MIM 231: Motif Building

The weather forecast is predicting snow this weekend! SNOW! And not just a little for the greater Chicago area...some reports are guessing we could get 6 to 12 inches. Good thing I got those bulbs planted earlier in the week!

There was something about that little snowflake icon appearing on my phone's weather app that got my holiday planning kicked into high gear. 

I really want to pack the holiday full this year, and I don't know why. Perhaps it's because I am not working retail this Christmas. Or maybe it's because we're in a new house. For whatever reason, I have big plans for this Christmas. Advent celebrations. Cookie baking. Town festivities. Visiting my son in Indiana. Visiting my family in Michigan.

I am making Christmas cards this year, lots and lots of them. Here's a card I made for this week's Make It Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink!

Do you remember the order that got sent to my old address in Pittsburgh? Good news! It got re-routed! And thankfully, it arrived last week. Woo hoo! I finally got to play with this new stamp set and the lovely new color, Vintage Jadeite. There are so many cute elements with this stamp set. And let's face it, I can never have enough coffee cups and tea my cupboards, and in my papercrafting.

Cold is coming! Warmest wishes, cafe friends!
