lately. :D

OK. On with the show! Don't forget! Sunday starts the next BLOG TOUR! Check out the side bar for details - and I WILL have blog candy!!!

Be SURE and check out this week's SUMMER FUN SPECIAL; it's a GREAT deal!!!!!

This box is the perfect size to hold some trial-size hand creams, maybe some chocolate - you'll be surprised! :D It's double-sided, so it looks like a coke bottle carrier. If you REMEMBER those.... :D
