Busy Busy

I've been working on a few projects this past week that I am getting really excited about.

1-I will be posting the Twelve Days of Christmas Cards starting December 1st. I have never made a lot of Christmas or holiday cards, b/c I usually send out way too many where I don't want to make them all, by the time I get the fam pics done, the Christmas letter done, etc. And I am not one to love reproducing cards in bulk. It's just not fun that way. But for some reason, I have wanted to make SOME (not all) this year, so...the other night, I thought of this idea and it has already been fun working on them and has gotten my creative juices flowing and more of my mojo back. (How's that for a run-on sentence?) I definitely like some better than others and am excited to see which are your favorites. Again, I will start posting one a day starting on December 1st.

2-Another project that I have been working on is a Christmas gift for someone. It is a box full of Family Home Evening lesson ideas-meant to be done quick and easy and last minute if needed. In our church, we are encouraged to hold Family Home Evening once a week with our families. It is a night set aside where we as family members spend time together learning and playing. Most of the time a gospel message is shared, along with an activity and dessert. (To learn more about it, you can go here.) So, I thought it would be fun to make something for this family along these lines. Of course, I am making one for our family as well and my kids are anxious to try it out already, starting tomorrow. :) So far, I have the contents of the box mostly completed (two more items to still get...), but still need to decorate the box. I'll be posting it later this week. (And I am just banking on the fact that this person who the gift is for does not check my blog.) :)

3-I also am about to start another project (tomorrow) that I will share later this week as well. It is also a Christmas gift for another. I'll tell you more about that one when I post it.

In the meantime, Happy Turkey week!!!

I know have written this pretty much every time I comment, but you are UH-MAY-ZING! I love looking at your projects. I have a bag of stamps that I just don't know how to use to make anything like yours. Why don't you come to NC before your baby is born for a private tutorial????
