Two Weeks Before Christmas

T'was two weeks before Christmas at this little rubber stamp store. The stampers were flocking in for their materials to make cards all wanting to know just what Tim Holtz is talking about on his Twelve Tags of Christmas and how do you use his new die cut machine?

"Let me show you" I say, pulling out ink pads and stamps. Now where is the paper?
"But how did you do the metal?" the frantic card makers ask.

I pull out the new Vagabond by Sizzix and show them how to use pewter with their Dream Weaver Stencils. Their eyes fill with wonder at the glory of it all.

By the time 5 o'clock rolls around the last crafter staggers out the door and I sit for the first time that day.

Yikes! I realize I haven't done my Dream Weaver Stencil card this week. Panic strikes, but our fearless leader Lynell has thought ahead of me and posted an excellent choice on her blog this week.

Thank you all, thank you so much!


  1. Lee, I know the feeling! It is a crazy time of year, wonderful, but crazy.

  2.'s a good thing you are Crazy too...hahaha! Or is it the store and schedule that make you crazy...hmmm which comes first the chicken or the egg. Hang in there, we all understand and three others on the team have been store owners so lots of sympathy going your way. We won't expect anything until you surface sometime in Jan. LOl.
