I had a long drive on Tuesday but I made it to New Jersey with no traffic or weather problems. I was surprised to see snow in Connecticut and New Jersey since we did not have any snow that stayed on the ground in Massachusetts. It has turned really cold everywhere - I think winter has arrived!
I usually drive to my sister's home and stay for the night when I come to New Jersey to pick up our son from college. We always have a project or two to work on and I think you can guess from the photo what we were up to yesterday.
The glitter ornaments have been all over the crafting blogs and websites for a couple of years now. In case you somehow missed the excitement, here is a LINK to a post from last year where I give all of the details on how to make these wonderful glittery globes - it is so much fun to do! I use the "floor wax" method but there are some companies that have special adhesives you can use to make these ornaments.
There were some extra special ornaments but I can't share photos of these until after Christmas - you never know who is reading!
I didn't get much computer time so I know I am behind on emails and messages. I did see some comments about the ribbon I used to make the tags. Some people don't have a Costco nearby or could not find this ribbon at their store. I know I had to dig back into the boxes to find it. I saw the sample hanging on the ring and I knew I "needed" some of this ribbon!
The ribbon comes on huge spools and I know I probably won't use it all up so I'd like to offer a little gift of a couple of yards of ribbon to seven readers of my blog (just because seven is one of my favorite numbers!). If you can't find the ribbon and would like to put your name in the hat to win some please leave a comment on this post and be sure to leave a way I can contact you (Google profile, blog address, message board name, email address, etc.). I will pick seven winners sometime this weekend and mail out the ribbon on Monday.
I will try to write up the tag directions later and if I finish, I'll post them tomorrow. My son and I are headed to PA to see my Dad so I can't be sure that I'll get a chance. It is amazing to me to think that he only has one more semester of college left (but it will be nice to be done with the tuition bills!)
I also wanted to let you know that my friend Terri at Stamps Alive is having a sale. She always has great prices, but this sale will last only until Friday night at midnight (Pacific time). You might want to check it out for a last minute gift - maybe for yourself!
I hope you are having a good week and enjoying some holiday events - we have a very busy weekend once we get back and next week our older son will arrive from San Francisco. It is always so nice to have everyone together even if it is only for a few days.
