Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It seems like this year has just flown by and now Christmas is upon us. I loved driving around last night with my husband and seeing so many Christmas lights up. I saw some really beautiful houses and I could just feel the spirit of the holidays. I wanted to share a couple of photos of a recent bag & tag swap I did this month. I am sorry I have not been able to post very much, as many of my swaps were due this month. I am finally down to one last swap due in mid December. I can't believe it, but I am relieved as I need to get my Christmas Cards done this week. Have a wonderful day and I will be posting more in December.

Gingerbread Sighting!

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the incredible Gingerbread line Martha Stewart has out at Michaels. All of the items are so cute! Here's a picture of some of the items I bought. I want it ALL! You know if you don't get it now, it won't be there later. I have learned this lesson too many times, so I had to pick up the key items. The Gingerbread stamp set and Gingerbread border punch were must have items. I also fell in love with the new dot scallop punch. I will be making some swap bags with this set, so I will be back tomorrow to show you what I came with using these items. As you know, Christmas is rapidly approaching so I will be doing several of these Gingerbread Sightings for all my fellow Gingerbread lovers. Let me know if you have any sightings of your own. I would love to hear from you.
