Where is the time flying?!?

Shew, what a BUSY weekend! Those of you who managed to make it to the Open House, THANK YOU for coming - I hope you enjoyed coming as much as we enjoyed hosting you! :)

On with the show!

Do you LOVE our holiday-themed Decor Elements, but don't want to use them for one season, then have to destroy them? Try this!

I LOVE this "Dasher" Decor Element - a level 2 hostess benefti - but I didn't want to have to take him off wherever I put him and have to throw him away!

So, I purchased a cheap poster frame just big enough for him - and I wish I'd kept my eye out for one during garage sale season! :D I threw away the frame part, and we drilled two small holes for the ribbon to feed through.

I cleaned off the acrylic piece and put down the DE. I cut a piece of Polka Dotted Real Red Grosgrain ribbon to hang it with, and tied the knots on the back to hold it in. Then, I tied a pretty bow and cut the ends on the diagonal, and stuck it on Dasher with a pop-up glue dot.

SUPER easy, and I just LOVE him!!!!! Now, he can last until the acrylic breaks into pieces. :D

OK, I'm off to ICE at Gaylord Opryland - the theme is Charlie Brown this year, and I can't wait to see it! :D Lee and Corrine are with us until Wednesday morning, and I plan to enjoy each moment. :)

Have a WONDERFUL day - and don't forget to MAKE the time to stamp SOMEthing - we did! :D
