(Read till the end of the post to find out about a fun giveaway and a special offering on the site in limited quantities)!

And fun was had by all. . .

Vintagefest was a blast, as shown here above by my wonderful crew.


The party at our home Friday night was something we had not done in the past but really enjoyed. Melissa made some great food and we completed a sweet silver star ornament (which of course I forgot to take a photo of) to top the night off. Below is a photo of the group (a bit blurry, but at least I took one)!


Notice Noah's red knees - he cleaned up the spraying mat after each set of girls sprayed their aprons (using my new Ranger reinkers mixed with water). . .


I think this is Louise - busy creating her 12 Days of Christmas collage. . .



Cheryl and Traci busy creating (look Tim - we got our fingers dirty)!. . .


Terena - queen of the checkout. . .


and some offerings found in the store on Saturday. . .










This was truly a great group of women and we all enjoyed getting to know them.

From beginning to end we had a wonderful time and are already looking forward to the next event (look for more information early next year)!

I decided to offer just a few of the 12 Days of Christmas Panel Class Kits on the site. They are up now under Limited Edition Kits in the Monthly Kit Section. At this moment, only blog readers know about it! If you have ordered something else since the first of the month and want to add this to your order, just place the order and we will refund you for the extra shipping. These will ship on the 8th with everything else from the first.
We also added some Donna Downey blank aprons and restocked the Tiny Vintage Leather Books in Green.


And. . .leave a post here between now and tomorrow at 8:00pm central and I will randomly choose one winner to send one of these kits!

Check back tomorrow for some photos of my recent Christmas decorating!!

Pin It!

Jenni (and Jared) as always, Steven and I enjoy visiting with you each year at Vintagefest.
The beautiful old Bible I bought has found a very special place amongst our Christmas decorations but I am really considering leaving it prominently displayed all year.
Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas season!
