Hi everyone, We are having a great time at the leadership convention in San Antonio Texas. Here are the adorable gifts we got when we got here, along with our leadership bag! Wee had a great day today with a ton of great training. Donna Griffin and pasty Waggoner thought a great class called retaining and engaging your downline. Patsy had some great tips of encouragement and how to help your downline want to stay active. Then we attended a class with Shannon West about our title benefits. She went over all the perks in being a manager and what is to come with the next few promotions. The last class today was with Amy Swartz and Paula Critchlow on including a new generation in your stamping business. It was a great class, except for the horrible video they showed of me:). We have Reginals tomorrow and I am looking forward to a great day of information and stamping! I\'ll be home soon and back to stamping with lots to share. I am inspired and ready to grow my stamping team and business.
So I made a ton of Christmas Cards this year, as I do every year...that isn't my hold up! It's The addressing! So since Chirstmas came and went, I decided that I would do a New Year's Card on MDS(My Digital Studio) And here is what I came up with...
So even though I did not get nearly to amount of handmade gifts done that I wanted to
here is one I did...
I know the above picture is a bit difficult to see, and my watermark isn't really helping the situation! But it is an "R" made from corks. My mom had been saving them for some time, and I had taken them to make my parents this framed monogram for the wall. It looks much clearer in person:)
I know it is past Christmas, but I still have just a few things left to share! Here are two nugget tins that I made for the office staff at Makai's Preschool. I LOVE these tins! I had made a bunch up and sold them around the holidays...they were a hit!
Today I wanted to share the class gifts I made for Makai's teachers
(I also made a similar set for Kamili's teacher)
Here is both of the sets together.

And the group card...We had each kid make a "page" wishing a Merry Christmas to there teacher, then put it together on binder rings! I thought they turned out cute and I was able to avoid trying to hunt each parent down to sign a card:)
I can't believe December is almost over! It has been a crazy month to say the least. I have two great Projects to share with you from Craft Project Central! I am sorry to double post them, but I ran out of days:( They are both so cute though that you won't want to miss out on signing up for Decembers subscription!
This first project is an adorable Mini Circle Box & Card, Julie Edmonds at www.inkrediblestamping.com created this cute little Valentine's gift!
I love the cookie press from Stampin' Up! I have used it a few times now and I am excited to get it out again for Valentine's Day! Look at the beautiful Sweet Pressed Cookie Box & Card set that Lynn Weiss created. You can check out more of her work at www.lwdesigns.blogspot.com
So all of my club members participated in a cookie/tag exchange in place of the typical club meeting for December! Here are the tins I came up with to hold my Peppermint candy cane sugar cookies.
I just took a standard soup can, and covered it with DSP(that I had stamped on) Added Very vanilla Card stock to the center and a ribbon around the outside. I used my distressing kit(which I am in love with) and added a little vintage touch!
Good morning ! I have another great project to share with you from craft project central.
