Joy . . . the Season of Giving!


Joy Zipper Tree

Hi Peeps!

How’ve you all been?!!  I know it’s been a few days since I posted last.  The holidays, family, blah, blah, blah . . . right?!  LOL  I’m sitting here watching the repeat of Oprah’s Favorite Things, and it reminded me that I have so much to be thankful for.  I have an amazing husband who has tolerated my nonsense for the last 32 years (we dated for two years, and he STILL decided to marry me!  LOL)  My kids make me so proud every time I look at them and realize what incredible young women of God they have become.  My son-in-law is everything and more than I could have ever wished for in a son-in-law.  And then there’s my sweet, sweet little Brecken.  Words cannot describe the love I have for that sweet, sweet little boy.  It’s hard to imagine that I could love another child more, so I hope I have some left to give when the rest of our grandkids get here!  LOL  But he will always and forever be my first grandchild.  *Sigh*


But I’m also so thankful and grateful to you all, for your sweet comments that you leave, for the time you spend visiting me here, and for being the best virtual friends a girl could ever ask for!  LOL  So, if I haven’t told you lately, thank you for visiting me here and for encouraging me in what I love to do.


I thought I’d pop in to share this little project that I made and submitted to the last Paper Crafts Magazine pub call.  Yeah . . . once again, a big, fat LOSER!!  LOL  But I had so much fun making this project, so in the end I didn’t feel like such a loser.  LOL  Yes, my friends, it’s another zipper project!  Seriously, these zippers are so much fun to work with!!  I’ll definitely be using them again on future projects – so funky, right?!!


I also wanted to remind you that you have the rest of today and all day tomorrow to get your projects entered for the ABC Toys & Crafts DT Challenge – Nontraditional Holiday Colors!!  Come on, chickies!  We’d love to see what you’ve created!!  Also, there’s a day or two left on the 20% off at ABC Toys & Crafts, too – that offer expires tomorrow night, I believe. 


I’ll try to stop by again on Monday to share some last minute cards I cased from Kristina Werner . . . she’s such a clever girl, I tell ya.  So I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll look forward to visiting with you again next week!

Very cool card! I would like to see you use the zipper as a rosette! If you have time in between family and the holidays and everything else that tears you (and everyone else!) away from your stamp room! I've never worked w/ zippers, so that would be fun to see! {HUGS}
Oh and PS: You are NOT a loser because they didn't pick up your card! Your stuff is amazing!

This is such a great card, love the colors. I hope you have a great Christmas and I will see you back at ABC Toys and Crafts in the NEW YEAR!

What a cool and clever design. I love this card! (I know I am a little late to be oogling Christmas cards, but I'm always a little behind the times...) Happy New Year!
