Did you know that I do well with sitting on my butt and resting with my foot up, that in it's self is driving me crazy. My foot may hurt but my bum hurts worse from sitting on it too long.
Cass was working very hard this weekend to get your Sweet Treats ready for December so they are all set and are wonderful, 19 items and 15 of them are 40 years older or more!!!!! You might want to get them fast we only have 15 and if you did not reserve yours they are going fast, some before we were done packing.
You might want to stop by the store sometime soon we are also getting little goodie bags of little vintage treasures out for sale, we are working as fast as we can to get these ready for you.

I hope to get the tree up this weekend, there isn't a lot of time between now and Christmas this year, If all goes well maybe I'll post pictures. I did find my dining room this weekend, for those of you who do not know I'm not a neat person, there I said it, and a lot of my junk goes right into the dining room because we don't use it. I'm talking bags and bags of stuff, the stuff I bought in San Diego a few months ago was still in the bag in there, all my die cutting machines and dies, you get the picture. Well since Thanksgiving is this week and everyone is eating here we needed a place to eat so now I hae a dining room again and not a junk room, it will last through the Holiday season because I also use the table for wrapping gifts.
Well I should get ready for work, it's going to be a busy week getting ready for Black Friday sales we do have some really good stuff coming in for it so watch you email for the list and if you don't get our emails go to www.papertales.com and sign the guest book now!!!!!!

I know my red looks pink but it's my lighting, it is a beautful deep red with gold sparkles, and so is the green. The gold really does show through.
I can't wait to start using these in my projects.

I also have a few pictures of my Christmas house on the 10th, this you are making a cute little house that actually looks like something is going on in the windows and you have a tag book inside.
I also have a vintage Christmas book coming up on the 18th but I have no sample yet, the paper I'm using just made it into the store yesterday so that is on my list of things to do tonight and tomorrow, and don't forget that our annual Cookie Book is this month and space is limited this is always a fun event not only do you get the recipes of the cookies, plus pictures of how they look but you get to sample each of the cookies that night, yup we are talking about 20 different types of cookis for you to eat, now what could be better than that!!!!! That class in the 20th.
Well I suppose I should go get ready for work, I need to pack Novembers Sweet Treats today, you guys are going to love these.
Have a good day

Now to answer some of your questions;
I will be happy to sell some kits for this class, but I had to order more of Teresa's paper first so please let me know if you are seriously interested and I will figure out how to get it done.
Now as far as my source for the vintage stuff Oh how I wish there was a few places where I/we could go to pick up what we need or want, but it really is luck and lots of searching, yard sales antique stores, ebay. It takes time, I had the idea for the book when the papr came out and had already started my collection but took until now to get enough stuff, and a few of the items are reproductions, but only a few. It's not easy but I love the hunt for the next great treasure.
As far as knowing the girls at Paper Tales in San Diego, yes I do and Michelle and Helle are wonderful and sweet, I was just there and they have some great little vintage finds in there store they have someone that brings them in that does the searching, California is a great place to search.
Thank you once again for your kind words on my project. If you have anymore questions please let me know.

It is a very charming book.
Please keep and eye on our many classes coming up lots of them will be great for gifts, have some fun in a class and make a great gift at the same time.

Here is Michelle and Helle, they own and run Paper Tales in San Diego and I must say they are two of the sweetest girls I've met and the store is just charming it would definataly be worth the trip if you are anywhere around Southern California, I love all the vintage stuff they have there.
Here's another friend I made while in San Diego, while on Shelter Island, I could have pet him but I think ha wanted food, bye that time of the day so did I.
Guess where I am here??????
Guess who lives here???? I know you can't tell but this is Bugs Bunny's house or where he use to live he is even carved into the circle in the door. Yes we took a trolley ride in Beverly Hills.
You would think Jon would be smiling since he is on the Santa Monica Pier and just order us a
yup that's a big ole funnel cake, can't go to the peir and not have one, of course our just about blew away.
Can you guess where our Hotel is?????? Well just follow the smoke and you'll get closer. I don't see how people stand all the fires, and it's a constant almost, they have five seasons spring summer, fall winter and fire. No thank you, I had nose bleeds from it and let's not even mention traffic because of freeways being closed.
Although the smoke can make for a pretty picture, but I think I'd wait for clouds instead.
I know this is hard to see but while we stopped at a rest area for picture taking this sign killed me, yes it's a rattle snake warning sign, nice the side of the rest area I was trapesing all over outside boundaries to take pictures no signs go to the other side and these things were all over the place.
Well I really need to get going and get some stuff done.
Goodnight for now.
