Eight Things.

1. 31 Days of Christmas Acrylic Album
I got a lot of feedback about this book when I posted a photo of it a couple of days ago. I taught it last weekend, and it sold out almost immediately. So I made some more. And those went too. I got several requests for more photos, so here are a few...
I have compiled enough people now to do yet another group of these books. If you would like to be on the wait list, please email Trish at Turay413@gmail.com. The kit for this book costs $35 plus shipping, and they would ship out on Monday, November 24. Any leftovers will be up on the Etsy site.
And as a little bonus, anyone who makes any Etsy purchase before December 1 will receive a dozen of the cute little gingerbread people (as seen in the photo below...)
2. The Fiskar's Gingerbread Man Punch. Man, I'm in love with this thing. I found it at Archiver's.
3. Cheryl & Co. cookies. Seriously. I have to say, these are my all-time favorite. Go for the mix below if you're in need of an outstanding hostess gift for Thanksgiving. The frosted spice pumpkin cookies brought me to my knees.
4. My giant cornucopia. Sorry for the poor pic. But it is a reminder to all of you to look for clearance items while you're in the throws of Christmas shopping. I got all this fake food for this horn aplenty on clearance one year, and I filled it so it overflows. I simply cover it with a bag year after year, and bring it out for the holiday in my dining room. It is literally 4 feet long and I got it all at Michael's.
5. My paper pieced turkey. I was given this by a gal who wanted to remain anynomous at the crop, but it is too cute not to share. Great use of that cool ribbon, eh?
6. White chocolate and peppermint. One of my favorite combos during the holidays. I found this at Target yesterday...
...and these too. Both will go great with cookie baking (but mine won't make it that long)...
7. I also found these Advent Calendars at Target on sale. I like to get a bunch of them for my nieces and nephews for Thanksgiving and I wrap them up like presents. After dinner we pass them out and they act surprised. The dance we do. But it is a great tradition that is fun and I wanted to share...
8. Two new Christmas CD's. Since my sister does Thanksgiving every year, I've decided to start decorating a bit early this year, and these two have me in the spirit. I'd love to hear your new favorites too!!
Thanks guys!! Have a super weekend!!
