Fun stuff!

My first Joli Paquet kit arrived today! If you didn't get in on the fun already, I think there are some kits left from these talented ladies. Check it out! I had been so very sad to miss Silver Bella, but this group rocked it out with fun kits full of sparkles, magic and all things glittery.
And, a box full of amazing goodies. From Ebay. I quite literally feel like I hit the jackpot with this lot and will be looking to share a few things, so be on the lookout for my next blog entry which will be my measly 25th entry for a retro, kitschy Christmas giveaway! I was so excited going through this box that I forgot for a moment that the hubby probably wouldn't look at several packages arriving on the same day as a 'good mail day', but rather as a, 'oh boy, what has she gone and done now' kind of event. I was squealing at him to come and look. I completely lost my wits, but wow, good haul.
Also in the giveaway will be some goodies from my vast assortment of Christmas love stash. Can you tell I love Christmas? Does that come across? Because if it didn't, let me tell you, I LOVE CHRISTMAS!
Today while hubby was working on an enormous project from The List, I had a little time to play in the studio. It looks like a craft store blew up in there, but good things are happening. Sometimes they're happening so fast, I seem to be in the midst of 3-4 different projects at once.

Before Christmas completely takes over though, I've got to give Autumn its due. The leaves this year have been absolutely gorgeous beyond compare. Some days have felt like pretty gifts all wrapped up in a cozy sweater with a steaming mug of soup kinds of days. To do: make more soups & stews, read more novels while curled up under a quilt, jump into a pile of leaves and sit on the porch swing to while the afternoon away....

:( Missed the kits, but I'm so glad you scored! And tell me your secret on e-Bay - I can never score a thing, and I think I don't even know what to search for. I've bought lots of glass, but nothing vintage crafty. I NEED some!
