so sweet of you...


So on Saturday morning I woke up at 4 am...got caught up on my Google Reader {that's a big deal for me} and got crafty!

For those of you that don't know, I have 2 crafting sanctuaries...one is a hallway and one is a room.  I'm  fortunate because it helps me use stuff that I have on hand....the craft room has my PTI stamps...hence the use of the PTI sentiment....

I seem to have most of my Christmas supplies in the room too...


Changing up the photography...that card is sitting on the upholstered stool that I sit on...gold and white damask...it really is quite lovely....I don't need a back on my chair since I always sit on the edge of everything {yes, it is so my feet hit the ground..}..anywho's the stool is on my desk, in front of the window...still need my tent lamps/bulbs for the room...

This card combines the Jingle Belles challenge:



I'm a big fan of the MM Blossoms & Buttons sets...mine are from 2007 so they are in the plastic boxes and not the sweet jars....but hey, they still work:)
