I had to get the Naughty one, I could not resist. It's hard to believe that December is here already, and that means Christmas is right around the corner, and so is the end of the year for getting tax papers in order…but what sounds like more fun is….new stamps! It's release week over at Hanna Stamps!
Make sure you go on over to Splitcoast Stampers Thursday December 4th at 9pm EST and join in all the fun while the Hanna Stamps! Design Team have challenges, and prizes! Also check out the rest of the DT blogs to see what they have come up with.
It is very cute and fun, no matter how old of a "girl" you are.
Oh and what was I saying about Naughty?
Well I am going to CHA in California in January, and me and my dear friend Cindy are going to room together. So when I was at Target one day, I spied these little Naughty or Nice things, and well like I said I choose the Naughty ones.
So this is gonna be a little roomie gift for Cindy, shhhh….don't tell her, she NEVER reads my blog so she won't know. This way she can sleep in in the morning…..ya think?

So today there was a bug on the door and I was checking it out and I was like hmmm…it looks like a lady bug, but it was black with 1 red dot on one side and 1 on the other, so this was the weirdest lady bug I ever saw, it is in a jar right now in case a scientist is interested. Aren't lady bugs red with black dots? and don't they have more then 1 on each side?
I also cooked tonight, yeah I shoulda told you to sit down before you started to read. I love Michelle Wooderson's blog Mish Mash, I love how she decorates, I love her stamping and crafting, I especially love her use of antiques in her craft room, and now I love her French Onion Soup.
So I ran into the grocery store today after going to UPS to ship my Leadership Displays and I picked up ingredients to make Michelle's soup, as well as other goodies, I shopped hungry…bad bad Diana!
So tonight I made it, and it was very good. In fact Jeff had two bowls…well a bowl and a half cause he finished mine. I really have to get onion soup bowls, cause I just used these ramakins and they were kinda small.
The first time I had french onion soup was at Convention this year, my BFF Tracy had ordered it one night and I said the next night I was going to order it, and it was good. I never was an onion person growing up, but now that I am older I can eat them, if they are not strong. So the man at the grocery store told me to get the white onion as it was not as spicy as the yellow, I am glad I asked, since the recipe did not really say. So anyway, definitely try it, and let me know what you think. I may even start making cute recipe cards like Michelle does…..I so want to be her……….
So my 12 Days of Christmas special today is "Ribbon is all the Rage" – basically every day I have a special for my customers, and they get an email newsletter telling them about it…….email me if you want me to sign you up. I do this sale every year, and then I also have a sale while I am on the Stampin' Up! incentive trip every year. It is just a way to thank everyone for their friendship and supporting me over the year.
Have a great Tuesday, and thanks for stopping in!
