really.....


Hello all!  Is it really only days till Christmas.:o)   I've been twisting, wrapping, tying bows, cutting and folding...a busy week in my little studio for sure.   I also made the prettiest handmade gift tags using lovely vintage Christmas images.   They were quite easy to make.  I simply copied the images onto card stock.  Once copied I cut the images out, punched a hole at the top and added ribbon.  Oh my goodness what a difference these tags make to your gifts, the perfect touch.   If you want to be extra fancy you can even add glitter to your tags.   Vintage Holiday Crafts offers some of the most beautiful free clip art for the holidays.  Give them a visit, I just know you will be delighted.  Even if you don't make your own gift tags, adding a little glitter to store bought tags dresses them up just beautifully!:o)

I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can get in a few handmade Christmas cards this year.   For me, it is something wonderful about giving handmade at Christmas.  You don't have to be a crafty queen,  a handmade gift is a heart gift no matter how small.  Wishing each and everyone of you a most beautiful week.

Smiles♥

Hello Beverly! I'm still offline but can view some blogs on my phone & trying to figure out how to leave comments. It works with some blogs, not with others. I wanted to pop in and say hello and wish you blessings, my friend. And I just love the pretty packages - you have a gift in adding beauty to every occasion! Oh, and thank you for the link. :)

"A handmade gift is a heart gift": yes, Beverly, I totally agree with you. Recently I gave my last book (that I did myself from the writing to the printing) to my closest relatives, with a personal dedication, and my great pleasure was their happiness that I could read on their face.
I am sure that all that you have prepared with love for the others will be very special, especially for Christmas.
Have a beautiful week!
Anne

You are quite right Beverly. A handmade gift is a heart gift. You have so much taste to do beautiful things that I have no doubt that your handmade gifts will be received with great joy.

I long for Christmas perfection such as this but always seem to be just barely getting it together...
You are an inspiration and this is an idea that I can surely carve a bit of time out for. Beautiful!

These little packages are GORGEOUS, Beverly! The white & chocolate brown is a scrumptious combination. I love your ideas for gift tags--much appreciated. I've been trying to rustle up some Christmas since we've been home. Not easy when getting through a cold and get lag... I'm in an all over fog these days... LOL! Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS))

What temptingly lovely little gifts! I love your personal touches!

Guess what! My family will be moving to Idaho after Christmas! My latest blog entries will explain how this all came about, but it truly is God! A great Northern adventure awaits us. And, our teenage son (who has been struggling with poor choices) will be in a better environment.

So, we are living out of boxes at my brother's apartment right now. I am enjoying Christmas through the decorations of my dear blogging friends. Next year I will be able to decorate in Idaho!

Smiles, KJ
