My Little Black Dress For Less!


This holiday season I figured I couldn't go wrong with a black dress.. Black seems to be the new Red and Green this Holiday Season.


The dress from Wet Seal, I bought this a few months back for only $10!

The shoes I got from our local Navy Exchange on the clearance rack for $12

Then of course I needed to add a little glam, so I got my nails done at our local
Wal-Mart's nail salon for $20.00

$10 dress from Wet Seal
$12 shoes from the Exchange
$20 Nails done at Wal-Mart
____
$42 total spent on my holiday dress!
Not bad huh? Its easy to do just look for items before the holiday and you too can be in style for that special Holiday party or get together!

As for jewelry I haven't decided.. I know I have my diamond earrings from Mother's Day but I need to find earrings and a nice necklace!

I'll show a picture of my nails tonight, cause that's when I'm getting them done!

She handcrafts, all by hand the most beautiful and elegant crosses I've ever seen and anything is customizable! I got the opportunity to review the Baby Cross which can also be customized to add a picture of your little darling in the center of it.

Not only does she handcraft jeweled/seashelled crosses she is also starting a wood collection.

The opportunities are endless and this will definately be a great decorative addition to your home, something as sweet and charming as a custom made cross!

Crosses by Claudia - The Blog

Why'd you start your business?

The Lord led me to this. I have always been artistic. Writing poetry, drawing, writing stories as a child, making pillows, purses, painting, all things creative. I had my three daughters, and spent most of my time raising them and being involved in what ever they were involved in.

My girls are now grown and I am single again. I recently lost my job due to the home industry, and need something to do. To save my sanity I turned once again to my creative side. I am using my love of the cross, and my love of creating beautiful things. Now if I can just start making some money doing this it will be perfect!!

Your favorite part of the holiday?

100% being with my family. I come from a large Catholic family of 44 members. I have 5 sisters! Christmas Eve, my entire life, has been the highlight of each year. We have so much fun, and all love each other so much. We are also fortunate to still have both my parents, so each year becomes more precious.

Anything extra you'd like to add? * I am so glad this election is over!!!!

Discount * Free shipping and 20% off until January 15th!
(Mention when ordering you were referred by Lovin' the Holiday Season for the discounts to apply!)

Stocking Stuffer/Giveaway: Il Divo



Thanks to One2One Network & Il Divo for this opportunity!

My thoughts:

Il Divo's "The Promise" I found to be the most soothing and uplifting music for my ears! I loved "The Power of Love" and "Hallelujah" even though most of the songs on "The Promise" are in Spanish it was still very beautiful to listen to. On the deluxe edition of "The Promise" you can pop the cd into your DVD player for three special features! If your a fan of any kind of opera you will love this very talented operatic quartet!

The Christmas Collection by Il Divo is a collection of the most popular Christmas songs all sung in perfect harmony, simply beautiful and moving! My favorites were "O Holy Night", "White Christmas" and "Silent Night". Their beautiful vocals will instantly put you in a joyful mood this Holiday Season!

Want it now?
Check out Il Divo at Amazon.com, where they have more pictures and even sample video clips!

From Il Divo:
Introducing Il Divo, the smooth and silky operatic quartet, brought together by pop guru (and American Idol creator) Simon Cowell in 2004!

Following an extensive worldwide audition process culminating in the union of the four talented singers from different countries and musical disciplines, who discovered their musical purpose in the union of Il Divo, the virtuoso blending of operatic technique with romantic and popular song took the world by storm.

With sales of over 22 million, Il Divo, Ancora and Siempre scored 36 No. 1 chart positions across 26 countries in just their first three albums!

Two sold out world tours have seen Il Divo performing to over 1.5 million people in thirty countries. They appeared at the opening and closing ceremonies of the FIFA 2006 World Cup, singing the official theme song with superstar Toni Braxton. They were also special guests of icon Barbara Streisand on her 2006 tour of North America.





What you can WIN:
Il Divo's The Promise Deluxe Edition (CD/DVD) and Il Divo: The Christmas Collection ($41.99 value). Wouldn't these be great for that special someone in their stocking this Holiday?
