Well It's that time of the year when we all start running around like chickens with our heads cut off. I've seen that, and yes, that is exactly what I look like. Arms flapping and all :)
Christmas is by far my favorite time of the year, but its also the most stressful for me. Getting gifts, school and church plays, projects to be made, and goodies to be baked. If we are not careful, it can really take the joy out of the holiday season. So, I decided that when I make cards, goodies, anything for that matter, that I would play Christmas music. Grab my son and dance around, sing the 12 days of Christmas with my daughter. It makes a huge difference in my life, when I take a few min between projects to really enjoy this time of year. Not to mention give some smooches underneath the mistletoe:)
I give my MIL (mother-in-law) all of the cards I make to send to her mother (OMA) in California. She loves them so much, that this year, I decided to make her box sets that she can send out. I made her a box set for Christmas, Birthdays, and Everyday. I made two of each Christmas cards using Jolly Holidays, DCWV Christmas Combo Stack, Stickles, and various ribbon from Michaels. For the tags, I used Lori's Garden and Kates Kitchen. All Sentiments are from Scrappy Moms Stamps Winter Wishes stamp set.
This is by far the best bow I have ever made :)
I decided to make one for my MIL as well. I threw on a candy cane when I was finished.
I hope you all take the time to enjoy this Holiday Season!
