Warm Birthday Wishes Tag

What the heck happened to Thanksgiving?!  I can't believe that I haven't posted in almost 2 months, really?!  I've been crafting/creating my life out, too.  I wish I had pictures to show, but, of course, I was so pressed for time that I didn't take any.  We won't mention that my blog got hacked, and it wouldn't let me access to it unless I purchased a domain for it?!  Thanks to two nice gentlemen from Google, I was able to fix it and not have to pay anything.

Let's see, I've worked Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.  For all of our great team members that worked that those days, I made small gifts to show how grateful we were that they came to to work on those days.  So, that would be anywhere from  45-60 people at our venue, multiply that times 4 holidays and that equals way too many to count.  I also did a small craft fair in early December.  The holidays are some of the busiest days for our us here in the tourist area of Central Florida.  Basically, I would get up early craft, go to work, come home, craft, go to bed and just repeat every day......  (Did I mention that I ride my bike to work every day and it's 6 miles each way?)

Additionally, I did some holiday baking.  I sent boxes of homemade treats to my Dad and Brother up in Massachusetts.  I did make some pretty neat tags with my Cricut for the goodies, and even kept an extra one that I will be posting.  

Today, I made a tag for my Mom.  Her birthday is coming up, and she has been reminding us of it!  In our family, we are very proud of our ages and make no effort to hide them.  We love our birthdays!

Of course, I used two of my favorite companies, My Favorite Things and Papertrey Ink.  This tag was perfect to compliment a pretty bottle of hand soap from Bath and Body Works.  I just love that store and could spend lots of $$$ that I don't have in there!
