Busily getting ready for Christmas

I’m afraid I haven’t had time to sit down and create something “new to you” yet this week.  I’ve been very busy getting ready for Christmas.  Lest you think I’m slacking off . . .

Rubber Stamped Christmas CardsHere’s about half of the Christmas cards we’re giving out this year.  I’m so thankful we can hand deliver a large majority of these!  I have made at least 100 I think . . .  Making them is great,  it’s writing in all of them and addressing them that is the dreaded job!

Handmade Angel OrnamentsI thought it would be nice if Micah had a little something for each of the kids in his class so I made these Angel Ornaments for each of them.

Handmade Candy OrnamentsThen of course I decided to make something for each of the teachers in the school . . .  Boy am I glad it’s a relatively small Christian school!

I have to tell you what my four year old said this morning after I took this picture of the ornaments.  “Mommy, candy isn’t ornaments.”  When I said it’s candy inside ornaments he replied, ” candy doesn’t go in ornaments.”  Can you tell what his mind was focused on?  Hopefully the teachers will be able to get past that and enjoy it!

I hope you’ll be able to join us for the Stampin’ Christmas party tomorrow!  If so, you’ll get to make one of those Angel Ornaments yourself!  Have a wonderful day!


  1. You don’t have to write in ours, Beck! 😉

  2. …for that matter, you don’t even have to address it–I can get it from you on Monday! 😉

  3. I wish there was a way we can all share our ideas for making cards specially Christmas cards in order to come up with new ideas and or help others with ideas 🙂
    You are very talented and I enjoyed the gimpse at your Christams cards would like to see them in more detail to get ideas my self and I would not mind sharing the ones I make too 🙂
