Lastly ...... I made a Scrapbook for my stepmother for Christmas. She had a wonderful opportunity to travel to Africa in September with her friends to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. She had a wonderful time. When I inquired about her pictures of her trip she said she didn't take her camera. I felt really really bad for her. What a great trip and no memories to keep.

I got in touch with some of her friend's Kodak Galleries and printed off pictures and got some information about who went and what they did (very general). I put together this 28 page scrapbook with pictures, very little journaling, and some wonderful quotes about mountains, friends, and journeys.

I must say this was one of my best scrapbooks yet and I put the whole thing together in under 24 hours. It was cream based with different brown patterned papers. I also did the book in 8x 8 size.

Here was her reaction when opening the Christmas Gift! Priceless!

These were gifts that I made my co-workers ....

These were for the women:

$1 store red whisks with Hershey Kisses and "I whisk you a Merry Kiss-mas"

and these were for the men:

TAC GWP boxes with Hershey nuggets inside. The nuggets had stamped address labels on them. I used the Spirit of Christmas stamp set and then colored them with alcohol markers.
Everyone really seemed to love them ... and they really didn't take me very long at all to put together!
Then in the 3rd week of November .... it was off to Madison Wisconsin for the One of a Kind Stamp Show in the Alligence Center!

It was wonderful! I paired up with 3 other TAC reps: Jenny White, Kathy Tucker, and Jen Bach for a booth at this show. I taught a class to 80 stampers on Friday night and taught to 80 people. We made what I call the "Office Card":

This card used TAC Holiday Vintage paper (now discontinued), green staples, office supply tags, Calendar Stamp Set, Wishing You stamp set, Tag Tidbits stamp set. I used Red 2 cardstock with Landscape Green Palette Ink and L'Amour Red Palette ink.

I think I did really really well on this class .... the next day about 15-20 people came back to our booth and placed orders for the Calendar stamp set.

I loved this card so much I made about 60 more of them for my relatives and friends and used it as my family's Christmas card.

In the second week of November Kim Hutchinson and I were part of a Women's Expo in Janesville WI. It was just a skip and a jump down the road from Kim's house!

We made these cute little "nugget" holders. We had a lot of fun and sold a bunch of catalogs as well as odd and ends of other stuff.

We displayed them on this cute little tree that Kim had .... it was a great addition to our display!

We were going to make those little snowman tags too but the nugget holders were such a huge hit that we just stuck to those!!!

We used the Marvy Merchandise Tag punch for the tops of the nugget holders and stamped them with Tag Tidbits and Mini Occasions.

I was part of a multi home demonstrator party at my friend Jenn's house back in early November.

We had Longaberger, Candlelight, and Pampered Chef there along with myself (TAC).

We made little mini notebooks and cards. Here is a picture of the card that we made:

I used the Winter Tags set from the Fall Supplement. It has great little snowflakes in it that I used for the background and then paper pieced and pop-dotted the tag. I used reflection Blue palette ink with Blue 2 Cardstock.
