Hello my wonderful blog readers! It's a beautiful, but really cold day here in Maryland this morning, my office is freezing so I have a portable heater blowing on me to keep me warm today. I am hoping to craft some with my girls, we have so many wonderful holidays crafts that never seem to get completed, today seems like the perfect day. Have had a rough end to this week, having had a major issue with a family member that has truly just hurt my family beyond measure and the only way to get through is just to move on, measure my own blessings and tell myself that there are just people in this world to feel pity for because they are so filled with misery that hurting others becomes their only way to deal with themselves.
I though--- am sooo blessed with my beautiful family, warm home, friends and family, and a gift to create amazing things to share with crafters all around the world. How could I need anything more?
Colorful Companions and an Amer. Crafts sticker for the greeting. I also managed to detail the bflies with those soft lime pearls and a teal button with twine. Simple card really, but so pretty!
LilyGirl- last week you asked me how I store my scraps...for most of my scraps I have a 12x12 storage box for cardstock and one for patterned paper. What I try to do is create with my scraps right away. I only keep scraps if they are 4x6 or larger, mostly. And I love mixing papers, so occasionally when I have a day to just play, I will get out my scraps box and try different patterns together. Also remember- with working for several manufacturers, I often just keep my scraps of their papers in my supply boxes and then just work from that. If you are super conscientious you could keep a super small scraps bag, and donate them to your art teachers at schools, the kids love to play with colorful scraps.
Now, on to my giveaways....

Just a single giveaway this week, and just to let you know, I have had several blog candy winners who didn't contact me over the last few weeks, which although I'm sure their lives are hectic as is everyone's at this time of year, I don't feel it's fair for all my blog readers to continue holding these prizes to the side for. So at this time, aside from today's winners, all those prizes are back on my giveaway list. Looks like I will continue to be able to give away goodies for several more weeks!
