afternoon, chickens... hope all's well in your respective necks of the woods! i just came back from gettin' my hairs did (FINALLY - goodbye grey!), and i'm feelin' like a rock star! my hair guy is so awesome - he always tries something slightly different and i always walk out feeling like i just got the royal treatment. totally happy with my new 'do, yessirreebob!
in crafty news, there's a Christmas challenge going on at Charisma
right now! all we wanna see is your Christmas creations - could be with a Christmas theme, could be for a Christmas giftie, could be a Christmas decoration... regardless, we wanna see 'em!
i decided to whip something pretty up using my favourite gal, Kaylee (Mistletoe Kaylee
, in this case), from Some Odd Girl
, and paired her up with a sentiment and chevron pattern from our brand new Make a Statement
clear stamp set... here we go!
i was quite pleased, i'll have you know, because i worked with a teeny-tiny set of just 24 Prismacolor Pencils whilst hanging out at my in-laws' house (as opposed to my full set of 132), and i thought i did well with what was available. ;) maybe it's not always bad to be limited - forces you to think a little more outside-the-box and just make do.
ANYWHO... wanna know what you can win if you play along with our Charisma challenge this week
? well, i'll tell you! first of all -
4 digis from the fabulous MELJEN'S
4 digis from the inimitable The Stamping Boutique!
so there you have it, folks. easy peasy challenge for you, plenty of time to play along (you have until WEDNESDAY night!), and fabby little prize packages to be won! wanna join us? CLICK HERE
and feast your eyes on all of the projects from our talented Charisma Galz
i decided to play along with some outside challenges for a change... these ones, actually!
Cupcake Crafts Challenges
- their theme is Merry Christmas (wouldn't be merry without smooches!)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge
- "what's your favorite?" - Kaylee is my all-time fave, we all know that! :D
The ABC Challenge
- "D for deck the halls" - by hanging the mistletoe so you can steal a smooch!
and there it is... i know it's been a very strange week and the news has left many people feeling saddened and disgusted (my trainer at work actually lost her little nephew in the Connecticut shooting, so it's impacted everyone in our bank), so i just encourage all of you to hold your loved ones a little closer and let them know what they mean to you. don't take anything for granted, and be grateful for every moment. xo
