Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy Chinese New Year!
I was depending on Hallmark for my Chinese New Year cards, but unfortunately, I waited too long and they were sold out. So, I was forced to use my craft supplies, lol. I bought the Firecrackers stamp from Hanko Designs in December when Sister Stamps announced their closing. So a big shout out to Hanko for letting its customers know about the sad news. Unfortunately, the Firecrackers stamp is sold out, but it looks like the Lion Dance stamp is still available.

The reality is, I would have hoarded this stamp for years, had not Hallmark forced my hand. I enjoyed the stamp so much, I had to place another order before all of the Sister Stamps are sold out. If you're interested in any, I suggest you order now since I noticed a few more stamps were sold out since I ordered.

I hope the Year of the Monkey brings you prosperity and good fortune!

Pretty packages

My boss snuck this beautiful box and a Starbucks gift card onto my desk before the holidays. As it turns out, he gave a gift to all of his leads. It was the first time he'd done that and we were all pleasantly surprised. If you know me, you know that I was quite taken with the beautiful box and ribbon. As it turned out, the box contained some of my favorite kind of cookies: shortbread, with the added bonus of them containing macadamia nuts (another favorite) and dipped in chocolate (yet another favorite). Of course, I'm going to save the box when the cookies are all gone.

I received another surprise, this time from a scrapbook buddy. She sent me this beautiful Japanese box, just because. Another unexpected gift that touched me.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

My little owl friend found a home among all my Christmas decorations at work.

And the secret Santas at work used his mailbox as a delivery system so he got lots of visitors, tee hee!

Owl be home for Christmas

AKA, I couldn't resist this cutie from Target. How much could I not resist? I even paid full price (only $5)! He'll be going to the office with me on Monday.

And yes, I am doing a bit of crafting. It feels good to play with paper again.

Day 53/100

At last count (so long ago!) I was ahead, but now I've fallen way behind. Here's what has left the house since the last update.

Sold the following through a FB selling group:
4 baggies of eyelets
3 embossing folders
1 adhesive pack
1 washi tape
3 packs of embellishments
1 8x8 paper pad

5 6x6 paper pads (yay!)
1 tote bag
1 stamp

Gave away:
1 skirt (so happy with this one, my coworker LOVED it)
3 magazines
2 bags of candy (donated to the office candy bowl)

So that's 21 more items gone for a total of 34. Got some catching up to do, sigh.
