For You...

Christmas Eve...can you believe it?!

Earlier this week I had coffee with a friend of mine...we graduated from high school together...oy...many, many years ago...like over 26 years...sigh..makes me sound old:)

What could be a better giftie than candy...Trader Joe's Candy....I altered this can of peppermint sticks to give my friend:


It's chock full of goodness...October Afternoon paper, Stampin' Up feltie snowflake, American Crafts Flair, Basic Grey tag, Cosmo Cricket tiny type and bakers twine from the Twinery!


Well, I'll be back on Sunday...taking the day off the blog tomorrow...spending some quality time with the family:)  Happy Holidays everyone!!!

Full of goodness, for sure! How fantastic that you are able to reconnect with a high school friend! I love that my great girlfriends from my high school days (well, one from my school, two from another & we all met through Girl Scouts) are still my girls. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!! (I'm off to catch a wink or two before I have to get up & finish wrapping presents...thankfully, I don't have to do any of the cooking though thanks to hubs & wee girl! :>:>)
