Last Two Days of the Jolly Holiday Sale

  I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season! I've been enjoying this week off spending time with the family, working on puzzles, reading, getting the house back into shape, and playing with my new iPad Pro. Yay! :) I wanted to also remind y'all about our final two days of the Jolly Holiday sale. Stamps are already discounted and use the code JOLLY for the rest (some exclusions apply). I can't believe we're almost at 2018!!!

The Curious Case of the Diabetic Cat

  Well, we are six weeks into the diabetes regiment with Sam, our cat (read the story). It’s been rather a process getting his levels down during the first weeks. We started with one unit of insulin, then went to two and eventually to three when it finally came down to more of 300, but it still fluctuated up to the 400 range. Still, he was feeling better, not hanging out by the faucet and therefore not peeing gallons and actually started hanging out with us again on our beds. Shocker. But we still needed to get that glucose level [...]

What Can You Do With A Bread Tag?

Just a little bit ago I challenged myself to see how many bread tags I could decorate for Christmas from the Attach It kit. I'm a big fan of cutting multiples of things, so I made myself a sheet of different size tags, cut them, got my stamps, and stamped away!         The square and smaller rectangle tags are 1.25" wide. The large tag is 1.5" wide. I used a combination of stamps and embossing for simple and creative looks. The problem was having to stop. ;)     I think this may be my favorite tag. [...]

Day 13? It’s A Baker’s Dozen.

Alrighty. We actually have one more project (no freebie, sorry) to share for our 12 Days of Christmas. A sort of Baker's Dozen, if you will. :) Marcy has this loooovely packaging idea to share today!       That color scheme and layering of this package is amazing! Like...seriously. It is absolutely divine. I never would have thought to layer all those tags in different sizes like that. I absolutely love it! Here's what Marcy has to say: As soon as I saw the word art stamp from the Believe stamp set I knew it would work great as a belly [...]

Day 11 | Words Are The Best Element

I've said it a bazillion times (okay, maybe not a bazillion, but close), words are truly my favorite element. They are the perfect way to accent your page while 'saying' more about your page. What can be better than that? If a photo speaks a thousand words, at least more words can help it along, right? So when I saw this final project from our holiday guest, Kim Jeffress, I was in heaven! Words everywhere!           perfection. I don't even know where to begin. Just look at all that eye candy! All the details. The mix of [...]

Day 10 | Oh Deer!

We are on our 10th day of Christmas folks! Can you even believe how fast this has gone? Just two more days! You guys have been so awesome. Your love for this time of year here is why I do what I do. I appreciate each and every one of you. mwah! And now I have a question...do any of you still get excited when you see a deer? Granted, I know that many people don't live where the deer and the antelope play, but there are many that do. And you would think that seeing a deer would finally become [...]

Day 9 | Deck Your Halls + Envelopes

I started a new tradition a few short years ago. Well, I guess it was technically Dan that started it when he bought a Christmas wreath from our local nursery. It was one of those hand-to-the-forehead moments when I wondered why we hadn't ever done it before...to bring in that fresh pine scent since we no longer do fresh Christmas trees. So from that point on, on Small Business Saturday, I've loved going and getting a wreath. Sadly, this year's isn't lasting as long. Not exactly sure why. But you know what won't wither and brown? die cut wreaths. ;) [...]

Day 8 | Before Christmas

There are so many activities happening before Christmas. So many place to go, people to see, food to eat, Santa...all that.  Festivities abound. Such festivities might include seeing Christmas decor around town, like lights or a giant Christmas tree, like our super creative Paige Evans here! I'm gonna let Paige tell us all about.... I've got a new layout to share today using a pretty wreath cut file from the the Kerri Bradford Studio Christmas Calendar!     First I die cut the wreath from plain 12x12 white cardstock as well as these patterned papers from Turn the Page: Paper [...]

Day 7 | Home For The Holidays

This is the first year of our lives where we have children that live away and are coming home for the holidays. Seems like such a weird concept. But how exciting is it to have people come to your home for the holidays? Parties, dinners, family, friends...there's nothing like being at home for the holidays. Can ya feel the love? So today we have a little bit of home-ee type items going on. Let's do something in the party realm with our darling Miss Maggie!         How stinkin' cute are these invitations?! My creative team constantly wows me. I [...]
