First, Amber suggested that I do a tutorial on the little florets I made for my 'Noel' banner and several others indicated an interest in this too. I'll try to get one posted here sometime in the next week.
Second, I thought I'd share two of my recent purchases with you. I am a serious shoe person. I LOVE funky, colorful and sexy shoes. Anyways, I needed some new winter boots as my old ones were about 8 years old. So I found some awesome ones by my new favorite shoe company Privo. I bought my first pair of Privo's before we left for Europe. They are amazingly comfortable shoes and I heartily recommend them. I was excited to find out that the boots were on sale at my local shoe shop, so I ran in to try them on and left with a smile on my face and the boots in shopping bag! My second purchase is the adorable pumps pictured here made by Indigo Shoes. They look like the perfect holiday party shoes, and they were very comfy. I first saw them when I was at the shoe shop to buy my boots. They didn't have my size, so they special ordered them. I ran in this morning to try them on and was so excited because they'd been put on sale for 50% off!! Yeay! So they came home with me too!
Third, here is another one of the collages that I sold at Silver Bella. It totally made me wish that I'd grown up with a sister. I was so happy that it was bought by a set of sisters who came to the show with their mom. I hope they enjoy it.
Fourth, if you're looking for some holiday inspiration, I'd encourage you to visit my friend Rebecca who is doing an excellent series called 'Christmas from the craft room'. Great ideas there.
Finally, a little Christmas music for you. This is a dance remix of a Sarah McLachlan holiday song...it gets me in a great weekend mood. It's a bit long, but fun.
Enjoy your weekend, I'm off to work on some magazine assignments!
