A Christmas ornament, CTMH style!

A fun way to dress up your tree. Curl paper strips (about 1/4 inch wide, 6 inches long), place inside a clear glass ornament. Add a tag - don't forget the date! Mine is on the back. Lots of fun for kids, too.

To curl strips, strip them like you would curl ribbon with scissors, then wrap around a pen tightly, carefully pull off and your ready for the next one! Have fun!

Don't forget - it's Stampaganza time!

Just a reminder that Close to My Heart's awesome special this month - buy 2 Acrylic stamp sets get one free - is good until next Monday the 30th! Don't miss out on this great opportunity to stock up on all those stamps you've been wanting. Don't forget that there are several stamp sets about to retire at the end of the year, too, so this may be a great time to get them before they're gone! See the details online at

My next gathering will be on the 30th, if you would like to attend or place an order, please contact me and I will get you the details!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Creative Basics Jingle Collection

One of my favorite products in each catalog is the Creative Basics Collection. You get several sheets of two designs and coordinating ribbon! So many fun possibilities! Here is a little accordion album I made using cardstock and just part of two sheets of paper, ribbon & a few sparkles. It is perfect for wallet size photos! It would make a cute little stocking stuffer, too!
