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.

Wine Down Wednesday
Wednesday, December 5, 2018 from 7-9 p.m.
