Let there be light....






We have shown a modicum of restraint this year in our holiday outside decos...gone is the huge inflatable snow globe, banished to the back are the reindeer, gifted to Ed and Deb, our good neighbors in Ft. Myers, is our 5 foot lit snowman...and we are left with this modest display of lighting. We are a bit different in our neighborhood of white icicle lights with our candy cane striped palm trees in the front and our healthy dash of color amongst the twinkles.

Today we hoist our big Santa, who shorted out on us last year and no longer sings or dance, onto the rock fountain above the pool...we've been talking about getting Ol' St. Nick in place for over a week and I think today is the day.

________________________LOTS HAPPENING TOMORROW___________________________________

December 1st. marks the half price sale for Hang Ten Paper Arts kits. You can check with www.hilltopmemories to see which ones are on the list. This is a good chance to pick up a kit you may have missed or to get one as a gift for a friend.
Hang Ten takes off every year for the month of December. We wish you and your family the happiest of holidays and watch for a great kit coming your way Jan. 1. I'll post more details on that as the time gets closer.

Dec. 1st. is also the day my Techniques column goes up at KnK Club. This month I worked with stencils and all the wonderful things you can do with them and inks, paints, gel pens, hand stitching...and, well, just stop on by and see for yourself...www.knkclub.com. Also, Gerri-anne, the owner is offering a free shipping deal for store purchases. If you do not get the newsletter, sign up now!

Dec. 1st is a great time also to get inspiration at Creative Scrap Shack. There is a new contest in Island Maps forum, the Reveal from the DT is tomorrow and the new challenges will go up tomorrow as well.

Don't miss the fun!
