Where did 2019 go??? Greetings, my friends! I can't believe that I missed the November and December posts! I was busy as a bee getting things decorated inside and out. My husband is in charge of the fabulous light show outside and his famous Macy's window in our Den bay window. I am in charge of all the other interior decorations with his help. Every year we put up 6-7 decorated trees averaging 6' tall. We love Christmas and decorating to the hilt. Now, taking everything down is another story! The inside is about 50% down and packed, the outside about the same. Thanks to my Sis-In-Law and a dear friend, the inside has gone smoothly. Updates to share! I hope you all received the new Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Occasions catalog) that was mailed out late December! January 3rd you could start purchasing from it, and don't forget our Annual Sale-A-Bration has started! Free items with a $50.00 purchase from the Mini or Annual catalog. There are some cute things this year. If you need assistance on choosing when you get your catalog, just let me know. You can order right here on my page. Now let's catch up...Our November Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering was sooo fun! We made "samplers". I purchased some 8x8 frames and made 2 samples that the gals could go with. The imagination that was shown was just amazing. Here are some of the pictures of their handiwork! First are my samples: Here are some of the gals and their projects...they all turned out just beautiful! We all had such fun and the food of course was a big hit too! It always is! Decembers Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering featured our Annual Cookie Exchange! I always treat my peeps to a complete lunch and they bring cookies to eat and trade! We had some awesome cookies that my husband and I enjoyed for a week after our Gathering! Our project was an older Stampin' Up! kit that made Star boxes. I had two kits and had tried to use it up several years in a row! So,...

Luck O' The Irish! Dia dhuit! (That is hello in Irish!) Even though I am Swedish and French I like to embrace the Irish holiday. As they say, everyone is Irish for one day in March! Let's cover the latest news first! As you probably know, when we have Sale-A-Bration, there are TWO releases. The second release is available March 3rd! To see the 2nd Release Sale-a-Bration brochure Click Here Both releases are good through March 31st. Purchase $50.00 and you qualify for one of the free items marked with the "Free with $50 purchase" logos. If you purchase $100.00, there is the logo for $100. Purchases can be made from the Annual Catalog and the Mini Occasions Catalog. If you need either of these catalogs and the Sale-A-Bration booklet let me know (note: my order for the 2nd release has not come in yet, so please use the link above). Our February Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering was so much fun! We did a card camp on a smaller scale. I don't know how people handle the 15 card camps. I can barely make up 5, so that is what I stick to. My team and guests like the smaller version, so that helps ease my mind. Here are the cards I made as the samples. Credits for my CASEing... The Lily Pad was CASE'd from Angie Juda. She did it in the Subtle papers and so I just changed it up using the Lily Pad paper. Thanks Angie! The Iris - thanks to Shannon at shannonkaypaperie.com. I loved this one so much, I had to CASE it completely. Tropical Oasis Die Cut Window - Thank You Wendy Cranford for your super video on how to make this card. The Honey Bee card, I partially cased from my friend Tracie Salo when we did a swap, but I also saw a similar one from Karen Ksenzahovic that was similar. So Thanks to Tracie and Karen for the sweet honey inspiration. The Poppy card was also a CASE from my friend Mary Beth Guzzo in the same swap with Tracie and others. Just used some...
