Vintage Christmas

Christmas Flair

I have a very important question for you all:  how and when did it suddenly become 4 December?????  I feel like it was just July and I was down the shore on vacation.  Honestly.  I need a pause button for life.  There are not enough hours in the day for me to get everything done that I want to get done.  I do not count cleaning, because no one actually WANTS to clean.  And if they tell you that, well, they lied to your face.  

Being that it's going to be mid-February next time I blink, I figured it was time to get moving with the rest of the Christmas cards I'm making.  I hope to send them out before Christmas 2015.  HA!

I won't show them all to you, because then you'd be yelling at me for taking up too much download time with all the pictures, so I'll just give a small sampling of what I have going on in my craftroom these days....

Simple, but pretty :-) 


This one's a smidge dark (sorry 'bout that...not sure what the heck happened...) but this one continued with my Vintage Christmas theme that I showed you all the other day.  I used my Cricut "Joys of the Season" cartridge for the ornament.  Love my Cricut.  Love.

I'm sorry, but how freaking C-U-T-E are those penguins????  I had to incorporate them into something, so this is what I came up with.  The one lil' guy is all tangled in lights!!  Hahaha!!  Sooooo cute!!  Oh, man.  Cardmaking is addictive.  I almost regret getting myself sucked into this nonsense.  


I WILL have stitching updates for you soon.  I PROMISE.  I haven't been able to stitch much, since I spent a lot of time on my sister's apron, and I've been trying to meet my goal of making cards for people this year, instead of buying them.

I hope you all are trying to stay calm through this crazy holiday season.  Do something creative each day to help calm your nerves.  

Or, just drink some mulled wine.  That usually does the trick.
