A Little Love

All my kids are now in their twenties--with one being married and living away. As they got older, it became tradition for me to get them a 'made from scratch' Valentine cookie or on occasion a Cravings cupcake because...who really needs all that candy? The girls especially didn't want a bunch of candy around. (wink wink) On occasion I'll find some other sort of token. This year, some super fun socks caught my eye. And now all I'm thinking is how cute would they be in these card holders that our Miss Maggie made!     Now that my kids [...]

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 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 [...]

Let the KBS Twelve Days of Christmas Begin!

The KBS Twelve Days of Christmas is seriously my favorite time of year. And yes, I know that technically the real '12 Days' doesn't start now, but I'm a bit of a rebel and in my little world...it starts December 1st....today. :)     If you're newer here and haven't been 'round for one of these, you're in for a real treat! Each day--for twelve days-- we have amazingly creative people popping in for the holidays and we have a freebie available for that day only. And you never know what else will come our way. ;) So what should we [...]

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 [...]
