Candles to Light the Way

12 21 2017 1-00112 21 2017 2-001

Our Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper has a Christmas hymn theme. I thought it paired well with the candles from the November host exclusive stamp set. This stamp set also featured a reindeer in the sweater and the words “tis the season” which were featured on other cards in previous blog posts.

These were the last cards created for the season. I am just about ready to shelve the holiday paper crafting accessories. I can use the opposite sides of holiday imaged dsp left in my stash for January projects. The opposite sides are usually neutral patterns such as dots, stripes and splashes. Perfect to stamp images and words on for quick focal points.

It is appropriate that the last holiday cards I created featured candle images. Candles are used for celebration, warmth, reading by and also to light the way. Happy Holidays!

Yummy Nice Neighbor Gifts

A photo of dark chocolate squares popped in my Pinterest feed which gave me the idea to fill our mini pizza boxes with delights for the neighbors.

I also had orange flavored tootsie rolls on hand so decided to add those with a nod towards traditions of yesterday when fresh oranges were placed in Christmas socks.

Our coordinating products made assembling the boxes quick and easy. I assembled the boxes while the chocolate was cooling. Deliveries will be made shortly!12 19 2017 4-001

The chocolate recipe is 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1 cup natural cocoa powder, 4 tablespoons honey and 1/2 tsp vanilla from Health Nut Nation. She even has a how to video. Thanks Alison for providing a great resource.

Merry Christmas!

Merry in the Mailbox

I visited the post office right after 9am on Monday to send my cards on their journey to make merry at your house. As I approached the delivery area with the self service doors and slots, someone was trying to gauge whether she should drop in her priority boxes. One door was stuck shut and the other door was able to make clearance but was questionable.

She walked away and then came back pretty quick so I let her drop her boxes in. But Wait! She could only get one box to drop and then the door was stuck shut on that drop box too. I guess the person emptying the bins had not clocked in yet. She proceeded to drop the other boxes into the super huge door even though instructions were for dropping in only certain parcels. And my single cards were not on that list!

So I stuffed my cards in 4 at a time through the card slots and could see I was quickly filling that bin too. I am sure there were lots of other postal patrons there at the crack of lobby opening that dropped their greetings in too.

This was my transport tub. No time to find a festive Longaberger basket. I could have at least stuck some curling ribbon on the side:)


This was the last step of the assembly line this weekend, sealing the flaps while listening to my new #LorieLine King of Kings album. My favorite track is “Daughter of a King” which is a Lorie original that I enjoyed at her concert in Oconomoc a few weeks ago.


Enjoy your merry in your mailbox from me!

Where in the World is the SU catalog?

I was in my old town to share the last senior living session of the holiday season so thought I would stop by my old neighborhood. I use to live close enough that I could hear the calliope and the roar from the big top shows.


I could also hear the train being loaded for the journey to Milwaukee where they would be in the parade and make stops in towns along the way. Exploring the museum to learn the history was fun too.


If you guessed “The Greatest Show on Earth” in Baraboo, Wisconsin, USA, you guessed right! Click on this link to go to their website to learn more about Circus World.

If you take a Where in the World is the SU catalog photo, send it to me so I can include it on my blog. It’s fun to see peeps out and about.

Where is my next destination? I would love it to be the Greek Isles! That is the trip I can earn from SU by being a Super Awesome Stamper, Seller and Team Leader. I am hoping that my 15th year with SU earns me my first trip because the Greek Isles sounds like a trip of a lifetime! If you would like to help me earn this trip, use the Contact button above so we can share ideas for making this happen!
