Hey everyone! Happy first day of winter!! I just wanted to check in since it’s been pretty quiet around here. Phew, so much going on in our neck of the woods! Trying to catch up in my scraproom, getting ready for Christmas, and a lot of personal stuff. Since I haven’t done a lot of crafting, I wanted to share the cute little tool box I gave my team members for Christmas. It’s made out of the wood mount cases from Stampin’ Up! I got the pattern from Ronda Wade as part of a training class and knew I wanted to share it. The stamp set is a retired one from last year, but it’s one of those keeper sets that I’ll never get let go. I used some of the Festive Birthday Designer Series paper, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, Melon Mambo Baker’s Twine, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, White Perfect Accents, and Brights Enamel Shapes. So cute and perfect to carry adhesive, paper snips, bone folder and embellishments. Just put on a shelf in your space and grab it on your way to a class or retreat. I love it when things are organized…even if my room is in a shambles!! lol

Don’t forget that the year end closeout sale is still going on. You can still check off you wishlist with some huge discounts. Head over to my store here to place your order. When you use Hostess Code 7HXWJG3 and your order totals $40.00, I’ll send you a package of handmade cards. If your order is $60.00 or more, I’ll include a new embellishment from the Occasions Catalog that goes live January 4th. Those packages will go out the first week of January.

Well, I hope you have a great Christmas weekend. Enjoy this holiday season with family and friends as we celebrate the birth of Christ. After all, He is the Reason for the Season. Take care!
