                                               Image result for christmas stocking images
I love this time of year and making wonderful memories with my family and friends. But, sometimes it gets hard to not become overwhelmed with all I have to do and all I want to do, etc...  so I am sure to schedule lots of  "down time" during December where I share my passion for paper crafting with everyone.  It helps me to appreciate and enjoy wonderful company of many, many friends, and I hope you will be one of them.

Yesterday I spent some time shopping for stocking stuffers and some unique gifts for those on my list.  This marks the "official" start of the season for me.  That means it is time to start enjoying all those things I love so much during this season  I am very glad I have scheduled time Wednesday (during Wine Down Wednesday) to enjoy time in the Rubber Room with friends while I address my cards. I love getting cards, especially during the holidays, and I love putting my cards in the mail knowing everyone will love them when they arrive. 

Whether you are making your cards, signing your cards and/or addressing them, I would love to share that time with you, and it is my hope you will join my in the Rubber Room for Wine Down Wednesday this week.

PLEASE JOIN ME FOR HOLIDAY FUN!

December in the Rubber Room looks like this:
The busy holiday season is about to start, and that means, I need to have "relaxing, me time" in place so that I can enjoy the season too. I used to get all caught up in "getting it all done" and then I would try to become super woman and make it all happen perfectly for everyone. It did not take long for me to start dreading the holidays. But, no more.

Now, I just want to enjoy the season and all the amazingness it brings. I make gifts for those who are special to me, personalize each Christmas card I send, and most importantly, take time to be with friends and share what I love the most: friendships, family, crafting, and sharing time spent together.

I hope you can make time to share with me this holiday season and look forward to seeing you in the Rubber Room soon.

Here are full descriptions for classes and events.
