to make some cuteness for yourself.
was also there and has another fabulous wrap up with more photos! Here she is all crafty, and behind her looking like she is clutching her pearls is Stephanie of Stephmodo
; I met her at my blogger meet up.
There may be a Christmas craft night so stay tuned...
So, I didn't take any pictures of myself, but Marie did another awesome wrap up
and a photo with me in it actually exists! I wonder where I am...
And here I am again, with Lyndsey, with yet, another awesome wrap up
! And you all thought I didn't 'exist'...
