Happy New Year!

Have you been enjoying this week between Christmas and New Years?  It has been so relaxing here at my house.  That's not to say that we've been sitting around, eating bon-bons; quite the opposite is true.  It just seems the pace is slower and more relaxed!  With that in mind, I've had some time to spend in my craft room, playing with the new product that will be introduced with the Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration catalog.  

Today's card uses several of those new products, as well as some vintage favorites.  I hope you like it...and I with a Happy New Year to you!

Quick and cute last minute gift idea!

I have a very quick and cute last minute gift idea for today's post...courtesy of my very talented sister!  This can be adapted for any occasion. 


Adhere a strip of washi tape to a tealight candle (or two), wrap in tulle and tie a ribbon at either end.  Done!
How quick is that?
