Elf on the Shelf Giveaway

I had such great intentions of making up a list of Elf on the Shelf mischief ideas for this year but ran out of steam around #15. Thanks to Sir Google, I've stumbled across some great ideas. See Jane Blog is giving away an awesome Elf package! Head on over and check it out.

Our elf totally needs some glasses.

Freebie Friday

Who doesn't love free stuff? I have a few goodies to kick off my first Freebie Friday. The first is a pack of 12 digital papers. These are great for digital scrapping or for printing. They're all 12x12. Just click on the image to go to the download page.

This next item is actually for sale in my Etsy shop but I've decided to offer it as a freebie if you'd like to edit it yourself. It's available as a Word document so you can alter the text in any way you'd like.

I just love these frames. I have a weird obsession with them. :) So I thought I'd share.

Facebook Fan Giveaway

Time to get the kids and pets into the perfect (good luck!) pose for the yearly holiday card. Maybe you'll decide to send out cards sans photo this year? Whatever you choose, you'll need to get working on that card! Well, I'd like to help by giving away a free custom holiday card design (valued at $25) to one of my Facebook fans. To view the rules, please visit and like my Facebook page! :)

Winner will be announced on 11/23/12. Good luck!

New Etsy Designs

I usually end up with a bunch of custom orders from friends, right before the holidays, so I try to stock my shop with ready-made designs for the general public before the rush starts. I didn't do so well with this last year so this year I tried to get on top of it early. I've also decided to donate 50% of my proceeds this year to Jasmine's House. So buy buy buy! :)

Here are some of this year's new designs.

And a couple new non-holiday designs.

Must Love Dogs

You'll see lots of posts here about holidays, decor, my Etsy shop, food, cocktails, etc etc but there are very few things I'm more passionate about than dogs. I've been an animal lover since I was a child and while that love has continued to grow it has also turned into a deep passion for their welfare. I'm currently owned by two pugs but I've also become very dedicated to pit bulls and I'm proud to call myself an advocate for the breed.
