Welcome! I am on the Color Masters team and I am sharing stories, projects and my own RAK... so sit back and enjoy!
First project are some gift card holders that I created..
they make great stocking stuffers or main gifts!
Second project are handmade tags- I used some of my new Stampin up goodies!
Here are a few cards that I haven't shared yet on my blog!I created these lottery ticket holders to give away this year for Christmas as stocking stuffers! Story: My favorite gifts that I have given are always the handmade ones. Last year, I made scrapbooks for my father in law and nephew. I have numerous ones that I have in mind for this year!



Advent tag book: I created this tag book on Monday for my kids and I to use throughout the holiday season. On each tag, there are special activities or things for us to do together. On some tags there are even special treats for them. It has been keeping them busy as well as "scheduled quality time". Last night, the tag read: Bryce gets to watch a movie with Pop Pop and Daddy and Clara gets to scrapbook with Mommy. The other day, we all watched a Christmas movie while cuddling on the chair together then reading a special Christmas story before bed. Today, we will be baking blueberry muffins!!! I highly suggest this for your family!



Favorite Christmas Movie: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
Favorite Christmas Song: White Christmas
Favorite Christmas Memory: My Aunt Shelley sleeping over and my grandparents arriving really early to watch us open our Santa Gifts!
Other favorite memory: Watching my Pop Pop sit on Santa's lap!

Love your work. My favorite christmas song is a funny one local to New orleans, LA and it is the Twelve Yats of Chrimstmas. One of the reasons I love it is that in elementary school my daughters class animated the song for a Christmas program and it was so cute. (crawfish....)
