nativity, coffee and giveaway

nativity gift set

Setting up the nativity scene is one of the fun parts of decorating for the holidays. Our set is very traditional looking but you know me and wanting things simple so this ornament follows that feeling. I made two to show you how changing just one color can make something look and feel completely different. Big difference right?

For the coffee lovers in the crew I have these cute holiday and any occasion sleeves in the shop now! 

Giveaway time! 
Since we're celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday here in the US I think it's the perfect time to offer a giveaway to thank all of you for supporting my work and for visiting here whenever you get a chance. I am giving away three $15 gift certificates to my shop. To enter simply leave me a comment—say hello or whatever you're in the mood to share—include your email address or a way to contact you. The giveaway will be open until Friday at 7pm (central) and I'll announce the winners on Monday of next week. Good luck!

Oh and by the way, my apologies for not getting the weekly freebie posted on Friday. It's up now—here.

Off to enjoy some family time!
Have a great week everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrating!
