I have very inky hands and there are bits and pieces of my weekend project everywhere! I've been putting together a wreath for the Family Trees exhibit at our local Concord Museum. Every year dozens of trees (and a few wreaths) are decorated with a children's book as the inspiration.
My book this year is the poem Wynken, Blynken and Nod. I'll be able to show you photos of the finished wreath once it is hanging in the museum. My hands may be permanently blue from the spray dye I used for the ocean. The photo at the top of this post shows one of the "fishing nets" from the story.
Here are some of the shimmery fish that will be in the nets...
Black Friday is starting earlier and earlier and there are lots of deals to be had already. Creative Memories is offering a "Stuff Your Stockings" sale. If you have been thinking about getting one or more of the Creative Memories exclusive Cricut cartridges, or some other scrapbooking supplies, you can qualify for free gifts at certain levels of spending (you may want to get together with a friend or two to maximize your benefit and split up the goodies).
Here are the details...
Spend $75 Get $25 in free gifts
• Exclusive Happy Holidays 6x6 Cardstock (40/pk)
• Holidazzle Epoxy Stickers
• Snowman Mini Pocket Punch
Spend $225 Get an extra $70.50 in free gifts
• Expressions of Christmas Vellum Accents
• Gingerbread Border Maker Cartridge
• Snowflake Mini Pocket Punch
• Blossom Place ’n’ Punch
• Noel Epoxy Stickers
• Paper Edger
At the $225 level you get both sets of gifts.
If you order by Wednesday and spend $75, you will get an extra pack of 40 sheets of 6 x 6 inch cardstock in harvest colors.
There are also savings on gift items and cards in the Digital Center but these are not included in the Stuff your Stockings offer.
You can get all of the details on my Creative Memories personal website HERE. If you place an order, be sure to click "ADD" at the bottom of the order to put the free gifts in your cart on the checkout page.
The Holiday Frames & Tags cartridge is a Limited Edition and is only available until the end of the year (unless they sell out sooner). The 'Tis the Season cartridge is listed as While Supplies Last - I don't know how many they have left but if you were thinking about either of these cartridges it would be good time to order and get some extras (if you buy two or more cartridges or add a few supplies to your order).
Here is the fine print...
Offer valid 12:01 a.m. (CT), Nov. 19, through 10:00 p.m. (CT), Nov. 26, 2012. Offer not valid on Creative Memories Digital Center or Persona Imprinting orders.

Offer valid in the United States and Canada and is subject to change without notice. Substitutions may apply.
Please note: non-shippable products like Rewards Club memberships, digital product credits and digital artwork purchases do not count toward the $75 and $225 thresholds.
I hope you have a great Monday! I have one "technical difficulty" with my wreath that I need to solve today - wish me luck!
