holiday roundup


Here's a little summary of just some of the Christmas craftiness I've been up to ...

Remember my somewhat tentative decision to make my own cards this year? I found even more inspiration at Paper Pals! This paper ...

Was transformed into these ...

I used double-sided tape to attach the embossed green tree cardstock, and good ole Tacky Glue to attach the grosgrain ribbon. The cardstock was double-sided, with a pretty red snowflake pattern on the inside. They may have arrived a little late, but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!

And to my delight,
these winter buds ...

Are now blooming! This was my first year to try paperwhites. Wow. Gorgeous.


My amaryllis is playing catch-up to the paperwhites ...


And a new crafty project ...


It's been fun to do some needlepoint again. It's been sooo long since I've done any cross-stitch, and I hadn't realized how much I missed it. [cross-stitch was my first, childhood crafting speciality] Plenty of work to go until it turns into this:

Finally, a new holiday decor acquisition:
This cute snowman is a decorated gourd! I stumbled across it in a Salt Lake City airport gift shop, of all places. Adorable, huh? I was so worried I would accidentally crush it on the flight home!
Hope your holidays were merry and bright!
