To Be Merry! The month is almost half over and we are less than two weeks until Christmas. Yikes! Time to get those gifts made. Or started if you haven't done that yet. :) Today I'm sharing the Be Merry Kit from the Holiday Catalog. This kit includes all the supplies you need to make twelve ornaments. I do recommend a hot glue gun for assembly of the ornaments. And you'll want a fine-tip glue pen to glue the "merry" to the wood … [Read more...] about Tis the Season…
I'm a wanna-be quilter. That is... I love the look of quilts and I've attempted a number of them on my own. But, I think I have only ever finished two smallish quilts. I must have at least five partial quilts that are in various stages of completion. I always seem to run into a problem like machine keeps jamming or can't decide on a pattern for the quilting part or I run out of that specific fabric in the middle of a row. I've decided … [Read more...] about And In My Spare Time…

In Southern California, we don't get much in the way of snowy Christmases. It is 94' on Sunday as I write this and we are almost to the end of October. Don't worry though... tomorrow it's going to be 101'. Yay. I found these adorable jars at a local store and they had a hardware kit to add a post to the top of the jar so you could add a picture or card. Our Memories & More Christmas set was the perfect size to top these jars. We … [Read more...] about A Little Jar of Christmas
Did you know there are only 12 more weeks until Christmas? I know, I can't believe it either. It seems to come faster and faster every year. I'm trying to be better this year about getting more things done earlier. We'll see if I can keep up the momentum. This coming weekend, I'm working at a Holiday Boutique and I've been busy trying to get lots of goodies made for the boutique. One of the items I'll have for sale is this cute wooden … [Read more...] about Deck The Halls
When I graduated college 20+ years ago and started looking for a "real" job, little did I know where it would take me. Needing full time work and unsure how to go about finding just the right job, I signed up with a Temp Agency. I interviewed at a Company within a few days and they asked me to start right away. Within a few weeks, they offered me a job. I stayed with the Company for a number of years. We celebrated weddings, … [Read more...] about Friends for Life and the 2016 Ornament
First, let me apologize for no "Five Minute Friday" today. I'll be back to those next Friday. Instead, I have a couple new things to share. Starting today, I’m launching a couple new programs: a 24-7 Ink Rewards, Host Codes, and Free Catalogs! Check the bar across the top and you can read the details for each program. But those aren't the only good things starting today... it's almost like Christmas around here! And speaking of … [Read more...] about Christmas in July!
Okay, be honest, did you just gasp there? Seriously, the days are sailing by at light speed. Before you know it, Back To School supplies will be on sale and Halloween will be right around the corner. And once the Halloween decorations come out, the rest of the holidays will be here as well. Like I said, it's almost 2017. It is not too early to start working on those Christmas projects that never quite seem to get done every year. (Admit it, … [Read more...] about Only 185 More Days Until Christmas!
