Hey, all you guys that have procrastinated getting your Christmas cards ordered (like me). =} For some reason, Hubby likes to bug me about it - he is actually better at getting them done than I am. Cannot figure that one out. But, anyway, getting back to Christmas cards...
Shutterfly has a promo going through tomorrow (see, I told you I procrastinate!). If you have a blog, and are willing to do some free advertising for them (see this post??), =) you can get some free cards! Shutterfly has the most awesome cards! They have fresh, comtemporary, and have tons of really nice religious ones.
I have also been working on some Christmas presents on their site. Shh, don't tell them, but certain grandparents who took us to Disney this past year are getting a photobook of our trip (if I get it done in time! ha!). I just bet you have someone who is a bit hard to buy for; think about a photo gift! We've done mugs, mousepads, photo collages, and they are always well received. Don't forget Dad - these make great guy gifts! I know, it's not a tie or tool. He'll thank you.
And, just because I cannot resist, here are just a few of the pictures I am considering for this year's card:

A bow by another name is just as cute, right? Sure hope so, because I decided to split off some styles from their "parent" names, and give them their own rightful place of honor in the column of bow names. So, instead of a "Double Ane Bow," I now have "Hannah" bows:

I just updated my etsy site with a few new listings, and new items across the top. The theme for the time being is "Sugar Plum". Lovin' the purples!!!
"Olivia Bows" in satin and sheer.
Darling little Lily modeling a "Darling" bow - fitting, isn't it? =)
Another cutie modeling for me - this time a sweet little purple poinsettia.
Satin OOAK (one-of-a-kind).
Plum petals on a skinny elastic headband.

For the older crowd - flowers or bows attached to those skinny elastic headbands. Yeah, the ones you moms/grandmas/aunts love to wear. Betcha don't have any like these:
BTW - this is my neice modeling these for me. Isn't she lovely?
Whew! I've been so busy creating Christmas bows and coming up with several new styles, that I haven't had time to share them with you! So prepare yourself for a flood here! I'm very excited about what's been coming out of my craft room, and I'm sure you will be too!
First up - new holiday flowers!
Isn't this a darling model? She's modeling a limited-edition purple poinsettia.
Dogwood bloom clip with large crystal in a lovely teal color.
New additions to the "Pretty Petals" collection - these little beauties are perfect for the holidays with a soft velvety feel. Available in deep red, ivory and plum. Also shown - sparkly white "Ice Princess" petals.
