Everybodys working for the weekend.....

Yep, that song is blasting on my iPod right now. That poor thing has really gotten a workout this week! Between working on projects for the gallery, working on the shop hop and filling orders, I've listened to all 800 soings 3 times now. And that includes my Christmas songs.

Yes, I listened to Christmas music BEFORE Thanksgiving. Don't tell my grandmother. We made a pact when I was a kid that I had to wait until after Thanksgiving to listen. Of course, this was when my favorite album was Christmas With The Chipmunks. She said I played it over and over and over again causing some adults to really hate Alvin, Simon and Theodore.

So, while I'm all alone during the day, I crank it up and listen to whatever I want.

Whats got me all in the Christmas mood? All of the fantastic holiday lines we have right now - and all of the lines that still haven't shipped!

Tuesday, it felt like Christmas morning when the new Crate Paper arrived. All 3 lines - yummy!
Here are some pictures of our favorite products and some from their booth at CHA. The lovely Christine Middlecamp designed a lot of the layouts for them. I love her work! I had dinner with her and a friend in Chicago. She is an amazing woman and I'm looking forward to taking 2 classes with her next month.

And in the last post, I said the lines could be mixed and matched because the colors worked so well together. I threw a quick layout together yesterday using papers from the Lemon Grass and Prudence lines.

I uploaded a few more ideas to my gallery yesterday. You know who else has some really cool ideas in their gallery? Carrie! Check out the cute work she's done. We'll post more gallery ideas tomorrow to keep your creative juices flowing.

I haven't been able to shop for a long time, as I was laid off from my job after 8 years! :-( With that said, I am sooooo super-ready to shop! I will be on your site tomorrow; it's 1:21 am and I need to get myself to sleep!

Thanks for having all of the new and AWESOME products in your store. I love everything. I soooooooo love the Crate Paper lines! Beautiful!
