All-digi December blog hop — and a Thanksgiving recap

My December digis are here — a fresh-picked bouquet of wintery wonders, and a splashy set of Camellias, each with a unique sentiment. Will you create something special with them this winter? Maybe a non-traditional holiday card, or create a repeat background pattern and whip up some wrapping paper?

I hope you’ll spend some precious moments enjoying the Bloom Brigade’s Winter Blitz Collection cards — these women have their creativity stun guns set to full swoon ahead:

If you go around to all the blogs and leave a comment, you have a chance to win the entire digital release! Woooohooo what are you waiting for?


Oops, you can’t pull me off the stage yet, still have a few more things to share.... I HOPE YOU ALL had a MAGNIFICENT Thanksgiving weekend!! One filled with family, friends, food, and above all — a feeling of gratefulness and love. We hosted a Thanksgiving day meal with a Mexican food theme for the second year in a row (big fans of guacamole, pico, and my mom’s enchiladas ’round here, BIG fans!), it was so cozy and crazy and festive!

With my beautiful mamacita Susan before mealtime madness

I got really into creating the tablescape with vibrant plants, candles, colorful peppers and pumpkins—plus the kids’ pinecone-and-pipecleaner turkeys they made back in nursery school. The American Girl dolls had their own table set by Lulu, Sylvia, and Clara, with tiny placecards and placesettings and doll food (yes, we have the American Girl taco party set).

The girls each had their dolls present at the table, and Finn had two stuffed animal cats.
The enchiladas from my childhood (thanks, Mom!) were beside Great Aunt Mildred’s cranberry jello salad.
Good times in my tiny living room, it was full to the gills but filled with love!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! ¡OLÉ! And two days later, we were putting up the tree in this same room.

Doug fixed himself tacos for breakfast for the next three days and we lived happily ever after.


  1. Okay... this is about as charming as it gets! I just FEEL the love!!! And I laughed OUT LOUD at the fact that Finn offered up two stuffed cats that the American Girl Doll table - HYSTERICAL! I have a feeling that kid would keep me laughing! ;-) One day you need to share your mamacita's enchilada recipe with me. I love me some Mexican food! So glad you had a crazy, loving, warm and fuzzy holiday. Heres to many more! ~Julie

    p.s. I am digging on your rug and curtains! ;-)

    1. Jules, I didn't even get to the part about Finn waking up at 6:30 Thanksgiving morning and taking a bath (without being asked - what 9-year-old boy does that?), then getting into a tuxedo, bow tie, and fedora (again, unsolicited). He went on to entertain the guests with magic tricks and intermittent bouts of squirting people with a water pistol filled with Fresca. Hehe! Thank you for the kind words!! I'll get that recipe for you, and soon I'll be making your pumpkin bars!

  2. Yum I love good mexican food!!! This release is fabulous and I hope you are going to make stamps from this also. The DT creations are sensational as well.

  3. I love both of the digi designs, great job! I would have loved to go to your house for those yummy looking enchiladas. Now I'm hungry, LOL! Every one of the Bloom Brigade did a beautiful job with your designs, thanks for hosting this hop.
