Santa's Workshop

Next week is the last week of school before Christmas break and I am working like crazy to get all the gifts made and packaged in time. I hope to do my baking tomorrow night and then the final assembly should be pretty easy! My sweet Bailey has taken a definite interest in making beaded earrings recently and she's made so many beautiful pairs that she can't wait to give as gifts!! So, as of right now, we'll be giving her teachers and school staff a monogrammed stamped coaster, a pair of earrings, and some yummy treats. Last year, Bailey wore a Santa hat when we delivered our gifts and she was a big hit, so we can't wait to do that this year. I just love making those memories! Have a wonderful day!!

Elf Shoes

I am so excited to have something to post for you today!! I found the inspiration for this adorable card on Marie Shaughnessy's wonderful blog, Stamping Inspiration. I'm so glad she included instructions for making the elf shoes, because I tried to wing it and it didn't work!! I had a piece of Christmas striped paper so the elf's socks were super-easy to make. Be sure to ink the crease that separates the shoes - you need that definition. Thanks for stopping by today!
