Creatively Christmas~

The single biggest blessing of blogging for me is the friendships I have made.  How else could I have connected with such amazingly talented people all across the world?  It's like having a giant creative brain trust of real-life friends.  Absolutely amazing - and I'm so grateful for it!

One of my real-life blogging friends is the incredibly talented Jennifer Rizzo.  She is an amazing artist chock full of creativity! She also has a huge heart!  I just LOVE her!

So today, I'm very excited to share with you her new book, Creatively Christmas

In her book, Jen shares fun stories, wonderful Christmas crafts, and beautiful Christmas home tours.  (She's a Christmas house tour ninja - you may recall that I participated in her Holiday Housewalk last week along with 30 or so other amazing bloggers!)
