Christmas crafts...I love this time of year!

Wow. I can't believe the last time I posted was November 27th. It has been a crazy few weeks. If you read my personal blog, you know what I'm talking about. If not, I'll fill you in! We moved the weekend after Thanksgiving. In fact, we didn't find out for sure until the Saturday of that weekend that we would be moving the next day! So, we've been getting settled into the new town and apartment. And now that things are nearing normalcy, I actually had some time to work on some artsy stuff! I love when I get to create...it's such a release.

So both of these projects are for my husband's assistant manager for Christmas. We are going to put some candy and stuff in the take out box for her, and I painted the little Santa ornament. About the ornament...I usually am HORRIBLE at painting things with any detail to it. But this one turned out really nice! (My mom says it is because I have more time and patience now...she's right!) I didn't paint the face, that comes prepainted but I did the rest!


I love this paper! It is from K&Company by Brenda Walton...so retro looking and adorable!
