WOYWW 12-9-15

Another week has gone by on our march to the holidays! Does anyone else feel a bit overwhelmed? I sure do!

So here is my desk this morning. I finished the cards for the residents of the facility, for the most part. I also went to a Christmas party/crop on Saturday. Right before leaving I realized that I had forgotten to print the photos for the scrapbook gift I was planning on working on. So instead I worked on some more bookmarks. I still need to punch holes and tie ribbons to them.

And here is my desk yesterday. We have a system set up in our Facebook group where members who are blessed with too much stuff can bless others. This is the contents of a package I received on Monday. Needless to say, I am a happy camper!

Well, my email doesn't seem to be working well right now. I've sent the picture twice and still don't have it. But there are a lot of stamps, a pad of paper, and some precut cards with envelopes. If you see a picture here, it means I finally got it to come through!

Well, that's all for this week. I'm going to try to visit a few more blogs this week than I have been able to recently. Be sure to check out some talented crafters at

WOYWW 12-2-15

Wow, December already! Only 23 more days until Christmas!

I've decided I'm not busy enough, so I'm making some cards and gifts, and hosting two parties. Hopefully I will still be sane after New Year's.

I'm still working on some cards for the residents at the group home. I punched out snowflakes using metallic paper and attached them to blue cardstock. I'm going to stamp a blue nativity scene on a white panel for the front.

After perusing Pinterest for ideas for handmade gifts, I was inspired to make bookmarks for stocking stuffers. I cut up some used Christmas cards, punched out snowflakes on complementary cardstock, and adhered that layer to the card. I will punch a hole in the top and tie a ribbon to them. What do you think of them? I need to make a lot more!

That's all the time I have to write today. I need to get busy with all of my projects! Have a good week and be sure to check out the other crafters at
