Big On Christmas... and Pencils Too



Still swamped with graduation prep... but though I'd share this cute card and pencil holder from none other than Stampin' Up!  The pencil box is very similar to one I case'd and posted back in February 2008...but now with a Christmas theme. (Click Here to view that post).  I tried to find the original box post by Sharon Johnson NO TIME TO STAMP but was unsuccessful... I can tell you the original was posted in January or February 2008... but don't really have spare time to find the exact post even though Sharon has provided a fabulous search box on her blog, I didn't have much luck!


Today I'll be painting and sanding again... the clock is ticking away, company in just THREE more days.. Yikes!
