You make me SMILE. Open House LOVE

Well.....44 Fourth Street was certainly THE place to be last Saturday!  Thank you to those who came out to our Christmas Open House!  Everyone was in the Christmas spirit shopping and sampling and doing little make and takes.  You took time out of your busy weekend to visit and that meant the world to me.  I'm STILL smiling over here. ♥

Have a look at our make and take above.  We created a 3x3 tag perfect for your gifts this year.  For those of you interested, I cut white card stock 3x3 and the patterned paper 2.75x2.75".  We then stamped the snowman or elf girl in dark green ink and then used either water colour pencils or copic markers to add a little colour.  We then cut out the image and popped it up with a pop dot and added a little glitter and an adorable sentiment.  Ta da!  Easy.  Peasey.  Perfect for this time of the year!

Here are the stamp sets we used.  Both are in stock now.

Elves by Lia -  $8.50

You Melt my Heart - $22.50

So, just in case you were wondering, the apple cider received rave reviews.  Ha!  Here is the recipe in case any of you are wanting to try this at home.

Slow Cooker Apple Cider (from Country Living - Nov 2015)

Combine the following in a slow cooker:
  • 64 oz. apple cider (I used PC fresh pressed apple not buy the mulled!).
  • 6 chai tea bags
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 split vanilla bean
Let simmer for 3-4 hours.
Discard tea bags.
Stir in 1/4 cup lemon juice
Serve warm with apple slices and cinnamon sticks

Hope all is well and you are feeling the Christmas spirit (even with these mild temperatures!).
