Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with loved ones! I am getting up at 3 AM to board a 6 AM flight with all my family to Playa Del Carmen ~Mexico! We will be bringing in the New Year together in hopefully 85 degree weather! My children were so excited when they opened their snorkeling gear and we told them the great news! This was all made possible by my mother, who suggested to my Dad that he celebrate his 70th birthday with all his loved ones on a winter vacation! Nathan's reaction to the news was "Granddad, I love your birthday!"

We all agree!

I will be in touch in one week!

Blessings to you all in the New Year!

9 Days and counting!

Are you READY!!
It is so exciting! Christmas is just around the corner! I hope you are able to take a deep breath, and enjoy these days. How cute is this Count Down To Christmas!!? A customer made this with left over paper from a 6 page scrapbookiong class using Evensong! Don't you think she did a super job!?

Here is a picture of my 2008 card - or actually 100+ cards! Done and in the mail at last. I keep it simple since I have to make so many. I used December Word Puzzle!
Click on the link to get a view of the whole stamp set - I have great news if you want to get your hands on this fast! A customer ordered this super set TWICE by accident! You would be doing her a great favor if you want to purchase it from her. Email me and I will put you two in touch!

Sneak Peek!

We are going to create this ornament at Stamp Club on Wednesday! It was so much fun and I will be adding a picture of my children in the middle!
