12 Days of Christmas Day 1 ~ Episode 280


It's FINALLY here! Welcome to our FIRST day of our "12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop"! WOW, I hope you have your coffee, or whatever choice of beverage you usual take at this time because there is LOTS to see! Let's just say that by the time these 12 days are over, you will have ALL of your Christmas gifts/cards/home decor ALL DONE! Trust me, there is SOOO MUCH inspiration along the way, that you do NOT want to miss a blog!  Okie dokie, let's get started. I decided to kick of these 12 days w/a "Home Decor" item! I picked up this cute 17 inch "Charlie Brown" tree up @ Hobby Lobby! As soon as I saw it, I just KNEW it needed "L-O-V-E"!;) I found some  Candy Cane Chenille Stems at Hobby Lobby & just rolled them up & hot glued a toothpick behind it to make them look like lollipops! I added some tulle & twine as well! I knew my lollipops needed an "extra" touch. I decided to use the circle die from my "Build a Banner Kit" & the cute little Christmas tree from my "Anyday Bingo & Crossword"! I stamped the tree onto the circle die & added some glitter around the circle & added Lime color stickles to the little trees!

I couldn't get a PERFECT picture:( But it sure does look WAY CUTER in person!;)

You can see EXACTLY how I decorated my "Charlie Brown" tree in my video below!;)

HAPPY HAPPY TURKEY DAY!:)

(This is a card from last year)

Happy Thanksgiving to ALLLL of my SWEET CREATIVE Friends!;) I have SOOO MUCH to be "Thankful" for today!:)
I know I said that I was going to do a video for today, but it didn't happen! Yesterday when I was loading up more stamps that I just packaged to take to my Mom's, I was putting them in the back of my Durango & as I was closing the back gate, I didn't move quick enough & hit my own head (my right side of my temple) w/that HEAVY door! OMG.....I think this is the first time I actually saw stars!!! So, needless to say, I was in NO condition to even do a video, let alone make a post lastnight:( THANK GOD for my boys, they helped my Mom w/shipping AND when they were done, they even helped my Mom cook for Thanksgiving today!
After MUCH icing my head & lots of Tylenol, today I don't feel dizzy & I can actually see straight now!;) I guess I get to have my Turkey dinner w/a big bump & bruise on my right side of my temple on my face:(  At least ALL of this good food will make it ALLLLL BETTER!;)

Have a FABULOUS Thanksgiving everyone! I will see you ALL back here on Dec 1st to kick off our 12 Days of Christmas hop w/my Design Team! AND I will have 12 of the BEST giveaways EVER! You definitely don't want to miss out on that!;) xoxo
