If you read my blog, you know I'm really excited about my brand new HP Officejet 7500A Printer. What I love most about it is that it can do everything! It great for professional printing, home printing, photo printing, faxing, copying, and crafts. Cool, right?
So yesterday, I told my husband, David, how much I loved it, and his response was, "If you love it so much, why don't you just marry it?" Hmmm.
Since I can't actually marry it (although after his comment, I was ready to), I thought I'd give away a printer, and not just because it's the holidays, but because I want someone else to understand my feelings!

I feel honored that I get to show off the work of such creative people. I really do love my job and that is one of the main reasons.
Thank you to everyone who participated. I hope you get a lot of exposure for the beautiful items you've made.
And now, without further adieu, here are my top 12 favorite snowflake items, in no particular order (there were so many I loved, my husband had to play tie breaker on a few and I still had to pick 12 instead of 10)...
Thanks again to all of you talented people who added your items. I'm planning to do another design challenge for Valentine's Day. I hope you'll join then too.
And tomorrow, I will be doing a random drawing where one of you will win an HP Officejet 7500A Printer! Good luck!

It's almost Christmas! Here's a way to get into the spirit with some more Christmas dessert table "eye candy." Enjoy... and have a very merry and safe Christmas!
Rebecca's Blake's Winter Candyland
Courtney's Pink Gingerbread House Tea Party
Nicole's Sugar Plum Fairy Birthday Party
Renee's Red & Blue Christmas Party

Stay tuned for New Year's party tables coming soon...
Now she's being unbelievably generous by putting together another tutorial, this one for how she made her dramatic gumdrop branch centerpieces. Thank you, Nicole...
When designing my Sugar Plum Fairy party, I was on a tight budget. I didn't have money for lavish floral arrangements, so I had to be creative. I wanted something that would carry through the wintry Sugar Plum Fairy theme, and came up with these below:
They're incredibly easy to make, cost very little, and were striking because of their large size.
- Branches (I just gathered mine when our neighbor did some massive trimming of his mesquite trees)
- Spray paint (I used silver)
- Some type of vessel or vase
- Either styrofoam or stones to keep the sticks in place
- gumdrops (optional, but cute!)
1) Break off branches in whatever desired length.
2) Spray paint branches any color.
Thank you, Nicole for another great tutorial!
If you make a centerpiece like this for one of your parties, please email me photos so I can post them.
