Thank you to everyone who commented on our first blog post.  I was amazed at how many people saw the post late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.  I enjoyed reading your comments on the way to my in-laws house for Thanksgiving!  The winners of the DCWV paper packs are:

Super fantastic! We had a blast on the Scrapping Turtle cruise that you put together. I think I got more "having fun" than scrapbooking done! It was awesome.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  
I started decorating for Christmas today (it is my day off...don't worry...Gail is manning the phones).  Decorating is not as easy as it used to be (before kids).  My son wanted to help with everything but there wasn't much he could do.  I wasn't exactly going to let him climb the ladder to hang the garland over the front door.  :)  I have yet to put up the Christmas tree and my nativity set.  Maybe tomorrow??

I've gotta say - I'm stocking proud!  My mom purchased stockings for me and my husband when we got married.  My husband's is the blue one and mine is white.  When my first child was on the way, I decided to make a matching stocking for him.  I tediously hand beaded those snow flakes.  It took forever but I was super excited when it was completed.  I just completed my daughter's stocking last week.  Hers is red.

More Christmas decorations to come.  Wait until you see Gail's beautiful decor!

Our First Post!!

We've finally taken the plunge...we now have a Cruise & Crop Blog!  Gail and I (Cheri) are super excited about it.

The purpose of this blog will be to post listings of new Cruise & Crop cruises, talk about cruising in general and share with you memories of past Cruise & Crop cruises.  And what would a blog be without crafty project pictures!  Gail and I will be posting some of our own as well as inviting guest designers to join in the fun.

To celebrate we are hosting a giveaway right away!  All you have to do leave a comment under this post.  And if you could subscribe to our Blog, that would be wonderful too!  Die Cuts With a View was generous to donate some Stacks!  We will be giving away TWO Simply Autumn stacks during this first giveaway.  And there will be more DCWV stacks to follow in the coming months!

Check out this cute wreath we made with Erin & Amy (of DCWV) on the Michaels Where Creativity Happens Crafting Cruise in October.
