With only 5 days until Christmas, we decided to keep life simple and repeat our tag from Week 1. Besides, not many of you knew about the free make & takes that we were running as a part of Downtown's A Dickens of a Christmas. This will be the final week for the Saturday event which will run between 10am and 3pm. We will, however, begin our Happy Hours in the new year. Check back to get the scoop.
So if you have time and would like to venture out, please join us for a fun little tag! Thank you to all who participated.

Have you ever had a day go NOT according to plan....well it has been one of those days for me. Sorry I am just getting this in at approximately 11:55 PM Friday. I guess I should look at it as doing better than last week when I posted Saturdays tag on Saturday. I am in the thick of the terrible twos and it has been a little rough. On the bright side, my son (who is almost 4 months) is now ALMOST sleeping through the night! Much better than having to wake up to feed every 2 or 3 hours! Now if only I could get them on the same schedule....
Here is the little tag we are making for this Saturdays A Dickens of a Christmas. The project is FREE so come out and have a little fun with us. We will be working with some fun decorative paper, flowers, ribbon and some fun Making Memory letter stickers that we just got in. I cannot believe how many stickers you get for just under three bucks.
There will be two more tags before Christmas. You will notice that these projects are quite simple. We are gearing these for the first time paper crafter and children. We are hoping to start up our Happy Hours again in the new year. These make and takes will be a little more involved.....more details about this will follow.

This project incorporates Stampingbellas new Christmas stamps (note...students may also choose a sweet snowman or a rocking reindeer....also from Bella). A new Bella shipment arrived yesterday so we just HAD to use some of these adorable designs! We also used Stickles, Nestabillities, a Tombow and very cute crystal brads from Making Memories (also new to the store this week). We know that many of you are beyond this level of stamping but we hope to see you out supporting your downtown!
Note...next week I hope to post the project on Friday if all goes well! It will be up Saturday morning at the absolute latest. I also promise to post more regularly....I didn't realize you guys would miss us that much!! (=
