One Week Until Christmas!

Hi everyone! It's Thursday and the week is almost over...YAAAAY! It's only one week until Christmas! I'm sorry I do not have any projects to share with you today, only some great news! Last night, I received an e-mail from one of the Paper Crafts editors that they selected 7 cards to be published in next year's Card Creations 7 magazine! I was so excited! There will actually only be 6 cards published because one of the cards was picked up by another magazine already. This is a great Christmas gift in itself. I'm truly blessed of how my 'hobby' has turned into something much more.

You can purchase this year's Card Creations 6 magazine (pictured above) here. They feature cards for any and all occasions, so it's a must-have in your magazine collection! Card Creations 7 magazine goes on sale June 23, 2009, but I'll be sure to remind you next year!

I'm not planning on many posts through next week because it's the holidays and I think we should spend our time with our family and friends, instead of glued to the computer as I always am! However, the real reason why is because I'm going to try to create more Christmas gifts over the next few days and I'm running out of time! I might peek in next week here or there with a picture or a brief card, but don't hold me to it! I hope I can get some things done. I have one problem though, my printer broke - one day after I finished those over 200 cards! I'm so glad it didn't do that in the middle! So, I'm probably going to have to purchase a new printer (yaaaaaay) and then get the ball rolling again.

I'll definitely be back to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, but until then be safe in your travels and shopping and have a wonderful time this weekend!
