a little ‘christmas past’ sneak peek

I feel like I should be in a Santa shop somewhere right now.
Not only am I busy creating Christmas goodies, but I’m feeling that Christmas spirit!

Thought I’d share what’s been happening in my ‘shop’ this week (that’s been keeping me preoccupied).

Did I mention I was in the Christmas spirit?
I’m doing something I’ve never done before!

This new This+That kit is available as a preorder for $13!
As soon as I have it in the real store (first part of next week), it’ll be the usual $15.

You can now buy this in the store for the usual $15.

Yes, this kit is a little late in coming. In my ‘grand scheme’ of things,

I forgot to take into account that I’d be gone for most of a week for Thanksgiving. Yikes!

And you know, I started off with green in the in the color scheme mix, but as I was making more pieces, it just seemed off. Once I took it out, I just went, “Ahhhh. That’s it.” While green is a favorite color of mine, I must be anti-green right now considering the Christmas Countdown calendar I made and now this. Oh well.

I know that many of you have been waiting for something a little less Dr. Seuss-ish (from last year’s T+T).
I hope this won’t disappoint.
I’m growing rather fond of the vintage style myself. :)

So just preorder this baby and you won’t have to worry about a thing after that.
I shall sendeth thee thy kit upon completion (first part of next week).
That way it’s one less thing for you to keep checkin’ for during this crazy time of year.

    Are you KIDDING me?!!? I just spent all day yesterday putting together the Christmas kit for me and my MIL, because I thought there was no way you’d have time to do a new one with all the fabulous stuff you’ve come up with already!! and of course this kit is EXACTLY the style I wanted! Looks like someone is getting a tray for Christmas, so I can make the new one!! LOL!

      Oh Beth. So sorry. You wanted to be really crafty right now anyway, right? ;)

    Oooh this is going to go with our decor so much better than last year’s kit! And my new Cameo should be here by then :)

    I knew you wouldn’t forget us! Love this – love the vintage, love the colors, love the swirly sleigh runners! Can’t wait to make it up!

    Also, as I mentioned on the Facebook page, something is not right with the “Add to cart” button. At least for me…

    Thanks, Kerri!

    Ugh. And now when I try to order it’s just taking me to my Paypal account instead of the order page. I’m doing this on my iPhone because our home Internet is down, so maybe that’s the issue? Or is the link not working right?

  5. {dawn} December 1, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    Just went back to click the “Add to cart” button, and now it works! So I am in on the pre-order – yeah!!!

  6. Beth December 1, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    Woo HOO! It’s fixed and I got my order in! Now…who can I give this tray to?

    Love this! I knew there was a reason I have procrastinated on finishing up my December Daily! By the way, the Christmas Countdown made beautiful numbers for DD! I did finish them. Can’t wait to get my hands on this!

    So glad you omitted the green. This matches my DD and my decor perfectly. Will be making this for my handmade decor addition this year for sure!!!!! LOVE it!

    I love this and just received four printer’s trays in yesterday, so this kit will be perfect. I made all of the countdown tag and put them on display on a silver tree. It is beautiful!! Thanks for sharing all of your creativity!

    Kraft, red, black and white? I’m all over it! I knew the minute I saw the sled that I must have this kit. Finally finished my first tray 2 days ago (Winter) and everyone in my family loves it and thinks I am a genius.. so thanks for that! I even posted it on my neglected blog. Can’t wait to try another.
