OK, I know I am nuts, no need to point that out. Normaly by now my Christmas cards have been done for months. This year.. nothing is grabbing me, and when I do sit down to get crafty I am alone and all my husband can say.. "yeah, thats nice". So I am turning to the internet. Please leave me a comment about which of these cards you like the best, or how I can change something to make one of them really "pop".
Do it quickly.. I have a goal to have these done this week!

Card #1
Card #2
Card #3
Card #4.
Thank you!!!

Monthly Cards

My mother in law has all but given up on recognising family events and holidays. In effort to help with that I made these monthly folders, gathered all names, addresses and dates, got cards, labeled them and put them in the correct month. Now at the first of each month, I take the cards out, put on a stamp and leave them to be signed.

So it's been a while... We're itching for a swap! Join us for the "All things Love" swap. Just in time for Valentine's day, let's swap the reds and the pinks and the hearts and all the love stuff you can find!
There are a few simple steps, "rules" if you will, to play along:
1. Send an email to withandwithout AT gmail DOT com, indicating you want to join this swap. Include:Your NameYour AddressYour blog address (if you have one) and any clues as to what kind of stuff you like.
2. Send the email no later than January 26. Swap partners will be sent out by the morning of January 27. You MUST mail all your swaps by February 8.

Christmas Projects

Today was sewing day. I sewed/worked with fabric.. for 6 hours. Here are two of the projects I finished.

Arn't they cute? They are kids aprons made from ribbon and hand towels.

I am wrapping them with a cookie cutter and a bag of cookie mix.
This was a beast... I am good at baby blankets.. crib size, but my baby (who is 10) wanted her mom to hand make her a blanket for Christmas.. so how could I say no? It was big, and hard, but made with a lot of love!

Christmas Tea

Monday was our yearly Christmas Tea. This year Laurel and I went with red and green ornaments as our theme. As always it was a wonderful time and yummy food!
