Well . . . here it is Saturday, December 27, 2008, and I'm still making Christmas presents . . . my family and friends had liked the beading I had done, soooooooooo . . . they told me what they liked and I'm making more jewelry for them . . . here are some of the samples . . .
They also liked my two first beading projects that were featured in my blog on October 26, 2008 . . .
We have the sweetest neighbors . . . when we moved here 5 years ago . . . we found little packages on our doorstep during the holidays . . . homemade candy, cookies, etc. . . all from our new neighbors!!! What a warm feeling I feel in my heart when I find the goodies on our doorstep or a child delivering a package from the neighbors!!!!! I decided to reciprocate by making a package of 4 handmade greeting cards wrapped in cellophane bags and a bow . . . here are a few from this year . . .
This one is stamped on K & Company Mira Collection scrapbook paper . . . the stamp is the Michelle Ward Clear Stamp set from Stampington . . .
The second one is also from the K & Company Mira Collection . . . the stamp is from Christine Adolph's line from Stampington . . .
The third one is another K & Company Mira Collection with a Christine Adolph stamp from Stampington . . .
The fourth one is on K & Company Urban Rhapsody Sugar Rush Flat with another Christine Adolph image from Stampington . . . I hope my neighbors like their gifts!!!!!!
