Every year I make calenders for my children and I finally finished last night just in time for Christmas. It's lots of work but I do enjoy seeing the family all year long. It's wonderful to see the changes in the grandchildren every year and these pages can be put into a album when the year is over. I use almost all stampin'up products on these...
I got the tree up today, it looks pretty good. I am cooking Christmas dinner this year hope the weather is good that weekend right now we have very little snow. I do have some baking to do haven't wrapped any gifts yet and do have a parcel to mail to the oldest son and his family. I also do calenders for each of the kids and haven't finished them yet either lots of things to do. Stampin'UP! used to sell the 81/2 by 11 calenders now I have to make my own. The bind it all comes in handy for that. Hope most of you are more organized than me this year. Usually I am on top of things but got behind this year.
I work part time in catering, we had a banquet the other night. The center piece for the table was a very pretty cake. with lots of chocolate... the dessert plates were tied up with a bow. One of the highlights was a snack table. Lots of treats here and set up very nice too. I am sure everyone enjoyed the evening.
Hello well here we are into the countdown for Christmas.. I did finish the stocking I have been working on. With many finger pricks, and straining to to thread the needles its done. Now all the grandchildren have homemade stockings. Hope Alexis enjoys hers as the years go by. Was in the city shopping a few days ago and I could of bought a stocking for a lot less and saved my fingers. BUT it just wouldn't be the same as one of these with all the sequins...made by grandma
Made these up for craft sales using our Cellophane bags (124134) also found in the Holiday mini. Hope every one is getting in gear for all the holiday rush. Here with little to no snow it is kind of hard to do maybe once the calender changes to December. I made stocking for my children and grandchildren so with the arrival of Alexis that is what I have been doing the last few days so she will have one hanging as well. Will post when it is done.
This card is nice and bright it uses Festive and Fun from the Holiday mini (123742). You only have till the end of December to order from this Mini so if there was something you still want or need please contact me. December 5th will guarantee before Christmas delivery..
Punches are what made this card what it is... and it is easy to do..
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and family.. Don't eat to much Turkey.... We really do have many things to be thankful for and say a prayer for those serving over seas today...who can't be with there families.
Here are a few ladies making cards at my Christmas stamp a stack classes. I held four this year and am all stamped out... The ladies said they all had a great time and liked the cards they did.. I will be doing a all occasion class late Jan or Feb. Let me know if your interested.
Tomorrow is probably my last craft sale of the season so made up a few more bags of candy. These jelly beans are in the cellophane bags that are in the holiday mini (124134). I used the Delightful Decorations set (116517) and the ornament punch ((119847) to make the toppers.
I loved this set Beautiful Season (122680) when I first got the new Idea book and catalog back in July. This is done with very vannilla and gold embossing. Very simple yet elegant... It also uses satin ribbon (117291) and the Stripes (123128) embossing folder.
One more of my stamp a stack Christmas cards. The tree is made with the Petite pennants Builder Punch (122361) you can use either three or four punched out pieces to make the tree. I also used the Petals a Plenty embossing folder (116824) these are both found in the main catalog.
Today is Remembrance day both in Canada and the USA. Our Canadian Flag flies in the back yard and in the front yard the US Flag. I attended many a service as my father was a vet and my son and daughter both were cadets for years.
Yesterday was quite nice and you can see we have no snow yet, but my husband brought out the snowmen and started to do the house for the holidays. So much easier when it's not so cold..
Have a great day and remember our soldier here and a far, with out them we would not be us!!!
Welcome Christmas (118736) found on page 5 of the main catalog. I have used Navy and white as well a wee bit of brushed gold paper. The embossing is done in Pewter (124114) found in the holiday mini, also used the Houndstooth folder (123134) and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch (119275). This is one card that the ladies doing stamp stack are making.
For the last two days I have been st craft sales. Here I am setting up. I must say that the two days were very good for sales. I usually attend these and actually count it as my advertising dollars, and I actually made money...thanks to the many who visited my table.
This isn't a card but made from a 4?4 piece of wood. My mother gave this to me in 2001 one of the last things she gave me. So it has a special place to sit during October. Happy and Safe Halloween everyone.
I have started doing my Stamp a Stacks for Christmas cards. This is one of the cards. Using Tags Till Christmas (120847) and Word Play (120308) both are foud in the main Catalog. Sure hope the ladies like my choices...
Korina had a workshop at my home a few days ago and look what her guests got treated too. Wow she made some awesome treats. We all had a great time.
