'Tis the Season... for making gifts!

With only 41 days left until Christmas, there's no time like the present (no pun intended) to get started on some great homemade gifts! The Winter Issue of Canadian Scrapbooker will be in stores by December 1st and I am thrilled to say that I have some projects featured in the A Scrapbookers Gift Section. The Website has already been updated, and you can get a sneak peek, and even check out the pdf instructions for some of the projects. The templates will be available next week.... but you can get your supplies all ready to go now!

Now, onto today's CARD.. I made one, so I figure I should share it =)
My scanner is being a bit of apain and keeps making this terrible shadow on my cards - GRRR.. so it's wayyy cuter is real life!

Home for the Holidays!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at our house! I spent the weekend working with my friend Cheryl Jackson on our Maya Road Home for the Holidays contest entry.

We spent hours, and hours and hours in an already incredibly busy weekend working on this project. It was so much fun, but boy am I tired tonight! Cheryl quilled her but off, can you believe ALL those candies, lollipops, wreath, pole and more is quilled! Man is she talented and PATIENT. I glittered, punched, puffed, painted, stickled, grouted and fiddled.. we made an excellent team. Take a look at my Picassa album for just a sample - and then wish us luck. If you love it, we are going to try and offer a Day long workshop over at Bizzy B's in December. We'll make a smaller house, and your learn the basics of quilling and some of our tricks to creating this calorie free treat!

Let me know what you think... I NEED more comments =)

Maya Road

I also bought a new toy - A bigshot! Whooohooo, I am pretty excited. I have some old sizzix dies that I've pulled out of storage, and I bought a BIGZ die to make little party favours. Of course I didn't get the extra cutting mat I needed, so I had to fiddle around to get it to work. Tried to pick up a mat today but bought the wrong thing - arghh.

Anyways, look for a fun new project tomorrow. I'm in the crafting spirit now.
