Hostess with the Mostest!!

Hello everyone!

First off, I want to say SORRY for not posting hardly at all this last month. It has been one CRAZY holiday season. Ever since I started at my new store, I feel like I haven't been able to catch up on anything. Especially since the week I take off every year to make all my Christmas cards and gifts was the week before we opened the store. So I appoligize, and I hope to be posting more regularly after the holiday.

Now, onto this week's Farm Fresh Friday challenge!!

DO YOU have an idea for a hostess gift with the MOSTEST???

..mostest WHAT? You ask?

Mostest MOJO, we say! That's right! Today it is all about DOMESTIC DIVA-ism on the Farm and we have a SPECIAL, TWO-week long contest for you starting TODAY on the TGF Blog!
With all of the hustle and bustle this time of year, we want to make sure that you all have PLENTY of time to play, and with the season of holiday parties upon us, what BETTER challenge to issue than to create a HOSTESS GIFT w/ the MOSTEST :)

Here's what I made:

My good friend Josie is a chef, and she's always hosting some sort of dinner party at her house. (great friend to have, let me tell ya! YUM!) But everytime somebody arrives, she has to stop and explain every dish all over again. I thought she would have lots of fun using this dry-erase menu board I created! Hopefully she doesn't see this post via FB before the 25th!

I simply made this 12 x 12 base page, complete with an area for the menu and adorable Harold who is ready to EAT, and popped it into a shadow box.

Here's a close up of Harold and his spot in the display....

And then here's the menu space...

And here's what it looks like once it's in the shadow box (Ott light reflection not included! Lol!). I covered the marker in matching paper, and wrote up my own sample menu. I think I might've mispelled some things, but you get the gist.

The challenge begins TODAY and will go through DECEMBER 30th, 2011 at 8pm CST. Just upload your Hostess Gift idea using TGF Stamps to the TGF Galleria>Contests/Challenges>Hostess Mostest Challenge.

The WINNER of this challenge wins ONE sweet slice! That's right! We have a CHEEKY CHERRY PIE stamp up for grabs....but there's MORE....hmmm, like how about the ENTIRE JANUARY RELEASE?!? That's right! This is HUGE prize and there is plenty of time to play!

The TGF Design Teams will be back with MORE examples next week just to re-spark your Mojo during this busy holiday season....but for now, get down w/ your inner Domestic Diva and HAVE FUN!
