Today I had my downline Christmas Potluck and Shoebox, and I totally. forgot. to. take. pictures! What the heck! We had so much fun, I just forgot.
I got my Occasions catalog pre-order and totally wanted to play with some new stuff, so I cased and tweaked a card I saw online by Sandy Mathis. I did different colors and DSP but it is her layout. Thanks Sandy! This set is perfect for paper piecing. I will be having a class in January where you get the set and the paper stack at class and we will be making some fun stuff.
Stamp Set: Vivid Vases
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Old Olive, Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder
Paper: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Whisper White, Fresh Prints of Bel Air Designer Series Paper Stack
Misc: Candy Dots
I will share the other cards from the swap through out the next few days.
After everyone left I ran over to Thriftiques a cool place in Tempe and picked up this dresser I have been thinking about, I had some mad money saved up. It looks so awesome with our Nativity on it. (makes me realize we really need to paint the inside of the house) I love the details on it. I do believe a nice big window frame with a mirror behind it might end up going above it and replace the smaller mirror that is there now.
It holds tons too. The dresser I had there before, Jeff has claimed for his own. He says I take over the closet and he needs a place for his pants and stuff. I hang my pants but he does not want to.
So Jeff and I are going to start Christmas shopping…hey it is not that late. While Eric and I decorated the tree Jeff made Cajun Crab Risotto in the pressure cooker, it was amazing. Did I mention I am addicted to the pressure cooker?
Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.
