I would like to say a huge thank you for all the lovely handmade cards and gifts I received this year and to Carole for the beautiful flowers. Thank you sugar addict, its wonderfully kind of you.
For all members of SCS who follow Sugar Nellie as a member company, join in with the Boxing day traditions over on the forum. A little thank you for our first year and great support received on the site. ;)
take care and stay warm
Some new snowy themed stamps coming in the New Year, keep those snowflake punches handy not only for Christmas cards but for warm winter wishes too.
If I get any peeks I will show you later but for now its just a quiet month all round in the House of Sugar, time to catch up with boring jobs like paperwork and sweeping the floors.
I still have most of my shopping to do, food is almost done but gifts are a little harder to find. We had our staff night out last week and my first traditional turkey dinner of the season.
Still looking for the perfect gingerbread house, any ideas?
Sugar Nellie gave to me...............
No rubber, no none at all!
Well what else is there in the House of Sugar I hear you ask?
Something new this way comes.........
We will unwrap this exciting new venture in the New Year and today's winner will
be one on the fist crafters, along with our DT, to play with this new sweet surprise.
Oooh! This sounds REALLY interesting, I wonder what on earth it could be??? Hope I'm the lucky one.Judi xxx

Sugar Nellie gave to me...............
TEN super sweet stamps for under my tree.
Not just ONE rubber stamp but TEN!
No one gives away candy like we do, the Scots are generous that way :)
You will have noticed that I have not been posting work by the DT, well that is because we are saving it for the gallery in the new blog, Zoe is working hard putting it all together for the launch in the New Year. Our DT are still making amazing things with sweet stamps and you can visit them all via the links to their own blogs on the right. A big thank you to our DT for their hard work and emails.
The sun is shining here in Scotland today, a slight frost up in the hills but we are heading to Glasgow this weekend. Debbie is studding law at Strathclyde and we are staying with her and the younger two children want to do a bit of practice ski ing at the indoor ski slope at Breahead. Oh what fun, might manage a little trip to Craftology ;)
There will be a few Christmas trees put up around the world this weekend, is your up yet?
We put up our decorations and tree last Saturday with my nearly 5 year old daughter. We listened to some fantastic Christmas classics at the same time. Would love to have some sugar free candy under the tree.Jayne xx

December 1, 2009 10:21 PM
Congratulations Cherry :) please email email@example.com asap with your address so we can post your prize out ready to put under your tree.
As the children get ready to open their advent calenders tomorrow, I thought I would let your know about our 12 days of Christmas give away. Starting on the first, tomorrow, we will be giving away a different prize each day for 12 days.
Now as much as I can't sing ( cant carry a tune in a bucket according to Gayle over on the challenge blog, cheers babe I love you too!) and it's not that we can match the song to our stamps, only the first one makes any sense, but a nice little gift from Sugar Nellie under your tree is better than hearing me sing right?
Pop back tomorrow as hopefully by then I will have worked out how to use Mr Linky, but don't put any bets on it just yet!
Tomorrow also sees Zoe join the House of Sugar as our new Blog Queen. Get ready to join Zoe in the New Year when she takes over the blog and it gets a make over at the same time! I cant wait to see what she does with the help of our brilliant DT,
there are lots of inspiration and ideas in the planning.
Tiets and Marlene have been busy with the new stamps designed by Diane Duda. I am loving the soft muted colours of these, Marlene has created a very distressed vintage effect and Tiets has used the popular powder blue as a winter colour theme. Lovely cards girls.
Working today Mark at Funkykits to bring you a great offer in the New Year, I am sure they will be sending out a news letter again in the holidays for those of you who like to do a little Internet shopping now and then.
Four weeks until Christmas, I guess its time to start the festive shopping and make a few gifts. I hope you are well ahead with yours and your cards are all ready to post .
Keep warm and stay safe.
It's real cold here in Scotland and we are almost Twilighted out, having watched it twice in 24 hrs and still at least once more this week with the girls, I think that I have had my New Moon fix :)
Loved the special effects but poor Edward was tortured to the point on combustion over a simple kiss! Loved the wolfs ;)
Remember that all seven stamps in this collection is up for grabs over on the challenge blog, y9u have to be in it to win it.
For all the Twi hards who are off out tonight at midnight to see New Moon, enjoy the eye candy and don't drool too much unless you have a bib ;)
You could will the complete collection, yes that's SEVEN new stamps, in the next challenge over on The Sugar Bowl blog, stamps are all the sweeter when they are free :)
Warm Birthday Wishes with this cozy little lady.
These sweet stamps make your pens happy :)
Have a good weekend where ever you are.
"We also have a vacancy at the House of Sugar, looking for someone who can work in front of a computer somewhere in the world. Do you know your blogger from you word press? Can you use digi kits to design pages? Have you a hour each day free time to update and chat?"
Let me expand on yesterdays words, I need someone to build and launch a new blog with all singing and dancing extras, keep it updated, interesting and fun. No crafting required as our DT do a wonderful job and your collaboration with them will result in endless sweet project samples and events.
I would like this new web guru to take in hand our forum on SCS and any other forum dedicated to Sugar Nellie. It is a job for anyone in the world who has a computer (dah) and the skills needed to achieve these goals.
Interested? email firstname.lastname@example.org with your own blog address for reference(and any other you have built)
I will try to answer everyone, its a huge problem for me is the huge number of emails I receive, but I will do my best to reply to everyone.
Subject BLOG QUEEN.
This job equates to the equivalent of one hour a day, flexi time, paid monthly.
Carole has made this stunning card with Winter Wishes, I just love colours, so well put together.
I am off to see what you have been making with the new stamps, I am sure there are many of you inking these up already and its great to see what you all do with them.
If you have used one of the resent released stamps, comment with a link as I would love to see your work.
For the girls who all won the Cupcake challenge over on SCS, you candy will be sent out this week.
International customer need to think that if they require sweet stamps for Christmas that there are not too many weeks left to order if you want to make sure that they reach you on time.
Customers in Netherlands can find lots of new stamps in store from Carla at Simpel Scrappen.
keep warm and stay safe
6 New stamps from Mary Hall
6 New stamps from Leanne Ellis
and 5 new stamps from Diane Duda....................WOW that's a lot of sweet rubber.
Were are taking bets in the house of sugar as to which ones will be the most popular and sell out quickest, sometimes we get it wrong as its difficult to gauge the popularity of any stamps.
all new releases are here http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/index.php?cPath=77
The candy man has been busy and all birthday candy has been posted.
DT packs have also been sent and the UK girls should have them by now.

You love EDWARD :) and I am surprised that a few of you don't know what I am on about, your missing out girls, its the love story of this generation. Remember Dirty Dancing & Grease, well Twilight is also a love story which will go down as an all time favourite.
Yes JACOB is cute when his hair is short, he's beefed out a lot but can never be any taller, and I prefer them tall. ;)
Your comments made me giggle too, glad to know I am not the only OCD sufferer out there.
Yesterdays winner is
Definitely Team Edward for me! ;0)Helen x

Helen, please send your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can send
out your prize.. 100% rubber 100% sweet NO calories
And these two are from the lovely Marlene http://mar1ene.wordpress.com/
I would like to wind up our charity fundraiser this month, Funkykits still have a few stamps left and once they are gone that's it, no more. The good news is we most definitely reached our target :) I am delighted with the response, even if I had to trim it down to a manageable size due to other things going on.
All three charity stamps can be found here, with 100% of the £5 going to the cause http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/index.php?cPath=73
I am also very touched by the ladies who emailed me their story and how much it meant for them to support this fundraiser. I am sure there are many wise words which could be used when talking about the challenges, the tears and the strength found to survive any cancer.
For those women who moved me with their story, I will use only two which are very simple, humble and genuine................thank you.
Hi, my name is Dena Concienne and I live in Houston, Texas. I have been married for 22 years to my husband Tom. We have two wonderful kids, Alyssa (19) and Wade (16).
Then one day, I came upon a blog with rubberstamping and that was it, I was addicted all over again. I have been blogging now for almost a year. Sugar Nellie was one of the first companies I noticed when I started blogging that had the CUTEST stamps I had ever seen! I am so happy to be on the Design Team!!! It truly is a wonderful experience.
Hugs from Texas,
