The Annual Christmas Party at Art 'n Soul was alive with the holiday spirit on Sunday afternoon. All of us want to thank the many friends and customers who stopped in to see all of the new Christmas products, beautiful sample cards made by the Art 'n Soul staff during the last month, enjoy Alissa's warm apple cider and Sue's yummy baked goods.

Over the next several days, I'm going to post a few of the sample Christmas cards from the party so we might continue to share the creativity and 'how-to's'. They'll be on the tables for a while this week, so please stop in and take a close-up look for yourself.

Some of the holiday papers are already sold-out. When more deliveries arrive, I'll keep you posted here.

There are still 16 days until Halloween. There are 3 Halloween book kits left . . . the actual book is at Art 'n Soul for you to look through. The kits are $30 each and include the chipboard book, all of the paper, 12x12 chipboard die-cut sheet, 3-D sticker sheet, and other embellishments . . . and full instructions. Because I leave for Milan on the 23rd, the kit is only available if you purchase by this Friday, October 19, so I have sufficient time to put your kit together before I leave. Using the beautiful papers from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Halloween collection and some of Webster's Pages Once Upon a Halloween collection, you'll enjoy putting this book together as a Halloween Treat or a keepsake.
