On the 8th Day of Christmas..

I'm sssoo sorry for the lack of posting. I'm gearing up for a craft show on saturday and am just a tad stressed to the gills.

This will be 1 item I am selling.

The poem that I am taping to the bar of fudge says:
Dashing from the malls
With groceries yet to buy,
Lessons, work and housecleaning,
Life's so crazy! Why?

Bells on our telephone ring,
The machine will take the call,
We have not time for family or friends,
It drives us up the wall.

How are you? How's your life?
We really want to know.
Hope you're ready for Christmas,
Now maybe it will snow.

A day or two ago,
We thought we'd make a treat,
For all our special friends-
A Christmas gift to eat.

Our intentions were top notch,
But our schedules would not budge,
Hence, here's this year's edition
Of homemade Christmas Fudge¦

Today's special: 10% off any Christmas stamp set!

On the 7th Day of Christmas

Sorry about not posting yesterday, time just escaped me!

Reindeer Food:

The back says:
Just a Sprinkle on the lawn at night.
The moon will make it sparkle bright.
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam,
This treat will guide them to your home.

After a craft fair last year, I had a couple of bags left and handed those out to coworkers who had children and grandchildren. Well this year, they and others came to me to order some! Isn't that wonderful!?

Should you want to order any, they retail for $1.50. Feel free to email me with your order.

Today's special: receive 10% off any Christmas stamp set!

Thanks for looking!

The 6th Day of Christmas

Alright ladies, I am halfway through my 12 Days of Christmas.

The infamous UGG Boot! HHHhhmmm...I don't know how convinced I am myself about it. I tried keeping the sole ofthe shoe flat but I'm thinking the roundedness of the toe doesn't do it justice.

I'll be giving this to my mom with this gift card holder in it.

This is a basic trifold card with my dimensions being 5-1/4 x 10-1/2, scored at 3-1/2and 7.

I used From the Kitchen Of to create my gift certificate and instead of using one of the categories from that set, I opted for She's All That.

The gift certificate is valued at an afternoon of shopping with moi, lunch and $x's. Hope she likes it because I do!

Thanks for looking!

The 5th Day of Christmas


So sorry about no post yesterday, I had intended on uploading something when I got back from work but we ended up going to see Max Payne and time just escaped me!

I'll continue with the countdown today. I'm uploading this picture first but come back later to see my UGG boot!

A couple of things first. I got the template here, free! My intention had been to put a CD or something similar into it but it really is too small, which disappointed me a tad but this will be perfect for giftcards!

Seriously, I'm always a tad let down when I find a giftcard inside a card. I want a pretty box, something to open and this is a great alternative and it only uses 1.5 pieces of cardstock.

My special for today is: buy all 6 in-color ink pads and receive 1 ink pad free!

Thanks for looking!

The 4th Day of Christmas

This is my 2nd post for today, so scroll down if you'd like to see my submission for Kristina's Color Challenge!

Talk about being on a creative spree. I feel like I've been going non-stop which is funny because I wanted a break from classes, etc. this month!

I'll be in a craft fair next weekend and in November, these went like hotcakes! So, I figured I'd create a whole other family of patties.

Meet Santa's Family! Santa, a very helpful elf and Rudolph.

and this is how I will be packaging them!

Did you notice Rudolph's nose? Yup, glittered!! I used retired Dazzling Diamonds, it really adds that certain touch to him. His antlers were made using the tabs punch.

Very cutesy and great gifts for those coworkers who you aren't super close with.

My special today is: buy any of the punches and coluzzle and you'll receive 10% off your total. Just a small reminder that I need all orders submitted to me 8 PM Eastern time.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kristina's Challenge #33

It must be something about this weather because recently all I've wanted to do is hole up in my craft room and create.

Thanks to Kristina, we, creaters, are allowed to utilize her graphic for these fun color challenges so this was the inspiration.

This is what I came up with. I had this very distinct vision of what I wanted to create but new that nothing I had at home would do so I stopped at Archivers on my way home today.

I picked myself up some paper and stickers from Sassafrass Lass yet hardly used any of it! The flourish I drew by hand and then pierced. I think one of these tags is missing with a sentiment. Hhhmmm...something else to add to the wish list!

oooppppssss...I'm just now realizing that my very vanilla is actually supposed to be certainly celery. wtf!? how did i miss that?! can i blame it on my work computers poor monitor? oh well... c'est la vie.

I'm thinking of saving this card for Vday and using it for my man. I like the heart and how that girlies it up but the colors are so very manly.

Thanks for looking!

The 3rd Day of Christmas

Have a stash of left over ribbon and not quite sure what to do with it? how about a ribbon topiary!

I used all the scraps of real red, chocolate chip, whisper white, very vanilla and wasabi ribbon to make my tree.

Fairly simple, I started off by painting my terracotta pot in gold. While that was drying I wrapped chocolate chip ribbon around dowel. The most time consuming part was probably the ball. Oh. My. Word. I think it took me about 4 to 5 hours!

But it's cute and I get plenty of compliments on it!

Today's special is: buy $25 worth of ribbon and receive a pack of Designer Brads free!

Don't forget I need all orders in my inbox by 8 PM tomorrow night. I will hold off on ordering to combine shipping until the 13th!

Thanks for looking!
