Merry Christmas!

Just a quick post to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. We are heading to Cambridge to spend Christmas with our kids ( I don't have to cook this year...whoo-hoo!)and then on to Toronto for Boxing day with my in-laws. The store will re-open on Tuesday December 28th with lots of lovely specials! Whatever your plans are, may your holidays be filled with joy, peace and love. Thanks for checking in and why not check back again sometime next week to see another card from our first class of the new year!

A few more Christmas cards

I didn't upload this week's class project because it was supposed to be a surprise. Unfortunately a few of the ladies missed class due to sickness this week, so I'll hold off posting pics of that project for now. Instead,I thought I'd share a few cards I've been making for friends and family. I'm still working on a few last minute cards, as I keep remembering other people I'd like to give cards to. I finally talked myself into cutting into one of my very few 8.5 x 11 sheets of Japanese paper to make some Origami Christmas Tree cards. It's such fabulous paper to work with, and I really loved the colours in this sheet for a Christmas card. The other cards were made with various scraps I've been holding on to....I just love when I can make something pretty from scraps don't you? Anyway, there are no more classes till the New Year now, but I'll be working on some ideas for upcoming classes during the holidays, so watch out for some sneak peeks!

Late again....

Another late post...sorry! I took my camera home so I could post yesterday and I forgot that we just cancelled our internet at home...duh! are two of this week's class cards, both quite simple and much nicer in real life than they photographed. I'm still working on number 3, which will be a gift card holder. Anyone going to send me photos of their tags from last week so I can post them?....awwww c'mon!
