I love this time of year as my mailbox is treated with so many sweet creations that makes that bitter tax bill/pill a little easier to swallow!  I'll share just two of them this morning as it's another full day.  I'm hoping to start that diet/workout regiment this morning…driveway has to be shoveled.  :)  You didn't really think that I'd be exercizing for real, did you?  Oh I wished I liked that kind of stuff!

Here's the first card sent by a dear customer of mine, Donna R.  Don't you just love how she's made the ornament 3-D.  Perhaps I can add a little video tutorial tonight when the kids get home to show you how she's done this…..It's a fabulous technique.  Don't hold your breath waiting for it, as the Teacher Gift's have to be started too.  :)  But we'll try…

Seriously, this card is amazing in person.  I just am a photography zero and I purpose here and now that as soon as Ella is signed up for Kindergarten, I'm taking a class.  Again, don't hold your breath, she's only turning four this week.

So off to rouse kids for school and don some boots, hat and mittens and brave the "e-word".  Hmmm, did you realize that Elements and Exercize both start with "E"?
