Weekly Deals & Giving Thanks!

Oh my gosh!  I can't seem to get caught up this month!!! My posts will be short and quick the next week while I'm trying to get some custom orders finished, entertain company for the week and get my annual hostess tea put together.  I have my 3rd class of the week tonight and one more on Monday before the holidays.  Can anyone tell me how to cram more hours in the day?

Here are our weekly deals which are good through next Monday.

Today's project is an in-laid die cut card.

The verse is from my October Paper Pumpkin kit.  I used some different DSP for the pumpkins and leaves and the Whisper White piece was cut with the Labels Collection Framelits.

The pumpkins and leaves were cut with the Fun Fall Framelits.  The die cut pieces were inlaid in die-cut holes in the card so there is a flat surface.  I'll be doing another one of these soon and will do a tutorial.  
Supplies used:

October Paper Pumpkin Kit

Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, Whisper White card stock

Weekly Deals and a new stamp set!

Yay - I'm back!  The craft show went very well last weekend and I've been trying to catch up on everything that's been neglected the past several weeks.  I'm hoping to get some posts up this week and need to get my work area back in order.  Today I'm getting ready for my garden club meeting tomorrow and cleaning the refrigerator.  I've had to take a break as I discovered the sink was clogged - not my day today.  I will hopefully get to the store tonight to restock my deserted pantry.

I have some extra treat items left over from the craft show that I'm selling to my customers at a discounted price.  If you would like to purchase some stocking stuffers or other small items, please let me know what you're looking for.  I'll take a photo of what I have set up in the living room and post that tomorrow.  I wanted to share a new stamp set and our weekly deals for this week.  Our new stamp set is called Banner Blessings and it's super cute!

Weekly Deals and birthday wishes!

It's been a few days since I've posted but things have been CRAZY here!  I'm working every spare minutes on items for the Li'l Bita Christmas show a week from tomorrow.  Yes, I'm behind and it seems like no matter how early I start, it's always a scramble the last few weeks.  Samantha graduates from high school this year, so I'm REALLY looking forward to having more time - woohoo!  Today I'm working on magnets boards and filling all the candy treats.

I wanted to share the weekly specials with you and some news on some of our back order items.  I also wanted to share some of the wonderful birthday cards I received last month.  I had a workshop on my birthday and several of the ladies made me a card.  I had to guess who gave which card. Needless to say, I failed miserably.  Most of my second guesses were right, but we had a fun time.

We are experiencing some significant delays at our west coast ports due to a breakdown in negotiations with union dock workers. These delays have and will impact items coming in from China until an agreement is reached.  The Wonderful Wreath Framelits Die (item 135851), the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die (item 135853), and the Tree Punch (item 135859) are currently on backorder due to this delay and the list will likely get longer as the strike continues. This may also result in delayed shipping of the November Paper Pumpkin kit.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

My Paper Pumpkin arrived the other day and I finally had a chance to open it this morning.  Here's what was in it:


Lots of fun components in this one.  I only had time to make one of the pie boxes, so here it is:


These were super cute and fun to make.  And guess what?!  They even included a page of other ideas to make with the kit in the box!  I also sent out my subscribers bonus project in the mail, so watch out for that!  If you subscribe to My Paper Pumpkin, extra kits of this project are now available, so if you have a big group coming for Thanksgiving, now is the time to stock up.  The extra projects also show a banner which is what I was thinking about when I first opened the box.  How about a banner with the complete box and die cut letters spelling out "THANKFUL".  Here's a quick video on this month's kit:
