Christmas tags

Yes, I have been temporarily MIA–work is crazy busy (praise God!) and I have been traveling–so slacking on the blog posts.  Have no fear, it’s not like I haven’t been crafting!  

So, Sami and I decided to have a Christmas card/tag day–she made the cards and I made the tags–and a box so that you can give them as a gift.  Mine will be going to my favorite aunt–I always wrap her Christmas presents when we visit them at Thanksgiving–we sit in her room with the door shut and the football games on and she writes the tags while I wrap the gifts.  My daughters think I am crazy, but I find it very soothing!  So, here is the box–

And here are the tags.  I didn’t make multiples of each like we did on Saturday–so I will be making more so that she has a full assortment!

Banner Blog Hop!

 

This month’s blog hop is one of my favorites–I love the new Build a Banner Kit and have had so much fun with different banners!!  You may be coming from this blog–isn’t Denise talented?

My eldest daughter is getting married in May–and my friend, Sami, hosted her first shower–a Pampered Chef shower.  I wanted to create a banner for the  shower that Kendall could also use for any other events in the future–so decided to make one with the word, “Celebrate”.  Here is the finished banner:

And this is what it looked like for the shower–with photos from the years they have dated.  Obviously, I think that, if a little is good, then a lot is fabulous!!  Remember, from here, you want to be sure to visit my mentor, my hero, my friend, Sami!Sept Blog Hop banner
