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!

Stamps: TGF Harold with Jam digi stamp, CTMH Key to My Heart and Small Chocolate Alpha sets
Paper: CTMH Veranda L2pp, PTI cs (Harold)
Other: CTMH ribbon, buttons, pearls, anchors, inks, hemp, and metal charm. Copics, Primas, Holtz Shimmer Spritz, staples

Getting "Sentimental"

It's another Farm Fresh Friday challenge! Today, we're getting "sentimental"! This time create a scrapbook page with a phrase, quote, or poem that reminds you of someone you love. Be sure to use a TGF image!

For my SB page, I decided to scrap pictures from Leavenworth, WA. It's this cute Bavarian town in the Cascade Mountains that plays host to a beautiful tree-lighting ceremony. The trees and all the buildings in town have lights EVERYWHERE!

My friends and I go every year on a chartered bus trip through my job at Safeway. That way we can shop (and drink German beers) til we drop, and have a safe ride home! In fact, We're going again this Sunday! Can't wait!
I thought pairing Toby and his snowboard with this was perfect. This Emerson quote was also the perfect one for the "friend" theme of this page. Emerson is my favorite.
So head on over to the TGF blog for all the challenge details and some great DT inspiration! The prize will be the *NEW* "Because of You" sentiment set from TGF!!
Materials: TGF Toby Snowboard digi image. CTMH Magic Moments L1 scrapbook kit, Cocoa and Indian Corn Blue inks, buttons, brad, hemp. Copics, quote stamp (from somewhere...)

Farm Fresh Friday--Let it Snow!

Hello everyone! Back again with another Farm Fresh Friday from The Greeting Farm! This week's challenge is to use some kind of snow or snow element (snowflakes, liquid applique, glitter, flowersoft, etc.) on your project this week!

This is an easy one for me! I've been sitting on this MS felt snowflake ribbon for awhile an keep meaning to use it.....and keep forgetting about it. This time I didn't though! I paired it with some nice and simple CTMH dp, ribbon, and a snowflake punch. Looks great with my little snowball-throwing bunny friends here. Maggie sure did get Ricky good! Haha! This image always makes me smile. That's what I'd totally do to my brother!

So head on over to the TGF blog for all the challenge details and some fabby inspiration. Prize is O/A Fuzzy Wuzzy-a FULL 4x6 set!

Stamps: TGF Ricky/Maggie digi, CTMH Thoughtful Seasons
