Two New Books for This Teacher

What a wonderful Christmas we had today. The kids are extremely happy with their gifts, the hubby got just what he wanted, and me...I love everything I received. My husband went overboard and got me all the crafting goodies I could have asked for.  : ) I got some new Cricut cartridges (Nifty Fifties, Birthday Bash, and Wrap-it Up), a bunch of embossing folders, buttons, crafting thread, and paper with matching embellishments.  

I also received two new crafting books (one I picked out and the other was a surprise). I was reading them this evening and I thought I would share a piece from  The Cardmaker's Workbook p.19. 

An interesting tidbit I want to remember as the new year approaches...

Top 15 People to Send Cards To...
1. Your parents
2. Your children
3. Your wealthy spinster aunt and her seven cats
4.Your best friend
5. Your nieces and nephews in college
6. Your future in-laws
7. Your grandparents
8. Your grandchildren
9. Your paperboy
10. Your babysitter
11. Your neighbor's gorgeous pool boy
12. Your favorite barista
13. Your priest, rabbi, or spiritual mentor
14. Ben & Jerry's
15. There wasn't one! I think it was an error in printing. My thought...anyone else you want!

My goal for the new year is to send handmade cards to more family, friends, and co-workers. I definitely do not have a wealthy spinster aunt with seven cats, but I sure can use this list for many others. I am hoping to share my love of cardmaking with others.

Be sure to come back again for another tidbit from one of these books. There is so much useful information I just have to share...It is that teacher in me!

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

  1. So glad you had a great Christmas and got so many goodies! Can't wait to see what you'll create with all of them!

  2. It is always fun to receive crafting goodies. Looking forward to seeing your creations!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

  3. What wonderful goodies you got! I think my fav on the list it the gorgeous pool boy! LOL There's not a pool anywhere close to me!! Funny! Can't wait to see what you create!! :)

  4. Oooo, I love your list of cards to send.
    My favorite is your best friends.

  5. For my 2010 resolution, I made it my goal to send handmade birthday cards to friends and family. I sent cards to all my aunts and uncles (and my husband's aunts and uncles) all the cousins on both sides of my family, nieces and nephews too. All this in addition to parents, grandparents and siblings on both sides of the family.

    It was a lot of work, but well worth it! :)

  6. Glad you had a wonderful Christmas and got some lovely goodies. These books sound like great assets, can't wait to see what next you enhance us with.
