This nutcracker isn't really blue, he's happy. I know he looks mad but that is just his serious face. Nutcrackers are like that. Nut cracking is serious business. Not that I crack any nuts with my nutcrackers. They are too beautiful for that.
I can't get enough of this stamp set, particularly this nutcracker image. I have said it before but I will say it again: So much fun to color with the blendabilities! The back ground is made by stamping the images from the Bright & Beautiful stamp set with versamark, pouring white embossing powder on the versamark and heating with my heat tool.
The holiday catalog goes live today so go nuts and start ordering from it(pun intended). You can click on any of the links below to order. I also have a link to the Holiday catalog in my sidebar. If you don't have a hard copy and would like one, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to request one. It is fantastic!

Our van died yesterday. At first we thought it was the battery, but now it looks like the alternator. He got a referral from the auto parts store for a shop to work on it and so far we are pretty pleased with the repair guy. We may have found our new go to guy for car repair in Texas! Such an important connection to have.
The boys seem to be adjusting well to school. We need to find some work/school balance for Nick. He was scheduled to work every day this week and is already getting run down. Even he admitted it!
I'll be back in a separate post to talk more about the Holiday catalog and a new hostess promotion starting.
Thanks for stopping by today!
