Are you ready?!?

These days it seems like the question is, "are you ready for Christmas?"

And I must shake my head, sigh and confess, "no".

No presents bought (not one!), no decorations or lights hung, and no Christmas cards mailed!!

I have to admit, I am in a bit of a panic.

On top of that I still have to start my mitten swap, design my hostess club project so I envision a busy week. I did get started on making a special order of large sized 12 Days of Christmas tags. These are being used to cheer up a very sick woman and her friends wanted to be able to write a message on the back...here is just one. So far I have 7 done and they range from elegant to rustic to cute.



This tag uses almost exclusively a•muse studio products...I can hardly believe I have been with them now for almost 4 months! I do love it and wanted to make sure you know that the Starter Kit special will only be available until 31 Dec. It's not much time, especially in this busy month, it seems to whiz by! My good friend Risa did an analysis on how much this kit is worth...and at $99 it's a steal - after the special the retail price will go back up to $175...

Basic starter kit includes everything you need to start your own business!

* four 2011 studio sampler stamp sets $25 each total $100
* set of six clear blocks, one of each size $52.70
* ten as pigment ink pads {cranberry, currant, fern, french roast, grass, ocean, orange, papaya, bubblegum and sky} $59.50

* glue pen $2.95
* diamond glitter $4.75

* pearl stickers - vanilla $3.75
* paper flowers - meadow mix $6.95
* three spools grosgrain stitch ribbon {slate, papaya, ocean} $14.85

TOTAL RETAIL GRAND TOTAL $332.55
That doesn't even take the catalogs, business supplies or the swatch ring into account.
