Blog Hop News and My New Christmas Tree!

Happy Thanksgiving Week, Cricuteers!

It’s been a while since my last post.  I’ve been so busy getting ready for the holiday season and working on some fun projects that I can’t show you just yet.  One is a surprise for my sister is having her 16th birthday party this coming Saturday.  I’m trying a project that I’ve never made before and am hoping it turns out the way I am envisioning.  Wish me luck!

The other projects are for two upcoming Blog Hops I will be participating in.  The first is the Black Friday Blog Hop hosted by Crazy About Cricut.  This shopping themed hop should be lots of fun for those staying home this Black Friday as well as those returning from the craziness that will surely be found in stores everywhere.  I will be doing my first blog candy giveaway in honor of the hop.  Be sure to join us Friday morning starting at 12 AM Eastern time.  The second hop is the Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree Blog Hop hosted by Totally Stamps (  This hop will feature great Christmas themed projects and is taking place on Saturday December 4th.  I will have more blog candy that day, too!

In addition to all the crafting and craft planning I’ve been doing lately, we spent last night decorating our house for Christmas.  We aren’t having any company for Thanksgiving this year so I wanted to get my decorating done early.  I just love coming home from shopping on Black Friday morning, turning on the Christmas lights, and curling up on the couch to watch a movie.  I so enjoy this time of year!  I even put a little (and I mean, little) tree in my scrap room / office. I found this fabulous PINK SPARKLY tree at Hobby Lobby… for only $2!!!  It’s only about 5 or 6 inches tall, but absolutely just too fun not to have in my crafting space.

That’s all for now.  Be sure to visit me this Friday the 26th for the Black Friday blog hop and next Saturday December 4th for the Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree blog hop.  I’ll have some fun projects and blog candy to share with you!

Until next time, Cricuteers!
