Softpencil Customer Blog Hop - Christmas Style



Hey there Peeps! Welcome to the Softpencil Customer Blog Hop! If you've come from Lisa's awesome blog, you're in the right spot. If not, head over to the beginning at Softpencil to get started.

Still posting from Starbucks, but only until the first of July. We're moving into a new house and I can hardly wait! We still can't get anywhere with Comcast, so instead of waiting until the spousal unit retires next spring, we're moving off the military post now. We'll get DSL as soon as we move into the new place. I can hardly wait, even though I truly hate to move. Packing and unpacking. UGH!

I truly loved being on the DT for Softpencil, so when I found out that there was going to be a customer blog hop, you can bet I was going to sign up for that! Elizabeth's designs are so super sweet and a lot of fun to colour. Since they're digital, you can print them out in whatever size you need for your project. I love the versatility!

Don't laugh too hard at the image I chose. I'm trying to work on Christmas a little at a time throughout the year so that I'm not scrambling at the last minute in December, like I usually end up doing. So Michu came out to play in Santa's bag.
I used the sketch challenge from Oh, Alice! I've missed playing along, but I think I've worked out a really good system for challenges and blog posts now. We'll see how well it works over the next week or so. The big question? Can I still embroider at the same time. Hmm....

Hop on over to Ileana's blog next and see what she has to share today!
