Guest Designing at Everyday Cricut

I have mentioned a few times that I have been working on a lot of projects for Valentine's Day.  I have also mentioned that I'll be a Guest Designer next week, but I haven't told you where.  I am happy to tell you today that Joy and Melanie at Everyday Cricut have asked me back for another week of Guest Designer posts.  I am excited to share the projects I have designed and I am still busy turning them from design files into actual projects.  The photo above is a tiny sneak peek at something I am using - to find out more you will have to be sure to check out the Everyday Cricut blog starting tomorrow, Monday, January 10th.

We had some of our neighbors over for the last of the holiday parties today.  There was a big storm predicted but it didn't come our way - yet...  One good thing about a party in the neighborhood is that everyone can walk (it is a very small neighborhood!).  We keep our holiday decorations up well into January - sometimes even into February.  It is fun to enjoy them when everything else has gone back to normal.

We have a lot of young families on the street and I am starting to feel like one of the "old ladies" on the street!  It really is nice to see all of the little children around again - the last batch grew up and went off to college and beyond.

Our youngest son and his girlfriend made another great chocolate cake.  They frost the cake by cutting a candy car into small pieces and sitting them on the cake to melt.

 Sometimes the chocolate "needs" a little help to be spread evenly on the cake.  Half the fun is licking your fingers after you finish!  It does make a delicious topping.

Don't forget that Creative Charms has a chance for you to win a great gift this week.  The prize is a free Kit of the Month and all you have to do is to post on their Facebook Page about how much you like this month's kit and you will be entered.  The deadline is Sunday at midnight Eastern Standard Time.

Be sure to also check out the Creative Charms Blog for some great ideas on how to use the Kit and Deal of the month.

I'll be busy finishing up and taking photos tomorrow.  I have used a lot of different cartridges and some supplies that are a bit unusual, so I hope you will enjoy the things I have made.
