Online Extravaganza with Stampin' Up! {12 Weeks of Christmas}

Hooray!  It's here!  Click {HERE} to get the list of specials...  Click {HERE TO SHOP}!  There are two 24-hour Flash Sales (November 23 and November 30). The trick is (and you know how I love this), there is a limited amount of discounted product.  Order early if something's been on your Wish List...  Check back to see if items are no longer available (I assume the red-lined items are out-of-stock).

And now for the apology part of today's post.  I'd intended to post a weekly 12 Weeks of Christmas post (the projects, in large part, are done). The trick is, we had an unexpected illness at our house that meant a hospital stay, etc. The good news is that she's on the mend and I'll work to catch up and post what I can.  The bad news is that it won't be as planned out and regular as I'd hoped.  Our little patient is working hard to recover, but it'll be January before things are somewhat back-to-normal here, so I'll post what and when I can. I'm grateful that my Stampin' Up! business can still work in the background while I am busy with my family.

If you've ordered recently and haven't heard from me, I apologize.  I will be touching base with you soon!

Thanks for your patience and get shopping! There are some great bargains to be had!

Festive Fireplace for a Mojo Monday Challenge {12 Weeks of Christmas} Week 2

I'm at the tail end of a great weekend retreat, away with like-minded crafting friends and this is one of the projects I completed.  I didn't bring my usual photo-taking accoutrements with me, so it won't be until I am home that I can take proper pictures of this fancy fold card with a belly band.

Here's a quick look; I need to post it on the Mojo Monday blog, as I won't be home to do so by 7:00 PM (the deadline). Please check back for an updated post with the supplies I used, as well as alternative views at the parts and how it folds.  This was a fun card to make and I enjoyed playing with my new Festive Fireplace stamp set and Festive Fireside Framelits.

Busy End of October

2015 Halloween:  Albert Einstein and Mary Poppins...  "Practically perfect in every way..."

I had big plans this year to have a weekly {12 Weeks of Christmas} post for you, but I'm afraid the craziness of Halloween and a lot of substitute teaching put a crimp in that plan. 

My youngest wanted to be Mary Poppins and I found the sweetest pattern for an overcoat just like Mary would wear.  It was a Vogue pattern, so it was a little fussy, but we're both excited that she'll have a cozy coat to wear for church and special occasions. I also managed to crank out the scarf (I knit while I wait at dance, soccer, in line for school pick-up, etc). 

Now that the craziness of Halloween has subsided, the house is quasi-put-back-together and the laundry is almost caught up, it's time to get back on schedule.  I look forward to catching you up on my 2015 edition of the {12 Weeks of Christmas}!
