I heard on the radio this morning that they were asking the question to their listeners “Is it too early to get into the Christmas Spirit?” And 67% of those who had called in had said “Yes it is”. Sigh, how sad is that. It’s not that it’s too early for the “Spirit” of Christmas, but that stores pushing the “buy this, buy that” right now seems a little early.
I think I’m safe to say that most of us crafters have been in the “Christmas” mode for awhile, making our cards, figuring out what we’re making, planning Hostess gifts etc…What? You haven’t started yet? Then do I have some classes for you! Let’s get into the true “spirit” of the season, and enjoy the process of creating our cards and gifts in a stress free environment. We have a whole pile of idea’s so let me tell you about some of them…

CSI Card Daily Drop-in Class $12
(Christmas Stamping Inspiration, not Crime Scene Investigation)
Entire Month of November
Need to get some Stamping Inspiration? Need to just get the Christmas cards done? Well, then this is the “See and Do” for you. We will have a Christmas Card kit put together for you to “Stamp a Stack”. The kit is $12 and contains everything you need to complete 6 Christmas cards (all the same style) excluding adhesive. Every Weekday will be a different card, and I’m hoping to have samples pre-done in plenty of time for you to pick and choose your favorites. You can drop in at your convenience, but you will need to bring your cutter, scissors, adhesives and brown ink pad if you like to ink your edges, we will provide everything else. This is the class to get it all done ahead of time, and with a new card each weekday that 20 different designs, and 120 cards! Whew!
We’ve Expanded! A Second Cherish the Thought is now open!
I know, right about now you’re asking yourself “What, is she crazy?” That’s a given! You should know me by now, tee hee. But seriously, we’ve opened a new booth at the Mosaic Market in Davis Bay on the Sunshine Coast. They used to have a Scrapbooking store in there, but she’s moved on and we had so many requests to get ourselves in there, that how could we refuse? If you know anyone out on the coast, let them know that we’ve moved in! We’re adding product weekly, and our Online store will also allow for pick-up at the Mosaic Market to save on shipping costs! Whoo Hoo, Cherish the Thought is now International! We’re Overseas! (Get it? You have to take the ferry Over the Sea to get to us, tee hee)
So we went out trick or treating on Sunday night with Ella’s medium sized Ghost Pail. This is the same pail we used last year and the size was perfect as we don’t really have a lot of houses in our complex that give out candy.
However, because we don’t have a lot of houses, we also don’t get a lot of kids, so many of our neighbours give out full size chocolate bars, bags of chips, and we even got a Book at one place, and a glow in the dark bracelet at another (Thanks Fay, that was REALLY cool, Ella went to sleep with it on her wrist!)
So we’ve finished one and a half of the next complex, and I’m now carrying all the bags of chips ‘cause her pail is full, when Andrew asks Ella if she wants to continue.
“Let’s go home” she says. Okay with us, we’re kind of done anyway. Then Ella adds
“So I can dump out my ghost pail and we can come out again”
Man she is too quick for us!
I guess next year we need a pillow case!
And with that
Stamp yourself Silly,
Adhere with Abandon,
And hope to see you at our CSI drop-ins getting into the REAL Christmas Spirit
