This I like . . .

The tablescape above is a suggestion from Better Homes and Gardens. Glass candle holders are used to elevate red metallic ornaments that sparkle with "NOEL". Many times, beautiful ornaments on a Christmas tree are upstaged by the competition. I like to showcase some of my favorites on top of a crystal goblet, vintage glass, or a charming collectible that will keep the ornament stable.

– Tim Holtz

With only 19 days until Christmas, I have been throwing my creative juices into the blender. I need to be a tad frugal this year, so I have been seeking inspiration online. Inevitably, I always find things that I like for me.

Tim Holtz Products

Papercrafting is a passion of mine and I have drawers and shelves of supplies to prove it. When I saw this Stamp Pad Case by Tim Holtz, my heart fluttered. My present storage method is unsatisfactory, and I've needed something accessible and portable. This would do the trick!

Tim is also featuring "The 12 Tags of Christmas" on his blog. Each day he demonstrates numerous stamping and papercrafting techniques to create eye catching Christmas tags. He is presently on day 6.
