Issue 14 (Nov/Dec 2007) Holiday Issue

Welcome friends to issue #14
We are staying close to home for the holidays this year. Thanksgiving is at my sister's house - hmmm I'll need a hostess gift, she loves silver bracelets, Diana's cobblestone links would be perfect. The neighborhood progressive party begins at our house, note to self - make a dozen of Sandra's snowflakes in different colors for wine charms. Then there's the holiday party at the home of Scott's boss, another hostess gift, perhaps one of Carole's crystal ornaments for his wife? Danny has eight different teachers this year, Pamela's snowman earrings for everyone! One of my best friends is turning 50 in December, she would adore Toika's Triangle Elements bracelet and I'll need to make myself one of Linda's Flame Fringe bracelets to wear to the party.....

Sound familiar? Lots of great projects in this issue to help you with your gifting and decorating needs. Hope you have a safe & wonderful holiday season.    Deb Moffett-Hall - Editor
