Christmas Goodies

I had 60 little ones to make goodies for this Christmas. I decided to make some snowman soup for them....fast and simple! I used my SU! watercolor pencils to color the cute snowman...so much fun and it made the process super quick.
I got this poem off the internet and printed it up on labels for quick assembly! :-)
I was trying to come up with something to give to one of my daughter's teachers when my GF Brenda posted her hot cocoa holders! Such PERFECT timing since I already had lots of hot cocoa for the snowman soup I was making. I completely CASEd hers since they were just too perfect!! Thanks Brenda for the measurements and inspiration!! :-)
I can't believe Christmas is just a few days away...AAAHHH!!! I'm usually busy trying to get things done up until then. I never really get to just relax and enjoy the holiday season with my family. But I'm hoping I budgeted my time better this year and I'll be able to have some down time before the big day so I can t spend some quality time with them.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are able to take some time for yourself and enjoy the holidays with your family as well! :-)

Christmas Gift Tags

Yikes! I am so behind on everything. But at least I'm posting this before Christmas! (Hehe!) Here are some tags I made for Christmas this year. Really quick and easy since one of my non-crafty friends wanted to make them. :-) We used my Two Tags SU! Bigz die and we were able to kick out a whole bunch of these in no time!

Quick Christmas Gifts

I am getting together with some of my high school friends for our annual Christmas party today. It's amazing that we are still holding strong to our tradition some 20 years after we all graduated. Although our group size has gotten smaller with people moving away and such, our overall size has grown with the many blessings that we have created. It's nice when we get together and are able to catch up like old times and now watch all of our children play together.

Anyways these are what I made for my girlfirends this year...quick little notebooks that I made from file folders. I made 8 of these in no time using the tutorials on SCS and Craft Project Centrals. I used my Cricut to cut out the letters and Hello Kitty's. They're cut from vinyl which made adhering them to the notebooks quick and easy. I must say that I love working with vinyl!

I hope you are having a fun weekend! Thank you for stopping by!
