One week away...

I can't believe how fast this year has passed. As usual I am struggling for inspiration. I like to hand out goodie treats for the holidays to the school staff where I work and to the in house staff I work with. My problem is I like to come up with something different each time. I will probably end up doing goodie bags just because I am out of quick ideas. I tried a couple of things today but was just not satisfied with the results. I know something will come to me. With some good strong coffee I don't need much sleep, haha.
On Tami Whites blog she demonstrated a really cute Grinch and Max the dog mini candy bar holder. I might give that a shot. I hope everyone is having a quiet holiday season filled with love and family. We all need to say a prayer for the families of Newtown who lost loved ones. God bless us all.

Happy Hoildays

Becky and I had a great time on Saturday. We went to a first annual Christmas party put on by three scrapbook stores. It was a wonderful event. We had been looking forward to this for a very long time. We received a great goodie bag full of fun and new products to try out. They had three free make and takes and some really good bargains. They also had some extra stuff we were not expecting... free food! I kid you not, this was fantastic!!! Oh yeah there was also a champaign toast. The whole thing was free! I can't say it enough FREE!
I found some really good stuff and can't wait to have time to try it all out. Becky and I found some alcohol ink pens, Spectrum Noir. They are a lot cheaper than Copic. Now I just need to learn how to use them. I checked out YouTube and found a couple of good videos on them. So if anyone has any tips I am so ready. I love the look you can achieve with them. I already know I will be needing some more colors, haha.
We also got to meet some really nice ladies. That's one of the things I like about going to these things. We are all there because we enjoy all these goodies and can't wait to use them. We get great ideas from each other and we all know how crazy we are. I can only remember the names of two of the companies one was Crafter's Companion and the other one was Bee Creative. I am so sorry I can't remember the third one, but we really want to say thank you to all three. We had a wonderful time. If they do it again next year, I'm there. God bless.
