Stampers Sampler

Hi everyone. I wanted to share that the Stampers Sampler Fall edition which I was featured in is currently out on the new stands. I was so blown away by this honor so had wanted to share it on my blog. Hope you will take a peek at the two Goddess Challenge tags that I created. I really had to go out of box on this one. LOL . I just love this magazine so chose them as my target for getting published. It was a personal goal for me and I was shocked to have been chosen. Thanks for checking in and have a great day.

Christmas Cookie Recipe Cards

Hi my friends. I hope you are enjoying the change in weather and looking forward to November which will arrive next week. We had our first fire in the fire place last night and it was my idea of bliss and everything simple on a busy day. I hope those of you on the East coast will be safe from the storm and are hunkering down. I had some fun in my cave yesterday and wanted to share my Oatmeal cookie recipe that was my mother in-laws. We lost her in May and coming home after a huge Sunday dinner with these in a cool whip container is a very fond memory. I know that they aren't your typical Christmas cookie but I just love them. Not sure what I will do with these yet but maybe I can incorporate them in a gift or project for Christmas. Well that's all for me today. I have a big birthday coming up so wish me luck on getting through that one LOL. I hope to spend it with my friends and family just celebrating life and all that it means. Wouldn't you know it lands on election day. I'm an Eisenhower baby if that gives you any hint as to how old I will be. Oh, my goodness. Take care and have a great week.

Tag 5 Funkie Junkie 12 Tag Challenge ~~~NOEL

Hi my friends. It's been a while since I posted on my blog but we have been super busy and we had a scare with my father in law a few weeks ago which added to the frenzy. Thankfully he is better and is in a rehab home and seems to be getting stronger. Thanks for all the kind wishes that have come my way. I thought I would start again in joining the tag challenge from Linda'</a> so today I have completed tag 5. I took the inspiration from the music and snow flakes that she used and found a wonderful Silent Night image on Pinterest. I distressed it with Tim's tea and walnut stain and adhered with a multi medium.I then embossed the gold snow flakes with Egyption gold EP and stamped the music notes at the bottom both being from a TH stamp set. The brass filigree is from Linda's store as is the natural woven jute that is tied at the top with the little Noel tag. This is a fun challenge and I only hope I can keep up with all 12 tags LOL so go hop on over for a visit. It really puts you in the mood for Christmas which will be here before we know it.
