It's Christmas Eve Eve!!!!!

Yup. The day before Christmas Eve is Christmas Eve Eve. Just say'n. I have to work today, which is a bit of a bummer, but, alas, I shall live. HA! I think I will leave early, though. I mean, afterall, it IS Christmas Eve Eve! Squeeeee!!!!! I want to show you the little calenders that I made for my co-workers as Christmas gifts! I got the cases and the print out (I bought the kit, so mine were printed, but I have the PDF file, too) from Little Potato House!

Project time


This was a coffee table project - TV made it more fun! YAY! I began with a stack of 12 ink colors, 12 stamp selections, several calender sheets that I had already cut, and a handful of appropriately sized blocks, and then I went to town to create these! Oh...and beer. Definitely beer. Just say'n. HA!

  4. These are so cute...I actually thought one of the cards you posted yesterday was a calendar until I clicked on it and saw it was stickles. So I think it is funny that today you actually post a calendar! Merry Christmas.

  9. Just got home last night but trying to steal some moments to catch up with bloggies before the first of my company arrives at 11 today. I have people arriving ALL evening, through tomorrow night. THEN a few coming just for Christmas dinner. Gloriaski! So LOTS to do! But I read all your posts for the week & loved both your projects AND YOU, YOU, YOU! Merry Christmas, happy lil' Jingle-girl! I just absolutely think you should be cloned, passed around to the world, and allowed to make EVERYONE as glad as you make ME!
