A little of everything including a GIVEAWAY!!!

I mean really.....sneaking out in your skates????? I would have done it too, Snowden. :)

Forever, I have loved the Snowden snowmen from Target. They line my stairs during the holiday season, and if it happens to snow a little, then 1 of them often sneaks outside to sit in the beautiful snow. Can you blame him?

I don't know how much busier I can get during this season. Between crafting and stamping and working and shopping and wrapping and playing and..and...and.......is Christmas really this weekend??????? Oh goodness!

Every year I think of ornament to make for my family. I have done it for more than 10 years now. I try to get them to everyone on Thanksgiving, so that when they get their tree up in the beginning of December, then they have it ready to add to the collection. But more often than not nowadays I'm lucky to get them to everyone on Christmas Eve. It is fun to look at my sister's and brother's trees though and see all the ornaments that I have made them over the years. :) So here is this years...an idea of my husbands :) It does look nice and he even helped me put them together. We can't wait to give them out. 

Well this week as Christmas approaches and things are busy, I was reminded of one of the most wonderful easy things that Stampin' Up! offers. The monthly Paper Pumpkin box. It comes complete with everything you need to make the project that they have designed. Sometimes it's cards, other times gift card holders, or treat holders. What I love is that it is always a surprise :) Every month I receive this fun box with directions and all the supplies needed. Your first box even includes an acrylic block to keep and it will always fit the stamps in your kits. The stamp sets that you get in the Paper Pumpkin kits are exclusive to Paper Pumpkin and they cannot be purchased separately. The other cool thing....if there is one project that you just love and you want to make more....you can order refill kits. It's so nice, because you don't have to think too much if you don't want to....you can just follow the directions in the box and have a finished project in 30 min, or you can add some of your own items and create something brand new. It's up to you. This was November's box and I just loved it. So wintery :) 



CHRISTMAS WEEK GIVEAWAY is a 1 month prepaid subscription to PAPER PUMPKIN!!!! If you want to continue past that point, you may sign up, but my giveaway is for 1 month. It's so easy. Just go to my facebook page @thestampinrn and comment on the Giveaway link or leave a comment here. Also if you like my page, it will enter you a 2nd time into the drawing.
