Hello friends and a Happy Tuesday to you all! Wow, wow, wow! What a fabulous response to the Charity Blog Candy I put up on Friday! Right now we are close to raising $1300 for the Fisher House Foundation! I'm so excited and happy to have such a wonderful response from you all and it just really touches me so much and brought tears to my eyes to see that we have doubled my original goal of $600 for this wonderful charity! If you don't know what I'm speaking of or you want to read about the Charity Blog Candy you can see it under this post or directly right HERE! Thank you, thank you so much to you all who have donated---I appreciate it so very much and I know the recipients at the Fisher House will be super thrilled and thankful as well!
And let's talk about this weather those of on the East Coast are having! Can you say double blech, LOL? Snow flurries here in VA and winds of 45 mph--feels like 12 degrees here--not good! My muscles hurt so bad and I'm moving very slooooooooow this week! But I did finish all my decorations for the house inside and outside---I just need to put some greenery on the mantels and bookshelves and then I'll take pictures to share with you all! Probably on Friday so stay tuned, hee hee! We did go and "hunt" our trees at our farm on Saturday which is always fun and I was so thrilled that we found our perfect family room tree within 10 mins, lol--the second tree took another 20 mins to find but then we were good to go. The family room tree is our biggest tree we've ever had--almost 13 feet tall, my ladder was almost not tall enough, LOL! So I've got a few fun pictures to share with you below of some of our preparations!

These fabulously fun holiday papers are from last year's My Mind's Eye Collection (Colorful Christmas)---I adore them so much that I had to use them again! The sentiment is from PTI and I added some rhinestones to the berries in the center (I also shaded parts of the circle with light colored Copics). The holly cut-outs are from a jumbo MS punch (love it) and then I added some stickles for sparkle. The pom-pom accent ribbon I got at a store I taught at in Greensboro--it's by Prima--lovin' it!
I colored this cutie up with Copics (RV17,RV14,RV13,RV10/BG15,BG11,BG10) and added some stardust stickles to the white parts of her tights and her white shirt for lots of holiday bling! The fur trim on her hat got white Sparkly Fluff added to it---I can't say enough about that stuff, it is so much fun to use!
Hope you enjoyed the project today and it brought a small smile to your face! Make sure to stop by the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to see all the DT projects and to join in the fun! What better way to get rid of some of the holiday stress then by crafting!! See you tomorrow!
