November already,Time for Christmas

Since it is November, I need to start thinking about Christmas. Which means I am thinking in terms of how to make it awesome for the people I give the gifts to. Last year I thought it would be really cool to make handmade tags for each of the presents that I put under the tree. But I, of course ran out of time to do individual tags for each gift.

So I thought I should get a head start and now have five tags for Christmas.

There will be more to follow for sure. Up next will be the Christmas cards.

I also started a scrapbook page, the first in months and months. I am not sure where that will go. The desk is clean enough that I could totally take off working.
I am going to leave you with an old project. I have long had an attachment to old school address cards. Like the type you have with a roledax thing or something similar. I like the address cards because they have the cut out shapes for the holder and they seem more formal. I find them all the time at Goodwill. And I was looking for a way to use them. I decided to make little motivational cards out of them. They could be used as bookmarks or just little things to tack up at work. I love to make these because they take so little time and could be added to a card as an embellishment or to a page in the same way.

And with that I bid you good night.

Thank you so much.
I know that my blog is pretty eclectic, but I just blog what I create or what is inspiring me at the moment.
I am so glad you are enjoying it!
