Epsiode #317 ~ After Christmas Shopping Haul

Happy New Years Eve Crafty Friends,
  I hope everyone's holidays were chockfull of joy & happiness... Our's were lovely & thankyou to those who so thoughtful & sent me a wonderful card!
  Right after Christmas, I headed out to do some shopping with my college aged son while he is home from school. He is such a sweet kid, he doesn't mind a bit, being dragged around scrapbook stores. I am truely blessed to have my wonderful children!
  I didn't find to many great deals, but I did manage to find afew. Make sure you check out your local Michael's for the sale on Tim Holtz stuff. i am hoping it wasn't just a glitch at my store so you all can get in on the deal.
  Lastly, thank you to all of you wonderful crafty friends, I am so glad I have gotten to know so many of you over the last year or so & I am looking forward to getting to know each of you better in the New Year. I have met some of the nicest, most caring people through my blog & YouTube, on this journey we call life. I know God has put you all on my path for a reason & I truely value the freindships we have made.
  Here's to all you special people in my life & my 2013 be a happy, healthy & prospurous New Year!

Jimmy Wayne - Paper Angels

Happy Saturday Everyone,
  I wanted to share this meaningful video with all of you & ask that each of us purchase a small gift for all of the children that are alone & living on the streets. Perhaps your childs school or your local church has a "Giving Tree" where you can take a mitten & get the item listed on it. I have chaired these projects in the past & it is very rewarding.
  Not everyone has been blessed enough to have a loving & supportive family to raise them. So many children are homeless & living on the streets & it makes me so very, very sad.
  Thank you for considering & letting those who need us, that someone does really care.
Catch the Spirit,

Episode #316 ~ Super Simple Sunday #32 Gift Basket Goodies!

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends,
  I have been super busy making cards and goodies for a gift basket I am putting together as a donation on behalf of my women's group that I am in. We raise alot of money every year and donate the proceeds to needy families and charties in our area.
  Pink seems to be my color choice this holiday season, so out of the box for me! I just love it though and really want to do a pink tree in my daughters room.
  I used some retired Stampin' Up! sets as well as current ones to make these pretty cards, so I hope this might inspire you to break out those stamp sets you barely use.
  Have a restful day with your families today and let's keep the true meaning of Christmas in our hearts! Jesus' birth!!!
