Well the excitement of this month, I totally forgot to post this:

The Free Stamp Set for the Month of December is "That's the Ticket". This is a brand spanking new set in the Spring Catalog. You can see it on this adorable Valentine's Day card.

For a chance to win this set, here are the details:  You will earn a ticket for each order you place in my online store in the month of December. Order twice and get two tickets and so on. There is no minimum order requirement to be eligible for the drawing. Sorry, but club orders, and workshop orders do not apply.

I'll draw a ticket to see who wins on January 1, and notify the winner.

Just a reminder online orders of $40.00 (before tax and shipping) earn Country Dozen Rewards toward free stamps.

Well maybe, ha!  I did get some Christmas cash and it was burning a hole in my pocket and I still had to pick up some gifts so I went for a drive and my Breaking Dawn 2 soundtrack.  I went to a place I had never been before. The Rustic Hutch in Mesa, OMG! what a cute store. It has one of my favorite vendors there, Julie's Home Decor and I got something from her booth, I always do (she has a booth in several other places I go). I swear if I knew her we would be great friends...and I would be broke.

Here's me finds...

Are these not adorable? These were from Julie's booth. The chunky glitter on top looks like sugar and you wanna lick don't, but you wanna.

Everyone needs some rusty balls...err bells on their tree. These are like baseball sized.

This little guy actually spoke to me and said "please Miss (he had me at Miss) take me home and love me".

This shabby stool was a steal and I love it, it is nice and solid and perfect for when I sit at my cutting table as that is the same table as my sewing machine, plus...

After I finished wrapping I had some empty tubes and Toby said he'd take care of them for me...gotta love the little guy.


Have an awesome Christmas eve and thanks for stopping in.

Have you seen the show Undercover Boss? I have been watching it tonight while I work on Christmas stuff, and it is pretty good. I am not too sure on the disquises, I am thinking the hair is pretty wild. One episode was a guy and his hair was so obviously a wig, and long...but maybe they thought he was a bald man, I guess since I know it is fake it is obvious, but it is pretty neat how the bosses help the workers that work for them. I love the workers that seriously love their jobs no matter how bad or hard they might be.

I wanted to show you this gorgeous Christmas card I got from my sweet friend and downline Tricia Sachs.

Wow can you believe that Christmas is only a few days away?  I guess if you live where it snows then probably it seems more like Christmas, but I don't know, Arizona with the so-so cold weather it always come fast.

Plus some gorgeous new Tea for Two Designer Series Paper.  Make sure you sign up for my Designer Series Paper Share, it will be after the first of January, I'll be sending out an email soon, so make sure you are on that list. You are going to want to get your hands on the new!!!
