Lucky me--I was able to meet up in person with two gals that I met on the internet, and have been fortunate enough to get to know, in real life and on line. Cathy, Marybeth, and I now have a Christmas tradition to get together in Irvine for coffee right before Christmas break--but while my girls are still in school. Yay--I have a Christmas tradition, finally.
We sat and drank coffee and talked and laughed all morning. What a great time we had. Cathy was brave enough to ask a very scary looking, but actually quite nice, young man (tattoo guy) to take our picture, so we could tell all our bloggy fans what we were up to.
If there are paper crafters involved, then you know that there will be cool gifts. Cathy made this awesome candy bar holder--I think I need to get that template from her. Isn't that adorable, and she also told me her bow tying secrets.
If you are wondering what this is, it is a gift from Marybeth, and it is the worlds largest roll of foam tape. Isn't that a riot. I think it will take me from now until next December to use it up. I will certainly try.
And, lastly, something crafty from me--here are the rest of my holiday tags for the year.
These tags were made with PTI Holiday Lights stamps, and I added Glossy Accents to the light bulbs. They are pretty much exactly the same as some tags I made last year.
These tags are made with the cutest Washi tape from Michaels. I was inspired by Tracey's tags here, and I used sentiments from Peace, Love & Joy and Happiest of Holidays, both from PTI
These tags use Winter Snow Globe from PTI.
These tags use images from 2012 Holiday Tags and a sentiment from Holiday Lights.
And, finally, a tag for my daughters' bus driver, using snowflakes from one of the many sets that were lying around, and PTI Boy Basics Truckin It.
