Merry Christmas Eve! I hope you’re all snuggled in your warm homes and enjoying the company of those you hold dear.

Speaking of dear, not only is today Christmas Eve, but it’s also the birthday of our very own Teri Anderson! (Yep, we’ve claimed her!) I was fortunate enough to write Teri’s 2010 birthday post, and consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to make her smile squirm once more!

8285117879 6244f22b91 Teri is So Very…Part III have a theory that very special people are born during this time of year. There just seems to be an overabundance of love, charity, and humility in the air. And all of these characteristics perfectly sum up our Teri. She’s one of the dearest people I know, yet along with that generous heart comes a can-do attitude, a wicked sense of humor, and a talent that knows no bounds.

She once described her style as this: “Paper crafting for the busy gal or guy. I tend to make projects that do not take a lot of time. My style is simple yet a little bit funky with a few flecks of technique on top. I stray once in awhile, but I am generally happiest with my simplest projects.”

I don’t know if I would call any of Teri’s projects simple (especially if they involve stamping with condensed milk or bleach!), but here’s a few of my recent favorites:
