Time to Blog Hop



Oh I do love these little hops....oh yes I do!


If you are following along in order then you have arrived here from the blog of the uber-talented Lisa Petrella.

Now, when I heard the theme for this hop, my mind started running on high gear. Should I do this? Or perhaps that? Oh and what about this idea? I started making my list and checking it twice (oh wait - that's next month...haha). But eventually I settled on these two little ideas.

First off - is a Candle Holder (or Candy holder). Now, keep in mind if you want to use this as a candle holder (and it works out quite well) you want to make sure that you are using FLAMELESS candles. This is very important otherwise your hard work may start a very unwanted and unwelcomed fire....don't ask me how I know this...just trust me....



Now I wanted to do a little close up on these because the picture really isn't doing it justice. Can't you just picture this little dish filled with holiday candy?




My second idea (cause I couldn't decide which one to use) is.....wait for it....wait for it....OK go look....

WRAPPING PAPER! That's right - why not make your own wrapping paper, especially with the holidays coming up! These two little goodies? They are gifts that will be making their way to my Twinkie this holiday season. Of course this is just a tease for her as she has to wait for Christmas to open them up! HAHAHA! (yes, I love giving just a little tease for goodies to come - that's how I roll!).



Now of course why wait for the just the holidays. You could always use ANY of the other Denami stamps to make a cute baby wrapping paper, or birthday, or any occasion.

Now don't forget, like in all of the hops, leave some blogger love in the form of a comment so you can be eligible for those yummy Denami Prizes!

If you get lost along the way just head on over to the DENAMI BLOG and start again.

Next up, the wonderful EMILY KEATON




Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!know!
