Our First Snowfall

Can you hear the screaming of happy children???? I woke up last week to discover it was snowing. I ran upstairs and woke up both boys, it was about 6:30 am, and told them to follow me immediately! They were both sound asleep and not to happy with me as I opened the sliding door and pushed them outside...until they realized it was snowing! It was their first time seeing a snowfall and you should have heard the screaming of delight! Nicholas had a snowman built by 6:45 and it was all of 8" high :) Practically took all the snow we had that day! It was wonderful to see them enjoy the snow!!!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I thought I would show you a few pictures of what has been going on around here. We had a fantastic time enjoying Thanksgiving with both our families; first time in many, many years. The kids were so excited to get back home to start the Christmas decorating. Nicholas helped Dad put the lights up on the house. Benjamin used the Lights and Sounds of Christmas to coordinate the playing of the music to the blinking of the lights on the house. Man is that music ever loud; our poor neighbors far they like it but I have been making the boys turn the music down.

I can't line these pictures up correctly but you'll get it just fine!

Card and Paper Bow

I love this flip top card closed with a Basic Gray magnetic closure. You can use this for a money card or a gift card also. I also tried my hand at making a bow. It was SO EASY!! The directions are on splitcoaststampers tutorials. This would make such a cute package with a matching box.

Christmas Card Class

These are the cards for the Christmas card class tomorrow night. I was fortunate enough to have 6 people sign up for the class at the craft show I did last week. I also got a booking for December 1st. I was so excited to book a show that I forgot it was on the same day the boys have their Christmas piano recital...I thought that date sounded familiar :)

Peppermint Favor Boxes

2-4-6-8 boxes for my Christmas card class favors with those cute little peppermint snowflakes.

Hershey Nugget Boxes

Two of the styles of Hershey nugget boxes I am offering. Each holds 3 candies covered in Dashing Designer Series Papers. Too bad the glitter doesn't show up in the photo.

Holiday Gift Tags

Working on a few Holiday gift tags for the craft show this Tuesday and Wednesday at H.P. On the left is the Purely Pomegranate paper with the new Holiday Harmony Designer Paper. The right picture is using the Dashing Designer Paper. How much would you pay for a tag? Any ideas on pricing?? The largest ones are about 2"x 3" and the smaller ones are about 2".
