It’s almost time to start decorating the house for the holidays!  Or maybe you are one that started the day after Halloween?  You will want to add this sweet JOY picture frame to your decor.
See what SANTA'S LITTLE ELVES Design Team has created for you in their COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS collection of tutorials. See a new tutorial every Friday at

As you know, I was honored to be asked to be on Santa’s Little Elves design team.  We each created a project to share with you each Friday until Christmas.  

I love the Christmas Quilt bundle!!!  This is one of those bundles that I will use all year long.

The silver foil in this project makes it shine against that beautiful Old Olive plaid!

Are you ready to create it yourself?  I have a complete tutorial for you, courtesy of Santa’s Little Elves!  Just take your mobile device to your stamp space and create from here OR you can download the tutorial to save for later.

Would you rather save the tutorial to your computer?


Can I make a recommendation?  Create a file in your “Documents” on your computer and call it COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS so you can always find the downloads whenever you need them.  Or, you can always search the Categories (right side bar) and click on Countdown to Christmas.  You will see all of the tutorials in one place.

Stamparatus Update:  I am sorry to report that Stampin’ Up sold out of the first round of reservations in 15 minutes!  WOW!  You guys must REALLY be excited to get your hands on one.  I am too and guess what?  I didn’t even get to order one before they were sold out!  lol  Well, it’s a good thing there is another reservation window on December 5th.  I will try it again. 

Stay tuned to Simply Simple Stamping and I will give you the reminder!

My heart is so happy today!  We went to Ginny’s high school choir concert last night and it was such a blessing.  Ginny is in Show Choir and this is no ordinary show choir.  This choir works closely with some of the special needs kids each day, teaching them to love and appreciate music.  Most of them are non-verbal but BOY can they dance and smile!  The ones that are verbal sing with so much gusto, you melt!  If that doesn’t warm your heart, I don’t know what will.  What a wonderful concert watching these precious kids perform for us.  Standing ovation from the audience!

Ginny has a BIG heart for these kids and created a new program at her school called Moore Applause (Moore High School).  It’s a kid’s musical where their special friends are the STAR and the show choir kids are their shadow.  Ginny wanted these kids to know that feeling of being on stage, being the star of the show, hearing the applause, and that sense of pride in a performance.  The show choir kids are shadowing them in case they need help but the show is truly about them.  What Ginny didn’t expect was how her special friends blessed her. I am so proud of all the show choir kids and their love for their special friends.

I would LOVE to share photos or a video from last night but I’m not allowed to (privacy issues) but I will share what I can when the musical takes place in December.SaveSave
