Hi Everyone & Happy Tuesday to ya! I'm back--sorry I needed an extra day off! Sunday was my hubby's birthday & we spent the day as a family bowling, making a special dinner & watching a movie---so no time to get anything crafty done! But it was a good day & he had a nice day me thinks---I fixed a gourmet dinner of Maple Glazed Ham, Cheesy Scalloped potatoes, Roasted Mushrooms w/ Brie and Spinach Salad w/ Warm Bacon Dressing (the spinach salad recipe & mushroom recipe courtesy of Pioneer Woman, Ree, my favorite new obsession, LOL--and they were both yummy)! Glad to hear that I've got some of you all hooked on Pioneer Woman as well, LOL--I loved some of your emails & messages--she's a bit addicting, huh? The kids even got in on the kitchen action this weekend with Riley making jalapeno poppers for appetizers and Alexa made Hot Fudge Lava cake--so it was a family affair (well hubby was on the couch watching the Redskins lose again--argghhhhhh, maybe next year they'll be actually win again, hee hee)!
-7 Kids College Fund has some awesome NEW products in store now that you might want to check out!! NEW Sakura Jelly Roll pens (awesome for embellishing images & writing--I love 'em), NEW Shimmerz colors (love the antique lace) and NEW Sizzix Texturz Plates (fun alternative to CB folders--lots of cool patterns)!
-I will be posting a NEW Copic Tutorial Video very soon (as soon as it's sunny again here in VA, hee hee) showing how I color "GOLD" like I did on this car image HERE!
-I will be having a Crafter's Holiday Open House on December 5th at my home from noon until 5 pm!! If you are in the area & would like to come I'd love to have you---just a fun way to meet other crafters nearby, chat & have some holiday sweets! I will be having a Mitten/Hat Giving Tree, so if you'd like to bring a hat and/or mittens for a child under age 12 that would be fab! I will be donating all of them to the local Shelter for Domestic Violence Sufferer's Children! If you think you'd like to come just email me and let me know, and I can send you my addy!! It's sure to be a fun time--so just drop by for an hour or three!!
Ivory Flower Soft on the hydrangeas and stickles on the berry leaves and jar front--gotta have some bling!! Now make sure and hop over to the store blog "Follow Your Heart" to see the rest of the DT's fabulous projects using buttons today!!
Hope you all have a fabulous day & I'll see you back here tomorrow with a Magnolia Holiday Project!!
