Christmas is over and it is almost January...just one more day and it will be time to say hello to winter.....unless you live on the east coast of Virginia. We are having what I consider to be unusually warm weather for this time of year....the temperature has been alternating between the 50’s and the 60’s… Continue reading All the Glitters….
We are now officially in the Twelve Days of Christmas which begins December 25th, Christmas Day and ends on January 6th - Three Kings Day. so I’m a little late with my Partridge in a Pear Tree.

“Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.” And today is Christmas Eve, so tonight before I go to bed, I’ll be stuffing those stockings full… Continue reading Stocking Stuffers
Taking a break from the Christmas madness to bring you some beautiful birds. They kind of happened by accident. A class to make Christmas gift bags and treat holders was cancelled when life got in the way and several people weren’t able to come. It left just one....my friend Karen. She loves birds.

The little elves are cut directly from the… Continue reading Merry Little Elves

Now I’m more into multitasking with the cards I am making. December is the time… Continue reading Two in One – Card & Gift Card Holder
When I first saw the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series paper with the whimsical elves and Santa & Mrs. Claus....I wasn’t really enamored. I don’t have small children anymore...my two daughters are long past the wonder of Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause and his elves. But I purchased it anyway because it was the only “fun” looking… Continue reading Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!
