Twelve Weeks of Christmas Week 7

How was your Black Friday?  Hope you didn't take part in any of these kinds of crazy scenarios!


When we start giving higher value to getting a good deal over a human life, we should all give our heads a shake!  Really???  I mean, these people didn't even skip a beat when they heard someone had been killed!  It sure made me wonder about where we've come.  We get all hot and bothered over someone saying, "Merry Christmas!" or professing to be a Christian, but we think nothing of trampling someone to death, just to get a bargain on some piece of inanimate junk!!?!  I know that's a huge generalization and not everyone is like that, but I see more and more evidence of twisted values these days.  I wish we could all see ourselves from a different perspective from time to time.

Sorry for the rant, but this article really threw me.  Let's get on to a more pleasant subject.  If you remember, I shared the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit with you at Thanksgiving, but a little too late for you to do anything with it.  I told you then that I could see it being used, with a few modifications, for a lovely Christmas table setting as well.

So today, I got the kit out again and this time created a Christmas table scape, using the same kit, but adding some Christmas touches.  Here's how it looked:





Would you like to receive instructions for making all these elements for this festive table setting?   It's as easy as sending me an email, with your email address, and I will send you a copy of the tutorial.  It's all complete and ready to send out in two parts:  one, with the napkin holders and table tents; and the other with the candles.  Let me know if you would like me to add you to my mailing list for more projects like this one.




And if you would like to do some crafty Christmas shopping but want to avoid the zoos of the stores and malls at this time of year, why not sit back in the comfort of your own home and browse my On-Line Store.  There's huge sale going on now, but only until Monday night, so it's a great time to satisfy your stamping cravings and save up to 50% off.

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think of the incident I linked you to at the beginning of my post.

Thanks, Amy! I showcased it too late for Thanksgiving, so I was determined to make it work for Christmas.
