Christmas with Crafting with Tabatha

Well Ladies I have decided that I am going to be having a Christmas give a away.  I was thinking of posting pictures put I decided that I want it to be a suprise.  You have from now until Sunday to leave a comment on my blog.  I will then pick 2 people to be the lucky winners.  GOOD LUCK LADIES

Tea and Tatting Tuesday......

I recently started drinking tea from Teavana.  I have found a few teas that I have fallen in love with.  I wanted to share a few of the combinations that I have been drinking. 

The first one is.....  Sakura Allure Green Tea - Description:  Elegantly cut bamboo is the base of this enchanting green tea blend, enhancing the clean refreshing taste of cherry, pineapple, mango, rose and hibiscus. The Kyoto temple's Sakura blossoms in full bloom make the spiritual coupling of floral and fruit come alive as rose and hibiscus intertwine with lively cherry, mango and candied pineapple. SUPERFRUIT ENHANCED

Mixed with

The second on is....  Weight To Go! Pu-erh Tea - Description:  Enticing, tantalizing and truly energizing this rosy blush blend of pu-erh black and green oolong teas merge to create an intoxicating mix of sweet fruit with bright mint. Sweet strawberries and golden delicious apples swirl into peppermint and spearmint and create guilt-free, slimful beauty inside and out. SUPERFRUIT ENHANCED

I have a 16 oz cup of this every morning now and it has helped decrease my appitate.  I am not as hungry anymore.  The taste is amazing along with the smell.  I have taken a few pictures of my morning tea to share with you as well.

Tea in Tins

The second flavor of tea that I drink are Blueberry Bliss Rooibos Tea and Strawberry Lemonade Herbal Tea.  This is an amazing combination as well.  Take the time and look at the website.  I have got several of my co-workers drinking this now. 

As far as what's on my shuttles I am working on another heart.  I will post it when I have it done. 

Day 20 Oops

This morning before Collin went to school he just had to open up my Advent Swap Items from Wanda.  He told me he got the package and just as he opened the box I looked at the tag and he opened the wrong one.  He accidentally opened the 21st.  So we decided that tomorrow we will open day 20.  I wanted to share my really nice gifts from Wanda. 

The color is way off I didn't have very good light this morning as it is raining at the house.  The scissors are just soo cute I can't wait to use them. 

Thank you Wanda!

Tatted Heart

Over the last few weeks there had been a lot of heartache and tears.  A lot of things are going on and well to help me look forward to some up coming things I have made myself a Tatted Heart to put on my Tree in my bedroom that I look at each time I pass in and out of my room.  It is helping me heal and hope it bring me all the best luck in the world that I need at this point in my life. 

eBay Winner

A few weeks ago I was playing on eBay and found this auction of threads and a metal shuttle.  I had been trying to win several things but the others never came through. 

This is my 1st metal shuttle :)

As you can see below there are all different kinds of colors to work with.  I have my eye on a gold color that I want to use to make Wanda's Bell Pattern that she made. 

Maybe, just Maybe I'll share a ball or 2 soon with another give-a-way?  What do you ladies think of that?


My dad wanted to add a little bit of Christmas to the living room so I got one of the little fiber optic trees like I have for in the living room.  He wanted snowflakes in a hurry to put on it.  So I picked something small that I could whip up fast to keep him happy.  Here is one that I have to share. 

Pay it Forward Gift

Oh several weeks back Wanda had done a Pay it Forward Gift.  I was lucky enough to be one of the winners.  I have been so wrapped up with so much other stuff that I am just getting around to posting the pictures of the gift.  I just adore it so much.  I it in my purse and when I need to put it in my back pack for work!  Thank you for the a wonderful gift.
