Gingerbread Men, Candy Canes, and Trees...oh, my!

Well, good morning I did not completely disappear.  Working those few days last really really messed with my crafting time..sheesh!  It was neat to get a paycheck with my name on it again though!  I have several things that I'll be sharing with you this week though so hold on!
Today I'm sharing the six candy bar wrappers that I made for my PEO Chapter's silent auction in about a week and a half.  This is another project inspired by the 12 Days of Christmas tutorials from Becky's blog at Inking Idaho.  I just love how fun these are!  They will be great for whomever wins them to give them as a gift topper or maybe even a RAK!  See the little gingerbread men?  The have Sugar & Spice scented embossing powder on them...they smell so good! 

I'm so enjoying making Christmas will be hard to go back to fall/Thanksgiving although I really should!

I have some exciting news!  On Friday evening I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator again!  I'm so thrilled to have gone back to my roots in crafting!  I will, very soon, have a link up to my SU! website so you can go shopping if you'd like!  What that means for my blog is you'll see a lot more SU! and when I use things that aren't SU! I will not be linking to them.  I have stepped down from my DT's so as not to cause a problem there.  I am really thrilled to have taken this step!  I don't want you to worry...I will not have more business news about SU! then photos of projects as I want you to still want to come back here but I will be telling you of sales and such that SU! has 'cuz I want you to get great deals too!

Anyway, have a great Monday!  We are celebrating Scott's birthday with him today and headed up to the local college to hear a brass concert.  Should be a great day!
