Inspiration Monday

As I am sure many of you are in full swing Christmas mode, I wanted to stop in and share what our incredible design team has been busy creating.  This is a time of year when sometimes crafting gets put on the back burner to make room for decorating the Christmas tree, and rolling the favorite cherry and peanut butter balls.  Today I finished a stunning Christmas kit that I had promised myself I WOULD complete before Christmas day.  My goal was accomplished and it felt great to sit down and slow down for a bit to just create.  I recommend you all to take at least a few minutes to create a tag, a card or stamp that plain gift bag.  If you need some inspiration look no further because our design team always comes through with stunning ideas and be sure to share your creations with us here to get in on the random draw by December 31 at midnight.

Lisa Hoel is getting ready for the Holiday season and has come up with a great way to include gift cards with her yummy goodies.  I love this idea Lisa, a perfect gift for those holiday parties throughout the festive season.

Tis the Season

Happy December everyone, I trust everyone is in the swing of things for the holidays, celebrating in true fashion.  I always find this time of year so hectic getting ready for Christmas parties, get togethers and everything that goes with the holiday season that we sometimes forget to slow down.  I hope you are able to take some time to reminisce of the year that is coming to a close and appreciate all the blessings we have had over the year.  As I look back I realize it is not the material things that has brought me joy it is the people in my life, near and far that are what matter.  It is not money that brings happiness, it is people!  I may not be able to afford all the newest and fanciest things but the love from family and friends is priceless and is far more important.  This industry has connected me to some amazing people that I consider lifelong friends and that I am blessed for.  As you enjoy the holiday season I hope you take some time to slow down and reminisce about what has brought you joy and also get to do a little crafting. Since everyone’s holiday traditions are as unique and individual as they are, what better theme for December then Tis the Season: everything goes! That’s right, there are no restrictions we just want to see you crafting and coming up with something unique to you!  This month’s random winner will be receiving a prize package value at over $50 from Inspiration Emporium.  All projects shared with us below will have their name entered into the random draw but be sure to do so before midnight December 31, 2015 so you don’t miss out.
