I have been busy making....

This set for the Secret santa for our Christmas crop. I have made a matching perpetual Calendar (right), a Diary (bottom) a 'To Do' list book (middle back) and Notebook (left) all I have to do is add an Address book and a nice pen, They are all made from papers from the Making Memories 'Boho Chic' collection, a co-ordinating range of embellishments and ribbons and my great Bind-it-all.

I have also been busy making gift tags for the Grandkids Christmas presents, all 48 of them!!!

I have made 19 of the ones on the left for the girls presents and 29 of the ones on the right for the boys presents.

All of the images were hand stamped onto winter white textured card using Black Stazon ink, I then inked the edges in copper and mounted the image onto Cajun Bazzill which was cut just slightly bigger than Santa.

I have used my label programme to design the greeting which was then printed and affixed to the inside. The finished tags had either cotton string or gold Sari ribbon tied around the bottom and through the hole in the top. I am quite pleased with the way the came out even though it took my Daughter Sarah and I all day to make them and I am hoping that the kids will hang them on their Christmas trees when they have opened their presents.

Talking of presents I now have all of the boys presents completed, thats 6 height charts and 5 boxes as well as the suprise presents I have made for them, I cant tell you about them as 2 of my DIL visit this blog and I dont want them to know what they are. I also have the girls presents in hand, they are coming along nicely.

I may even get time to make some Christmas cards now I have an idea for them, but we shall see !!!!!
