I just love snowmen...

Hello blogland!  A few weeks ago I told you about helping my daughter with a big fundraiser for the Leukemis & Lymphoma Society via Team in Training, and we've been whipping up some Snowman Soup Packages and Reindeer Poop.

These have been flying out the door as fast as we can make them, so THANK YOU to everyone who has purchased them.  Take a look at what we came up with today........

They're giant 4.4 oz Hershey Chocolate bars in this adorable wrapper courtesy of Laurie Furnell, then topped off with a warm fuzzy pair of stretchy gloves.  Do you love them - I can't stop making them! So not only do you feed your sweet tooth, you get a warm pair of gloves AND make a donation to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  I know you're all thinking "I can do that", but in case you can't or don't have time and think this is a great way to support a great cause, please check them out in my Etsy store HERE.  Thank you! 

Ok, now I've REALLY got to get back to my Christmas cards!  I got a lovely box of new stamps from StampersBest that are just screaming for me to play with them, so I'll be back tomorrow to show you what I made with them :)

Up to my eyeballs in Snowman Soup and Reindeer Poop

Hello blogland!  This past week my daughter and I have been as busy as little elves making Snowman Soup kits and packages of Reindeer Poop for a holiday fair next weekend.  Wanna see?
The Snowman Soup kit is a packet of Swiss Miss hot cocoa and a baggie of mini marshmallows.  Isn't he adorable?

And this little baggie of Reindeer Poop is really chocolate covered raisins.  What were you thinking it was?  We made a ton of these and all are available in my Etsy shop HERE.  100% of the sale of these items are being donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society via Team in Training, which is a huge fundraiser my daughter is doing.  Need a little something for a teacher gift or for the mailman and UPS guy, or for a Christmas cookie exchange? Please consider giving them one of these :)

Clean and Simple Holiday Cards

Hello blogland!  Like everyone else, I'm wondering how it got to be November already!  And like everyone else, I've been working on holiday cards and having a ball! First, I needed a nice clean and simple design to use for some card sets for a fundraiser for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society that my daughter is doing.  I headed right to some of the new holiday designs from StampersBest and have had a ball using them.

And here's one using one of my favorite Unity Stamps:
