A Merry Christmas to All

A very Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful visitors! If you have been following the Advent box count down over at A Muse news, you may have been wondering what goodies were in the cute little projects. Well, the anticipation is over. I'm getting ready to share the goodie I placed in my box and if you would like a peak at all the others just check out this AMN post for days 1-12 and this post for days 13-24! So what did my cute little Annabelle share for Christmas:
Chocolate, of course! These little Lindt Milk Chocolate candies are a "bribe" I use on my DD for cooperation in Michael's. You can always find them at the check out counter and for .39 they are a lot of bang for the peaceful shopping buck!

So what goodies did Santa bring you for Christmas? He was super good to me! I received the new pink Bind-it-all- something I had been wanting for quite a while! Can't wait to play with it and have projects to share on my blog! I, also, received the Giga Scallop Heart punch and the Mega Classic Heart punch by Marvy (just in time for Valentine's A Muse projects) and some Copic markers to add to my ever growing collection. The girls got a Wii to share so the entire family had enjoyed that today! Truly a blessed day! Wishing you a new year of fun Times and inky fingers! Take care!

Jacksonbelle Embellishments DT Announcement and Blog Prize Winner

Yes, I have been a bad blogger lately! Between Christmas activities and having one very sick little Rachel at my house, by necessity my beloved crafts and blogging have had to take a back seat. Today I had such exciting news that I just had to peep in for a minute and share. So without further ado, I would like to announce the new (and returning) members of the Jacksonbelle Embellishment DT:
What an awesome group of talented ladies, huh! I cannot wait to begin our weekly challenges and all the inspiration this group will bring!!! We will be kicking it off with an awesome New Year's Eve party so be sure to keep an eye out for the fun details!

On another fun, note I am pleased to announce that the winner of my blog candy is #7- Tinla! Tinla is a very talented stamper and huge A Muse fan so this prize is right up her alley! Congratulations, Tinla! If you will please send me your postal info. I will get those out to you ASAP! Also, don't forget to be checking out the daily Advent box count down on A Muse News! Wishing everyone fun Times and inky fingers! Take care!

Holy Cow!

It has been too long since I last posted! Life is crazy busy but I do think that there is some relief in sight! I am working on a couple of projects and hope to be able to post one of them tomorrow. In the meantime, today was my day to shine on the A Muse blog! I had day 13 on the Advent calendar and I would love for you to go and check it out! Since I am getting closer and closer to my 30,000 hits marker, why don't we make this a game and have a prize opportunity. Just take a look at the A Muse blog, and tell me the name of the cute little girl on my advent box in a comment on this post. On Friday, December 19th, I will choose one winner via random drawing to win a little sampler pack of 10 A Muse notecards that I will put together, along with some yummy A Muse ribbon. Easy Peasy. While you are there be sure to check out days 1-12 of the calendar. These little boxes are adorable! Wishing you fun Times and inky fingers! Take care!

December 1st

One of the fun things that I remember as a child was counting down the days of Christmas on an Advent Calendar. The tradition has continued with my children and they love it as much as my sisters and I did! To celebrate the holiday seasons the members of the A Muse Creative Team have each made a cute little box to be posted on A Muse News each day from now until Christmas Eve. Please be sure to check these sweet little boxes. Wishing you fun Times and inky fingers! Take care!
