Halloween has come and gone .. the clocks have been turned back ..I swear there was a time warp somewhere in there ! It's so hard to believe that it is November already .. only 12 more school days till the Thanksgiving Holiday break . The malls have already begun decorating for the holidays and Santa's arrival . I remember when they used to wait until after Thanksgiving to put up his little wonderland where the kids can sit on his lap and have their picture taken. We were at the mall this weekend and Santa himself wasn't there but his wonderland was ! Decorating won't be happening here until after Thanksgiving - I usually do it that weekend after the excitement of Black Friday shopping ... yes .. I am one of those people amongst the crowds seeking out good deals and trying to get much of my shopping done. It's a fun tradition that we have been doing since Jess was a baby .. but we don't get too crazy.. I do sleep in till 10:00 am :)
So, I finally had some time to create some holiday goodies this weekend . I wanted to get a head start on adding things to my etsy shoppe so these items will be uploaded sometime tonight !
First I made these fun little block photo holders ... I plan on making all sorts of designs with these for those who want to use them during the rest of the year and not just during the holidays .
These photos are in various stages of creating them ..
And here they are all ready to go !
I also made a set of tags with some new papers and stamps that I bought a little while ago . I adhered patterned paper to manila tags to make them more sturdy ..
I need to work on more pages for the Sketchbook Project so I will be doing that the rest of the week. I would love to have it finished before the weekend so I can do some other fun Christmas projects . Here is a peek at the materials I will be using ..
