Well Happy Monday! Just got this little note that Amazon is starting it's Black Friday sales today. The cute little HP notebook is already gone and the email went out at 4am~ wild and crazy stuff!!
For all the crafters out there just do a Google search for Black Friday and all your shops will pop up. I was at the craft store this last week and it was busy but not the crowds you find on Friday. Still the same good deals but earlier!
Remember what was in the news last year at the Walmart in NY Black Friday? Not pretty. So maybe retailers are expanding the deals this year to keep the crowds under control. Honestly, I like to get a deal all year round and will wait if I have to. Crowds, the parking and the whole thing is not me.
Online all the way! I love to see the UPS truck stop in front of the house with a cup of coffee in my hand and Christmas music playing in the background! ~Kristine

Hi! I hope that you have had a great weekend. The weather was really Fall like here and we were loving it!! Tonight I dared to dream and put on my Pottery Barn Classic Christmas Trilogy Cd's. Wonderful. Even plugged a tiny tree with white twinkle lights in on the butterfly table! Thanks for all your sweet messages. I am always surprised to see people (other than my Mom) are reading this!! ~Kristine

I have to say that I am a lover of Netflix. All in all a great idea and super easy! Now they have added more fun to the mix. There is a free disk (DVD) that you request through Netflix that allows you to stream movies on demand with out having to get that special box to hook up next to the TV. Instead you now have this DVD in your PlayStation and voila there are all these great movies on your TV instead of your computer!! Love it :-) ~Kristine

Well there is a huge push for the Holidays right round the corner! I should start to think about Thanksgiving and the menu. But first I have always loved the variation of the keep calm and carry on. You can find these cute things at ANNECHOVIET. There are so many fun shops on Etsy that spin this into a whole new meaning! ~Kristine
PS - I posted some new butterflies last night too!

A quick stop out of the studio to the downstairs and saw that Merry Madagascar had auto tuned! I love it when I program something a few days out and then see it "pop" up as if by magic!! It was HILARIOUS!! (Too bad the little ones where already in bed!)
Back to business now. Lot's of orders to get ready! I wish my "wrap room looked like this! It is a wonderful store in Washington State and it inspires me!! (Now, where is that decaf peppermint latte with extra foam?) ~Kristine

Found some of these in the latest Martha Stewart December Magazine over the weekend. The pencils are amazing! If you spend $25 or more at UPS you can get a free subscription to Everyday Food or Body and Soul. I love both of these! At MarthaStewart.com she has some great templates to add to your season gifts. Happy Planning! ~Kristine

Just found out that Charleston is rated the #2 top American destination to visit by Conte Nast Traveler. Well then!
Here in Charleston we have a "Be A Tourist In Your Own Town" pass. It is good for the month of January and is really a blast. There are 4 other cities that do this too. Worth a Google search! ~Kristine
