seeing stars

Hello friends and hello friday,

Yesterday I got a surprise in the mail from Angie as part of her PIF. I will share that with you hopefully tomorrow. I also have another surprise from Renee to share with you too. And did you see what Anna sent as part of a fall swap? She and I were partners and she sent me these lovely handmade goodies. Thank you Angie, Renee, and Anna! Each of you are creative, talented and kind. I feel so fortunate and happy to have met these ladies and all of you through blogging. {And those of you who signed up for my PIF, I'm getting very close to finishing; I'm trying to get them all done to send off at once.}

Last night I baked some gingerbread cookies, that actually look like wagonwheels. The preschool is having it's famous annual cookie sale which coincides with the Lawrence Arts Center Holiday Shop. The cookie sale raises money for the preschool program and is like the candyland of cookies! {I'll take a picture and send you some.} The holiday shop allows kids to shop for their families for just a few dollars. They have a personal shopper elf with them to help them choose gifts. It's so much fun for them.

I did do some printing with the iridescent ink {like it!} and hope to show you the cards soon. Printing stars, printing stars...

Have a glistening weekend,
