Christmas in ...August?

I've been busy creating some new items for Christmas. Check out the latest in
Holiday Money Holders. Each tri-fold money holder is 6.5" x 3.25" and when opened has a die cut oval so your divine monetary gift can be seen easily...
For the holder titled, "recycle the season" I thought it would be fun to give this to anyone who is interested in going greener starting the new year. Maybe pop in a gift certificate from one of many terrific "green" websites! I think it's a peach of an idea.

Everyone loves this ornament, so I made it into a money holder with a nice seasonal message.

People of all ages like to hear from someone special that they've been good. Secretly, they probably were not?

Joy, Joy, Joy.

I had so much fun making this newcomer to add to my holiday repertoire! I adore the polka dots which allow this image to become a very happy holiday holder indeed!
I used this very clever dot marker. Depending on how hard you push down on it, is how small or large the dot becomes. Plus, it's double sided. One fat end for larger dots; the other end is much smaller. Most of the dots are outlined with my old standby rapidograph pen. A very jolly design~

I have liked this Hanukkah design since I made it a while ago. It's done in the SooBoo's fun & funky style with turquoise, blue and yellow. The letters are adorned with polka dots, stripes, swirls, waves, stars and inlines! Lots to look at but the colors bring it all together.

Lots of joy below. Each JOY is topped with a cute red, blue or green ornament. This particular design makes me very happy.

Four gift wrapped holiday gifts. For YOU.

Love, Joy, Peace
A really peaceful design

Cute swirly font for a whimsical design. These 3 packages are a delight. No ink is used on these packages. They are wispy green and red gems!

A design of dancing joys. Fun & Funky design. Dots, stripes and a ray of holiday sunshine in the O.

Another use for a tree.
Christmas in July.. well maybe August.

Guess what, people?
My girlfriend, Marnie, who highly stressed me making my SooBoo Designs website, has decided to include me in a home show October 9 this fall. I can't wait! I'll have lots of things for the girls who will be gathering at Marnie's house in Apex to look at. I am gathering up notepads, holiday gift tags, holiday note cards, and of course, everyone will be able to order there as well. I have a lot to do, so I had better get going!

Our child-free month has just about totally come to a close. It's going to be back to routine starting in late August for all of us. High school is not right around the corner's staring me in the face! I hope to make new friends during the band meetings and maybe, if we're lucky, during soccer games!

Enjoy your weekend~!

Peace Out!
