A Banner Week

Aren't these birds cute? My daughter helped me make these glittery birds to hang around the house and on the tree for the holidays. She enjoyed it as much as I did!

So, I had to check in because things have really been looking up for me this week! First - I got some really great news. Something I have wanted for a very long time - I was chosen to be a member on the Say It With Letters Design Team! Deb has an amazing product and I am so honored to help spread the good word about her creative alterable letters and shapes! The Design Team has already been assigned their first project and I'll post a sneak peek of mine very soon! Here's a picture of the illustrious Deb and hubby Steven, working hard at their home show last weekend.

Then my sister and I met with the very nice, Dee, over at Village Greenhouse in Henniker. If you're local, you should definitely check out her store. Not only does she sell beautiful holiday wreaths and plants, but she's also opened up consignment space for crafters! Here's some of my signs and wares for sale.

And then, if that weren't enough - over Thanksgiving my Mom, Dad and sister surprised me with gifts for an early birthday celebration! My Mom and Dad gave me a Mary Englebright crafting book and my sister gave me this beautiful birdhouse! Isn't it to die for? I have always wanted one. And it's huge! Thank you, Lisa, Mom and Dad! What a surprise!

Oh - and before I forget - my group TRINKETS is doing a show this Saturday at the St. Theresa's Church from 9 - 3 in Henniker, NH if you're in the area. Stop on by and say hello to us and do some holiday shopping! :)

A little bit of Christmas every day...

So I visited a blog this week with someone who is crafting a "card a day." I was inspired by this idea and have since made one card a day in the last three days. They are very simple but I am enjoying the progress. My friend Deb sent me the link to these holiday sentiment stamps at PaperTrey Ink and I just can't stop using them! She is such an enabler! :) But I love them.
And just look what I received in the mail yesterday from the very talented Lori over at Faerie Window! Isn't this beautiful? Lori, my kids are fascinated with it. I put it by the kitchen window and the snowy glitter catches the light. Thank you so much for starting off my holiday with such a pretty decoration! Go check out her blog and see her other fabulous creations!

Now I'm off to my 101 other projects on this rainy day. Happy creating! :)
