Pictures and more!

Happy Christmas!!! DH and I have been playing "Chrismukkuh" this week! How fun! Not because one of us is Jewish and the other is Christian, just because we can... and because we are leaving tonight to visit our family ~ and why take our presents with us unopened?!?! LOL So, we have been giving each other a little something almost every day this week. I totally got spoiled, of course. :) And poor DH has to wait for the continuation of "Chrismukkuh" until we get back from Montana because a couple of his presents haven't gotten here yet. :(

Anyway... "Santa" did let me get a Cricut. The "expressions" one. I can't take it out of the box until we get back from our trip because all I'll want to do is play. So, it is sitting in front of the tree. DH did surprise me with a new camera though! Wow!!!! A Nikon D40. It is soo snazzy!!! A neighbor friend came over and gave me a brief lesson last night on how to use it. It takes the nicest photos! See!!!! DH took this one - me without glasses and a new haircut.

Also, here is a photo of the paper pieced Santa that I made. And one of the Christmas cards that I made for my Christmas card Stamp-a-stack. Next month we are going to have Birthday card stamp-a-stack, and make a perpetual calendar!

And I have been making topiary for Christmas presents. These are pretty fun ~ and easy. Great way to use up some of the millions of Prima flowers that I have!!! This one still needs some filling in ~ almost done! Good thing that I am seeing these girlfriends after Christmas!!!

The last picture is of some Christmas ornaments that I made for a little class. They are just like the ones that Basic Grey had a couple years ago with the Blitzen paper pack. Remember?! I thought that they were a lot of fun ~ but kind of frustrating. I taught 6 ladies how to make them and then 5 minutes later couldn't get mine to go together! LOL

Hope that you are getting your last holiday shopping done! We are going to finish up shopping for the kids and my nieces tomorrow when we get off the plane. Talk about last minute!!! I did get a couple things that we are taking back. I couldn't go all crazy shopping here because we are taking a cooler of halibut back with us and bringing back some antelope or something like that. I don't know... I don't eat it!

Merry Christmas!

Love your paper pieced Santa! Looks like a lot of work but worth the results.
