"Let's Play Catch-Up!"

Hi, everyone!! So glad to be back online! Not only did my gal pal, Gina's, husband get me back online, he changed out my monitor to super size, and it is wonderful!!

Let me start off by saying that I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas with their families!! I also hope that you're looking forward to a fabulous 2009!!

In getting ready for Christmas, I had a couple of orders to get ready. I'm going to post them, so you can see what I was up to while my computer was on the fritz.

The first order included this teacher's gift. Mary said her daughter's 2nd grade teacher was very organized, so I thought a decorated box, for her desk, would be the perfect thing to hold the student's emergency cards. I started with an egg box from Papertrey, and covered all sides, including the top, with fun school paper. Using Wacky Tape, I attached the ABC ribbon around the lid. Then, I cut out the teacher's last name with my QuicKutz, and arranged on top. Lastly, for the inside, I included A-Z tabs.

These are the snowman soups I also created for the order. Since Mary's oldest daughter is a cheerleader, I colored the scarves & earmuffs, on the snowman image, our school colors.

Lastly for this order, these are the snowman kisses I prepared for Mary's 2nd grader.

Now, for this order, I created these chocolate pouches for Emily's son's class. For the stamped images on front, I used my new Gift Tag stamps from The Angel Company, and they turned out adorable.

Last, but not least, I created these Magic Reindeer Food for Emily's daughter's class. Again, I was able to use the reindeer image from the Gift Tag stamp set from TAC, on my toppers.

So, this is what I've been up to creatively. I want to thank everyone who placed orders!! I love doing this for you and appreciate your business!! Now, on to 2009! I am looking forward to a fabulous year!!!

Funny how I found your post. I was clicking through the "next post" button and found you. I read your profile and admit I'm a little jealous. My husband and I were suppose to move our little family to Murfeesboro(sp?) July 2008. As you can see that didn't happen. We are still wondering in the Arizona desert. We hope by next May we too will make our residence in Tennessee.
I like to scrapbook and just finished making my son's Eagle Scout ceremony invitations. You projects are amazing. You are a lady of many talents. I hope you don't mind, I intend to follow your blog to see your new creative ideas. I do promise not to use them though. And maybe, just maybe, I can see what goes on in Tennessee.
