What a YEAR!!!

Slow down?!?!? What was I THINKING?!?! Goodness, it's been quite a month! And tomorrow's New Year's Eve!! And Monday, I leave on a cruise for the Bahamas! AUGH! ::Slowing breathing:::

SO. I will say HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!! I'm SO grateful for all of you who have lived this year with me, who encourage me, who make me laugh AND cry. You are blessings, each and every one of you, and I appreciate you, SO much.

I am going to TRY and get up a Show-&-Tell for the time I'm gone. No explanations, no recipes, just a project each day. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments, so I have something to write about when I come home! :D

This year we're going to try classes in a different way; if you're on my newsletter list, I'll be sending out the explanation of January's, which will be on JANUARY 22, in the afternoon. I hope you'll plan to come stamp with me!

Also, Sale-a-Bration starts JANUARY 25!!!! Stampin' Up! had some issues with their mailing selector, so I have to hand-send every mini for both Occasions and SAB. If you want one of each, PLEASE let me know - and I'll be having a drop-in mini open house when I get home, so you can pick them up and save me a stamp and envelope. :D

OK. Time to get started scheduling these posts! I hope you like what you see! :D Here's to 2011: blessings beyond measure, stronger faith in God's love for each of us, and the strength to walk that out!

Cake ball on a stick! :D

Hey, y'all! Another quick post - it doesn't need to be very long! :D This is from our GIFTS FROM THE ♥ class. It's a cake ball on a stick, coated with white chocolate and gingerbread person sprinkles, and then packaged quite cutely. :D

I really love the GOT TREATS stamp set that this little saying is from. :) It's a great set, even if you don't have the mini milk carton die it's created to go with!

OK, I'm outta here. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me! :D

Have a WONDERFUL day, and be SURE to take the time to STAMP something!

Try this!

I'm so sorry I haven't been very good lately about posting; I will try to remedy that, I promise. But for today, here's a fun idea: it's a tealight candle sleeve!

We did this for HOME & HEARTH this year; I really had fun with it! :D The set is FIRESIDE CHRISTMAS from the Holiday Mini. We stamped it on Whisper White, then colored it in with various Stampin' Write markers. We put the whole ting together wth jump rings, so it folds up easily, doesn't have to worry about scoring or anything. The fireplace is cut out, and the fire is stamped again on vellum and colored, then punched out and adhered behind the opening.

Isn't it fun? Very pretty, a very nice gift, and it just says "warm Christmas" to me. :)

OK, I'm outta here - still finishing up my Christmas cards, and baking like a mad woman for the open house this Sunday! If you're local, you're invited! I'll post the invite tomorrow. :)

Have a wonderful day, and be SURE to take the time to STAMP something! :)
