24 Days of Christmas!

Our Artful Inker's team is doing a 24 days of Christmas swap. We each made 24 items and swapped with one another so that on each day in December we get to open a different homemade gift! How sweet is that!

Well today is day 1 and look what I got from Samantha!!! I just love the snowman, he's so darn cute and then inside was this beautiful Christmas star ornament. You can bet it will be hanging on my tree when I decorate it this weekend! Thanks so much Samantha.

Stop by again tomorrow for day 2's surprise!

What Have I Been Busy Doing????

Long time since I posted! I have been working on the Artful Inker's Christmas swaps. I made 24 of these and they don't look like much on the outside but the inside is quite nice if I do say so myself!!! It's taken a few weeks to finish them all but I'm pleased with the end result. Our dinner and exchange is this Thursday and I am looking forward to it!

Now that these are finished I can proceed with making my Christmas cards so stay tuned for more posts soon!

Sorry for the lousy picture but we are off to Toronto to do some shopping and see "Rock of Ages" so I am rushing here!

Happy Stamping,

My New Craft Room

As promised, here are some pictures of my new craft room! I love it! Thanks to DH for all his help!

I still have some organizing to do - especially my paper but I will get to that after Christmas because I have so many projects on the go, I need to spend my time crafting right now!

Missing in Action!

Hello Stampers!

I have spent the past week moving my craft room from the loft to our basement! 3 flights of stairs - argh! However, it was worth it because I have so much more room and I have a TV and a fireplace to boot! I will post pictures tomorrow!

Here is a Christmas card I made for a recent swap. The flower is made using a 7" piece of ribbon and gathering it with a needle and thread and tying it together - simple! I love this SU! snowflake embossing folder - it's so pretty!

Recipe: All supplies SU! Poppy Parade CS, Whisper White CS, pearls, snowflake embossing folder, scallop trim border punch, decorative strip - northern frost, scallop punch and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes!
