Back.

Whew! Who knew a silly little facebook virus could turn into THOUSANDS of virus' that force your repair man to completely wipe everything from your computer to fix the problem? I'm happy to report that I'm back. In full swing. Ready to post, post, post away. A couple of things I have been dying to tell you all:

::Martha has some really lovely gift wrapping ideas on her site. Check them all out here.
::My crazy talented sister in law has helped me design our Christmas Card using her mad photoshop skills. I'm so excited to show you what we came up with. [later this week]
::The craft bazaar was a success! Kristin and I sold most of our inventory and other than being stuck in a classroom with some of the most fragrant candles imaginable for 2 days, we are happy we did it. We met this talented gal while we were there and was inspired by all of her pretty creations.
::I have closed the shop until the new year. Friday marks the beginning of Christmas vacation for the children and I want to make sure we have plenty of time to play without any distractions. Ryan will be home too which is the biggest treat of all.
::The cozy brick house has been feathered for Santa's arrival. I'll share some pictures tomorrow.
::Did you notice my new winter banner? Sweet Lyndsay designed it. Her skills never cease to amaze me.
::Emily has offered up some printable gift tags. Hooray!
::It's snowing like no body's business outside with a high temp of only 14 degrees anticipated. Needless to say I'm silently praying that our current 2 hour delay turns into a school cancellation. I really don't want to leave the house. Or get dressed.

Happy Monday to you!

  1. Ditto to canceling school, all week would be nice, that is until they have to go until the 4th of July to make up for it.

  2. I'm just going to ditto Natasha's entire comment!

    I can't wait to see your Christmas cards, they're always beautiful!

    I was only in that candle room for 10 minutes, and thought I was going to pass out...I'm so impressed that you girls did it for two days!!

    P.S.
    SO glad you're back!

  4. I was worried they weren't going to even delay school! When I checked at 5:58 this morning it was still on time and I couldn't believe it. There is nothing like preChristmas snow.

    PS. I loved working with you on your Christmas cards!
