Hi Everybody!


Thanks so much for joining me and these other fantabulously talented ladies in celebrating Black Friday!  Here is the lineup in case you have to stop or get lost along the way:

I usually don't go shopping on black Friday, but only because it's toward the end of the month when my budget has already come and gone!  And of course it kinda bums me out on all the things I'm missing out on.  But this year I honestly have a different feeling about it.  I have such an amazing family, and have had to adjust to some ups and downs this year with the economy like so many others.  But I for sure think it's a silver lining that I have learned how to appreciate the things I have, and how to do more with less.  And I have made some special friends through Facebook that are SO excited when they find bargains (a couple of them I mention in my video), that I get excited with them, and can't wait to see what they create with their finds!!  Ok, so let's put away the tissues from my sappy speech, and get to the projects!!  And also, let me apologize for my video.  I was making this late at night, and totally planned to make another one (since I wasn't that crazy about this one), but ran out of time!  So I'm really sorry for 1-it lagging in some places, 2-how many times I said Umm, and 3-how long it takes for me to put those jewels on at the end!!  But enjoy it anyway :P
