CG Ornament Exchange...it's BACK!!!

CG Ornament Exchange is HERE!!!

As I have been trying to get my life unpacked and put back together one thing kept running through my mind..."You have to be back up and blogging by November to do the ornament exchange!" 
This has become such a fun part of my holiday season, it really would not be the same without it, so here we go friends...
I am beyond thrilled to announce sign ups for this year's
Craft Goodies Christmas Ornament Exchange
are now OPEN...
Want to play along? Here's what you need to know:
Sign ups are open from today 11/06 through Monday 11/19.
To officially "sign-up" send me an email with your mailing address and full name as well as the number of ornaments {1-10} that you want to exchange.
Ornaments can be hand made or store bought, which ever fits your style and schedule. You will receive the same number of ornaments back that you send out. Please also include a card or note with your ornament to introduce yourself and pass along a little holiday cheer.
{It's kind of fun to include a small treat with your ornament but not necessary.}
You will receive an email by 11/21 with the names and addresses that you send your ornaments to--one ornament per name.
The names will all be different so making the same ornament is totally okay!
How you ship the ornaments is up to you, but please don't miss the deadline so that they arrive in time to hang them on the tree.

And last, I'd LOVE it if you'd email me a picture of your ornaments before you send them out. Last year I received so many notes back saying how cute the ornaments were and I had no idea what they looked like! So I'm just putting it out there...I WANT TO SEE ALL THE ORNAMENTS! And, I'm pretty sure everyone else does too...that way I can also share an exchange post high lighting all your awesome-ness.

***check my archives from Nov 2010 or  Nov 2011 for ideas from the past
Ornament-A-Day series***

That's it! Super simple and tons of fun! I'd love to have you join me. You can email me at { wmgar@comcast.net } to get on the list.

Happy Crafting.

LDS Wall Art 50 % 0ff Special Offer!!!

It's been so long, I almost forgot how to do this! But, I have a really neat little something to share with you. Something worth putting aside the house re-vamping and jumping back into blogging for. To be honest, this post won't appeal to all of you but to those that are willing to read a little further, I hope you find something worth holding onto in it.

To all my LDS friends out there, how many of you have a picture of a temple in your home?
To be honest, up until about two years ago it didn't seem all that important to me. I love the temple, I love what it symbolizes and the peace it brings but I failed to realize the connection that even just a picture could bring into my home. Until my very wise and loving bishop said to me and my husband that every home, every room that holds someone you love should contain a picture of the temple to remind us all that there is where we want to be.
It worked and I am proud to say that each of the main rooms and bedrooms in my home all have pictures of a temple in them. And too, it is amazing what just having a picture can do for the atmosphere of my home. It's become sort of a mini-mission for me. I am determined to share my bishop's knowledge with my family, my friends, my ward members, any one willing to listen. So it made perfect sense to me when I was contacted by a friend from LDS Wall Art to share what they have to offer with my friends here on my blog.
What they have are beautiful, museum quality canvas prints of many of the LDS temples. They are described as follows:
 "Temples are beautifully designed with watercolor aesthetics. They are printed on premium museum quality canvas and can be customized with up to two lines of personalized text. Customizations are not required but can complement the image by highlighting family names and/or the marriage/sealing date(s). Text positioning, font, and size are as shown in the product image
The Fine Art Custom Temple series was professionally photographed and edited by the artist in an effort to elegantly represent the beauty of each temple. The modern colors and textures resemble water color fine art which politely enhances any room. All customizations are done by the original artist to guarantee high quality and a pleasing aesthetic."

And I can tell you they are beautiful. I received a 12 x 18 inch enhanced print to look over and see if I thought it worthy of sharing with you here. I chose the Logan temple, as that's where my family was sealed when I was little. I love it. So much so, that I framed it and am planning on giving to my dad. The colors are subtle, very warm and comforting to look at. I truly believe he will enjoy it as much as I do and am thrilled to be able to share it with him.
So here's the part that I get to share with you. From now until the end of the year--that's December 31st, the good folks at LDS Wall Art are giving my readers 50% off the temple of your choice in the complete Fine Art Temple collection.
You get a premium museum quality canvas, available in two different sizes, that can be personalized for you and your family. What an amazing gift for an anniversary, sealing, Christmas, or even just because.
So go check it out.
You can find them at www.LDSWallArt.com and once you've found the temple you want be sure to use this code for your 50% off...
If you're not quite ready to order yet, don't miss out. Jump on over to their facebook page and "like" them for up to date promos, announcements, and general info.
Buy one from this great company or not, I would encourage you to have a picture of the temple in your home. Talk about the temple with your kids, let them know what a beautiful and special place it is so that they too will want to be there. Let the spirit of the temple fill your home and enjoy the peace that comes from it's presence.
Have a wonderful day, it's good to be back...
Happy Crafting to you all!
