I currently have an obsession with Pinwheels. You can see them in my March kit as well as in some of my projects I will be featuring over the next month.   When I saw the Gimme Some Sugar papers, the patterns reminded me of a quilt my grandmother made, so I decided to try to create a “Quilted” Pinwheel and I am really delighted with how it turned out.

December is Delightful

This time of year becomes busy for most of us.  We spend our days counting down until Christmas, reviewing all of our lists, and filling up our calendars, yet, we forget to take a time to relax.  This year, I encourage you to make December delightful by taking time to rest and create.  Start by making an amazing gift with the Through the Year Calendar Kit.

1712-cc-fb-cover

The Through the Year Calendar kit includes all of the supplies needed to create a beautiful calendar that you can use for yourself or give as a gift.  I love that this is a 12″ calendar because when the year is over, I plan on disassembling it and creating a delightful scrapbook full of the year’s memories.  On December 16th, I am offering a FREE Calendar workshop where you can come, spend some creative time with friends, and make this calendar.

I have two other workshops where you can come and enjoy some creative fun.  Learn Cricut® Design Space as you create a Wintry Scrapbook or create a sophisticated Family Layout and three Thank You cards.  Bring a friend to either workshop and receive a FREE Petite Perks Stamp set.

Don’t have time to come any of the December Workshops? You can still order the kits and sneak away for a little creative time to make any of the cards, scrapbook pages, or home decor projects that I have available in my online store. Make December even more delightful by giving yourself  an early Christmas gift of my Kit of the Month club. Treat yourself to a ready-to-assemble Scrapbook layout kit each month.

Not only can December be delightful, but Close to My Heart has made it “punny” with our A Little Bit of Pun stamp of the month.  Visit the “Promotions” tab on my website to learn how you can get this set for only $5.00. I will be posting ideas through the month using this stamp set, so make sure to “Follow” my blog, sign-up for emails, or visit often.

I hope that you take a little time to make December more delightful as you make something new.  I can’t wait to see what you create!
