and the Christmas preparations begin!

Hello and thanks for visiting. This morning I made a list of all the little projects and gifts I need to get done by christmas, and it was a long list. So I figured I better get to it!
I was inspired yesterday at Michaels, they had new christmas stamps in the $1.50 bin, so I stocked up, and now I've got a bajillion christmas projects swirling in my mind!

I just have a few things to share. This is a super simple christmas card, using my new tree stamp from michaels. Stamped it in a few different colors, cut them out, and popped them up on dimensionals, added a sentiment. I think its cute, but simple enough to use for a mass produced christmas card.

I made this little box using one of Lauren's templates, Tucked Away. I love these templates, $5 and you can download them right away, print directly onto your cardstock and they are just so cute. For this one I embossed swirls on the base using my cuttlebug, then used by new $1.50 santa stamp, and a piece of ribbon for a handle.

And a new sewing project. This is for a friend for christmas, and I am going to sew a little something else that matches to go with it. Hopefully should have that up here in the next week or so.
Its a wallet. Its the long skinny kind that I prefer, cause they hold so much more. In this one there are 8 card slots, and the bottom part has two pockets the full length of the wallet. I made a little spot to slide a pen. I think it came out pretty cute, I know she will like it.

Anyways, thats it for now. Got lots to do! Hope you are enjoying your weekend! Thanks for visiting!
