Tis The Season...OH MY

The tree is up!

Erin do you see the toy soldier?

The cards are in production!
Only time of year I get my stamps out

Made some ornaments!
Amy, Juls, and Erin do you know where I got this idea?

Derek's early present!
Ain't he just the cutest?? Looks just like Daddy on his!

Got my prize! I know you all love when I do this!  I told you on Monday that I won this at Jeannie's Blog but I never expected it so soon.

Look at this gorgeous box!

Gasp! Oh the colors!

I have to tell you all that I wore this all day Monday (still not sure how it got here so fast)  The pictures DO NOT do this justice at all!  I can't wait to work with those beads either! Go over to her blog if you are looking for great Christmas ideas and extremely well made jewelry and gifts!  Thanks again Jeannie I so love this necklace!

Knocked out by FABULISHOUS!  Can you guess who?

Gasp, Gasp, Gasp!!!!!
You are so right if you guessed my sweet Juli over at Julsbeads!  As President, CEO, Queen and Empress of her fan club (yeah it's self proclaimed!)  I am still blown completely away when I am touching these unbelievable beads.  I have had my eye on this set for so long and to hold it is like a gift from the fairies themselves (I still think she may have fairy blood in her!)  If you are looking for fabulishous glass you NEED to visit right now...I mean it go there right now!  I once again may be sleeping with these under my pillow for a while (Dawn you know you do it too!)  Thank you so much Juls for yet another fabulishousbeyondwordsgaspingdelishousness!  I so love you Darlin!

OH OH OH did you all see my new button?  That's right I have been accepted in the Artbeads Design Partner Program!  I have been so blessed by this little blog with winnings, a feature, Artbeads, but most of all I am blessed to have made some of the best friends to share this all with!  Thank you all so much for your inspiration, support, and friendship it means more to me than words can express (and you know I am wordy)

Hugs, Blessings and Happy Holidays to all of you

  14. Kristen, what a fun blog this was!!!! Well I will join the fan club too! I love juls work. I haven't been lucky enough to be able to buy any yet. But someday :) She makes really fun beads :)

    Looks like you are almost ready for the holiday! I took pictures of our trees this week. I planned on getting them blogged, but it hasn't happened yet. So Maybe next week. We are tree fanatics so we have a big one in almost every room. And the ones that won't fit a big one have a tiny one.

    Oh my gosh those beads you won are sooooo beautiful!!! Color me so green with envy :) You certainly deserve to win them though :) Your such a great blogging friend to everyone :)


  15. Oh LissC you have no idea how awesome these beads are! Check out her etsy and pick yourself up a focal and I swear you will melt when you open the package! I hope we talk more soon!
