[white elephant gift exchange cards]

We just had our clinics' Christmas party and did another white elephant gift exchange. This time I made these little cards to make it even more fun. 

If you'd like me to e-mail you the cards as a ready to print Microsoft Word document, just leave a comment with your e-mail address. I won't publish your comment or use your e-mail for anything else except to send you the document. There are 30 cards to print.

[cool, fun, awesome!]

Discovered That Dad Blog today. You must check it out!
Pure awesomeness!

[before and after]



My recipe box was a big mess. All sorts of recipes I never use, recipe cards in variety of colors... 
Decided to give my poor recipe box a makeover. 
This is much better. Me likey.

[do you need a laugh?]

[Halloween chalkboard tags a bonus Thanksgiving tag]

Halloween is my least favorite holiday due to all the evil horror stuff you see everywhere. I like the creative, cute side of Halloween only. I feel bad for the sensitive kids who are scared to death on Halloween (I happen to know one such sensitive girl). It always feels so nice to prepare for Christmas after Halloween is done.
But I'm trying to get into Halloween mood nonetheless. 
I made some tags that you can use for gift bags (I cut them with a 3" circle cutter) or perhaps as cupcake toppers (I'd use a 2" circle cutter)
If you'd like a Microsoft Word document of all these tags, just leave a comment with your e-mail address. I won't post your e-mail address comment.
For personal use only.

We already had our Thanksgiving but I know it's still coming up in the States. Made this bonus Thanksgiving tag just for you.
