0 Don't Get Your Tinsel In A Tangle!

Still puttering away on Christmas Gifts.  I always try to make as many as I can, mostly because it's very difficult for me to think of things to give and I think hand made are more special.   I've been enjoying doing machine embroidery and sewing of late.





This pillow has an embroidered wrap around it, suitable for Christmas, and then the recipient can remove the wrap and the underneath embroidery is suitable for year round... they are chicken owners; have had chickens for as long as I've known them - 25+ years.  They refer to them as 'the girls'.



Thanks for looking and I hope all is well in your world and your holiday preparations are going smoothly.

1 Merry Christmas card

 This is probably the 'simplest' in appearance card I've made.  It's gold metallic thread stitching the words Merry Christmas, embellished with paper holly leaves and dimensional paint berries.


This is my typical 6 x 6 card, just without all the layers.  


The gold metallic thread is quite shiny and pretty but not for the faint of heart to stitch with!  It can be difficult to work with because it is stiff and not soft like you think of thread to be.


I did attach a plain piece of cardstock over the back of the stitching on the inside of the card.



Thanks for looking and I hope all is well in your world.  Let me know if there's an interest in purchasing this.  I'm not sure if I'll get it listed to Etsy or not.

1 You better watch out.... Santa's watching....


Wow!! Holidays are upon us!  Every year just seems to fly by.  I have been busy with work, volunteering and family, but I have also been able to fit in some creative time for me.   Most recently I've made some Christmas Ornaments.  Just love watching these come together.....


I love the Santa Cam and Elf Cam ornaments, but I think these tag and mitten ones are really pretty, too.   I have these and the cams on my etsy store if you are interested.  Feel free to contact me if you are interested in something like these.


For decades I've been making personalized ornaments for family and friends.  This year, since the kids are all crazy about emojis, I went with some emoji ornaments. 





Thanks for looking and I hope all is well in your world.

0 Middle of May?

Wow, middle of May already!!  Hope those that it applies to had a great Mother's Day! I'm looking forward to the Summer, but mostly because I'm really ready to go visit family in Maine!

I've been busy with life, but have made a couple of cards, too.

0 An owl on a branch

Another older stamp, this one by Gina K . 


 Wonder if that's too much pink to be a masculine card?

0 Gift Tags with pockets

I've spent the last 3 weeks working on opening an Etsy Shop.  It was a little time consuming, but once I got enough things ready to list, it's all up and running.   I want to try to have a variety of things and am slowly working on that.  I've got plenty of ideas, just not a lot of time.

Here I've made some hang tags with pockets to insert a note in.  The note card pulls out from the side.



 The little note card (2 1/4 x 2 1/4) has a tab on the top and inserts in the side of the gift tag.






Thanks for looking today and I hope all is well in your world!
