Is it just me or did November fly by?

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner this year. Lots of turkey, homemade cranberry sauce, brussel sprouts, acorn squash and LOTS of sparkling apple cider. Its a holiday tradition for us to have Martinelli's sparkling cider as a treat - delicious! After Thanksgiving my darling daughter and I spent Friday and part of Saturday making our Christmas cards. She's getting to be quite the little stamper! She is really developing a good eye for design and color - ahhh, a future consultant in the making....

Wow, I can hardly believe that Christmas is just 25 days away! I have SOOO many projects still on my list to make for this year so I know I'm going to be a busy little bee for the next couple of weeks. I'll take photos as I make things and post at a later date. I'm focusing this year on making as many of the gifts as possible - my big joke to my kids is that they can have anything they want this year as long as I have the materials to make it in my craft room!

Some of the projects I'll be making to give as gifts I've posted on my Holiday Gift Extravaganza posts - check those posts out if you are looking for inexpensive gift items to create. Another item I'll be working on is making treasure boxes for my kids. Close to my Heart has these awesome 9.5x9.5" square magnetic closure boxes (about 2-3" deep) that I'll be using as a base for a personalized treasure box for each kid. I'll get to work on those next week when the kids are back in school. Today we are pulling out the holiday decorations so it will be a fun but busy day! For those of you in the states, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! Don't forget to visit my blog for the December Stamp of the Month blog hop starting December 1 - I made a fab gift for my Mother-in-law that I can't wait to share!
