Cheers to Friday, friends! How did your week go? We had a very wet few days with lots of rain and wind, and I loved it! Let’s get down to business with today’s handmade gift I received at our recent demonstrator meeting. This beautiful gift was created by Robin Castagnola. She used the Magnolia Memory Dies and the Hot Air Balloon Punch to create these gorgeous magnolia blooms. If you look at page 39 in the Annual Catalog, you will see these blooms. Love it ~ thanks Robin!
Welcome back to a new week, friends, I hope your weekend was grand! Each year my demonstrator group meets in November or early December and yesterday we held our annual Christmas Party with a potluck, shoebox swap, play a silly game, and exchange a handmade gift. This was my gift bag this year, I always change it up, so nobody knows who brought what gift!
Want to see what was inside? I am happy to say that this frame was very easy to put together and I am so pleased with how it turned out. My friend and fellow demonstrator Robin won this gift! The frame is a CASE from the Annual Catalog found on page 23.
Here are some close up pictures of the gorgeous flowers.

At our last demonstrator meeting, we have a door prize drawing. If you bring a door prize, then you receive a door prize! It was so simple and hard not to participate! This is my door prize that I made and used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set (page 14) from the Holiday Catalog to coordinate with my shoebox swap.
Happiest of Fridays, friends! I wanted to share with you a fun little make n’ take that we made at our recent demonstrator meeting. Whitney Watkins design it and I love the use of the wood plank embossing folder for texture. This sweet little box would be great to use for a table setting with your guests name on it!
Happy Halloween, friends! I wanted to share with you a very special gift that I received from my good friend Corie.
