Wrappin' up the week w/ some Christmas treats...

Hey everyone!

Well, it's here!   MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE!

Looking back on this year, boy do I have a lot to celebrate.   It's been a FANTASTIC 2010 and I can only hope that 2011 is even BETTER!

Before we all disperse to our family and friends for these blessed next few days, I have my contribution to The Greeting Farm's "Hostess with the Mostest" contest.   Here is my hostess gift, for my Mom with cookies made by the kids:

Our favorite Christmas cookies are the traditional cookie press cookies and the kids went WILD baking them for the 2nd time this season.  We had SUCH a blast last night sprinkling and SAMPLING lol..what a fun family activity!  The tag is from the "Merry Tags" set by TGF.  The stickers and paper are Echo Park "Wintertime" collection and the Mini Bakery Bag is from Taylored Expressions :)

Be sure to check out the TGF Blog today for a few more samples and that's about it for me today!

I'm excited to share a lot of fun things w you in 2011...I have a new team coming up as I've been asked to design for The Twinery for 2011 and I'm thrilled about that!   I am hoping to renew my Key Ingredients term as I ADORE Taylor and her wonderful kits and will let you know more about that soon, too :)  I will be amping things up at The Greeting Farm , and will also be taking on more excitement with Unity Stamp Co. as they are going to be BOOMING in 2011.

On a personal note, I will continue to write, erase, edit, erase, and write before I can finally put the finishing touches on my book as it goes to publishing houses for the 110573639 rejections I will probably get before someone finally takes a leap of faith (I hope?).   I am preparing for some traveling in the new year as well and I will have TONS of exciting things to share.  

Thank you so much for sticking with me...and now....

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all and to all a GOOD NIGHT!  :)
