Candy Cane Fridays!

Happy Holidays!

I have been a little behind in posting lately, but extra busy with work and holidays. I wanted to share a direct link to a wonderful blog that I follow of some creative gals from California. They routinely post videos on youtube and howcast and also have an etsy store for kits and thier handmade items. Each friday from now until Christmas they are posting videos for Christmas crafts. I found a few great ideas here....

Check it out, they are silly and have a lot of fun, but most of all really creative.

I also was passed a link to Ribbon Addicts Sticky Sale...for all your red tape needs, at affordable prices be sure to check it out:

Another fantastically creative gal.

So, I feel like I should catch everyone up on basic life goings on for me. I had a great time hosting my first Open House Stamp Camp on Nov 30th and I am so grateful to everyone who turned out. We made 10 projects! Whew! But now everyone seems ready with Stocking Stuffers, except me! I need to get some creative time. i also put together a schedule for January of my events, and they include a card buffet on January 11, Stamp Club on Jan 20, and Techniques class on Jan 25. Stay tuned for updates.

After the pain of losing our beloved Scotia this October, Keith and I have been looking in the animal shelters for a new friend, and this week we found one that we put the adoption papers on... His name is Smithers, and we are waiting for the okay from the shelter and hopefully he will be ours by Dec 19th. His pic is at the top of this post. Cross your fingers for us, we feel having a new kitty to love will help fill the house back up. I know Scotia is smiling at us for giving another homeless kitty a home. I still miss her so much.
Other than that I am generally behind schedule for the holidays, working very hard long hours lately, and getting ready for a trip this week for work. I am hopeful that after this trip, things work wise might become easier.
I am enjoying being involved with Stampin Up, and all of the great ideas I am getting access to and the gals who I am meeting.
I went to a wonderful dinner tonight with some gals from the SouthSouthJerseySandScrappers yahoo group, for the holidays. If you are on yahoo and local to our area, you should join this group of creative ladies. Lots of great sharing of ideas, and classes offered. These gals have really been great friends, and are so creative!
Not much else to report. I hope your holiday plans are going well, and I hope to see you at a class or event in January.

  1. I'm happy you're getting another kitty. I can't believe his name is Smithers. That's ridiculous. Will he expect tea and crumpets in his bowl?
