Christmas Card Batch in a Flash & Giveaway!

Hi Friends! Every year I make a lot of Christmas cards and I have to organize my supplies or the cards will never get done. This year I used divided bento style containers from EasyLunchboxes to organize my supplies for assembly line card crafting.


I like my Christmas card stuff to be portable so I can craft with the family upstairs or take my supplies with me to a crop and these boxes and tote are perfect for that. See what I mean in today’s video AND learn how to make this cute (and quick) card:

Do you want your very own set of 4 lunch boxes and cooler bag? Well, of course you can buy them directly from EasyLunchboxes they even offer free and reduced shipping though their Amazon store (they are the #1 best-selling lunchbox on Amazon BTW) for US and Canadian residents OR you can win them! To win you need to have a peek here in their shop, then come back here and leave a comment telling me something you like about their products.

That’s it, pretty easy huh? I will select a winner at random December 12th. This giveaway is open to US residents.


I want to thank EasyLunchboxes for sponsoring this giveaway. Their products are sturdy, durable and BPA free so you can feel good about storing your food in them too!  They would also make a nice Christmas gift! I want to thank you for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

String Storage Solution! {video tutorial}

Happy Black Friday everyone! I did not go out into the madness but I cheered on all of my girlfriends who kept me updated on facebook…vicarious Black Friday shopping is probably more my pace anyway. I do intend to check out some Cyber-Monday deals if my kids ever tell me what they want for Christmas LOL! Today I have a storage tutorial for you. I have made a  storage bag for the luscious newbaker’s twine I got from Papermart but this would also be great to get all of your holiday wrapping ribbons and string in order too!

Here is the video:

You can use this method to store any ribbon, yarn, string or fibers. Just punch more holes as needed! Be sure to save the bags that bath sets (we always seem to get some of these as Christmas gifts don’t we?) curtains and blankets come is because the plastic is thick and the zippers are sturdy and best of all the bags are clear so you can see your ribbons and trims! Speaking of ribbon, string and trims be sure to check out the wonderful selection at Papermart. I have realized that if they sell it it will be the cheapest place to get it. Sometimes the quantities are large but you can always split it with your stamping friends, I do that a lot!

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
