Tim's 12 Tags...

I am very much looking forward to this event starting next week...

Despite a serious personal setback of having all of his personal and creative items jacked out of his car about 10 days ago, Tim is going forward with doing his annual, and much anticipated 12 tags of Christmas.

I just put an order in for 1000 #8 tags.

What...? It was the minimum ok? If you are looking to do some of these tags I will have them for sale next week in the store at $1.95/dozen. I will also be trying to do a tag per day, or to get 12 tags done in the 12 days he is doing them as well.

In fact I am going to do one better...I have a challenge for you all out there.

If I don't make 12 tags (they aren't necessarily going to be exactly like Tim's but I will try out his techniques) but you do, I will give you a Tim Holtz-ish prize. I will post my tags here on my blog as I make them between the dates of Dec 1 and Dec 12. May not be one per day, but will try.

If I fail in my personal challenge, but you succeed, that deserves a reward in my book! More details to come in the next few days!

I am so excited!

Have a great day!


PS I am also opening this challange up to Scrapbox Employees! The game starts in 4 days!

Both the Canadian Scrapbooker Winter Edition 09 and Canadian Scrapbooker Basics Volume 5 landed with a resounding THUMP on my doorstep 10 mins ago! The article for The Scrapbox is on page 132 (I think) and it looks awesome!!!!!

If you have asked for it to be set aside for you, we have done so. If not, hustle your bustle down and get your own copy before they fly out the door!

OH so excited!

Back safely from TO!

Had an awesome weekend. Visited with my cousins and ate super gourmet food. Felt like I was a judge at the Iron Chef. My cousin loved the handmade box that I bought from L. and the kids loved the chocolates that I filled the box with. The day went by way too fast and the kids had fun with the gingerbread houses and the basement that was a complete children haven.

Before I knew it I was back home and I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed.

Looking forward to this week! Lots of things happening!

Tomorrow I announce who won the Basic Grey Paper Pack as was mentioned in last week's newsletter.

The day after that I receive a brand new line of product and paper to The Scrapbox...want to know what it is? Stay tuned my lovelies...

The day after THAT I should have in stock 100 copies of The Canadian Scrapbooker that will be showcasing The Scrapbox as it's featured Local Scrapbooking Store.

This all happens before I open the doors of the store for the week =) You won't want to miss a thing!

off to bed. Have an awesome week.

Off to TO for the weekend... an unprecedented, but highly anticipated event, I will be taking my little family to Toronto this weekend for a very early Christmas gathering of my 'side' of the family.

I'd heard about this trend of families getting together a month ahead of the actual date to celebrate Christmas and I was one of those who scoffed at the concept - at first. I was young - forgive me. I didn't realize just how busy Christmas could get and how much less I would enjoy it because the people I wanted to see most were either sick, stressed out, working, on call or just plain frazzled due to the 'happiest time of the year'. And I usually had to travel 4 hours (or more) in the worst of winter weather just to see the closest of my relatives - don't get me started about what happened last Christmas en route to my mother's. I'd need a bottle of wine just to get started.

However this year my cousin - how I love her - invited 'the family' to her place this year, in the lovely Beaches area of East Toronto and if the weather network is to be believed, the weather will be a nice, sunny 9 degrees.

It's going to be a lovely day all the way around, with all the little great neices and nephews in attendance (all 5 of my Nana's Great-grandchildren being together happens all too rarely. I'm putting a prayer in now that we can get a good pic of them in one spot, and maybe smiling?). In fact every single member of our little clan has all agreed to come and that in and of itself is a Christmas Wish come true. I'll be able to spend time with my cousins, who are awesome, talented, smart and beautiful and I am blessed that they love me and I get to love them. My mothers siblings and their best friends will be there too...looking on as my generation deal with the children and loving not have to be 'the heavy'. Being grandparents sit very easily on their shoulders.

Where do I sign up for this Christmas? I'll take two please.

The only question that remains is this...should I tell my cousin that I bought 3 gingerbread kits today and that I plan to bring them up to her place so all 5 kids can get super charged on icing and gum drops? Or should I leave it a big suprise...

Oh she'll love it. Maybe I'll wrap them in a Scrapbox Apron.

Have a great week.
