Exciting News & Home made

Before I get on with my post for today I need to share some exciting news!! Several Months ago I was visiting Mara's blog and she posted how she just received her Twinery Sampler pack. I love Twine so I decided to order the pack myself... Thanks Mara. A few weeks back I applied to be on the first ever DT for The Twinery and guess what I made it !! Yayyyy I am so excited to be working with The Twinery and 22  woman with all different types of talent.... So stay tuned for my debut projects!!

On to my project for today!!



 Even though it is cold I am glad the weekend is here. It is suppose to be -33 with the windchill tomorrow!! Yikes. It is no wonder people get sick.. how it can go from +3 to -33 in a matter of 5 days is just crazy!! I am hoping to light a fire this afternoon and work on my blanket but for now I wanted to post this project that I made for my mom.. She has made some Pepper jelly and was going to give it care packages for Christmas but wanted some tags so people knew what to do with it.. So I pulled out my nesties and some PTI stamps, Twine, Templates, and got started. I have decorated my tags with this fabulous twine that I just Love!! I felt kinda guilty just giving them to her so I took my freebie template from MTME called Custsy cover..Get yours here and made this sweet box for her too :) I know I am such a nice daughter !! Just joking lol... Well that is it for me I am heading out to split some wood..Joking again I will get my hubby to do it !! Have a great weekend everybody!! Monique
