Oh...coming back from OnStage was like coming home from vacation. I came back exhausted with a ton of laundry! Not to mention, a full schedule of designing December's card classes and clubs, packing the Santa's Workshop orders (shipping tomorrow due to a slight backorder in paper), my mother's birthday, and last night's outing to the symphony. It's a good thing this weekend has no classes planned...I need to clean my house and do my Thanksgiving shopping!
Today, I thought I'd share some of the cards I've received in the mail in the last week or two. After all, what good is making cards if you don't send them?
And Speaking of December classes...here is the class schedule for the month, so you can plan ahead.
Yesterday, I sent an email about the popular holiday items that are on low inventory. If any of these are on your wish list, I wouldn't hesitate to place your order them now. Once they are our of stock, the will not be available again.

Pa I'm in the midst of a big home improvement project right now, which didn't leave me a lot of time to be creative for this week's Crafty Saturday Facebook Live. No worries, Paper Pumpkin came to my rescue!
October's Paper Pumpkin has such pretty fall colors! And it's so on trend right now, too! Just yesterday, I saw tons of DIY decorating ideas with feathers!
If you're new to Paper Pumpkin, it's monthly kit that's delivered right to your door. In addition to a full tutorial and video, each moth you receive a unique stamp set, ink spot (mini ink pad) and all the supplies you need to create fun and cute paper crafting projects. Plus, if it's you first month, you also receive a free clear stamping block, that you can use with subsequent kits as well.
My favorite kits of the year are the holiday kits. Look at this pretty box! I can't wait to see what's inside it. If you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin by November 10, you'll receive this cute box and all the goodies inside it. Just in time for something fun to do at Thanksgiving. Imagine having a few of those around for people to work on while they wait for the turkey to finish cooking? Or put a few out on the kids table for something to do after dinner.
Paper Pumpkin...there's something for everyone inside!
I've partnered with my talented and good friend Heather Tyman from The Faithful Stamper to bring you TWO awesome online classes! Choose one or both and get a free tutorial! Each class includes the paper and embellishments you need, and you can add on the Signs of Santa bundle if you choose! Join the fun with us! CLICK the photo to learn more!
As we wrap up this week's series with the Making Christmas Bright Bundle, I want to tell you of my struggle this week. See, there were two days this week where I went to my ribbon rack in search for matching ribbon only to come up empty handed. Once was on my Halloween Card yesterday, and the other was my #CaseingTuesday169 card.
Undeterred, I grabbed a spool of Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon and my Blends, and made my own ribbon in Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie. Simple cut of the length you need, and swipe your Blend marker across it. Make sure you have some scratch paper underneath it! Let it dry a few seconds, and you're on your way to personalizing your projects with your own designer ribbon.
