Winter's Tale

Winter is here, and with it lots of snow and bitter cold.  Many find themselves occuping their time indoors, catching up on projects and finding ways to keep warm.   That's what the Design Team of the Paper Crafters Sampler kept in mind when preparing for "Winter's Tale", The December 2010 issue of Paper Crafters Sampler.

Inside the Winter issue, you'll find the projects useful for before and after the Holiday season.

Here's a preview:

Online Spectacular

Sweet potatos in the oven since 5:30am.  Working on the carrot souffle now.  I'm hoping to do enough today so there's only heating required tomorrow.

The spouse is taking the kiddos out to Henderson swamp for a kayaking trip.  That'll keep them occupied for a while until I get the house cleaned, at least to enjoy our Thanksgiving meal.

Now, for the online spectacular.  A one week event that allows you to save 20% - 50% on paper crafting supplies.  Enjoy shopping online from the computer of your home, avoiding that holiday traffic and over crowded stores.

What's even more spectacular than ordering from your home is FREE S&H with any $150 order or more, which also includes hostess benefits!  Now THAT'S a deal!

Happy Annivesary

We sent the kiddos away for the weekend as it was our 17th anniversary (which was officially Friday).  Well, we only sent them away Saturday night, enough for us to spend quality time together without having to get juice listen to the Wii.

These were sent to the office on Friday.  Spending the rest of the weekend enjoying them.

and the vase they came in....
