Knitting for christmas

Tomorrow is the first Advent, this year I'm not knitting socks, I'm knitting an advent wreath. I love this idea, here you can find a great tutorial, it is in German, but you'll get the idea.

now we can get busy decorating it. .... So warm and fuzzy, it makes you feel good.
Have a great first Advent.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all, this is the first Thanksgiving we are spending with our dog Thunder.

While he is waiting for the Turkey to be done, I whipped up some
Sock monkey felt ornaments. You can find the embroidery file free here until Dec. 31st.

Felt ornaments

I fell in love with these ornaments last Christmas and I finally got the embroidery file from Omasplace
I altered it a little because I wanted to make flat felt ornaments to put into my chrisrmas cards.
Have a great day

Gift card holders

Just finished a bunch of these cute gift card holders, this is a facebook freebie from Fivestarfonts, thanks so much for this great embroidery design.
I'm filling mine with chocolate to give away.
Have a great week

Christmas goodies

I can't believe Christmas is less than a month away, I love making little goodies to give away and because I need a lot of them, they need to be inexpensive.
 I found these Lind chocolate bars/sticks ? for a little more than a dollar, they are perfect for just a little something to give. I made gift boxes that are 1 inch square. They are made from cardstock 8,5 inch by 4,5 inch, scored at 1,2,3,4 inches and then on one of the short sides at 3/4 inch.
I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Special day

Happy Sunday,
today was the birthday of a special friend and what better way to show that you care about someone then making a card just for them.
I used my Big shot and Spellbinders dies to make the embossed middle section of the card, the flower is attached with a brad and the rhinestone is glued to the brad.

Meet the newest member of our family.
We went to Petsmart to buy turtle food and walked out with this guy. We don't know how old he is, but he is a great guy.  He are having a lot of fun with him.
