MOPS Leadership Gift

I love making Christmas Gifts for people because well... THAT's WHAT I DO!! I guarantee you get the best response from something you have put your heart, sole, and hard work into. I struggled with what to give my MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) Leadership Team this year and when it came down to it, I thought what could be better than handmade cards. MOPS is about connecting with other Mom's and I believe one of the basic ways to do that is to give handmade cards with handwritten notes. Here is the final gift I came up with:

I LOVED these ornaments! I found them when visiting a friend in TX in the Target Dollar Spot. My awesome husband formatted the info I wanted inside and helped me put them together. I am really happy with this gift and think it is kind of special, don't you?

Fun Holiday Gift

Hello my fellow creative ladies!! I am just reeling over how I have again lost track of time. My brain is definitely functioning slower with this second pregnancy. I have lots to share over the next couple of days, but I am going to kick this series of posts off with fun Cocoa Treat Cups I made for a friend, who gave them as teacher's gifts..

I had made these a few years ago and had a great time revisiting this project and of course adding some much needed updates.


Stamp Set: Cold & Cuddley, Snowflake is from a retired set; Paper: Night of Navy, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White; Ink: Whisper White Craft, Night of Navy, Chocolate Chip; Misc: Word Window Punch, Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon, Sticky Strip

I am excited to announce the Co-Founder and CEO of Stampin Up! Shelli Gardner will appear on the Today's Show this Friday as they recognize Stampin Up! for their charitable giving over the past few years.

So, I invite you to tune in and check out Shell's interview! I will be taping it, so I can watch it later in the day. This is exciting to me because I truly believe Stampin Up! is a caring company, and to get the invitation to appear on the Today's show is just another reminder of that fact.

Happy Watching!! Christie
