Black Friday Hoppin' with Taylored Expressions

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and was able to spend time with family and friends this most wonderful start of the holiday season.

Are any of you planning to venture out for the Black Friday savings? I am staying cozy at home and taking advantage of whatever savings I can find online.

First up...Taylored Expressions savings for YOU!

In honor of Black Friday and Cyber Monday (the two biggest shopping days of the year!), Taylored Expressions is offering 15% off everything in the store! Just use the promotional code TEBlackFriday upon checkout to receive the discount. You don't want to miss up to 50% off all JustRite products, Buy 2 Get 1 Free on Tiny Twinkles, and the new TE Shirts & Aprons!

If you're doing the Black Friday Hop with Taylored Expressions, you may be interested to see what I've done with my Perfect Package Card Box/Gift Box. (These come in a set of 2, and store approximately 8-12 standard A2 size cards and envelopes.) I've decorated my box to hold my Christmas cards as I make them...using Colorful Christmas patterned papers from My Mind's Eye. The cards inside all use various papers in the collection as well. I've chosen a pattern for my Perfect Package Box that isn't so "Christmasy", so that after the holidays are over..I will be able to continue using this. For the following few days, I will be posting the cards I've made and stored in the box so far.

I had to venture out for Black Friday. I'm working retail for a couple of months. It was pretty crazy, but people were pleasant.

This is a really pretty project. I love the color combo and that great punched trim. So pretty with the lush ribbon.
