One of my favorite photos of us :D

I just love this shot. And It's on some of our Christmas photo cards. What do you think? Those of you who know us, what do you think of what it says about us?? :D And here's the link to our Christmas newsletter!P.S. I've just started with and can't wait to see what it's like! :D

Thank you! :D

Several of you have inquired about our heat; it took two days to fix, but it's BACK! :D And the sun porch is now heated, too. :D So it's much easier to enjoy sitting out there in whatever weather - although yesterday's 70+-degree weather was something else!

ANYWAY. :D You'll want to know about THIS!

From December 15, 2011, through January 5, 2012, nearly 200 products are being added to the Clearance Rack in the Online Store--with some discounted up to 80 percent!

What a GREAT opportunity to get some things you've been wanting but haven't been able to grab! Now, remember: first come, first served - so if you try to add it to your cart and it won't go, it's because it's sold out and they haven't had a chance to pull its description yet. :)

Just go to my business site, and click on SHOP NOW in the top right-hand corner. If you don't go thru my blog, I don't get your sales! :D

Please note: Within the Online Store, in the Clearance Rack Blitz category, there will be some identical punches that have two different item numbers; this is because we are using inventory from both our American and our European warehouses. We will indicate which punches this affects in the product description.

OK, I've got to run - tonight is our school's Christmas program, and I have baking to do, and and and! :D Peace to all!!! Now, go STAMP something - I'm assembling between words. :D

Baby, it's cold INSIDE!

Woke up this morning and went down to the studio - and the heater's BROKEN! Hopefully they'll be able to fix it this afternoon - but was it COLD. :D

So. Sunday was the open house, and boy! was it FUN!!! We had LOTS of people here; if you didn't make it, you sure missed out. I was so glad to see a few of you who haven't been able to be around much the past year. I hope, if you weren't able to come this year, you'll come next!

Here's a quick share - I'm working for someone else right now, so I have to be able to answer the phone any time - that we did at our hostess party last month. (I really love how it turned out!)

Isn't it pretty? I really love the Holly Berry DSP - you can still order it, but only for a few more weeks! The same with the stamp set, THE SOUNDING JOY. The world that I punched out? It's from WORD PLAY - and I've really enjoyed using it this way! :) Isn't the ribbon pretty, too? It just is all very simple, but it all came together beautifully. In *my* humble opinion, anyway.... :D

OK, I'm outta here so I can be ready to say, "Hello!" :D I'm going to TRY to get caught up with the 10 Weeks emails this weekend. I know what I want to do, but time and cameras just don't coordinate!

I'd love to hear from you. I'm kinda lonely. :D

Have a WONDERFUL day! Be sure and take the time to STAMP something!!!

Are you getting excited about Christmas, or just exhausted? :D I don't know about you, but this first weekend is a killer. ROFL!!! Are you coming to visit me Sunday????

OK. Last project from IT'S A WRAP, as promised!

Again, the DSP is from Frostwood Lodge. The tree stamp's from LOVELY AS A TREE; "Season's Greetings" is from MANY MERRY MESSAGES. We made the scalloped edge with circle punches cut in half. I love Cherry Cobbler - it's SUCH a pretty color! :D

Well, today was also a teaching day plus meetings, so if I have survived, and if I survive the weekend, I'll see you Monday! :D

December!! First day on my countdown calendar! :D

I love the countdown calendar I made years ago. It's cross stitch; it's not straight, and there are some dropped stitches, but I made it. I love pulling out the little ornaments each day to decorate the tree with the stitched elves, waiting until I get to pull out the Baby Jesus ornament. Nothing like anticipation, I'm telling you!

Anyway. :D Here's another project from our IT'S A WRAP class: a cute little gift bag!

Isn't it CUTE?? That's DSP from the Frostwood Lodge DSP package; the tag is from TAGS TIL CHRISTMAS. We cut the strip of Garden Green card stock with the Top Note die, then punched it with the scallop lace trim punch. Cute, cute cute!!!

One more day this week! Come back for the last project from the IT'S A WRAP class! :D Have a wonderful day, and be SURE to take the time to STAMP something!!!
