What a Card!

Isn't this a clever use of a vintage playing card? On Day 9 of Xmas, Group 1 will get to see what's beneath the paper! Crystal Neubauer created this simple and yet *so* pretty presentation of her gift.

Oh So Pretty!

Lucky 13!

From the looks of things, Maija Lepore has been busy in her workshop! I know you are probably wondering why there is a number 13 in the 12 days of Xmas. Well, to fit everyone in, we had to create a number 13 for one group. Each person in Group 1 will open Maija's gifts on the day when their own gift is being open so that there won't be a day without gifts for each of us! Come to think of it, we should have done that for both groups, but it's too late now! I will file that for next time!

Number Five is on the Wing!

Kristen Robinson is making her way to the post office to mail off these beautiful parcels for Group 1's 5th day of Xmas!
