A very Merry Xmas to all my readers - near and far - to my friends and family who say " I read your blog today" and a special Merry Xmas to those readers who I have not "met" yet! I do get excited when I see I have had visitors to my pages from faraway places across the world.
I have had a great year bringing you a variety of posts - including Creative Memories pages (my old passion), Stampin' Up (my new passion) cards and goodies, and general family "stuff"(a constant passion).
Right now I am looking at my photos which are displayed on the screen beside me and wondering what to share - Xmas photos, cute boxes I made for chocolates, so here are some random images:
First up, a sour cream package - really easy to make - just roll a rectangle of paper into a tube, stick and crimp one end, add a staple and ribbon to hold, then full with chocolates - preferably Lindt balls (one of my faves) then stick and crimp the other end to match - you can make any size and then decorate - I made a bunch last Xmas and they looked gorgeous, and made some more this Xmas too!
Next item to share is a cute gift card using Creative Memories Paper and Stampin' Up! stamps and punches - I even took pics of the inside! Then Santa added $50 notes to the inside (you could fit a gift card instead):
