believe in...

Hello & Happy November!

Can you believe it is November?!!!! 

Today is E.A.D Designs blog hop {officially starts at 10 am EST}, you should have hopped here from Jenn's blog: 


If not, start at the beginning of the hop which is the E.A.D Designs blog.  You don't want to miss out on all the projects!  Today's theme is Christmas and Holiday Gifts!


I wanted to give a big Woot Woot for our November Guest DT: 


Okay, onto my projects for today...I'm a huge fan of Trader Joe's...check out my altered Trader Joe's Chocolate Bar:


I covered the bar with Echo Park paper and used a sentiment from the E.A.D Designs Deck the Halls Stickerz!  I added the pink poms for a festive touch:)  I bought the chocolate for the man...he loves dark chocolate {more for him...I'm a milk chocolate fan}....hmmm....he is such a choco-holic so I'm sure he won't mind the girlie-ness of it:)

Next up are a couple mugs:


I used the E.A.D  Designs Caged Vinyl Rub on's for the mug on the left...and E.A.D Designs Torendi Exclusive A Kawaii Day Vinyl Rub-on's for the mug on the left...the best part of the mugs...got them at Target for under $0.80 each...woot woot!!!    I haven't decided if I'm going to sock them away for Christmas gifts or bring them into work for ME to use...muwahahahaha....

Well, you're at the end of the E.A.D Designs blog hop....thanks sooo much for hoppin' by!

P.S.  Wanted to give you a peek at the E.A.D Designs November Steal:


Buy Yours Today!
