Ok, so I havn't gotten as much posted and created today as I would have hoped. I got the itch to at least get out and do a little bit of shopping. Plus I think I ate so much food yesterday that i'm just moving a little slower than usual. See above our turkey (1 of 2) and our 10,000 side dishes. It's funny, this is the first time i've actually ran out of room on my countertop. Even a challenge for me!
Also, we had over our friends for dinner that just happen to live right across the street and they have a yorkie too- it's scotch's girlfriend Zoe. Scotch is on the left, Zoe on the right racing for the water bowls.

Setting the Creative Mood!

Here's the entrance into my new stamping haven! It took me forever to get this Vinyl Lettering up when you come down the stairs, but I love it. Sets the "creative" mood.

December 6th card class cards

Here's some creations i've made today. These are the cards for our December 6th class and the project which is an ornament made with the big shot scallop die! Enjoy!

Christmas Card using all punches

This is a card I made for a swap I did with some demonstrator friends this past week. Just thought I would share. It is all made with punches for the whole topiary. I got this great idea from Inking Idaho who's a blog to the right- she sells her 12 days of Christmas directions (this was one of the ideas) for $12.95. I plan to try and make more from it this weekend!

My New Craft Space

As many of you know, we've been working on our basement so I can have my card classes downstairs as well as my workspace. This weekend I cannot tell you how many trips I took from the 2nd story down to the basement.........I got quite a bit of exercise. I think I just have 1 more load and then should be able to start putting things in place for the December class. Here's a sneak peak at my new work space and our "living room" we made in the corner- cozy place to browse through catalogs! Can't wait to show you all more soon!
