Thursdays!

Well this week worked out just lovely for me, with Wednesday being the holiday and Thursday my day off, I got a full weekend in the middle of the week! And back to work tomorrow then another weekend! I am just loving my thursdays off...dont know how I will manage going back to a 5 day work week....oh well, wont think about that now!
Well I've been busy working on christmas christmas christmas. I wanted a simple wreath for our apartment door, but nothing too fancy so if someone steals it I wont be devastated. I came up with this, using some green ribbons, red jingle bells, and a few pine cones all from dollarama. The most expensive thing on it is the ribbon for the bow. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. The colors dont photograph very well, but it looks okay!













I wanted to make something coordinating with the wallet I made the other day, so I made this up using the scraps. The notebook is just a smidge too big for it, but I think its cute. Together I think it is a cute set.



















This week was one of my favorite people's birthdays. I made her a super simple little gift, but I think it came out pretty cute. I got this tile from Hallmark, and it just reminded me of her because she is such a fun aunt! When I bought it, they gave me a little halmark pocket calender. I thought it would be perfect to put a new cover on it and make it a beautiful little calendar. To wrap up the tile, I embossed a brown paper bag, and just sewed three edges, leaving the bag open at the top. Decorated and tied shut.








Well thats it for me today. When my sister gets home from classes today we are going out shopping, should be one of our last big christmas shops of the season, and I am on the lookout for some new fabrics for some projects. It should be a fun afternoon! Now I am trying to figure out a complicated pattern to see how much material I NEED....wish me luck!

  1. HA HA HA... your blog made me smile today! One of your favourite people!- yipee!! I love my tile, and the packaging is beautiful - but you didn't show a picture of the card you made. I haven't even started shopping for Christmas. I should start soon I guess. I was glad to get your comment on my blog. I had been wanting to start a blog for a while, and finally got around to it with my month off work.... we will see if I can keep it up. You (and Savannah and Dana) are the only ones I have told about. Have a good day at work and then a good weekend.
