I ordered 2 surprise boxes from TAC, along with some stamps (of course) for my Christmas present to myself. Here's a picture of all that I got! I can't wait to start playing with it all.


I couldn't fit all of what I got into the picture - this is just a part of one box.


Here's a project that I worked on last week. It is wood letters that I got and decorated (I like the ones from Walmart best because of their size and flatness).
For those of you that haven't done these, they are so easy and look so neat. I made some for my daughter's room that spells out her name. For Christmas I'm making some for my nieces and nephew. First you paint the letters, for this project I used a metallic blue and painted two coats. Next you use mod podge and add designer paper. Cut the letters out and sand them down so that there aren't rough edges. Then add embellishments. And voila! Beautiful.







I love Christmas, so hopefully you'll be seeing a lot more Christmas projects these next couple of weeks.

WOW! Santa was good to you! What a great collection of "stuff" to play with. I really like you Santa letters and the SNOW spelled out on the one letter--it is a great touch.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of the neat things you create and share on your blog.

Looks like some great stuff in the TAC boxes.

Nice project too. I keep meaning to make some for my girls - (the twins share a room - so a name over each bed). Just need to find the time LOL!

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.

Way to go, Santa! Don't you love working with the letters? I'm making a series of "J"s for my sister (Jennifer). The first one I gave her for her b-day in June. I have 2-3 to make for part of her xmas gift - guess I better get cracking! Great job! I'm going to have to look into TAC.

Hello blog sister! Holy cow that a whole lot of goodies! Looks like you'll be having fun playing with your new stuff.

Your Santa letters look wonderful. I recently made a project like that and I made one that spelled "ZEN". I like your idea of making a Christmas one!

Great job!
