image


Hello!

How are you? over here is busy busy busy , I've earned myself a nice rest and I plan to lay in the couch as soon as I mail my pending letters tomorrow.

You may noticed my little gingerbread men above! that's because I made some of them to send to the Second Annual Holiday Ornament Swap hosted by the lovely Freshly Blended Blog, I packed them in nice brown paper bags I embellish with the papers I showed you the other day

image


Just look at them :), they were playing around my mail, so cute!, You can see more ornaments on the 2007 Holiday Ornament Swap flickr group

image

We also made a bunch of these crocheted ornaments, love the noise of the bell and they look wonderful on the tree :), These are not for the - 2007 Holiday Ornament Swap- I sent some to my friends along with their Christmas card.

image

As you can see here, they are very helpful :), they helped me pack and check names,addresses and correct labels.

I made 26 bags!! I only needed 9 but I got exited with the gorgeous paper and I had to make more to wrap my holiday care packages and gifts.

I printed some stickers with the logo of the swap to decorate the outside of the parcel , I love making these I plan to do a bunch of these bags for spring with a new collection of papers.

If you want to see more photos of these goodies, I uploaded more at My Flickr

Well I have to go now, today is my brother's Birthday and he wants to catch some movies, something tells me I will be eating a lot of junk good today ^_^ Yay!

Enjoy your day!!

:: Almost Done ::

I'm feeling sleepy today, must be because I've been running like crazy trying to get everything ready for Christmas, I made some final purchases online yesterday and had to paid extra for shipping $_$, so they can be on time, fingers crossed !

Posting Yesterday was impossible, my internet was acting weird until this morning so uploading images was a pain.
But enough of that, :) I wanted to show you what I did over the weekend.

image

I played with these lovely papers :), cutting,wrapping,folding and even sewing them to pack the ornaments I sent,these beauties are form the Martha Stewart Crafts line, Aren't they cute?

image

I prepared this Birthday-Christmas present for a very CRAFTY girl :) I didn't had the chance to send her something for her Birthday so I wanted to make it double this time, no, I'm not telling who because it's a surprise! I hope she gets it soon.

And these two cute FQ's are flying all the way to CANADA, along with a Christmas Card, another crafty surprise for a nice patient girl.

I did a lot of packing and these Holiday Deco-Tapes helped me to decorate envelopes and parcels, Love the Bells and the Holiday Greetings ^_^

image

How much did I pack? well see for yourself, I ship them out last Friday and clumsy me forgot to add some small letters and parcels I had in my outbox drawer X_X, so I need to make another trip to the post office.

I am almost done with all my Holiday errands, I only need to worry about Christmas Dinner and sending the last batch of snail mail :) Can't wait to stay home and relax a bit.

Well I hope you have a calm nice day and I'll show you the ornaments I sent on those brown paper bags on my next post

Take Care!

.: Christmas Inspired :.

Happy Monday!

I hope you had fun and had some time to make that cute Santa I showed you. My weekend was nice because we finally got your X-mas tree and some colorful ornaments we found at Target, I also got me lots of Fabrics, Ribbons, Yarns and Pretty Paper for my Christmas Crafts and Gifts.

I plan to ship almost all of my International Parcels on Wednesday, so I must hurry to get it all done on time.

I found this cute gingerbread house fabric :), you know I'm obsessed with gingerbread men and cookies, the rest of the fabrics in the photo are from my Holiday Stash :), I took them form the storage bin, refold them and now they're displayed in my craft table.

image

I also found these ones! they're so soft, love their texture and colors, I have a project planned for these, can't wait to get started.

Maybe you've seen these ones already, if not here are the - Holiday Knits - stamps, I love this set specially the deer and the bear, I have to pick up another booklet on my next trip to the post office , because I know these are going to end up on my International packs.
