Normally, we have a new release Every second Wednesday of the month however in January, we will be going to the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Convention so we will NOT have a new stamp release in January. The Craft and Hobby Association (CHA)Convention is located in Anaheim, California and super close to Disneyland.  We are looking forward to learning some great new things! One of the BEST things about this convention is you get to see the latest and greatest of the Craft and Hobby Industry are shown BEFORE they are released to the public! Instead of new stamp releases we will be showing you the latest products BEFORE THEY ARE released to the public. It is an amazing show and we hope you will join us in our adventure. If you are creative, you are going to LOVE IT! It will feel like you are right there with us! To check out pictures from last year, go to our photo album. You will see some AMAZING THINGS and we can't wait to share them with you!

  1. Beautiful projects! My fave is the Happy New Year! Genius! My fave tradition about Christmas is the night of Thanksgiving or the next day, watch Christmas movies, put up the tree, and decorate. I normally watch It's a Wonderful Life but this year watched Elf!

    1. Thank you for blog hopping with us. I love It's a Wonderful Life too. :)

  2. Your cards are awesome! I too always make my Christmas cards every year!

    1. Thank you, I just finished my first batch of cards just mailed them today. Will be working on the second batch hopefully mail them out by Friday. LOL.

  3. Yes, we have many traditions this time of year. My favorite is whatever I do with my family. Decorating the tree, looking at Christmas lights, and eating all the yummy treats.

  4. The countdown card is awesome!!!! Love that!. My tradition is making an origonal ornament for the tree each year:)

  5. Our Christmas traditions are putting up and decorating the Christmas tree and holiday baking/candy making. This year I am trying to start a new tradition with my young granddaughters. We are working on journals. It has been fun. The little one is 5 and the older one is 7. We each have a journal and watch "You Tube" videos to learn new things.

    1. Thank you for joining the blog hop. Awesome way to start a tradition with your granddaughters. :)

  6. We go eat breakfast with our grandkids on Christmas morning.

  7. Fabulous use of the sign language numbers with the 2015 countdown.

    Our family is in a transition period and so most traditions we've done in the past are not possible right at this point. One we have been able to keep going is putting up a Christmas stocking for each member of the family. I still use the one I've had for over 50 years. :)
