Welcome Linda, wow you have some ambitious decorating plans! You decorate your tree in a theme each year? We'll be getting our Christmas tree this coming week. I decorate it in a glam red and gold, with rustic touches. I have a second tree I always put up, and that is up and shining brightly! lol

Cheryl if you link your picture on this thread, I will know you have a submission and I'll go to your gallery and copy your link then post it to the opening thread. So, just post a picture here and that's all you need to do. Sorry I think when I used the the term link, it confused everyone.

Hi all!

I have 2 cousins who are sisters and in the same small nursing home. They love when I send them "happy" cards, and don't get out. I thought it would nice if they could give cards to the other residents and staff. I made 8 of each card and got them to the post office just in time today.

Our church as a Ladies Christmas dinner for those who are widowed and those in the nursing home. The other ladies of the church volunteer to draw names and the ones that are able go out for a dinner and you buy dinner for your guest and bring them a gift. If they are in a nursing home, you deliver them a gift. I drew a sweet lady that is in the nursing home. I made her this arrangement to sit on her vanity where she can look at it from her bed. I will be delivering it this week.

I had too much fun making Twinkles at LSS JN doll meetup. I even took tiny the leftover Christmas lights I got decades ago for a "gingerbread" house project. It was so cute I decided to mount it on chipboard and then decided it would make a perfect tag album for DDs stocking!

I'm really happy to be able to participate in this challenge this month.
I'm submitting two gifts I made, one for my friend Maria, and another one for her teenage son. They are wrapped and resting under the tree. I'm working on those for my kids and other family members and friends so, hopefully, I'll be able to post them soon.

I'm throwing up the white flag! Just after joining in the challenge, my kitty got very, very sick. I've spent every free minute tending to the little guy and won't be able to participate after all. The good news is that he's alive and on the mend! He has another week of wearing the cone-of-shame, but the worst is behind him.


All of the posted projects so far look fantastic!!!! Great job, everyone!

When you say link to the challenges, you can actually "join" some of the challenges, this is just linking our projects to this thread. I think it's because not all challenges are started from the challenge page, where you create a "start new challenge" button. it's ok, if this is all you want.

My last box going to my step daughter and her family. No side stamped images, since hubby rushed me for this today!

Hi all.

I made two sets of cards for gift giving this year.

The first one was for my Secret Santa recipient. I made a group of Happy Birthday cards for her to send out.
Pink and Purple OSW Happy Birthday Card Set By KatieJo

The second one was for my husband's grandmother. She is in assisted living and just doesn't need a lot of things. Note cards seem to suit her well.

For this thread, I've only included photos of them in their boxes, but my gallery has photos that better show the individual cards. Each set has 12 cards.

So let's say I know I'm behind on love and chatter, but good excuse - have a temp assignment for a couple weeks and hours are 9-6 and last week was a blur getting everything finished by Christmas. I took pics, but haven't had time to upload. Spending today packing up decorations and doing laundry.

Here's pics of the felt hair pins for secret santa swap and mini album for niece. The hair pins were a really OLD Martha Stewart kit that also made a necklace and earing. The mini album is same as the ones I've been making for the grand-adults. Hubby's niece loved the one on my coffee table, so I made one for her. Good thing I had extra pics lol! Spent last Sunday at DDs friend's house helping make dough and wrap cookies for everyone coming to their X-Mas Eve party. Her friend did all the decorating of over 100 cookies. She also made unicorns and llamas. They're from Peru, so she made those for her nieces and nephews. I used the paper inserts from page protectors to cut tags to emboss and put on back of each cookie.

Spent the day taking all my ribbons off the spools and wrapping them on plastic floss bobbins and for the wide ribbons, cut foam core and wrapped them. I need to get another pack of the floss bobbins and a floss box. I had a cube filled with packages of ribbons and now I have another floss box filled, and using box for storing CDs for the wide ribbons, and it's only half full.

I still need to do same for all my fancy laces and trims.

I hope everyone had a great time with family during the holidays.

Woohoo for me. I'll be using the GC to get some storage goodies.

Dawna - as always - thanks so much for hosting and inspiring us!
