My apologies for the late posting. Blogger was having technical difficulties with loading pictures last night and this morning. I finally used a different browser and it worked. Yay!
Tawny shares some of her crafting ideas for the holidays with us. Hope you enjoy her creativity—both with the craft projects and her new story.
For my crafting fun this year, I’m doing few gift projects. One is an advent calendar. I used my oldest daughter’s new puppy for the photo on the first one, and a picture of my youngest daughter and our shepherd mix when she was a pup for the other. Keeping with the pet theme, the other gifty project I’m doing are pet ornaments. I made one last year for myself and figured it’d be a great present for the pet-loving people on my list (at least, if I have pictures of their pets, it will *g*) I used an old CD, covered with paper and punched holes all around. Super simple and quick, and a gift I’m hoping my youngest daughter will help with J
I don’t think there were a lot of crafty sort of gifts in the Black home when my hero, Caleb was growing up. But even deprived of glitter and paste, this is a family that embraces traditions. Of course, their traditions fall more toward ways to con people (especially each other) but still... ya gotta love a family that keeps tradition alive, right? Caleb didn’t celebrate the holidays much after he left his hometown. Instead, he entered the dark, dreary world of undercover DEA work. So coming home at the holidays is more than just a demand to deal with his past, it’s also a chance to reconnect with the joy of the holidays. And small, eccentric towns like Black Oak do the holidays up right!
- So how about you?
Are you a fan of holiday crafts? If not, what traditions do you tend to follow?
And I have a question... what kind of goodies and treats would you suggest I fill the advent calendars with? I can only give my kids a certain amount of candy before I start seeing visions of dental bills dancing in my head :-D
- Share your thoughts, and I’ll draw a random name from the comments to win their very own signed copy of Caleb’s story, SEX, LIES AND MISTLETOE!
Undercover DEA agent Caleb Black is home for the holidays—possibly to bust his own father. But maybe Caleb's con man dad isn't the one running drugs through the small town of Black Oak. Maybe it's the green eyed goddess who runs the New Age shop and has Caleb under her sultry spell.Pandora Easton saved the family store with two words: sex sells. And her delectable aphrodisiacs really work, as she's proven with notorious bad boy Caleb again and again and again.Little does she guess that, in the end, her most potent potion will be the truth...EXCERPT
