I am so excited to have the opportunity to host an exciting giveaway for the CSN stores! In case you’re not familiar with them, CSN is comprised of over 200 online stores, where you can find everything from Delsey luggage to Le Creuset cookware.
After spending the last weeks or months doing Christmas shopping for everyone else in your life, you can get something to pamper yourself and there are lots of options to do that!
Here are some of my top picks: (all images linked)
And there is so much more! I literally lose time looking through the store! I know the winner is going to have a hard time choosing what to get with their $35 gift card!
And as a bonus, I’m going to give you 3 chances to win!
--First, leave a comment on this post with what you’re hoping to find under the Christmas tree!
--Get a second chance to win by following my blog. Leave me a comment so that I know to count it!
--Get a third chance to win by liking me on Facebook (you can do it right from this page over on the right hand side). Leave me a comment so that I know to count it! You do not need to be a new “liker”, if you’re already a fan it counts too!

I plan on packing up cookies and treats in my Square Boxes and No Cut Bags :) Well I hope you’re more prepared than I am, but in case you’re not (or maybe want to get a head start on Valentine’s Day!) use coupon code wbdBlogDec25 to get 25% off your purchase from my store before Dec 31, 2010!

Actually, I've been working on designing myself a CT binder :O I'm on a few CTs and while, for the most part, the rules are the same, they each have their own release days. So, I have to be able to keep track on who has what releasing when :O
So, here's how it's starting:

My kids found out that their bus driver, Kelly, had been rear-ended, and asked if they could make her a card. How sweet is that? So, I went to work doing the Photoshop part, using a premade template that I had (some really cute ones are available at Brownie Scraps :)).
Then, I gave them some gel pens and let them decorate, and sign their own name.
They had a blast, and they felt so good about making something for someone they really like.

These place cards are so cute and were perfect for labeling my yummy treats. Since they were supposed to be birthday treats, I used pieces of just about every birthday kit in the Brownie Scraps store and came up with these fun cards.
You can find the templates for the place cards and some cute matching napkin rings HERE in the store. And I can't show you those yummy treats without sharing the recipe, so if you're looking for some fabulous cheesecake bars for your December treats, I highly recommend this one. Enjoy!
Cherry Cheese Bars
1 c walnut pieces, divided
1-1/4 c flour
1/2 c brownie sugar
1/2 c coconut
2 pkg (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
2/3 c sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling*
Heat oven to 350. Grease 13x9x2-inch pan. Chop 1/2 c nuts coarsely. Reserve for topping. Chop remaining 1/2 c nuts finely. For base, combine flour and brown sugar in medium bowl. Cut in 1/2 c butter until fine crumbs forom. Add 1/2 c finely chopped nuts and coconut. Mix well. Resreve 1/2 c crumbs for topping. Press remaining crumbs in bottom of pan. Bake at 50 for 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Do not overbake. For filling, combine cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in small bowl. Beat at medium speed until well blended.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day with their families! I unfortunately was struck with a nasty stomach flu that’s making it's rounds here. So I decided to forgo our big family dinner and am staying home and resting. I did have enough energy to make a run to the grocery store and made some homemade turkey soup. Not the same as traditional turkey dinner, but it tasted better to me!
I promised you some Christmas projects and the first batch is in the store!
Save $2 when you buy the bundle!
Check out the awesome ornaments my team, the Supremes and I made!
Are you inspired yet? I see lots of handcrafted ornaments in our futures! I’m also giving away 2 of the Bundles! One HERE at Brownie Scraps, and one HERE at DigiShopTalk! I’ll be picking winners tomorrow so scoot on over and leave a comment for your chance to win!
