"What You Make It" Sneak Peek

Well -- we are set for taping our first six show on Friday, November 9th. The house is a flurry of Thanksgiving and Christmas projects...and I am having so much fun. If you have been around me at Christmas time -- you KNOW that it is my favorite time of the year. Getting ready for "What You Make It" has given me an excuse to break out the Christmas CD's and sing It's beginning to look a lot like Christ-------mas!" at the top of my lungs. I have turned the AC down (because the weather is not cooperating with my Christmas fantasy just yet....and have put on a snuggly sweater! I think I may even pull out a little Christmas tree and some white lights just to keep the mood going! Don't think I won't! *smile*

Thought I would share a few of the projects that are in process. In a few days you will be able to order kits for some of these projects in my Etsy shop. Here are the kits that will be available.

1. Mini-book Kit with Jenni Bowlin's new brown paper line

2. Christmas Matchbook mini book (you get enough to make three gift books -- good for putting a quick give together for grandmom for Christmas)

3. A Christmas Findings Box -- A goodie box filled with vintage and other Christmas oriented goodies that you can use on Christmas cards or Holiday Layouts.

4. An Advent Calendar Kit....this one is really special. I will post a picture of it tomorrow...but you will want to check this out. It uses vintage sheet music and specially designed number magnets to help you and your family count down the days until Christmas. With the kit you can quickly get your kit ready before December. I will be happy to take pre-orders as we only have a liminited number of kits -- and as my friends, I want you to have the first opportunity to get them. The cost is $34.40 and you will have more than enough "stuff" to complete this project and probably a bunch of Christmas cards too. Just leave me a comment if you are interested in pre-ordering prior to be putting the kit up on ETSY.

And finally, these are some Christmas ATC cards that I created for an ATC swap. Enjoy....and even though I am working WAY ahead of the holiday schedule -- I really hope that you and your family are set to enjoy Halloween/Fall Festival and Thanksgiving before you move on to Christmas.

Happy weekend everyone.


  1. I am loving your projects. And.....really I can not believe how much fun you are having. It is simply not fair. I wanna play too. :)

    I am happy you are having a blast. And, can not wait to see all of the awesome goodies you create. I have to crop this weekend. I have my challenge page to chat with ya later.

    Love and HUGS>>>>>

  2. I am so in the Christmas spirit too! I gave Page the Grinch movie tonight and we watched it. (The Jim Carrey one)

    Big Lots has mini pre-lit trees for $18. They were shamefully fake, but festive none the less.
    Don't buy all the pink ones, I must go back for Page!

    Good luck with the taping. Did I miss something?
