It truly is a Marvelous Monday!  Blogger is finally letting me make this post.  Still having issues, but hopefully it will hold together and let me make this post. It is trying to log me out every few seconds, but at least it is letting me make the post. 
Trisha posted Sketch #339 over on Sketch Inspiration yesterday.  I hope that you will have a chance to create a layout or card using this sketch. 

Our lovely Nita Griffith created this fabulous page using Sketch #338 from last week.  We miss Nita and are anxious for her to return home from Saint Louis so we can see her smiling face again.
This more of the beautiful Authentique papers.  I absolutely love this line of papers and Nita created a beautiful layout using it. 

Have you signed up for any of the classes at the Jingle All the Way event this Saturday?  It's a great way to get some Christmas gifts ready for giving.

You can make this canvas to display all of your Christmas cards or give it to a friend to use for their cards.
Make some of these little felt bags to use for small gifts and gift cards.
This is an adorable mini album to either give someone or use yourself to preserve those holiday memories.
This is a really cute organizer to keep track of all of those many lists associated with the holiday season. 
Planning to give some wine as gifts this Christmas?  This burlap bag is a really cute way to present someone with that bottle of wine this year.

I hope you are able to join us this Saturday and take care of some of the gifts on your list this year.  See you there!


  1. Woohoo Marilyn! You win! Good to see the blog up and running again! Beautiful layout Nita! I'm liking this sketch...still need to go back and do last weeks and then this weeks! Great gift ideas! I like the canvas Christmas card holder mini book and organizer!

  2. Yay! Glad you are able to get in to get this post done, Marilyn. I know that can be so frustrating and glad you found out what it was. Those are some lovely projects for Christmas gifts. However, I don't really give many gifts. Families are too big and too spread out so we don't exchange plus I'm running out of room for extra holiday stuff. Guess I could purge. Ha, ha. Hope all that are signed up for these class have loads of fun on Saturday!
