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 [...]

Day 6 | That’s A Wrap

Whoa. Whoooooaaaa. Don't get your knickers in a twist. We're not ending our 12 Days of Christmas here on Day 6. All is well. We just seem to have a little theme a-goin' on here. It's all about wrapping up those gifts! And here to show us some gift-wrapped amazingness is Melanie Blackburn! She's showing off some stamped tags in very fine fashion. Take a look.         Oh sweet figgy pudding, those tags are awesome! I particularly love the combo of stamps on the sleigh ride tag. That dimension is divine. Let's hear what Mel has to [...]

Brand New Christmas Calendar

This has literally been a year in the making. You might recognize some of the designs--like the Santa, reindeer and trees--from the Happy Christmas stamps that were released last year. I had created some designs before all heck broke loose on my site last year with the intent of using them in a brand new advent calendar as well as stamps. Long story short, the brand new kit, Christmas Calendar, is finally here!     Originally, I had intended to purchase a frame. Then I thought I could use a gold frame that has a painting that my grandma made [...]

A Birthday Surprise!

This weekend I said hello to 51. What? I surely can't be that old. I swear I'm only like 31, right? I can't believe how fast time flies! I had a lovely weekend with my family. Friday night Dan and I went out to Chilis on Kass. Saturday (the official day) we all went to see a movie. I had to work a little and prepare a lesson for church, so it was pretty much like every other day. ;) Sunday Jordan made curry for dinner and we had chocolate cream pie for dessert. And Tuesday I go out with [...]

Christmas In July | It’s A Sign

  I love vintage things. I'm an old soul art heart. I grew up on a farm with a rich history and many saved items of those years. So I had this idea to make a home decor item that fit the 'old sign' category. But I took it one step farther. If I was going to make a large sign, I didn't just want it for Christmas, I wanted something that could be kept up in my home for fall and Christmas. A two-fer, if you will. I found a large wooden tray at Hobby Lobby that was 20x13. [...]

Christmas In July | Deck Those Halls

Before we get started, if you're looking for the Christmas stamps, including the two that are brand new this week, please use the link to the right. All is explained there. Not only did I put the challenge out to my beauty of a creative team to make items you can prepare ahead of time--like tags or cards, but I also loved the thought of Christmas decor or gift giving, even. Anything you can do now to save you time later is the best! And our Miss Laura took that challenge and ran with it! Her canvases are beyond amazing. I'm going to let [...]
