Coming up for air!

Happy Holidays!  I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas, and some quality time with friends and family.  I didn't really intend to take things so slowly blog-wise over the last few weeks, but as with all of us, family and holiday commitments come first, and a computer in the shop for several weeks made the break happen whether I wanted it to or not!  I am excited to get back to crafting, trying out new things, and even getting going on next year's Christmas cards!  I still have all of my product sitting out in my craft room, and I intend to keep it going while I'm still in festive mode.  We have some wonderful colour stories coming up at Dynamic Duos... and of course the Close To My Heart spring 2013 catalogues should be in my hands shortly, so there are lots of fun things ahead.  If you like a good Boxing Day deal... surf the stamp and paper companies today - I've just placed a lovely Verve order, and may look at a few other products as well.  For now I have a couple of things to share... this was a Pinterest idea that I gave out to several friends, wonderful jars of a homemade hot chocolate mix.  They were very cute, and well received:
And here is another reason for my slow December blogging - my daughter, the Cupcake Diva had 3 fairly large orders this month (and I am her lovely assistant!) so we made over 350 mini cupcakes, and 3 dozen regular sized ones.  Needless to say, we're not looking to bake any more cupcakes in the near future.  Here is a chocolate fudge cupcake with a white chocolate buttercream icing done for a holiday baby shower:
Stay tuned for some serious papercrafting, I can hardly wait to get back into my room!
