The second picture is some kraft boxes from Stampin' Up! that I decorated and filled with little Christmas gifts for my special "crafty" friends and the third picture is us having a wonderful Christmas lunch together, we had a great day sharing and giving each other our handmade creations and gifts, and of course lots of laughs!
Well Christmas is now over for another year and I'm looking forward to another year of creativity and fun! I will say as much as I love "Christmas crafts" I'm looking forward to creating new projects without "red,green and bling" for a while, well until a bit later in 2014 that is!.......cheers for now Sue :)

Well i got a good early start this year with making my Christmas cards but as usual for some reason I end up rushing them out a week before Ho Ho!! Happens every year! I think perhaps I kid myself with an early start that I'm ahead on time but as soon as December 1 clicks over "time" seems to change to "warp speed"...lol.
Anyhow they are all finished and in the post! Still have some projects to finish this week but am feeling very relieved my christmas "happy mail" is on it's way! Thanks for looking.........Sue :)

Well the 1st of December is here so the "silly season" has definitely begun! I saw a tutorial for this "easy as" wreath on Tami White's blog (US demo) and decided to make one for myself. All you need is a 12" foam wreath ring ( think it was about $5 from spotlight) a box of pins, approx. 8 sheets of patterned designer series papers (12" x 12") cut into 1/2" strips, a bone folder and a little patience! It doesn't take that long to make really, oh and a thimble is good idea so you don't get sore fingers from pushing the pins in! I finished it off with a simple silver glitter cardstock bow which I cut with the very versatile Bow Die from the Stampin' Up! seasonal catty which as you can see from my projects lately that I use it a lot! Well back to more projects on my "to do before Christmas List".........thanks for looking......Sue :)
