~ Happy New Year! ~

Hubby's taking us to New York City tomorrow - wahoo! We'll be coming back before the New Year craziness. I'm not a crazy New Year kind of gal. But I'm looking forward to getting some holiday cheer, and some new inspiration for 2010.
Happy New Year!

Today I decided to treat myself to a trip out to one of my favorite antique malls. Though it's an hour away, it never fails to disappoint! What treasures I found...
Definitely the theme for the day was vintage pillow cases...gorgeous condition.
I got several embroidered, crocketed, and just plain scalloped.

But my favorite Christmas goodie of all...
I found a new site where I can order colored masking tapes!

This Japanese company really has the knack for beautiful packaging.
A treat for the eye!
(Let me know if you'd like the address.
I'm also thinking of maybe selling them through my blog or etsy shop! Hmmm...)

Hmmm...where do I start?!

~Something for the person who has everything...~

I was racking my brain to think of an appropriate hostess goft for my cousin...a person who falls under the catagory of one who has everything. When I found a picture of her parents at Christmas exactly 50 years ago, I knew I had struck on a good idea! I filled one of the jars (see previous post) with cookies, and I was good to go!

Day Two!

Another snow day afforded me some glorious extra crafting time!
Merry Christmas to...me!
I think these sticker sets I made could be cute for sale at my friends shop.
What do you think? I packaged them in small vellum ATC envelopes.
Opinions, please!

A cookie jar I made for a friend...

This one is for a family member, and has a family photo attached.

I attached a 3D flower to the little girls hands. So sweet!
Have a wonderful holiday!

Don't Be Jealous...

Amidst all the Christmas craziness, I was blessed to get some extra time to go junking. Can you believe it?!?! Always a gift, but especially at this time of year. I am looking forward to hopefully getting some crafting time over the holidays. (sigh) Maybe you have the same Christmas wishes, too?

Holiday Craftiness

Not wanting to put my holiday gift cards in a plain ol' box...
I made some cards to hold them.
It helped get me in the holiday mood.

Hope you are getting there, too!

Oh La La!

I was sooooo excited when I won Lori's darwing at Vintage Flair. I never win anything, and to win something from a crafting goddess like her is 'doubley' special. Her bow is even more gorgeous in person than when she shoed it on her blog.
She jazzed it up with some of her fancy sewing and an adorable little girl.

Thanks, Lori!
