Just a short post

Mostly pictures - I never stopped long enough yesterday to even post. I cut. I glued. I glittered. I boxed. I bagged. I wrapped. I tired.

I found a couple of years worth of old Christmas cards when I was digging out gift wrap so I used those to make Christmas bags. Some of them had matching images on the back, so I used those for matching tags. The other tags are made from scraps of my gift wrap paper. The fabric the ornaments are pictured on is what I used for the backs. I'm too tired or lazy to turn them over and take another picture! I'm only keeping the one on the left with the felt backing for myself - I'm unhappy with how the felt backing turned out. I couldn't see my line and didn't cut it out worth a crap so I'm keeping it for myself.

Now, I'm gonna go make a pie. Took two pecan pies to the Christmas party Thursday night and came home with not even a slice. Timothy wasn't happy (although he was invited to go with us!) anyway - I promised him I would make him a pie today. As soon as I get that in the oven I'm going to dig out the old broom and vac and see if I can get all this glitter, paper, thread and assorted other 'stuff' up off the floors.

Off to bake!

Your wrappings and tags look wonderful, so inviting. I need to get busy and start wrapping gift. You've inspired me to get going.
