This week's Crafty Secrets Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers is being hosted by Jan and she's challenged us to ANYTHING CHRISTMAS!  Well, since I'm still working on tissue box covers for this weekend's local craft show, I used an image from the Crafty Secrets 'Vintage Christmas' stamp set and made this tissue box cover.

How thrilled was I to learn that it was showcased and commented on over the the Splitcoast Stampers Facebook Page.  This is a real honor for me and I was also thrilled to get a comment from Sandy Redburn (owner of Crafty Secrets) letting me know she will also be showcasing this creation in her upcoming newsletter.  HOW COOL IS THAT!!!

One more quick photo to share with you today is my granddaughter, Morgan.  She and her 'gang' spent Halloween night BOWLING!  Yep, a group of them dressed up and went to the 10 pm to 2 am bowling at the local alley.  She had a BLAST!! 
Glad she was able to stay awake for her job interview the next morning!!  Good News!  She GOT THE JOB ... starting tomorrow, she's a server at the Applebee's in Boardman, Ohio.  That should help with college expenses.  GOOD LUCK MO!!!

Okay ... hubby's home and HUNGRY!!  This will be last time we eat dinner out on the deck!  Temps are dropping so I'd better get the furniture put back in storage until next spring!   Uuugh!

Congrats on being featured - your Kleenex Box turned out wonderful! What a labor of love! Hope you and Lana have a good time shopping because we all know there is something out there that we don't have and that we must have : ) How fun to have a crafting buddy near by - I'll try not to be too envious!
