exciting news!


The snow people that my cousin, Terry, and I created last month are getting their day of fame. Our little snow families are featured in Cloth Paper Scissors e-newsletter today. How wonderful. Thanks so much to CPS for finding our snow people and sharing them with everyone. You made my day. My snow people are so happy up on the mantle sharing space with the rest of the snowman collection.

A big happy welcome if you are stopping by today from Scrapbook News and Review celebration. In honor of my exciting news today I'm doing a little RAK. I'll randomly choose one winner from everyone who leaves a comment here to recieve the next issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. It's my favorite magazine, and I'd love to share one with you.

If you have a need to pay forward a kindness this season, here are a couple of my cardmaking friends that are doing good deeds for others. My friend, Lesa, is a breast cancer survivor who started Little Life Preservers to help bring cheer to other women facing a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. My friend, Sandy, started a wonderful group called Cards for Heroes which provides handmade cards to troops to send home to their families. I'm proud to be able to help these friends with their efforts when I can. Both of these groups always have need for handmade cards, envelopes, and postage. Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Hi Tami,
Your blog is so much fun! I love your crafting "ethic" (if you don't have what the tutorial says, improvise, don't stress), and your work is so pretty!
Your TV story made me laugh, and your lost boy made me so thankful that there are still caring people in the world like you and your family.
Karen.

OMG...I stumbled upon your blog through SN&R and have to tell you that your adorable snowmen are the reason I bought CPS last month! What a coincidence...I fell in love with them and all their vintage, glitter glass goodness! I laughed when I figured out the hat on one is a piping tip from Wilton LOL! How incredible is this? By the way, I love Tim too and look every morning before work to see the new tags, congrats on your winning the goodies!
