First I would like to thank Melissa for awarding my new blog the Liebster Award. It is an honor to have an award in such little time of existence. THANK YOU!! And thank you to all the new followers. Nice to see the group growing
So... Christmas is just a 4 weeks away. Cant you believe it??? And I need to explain something about me: I dont deal well with the Christmas madness that infects every single person and cause a mayhem in our lives. I just dont do madness. Not that kind at least. Another thing is that I believe that open up your post box and finding a card from a friend instead of the everyday bills makes a day much better and put a big smile on my face
I have been making Christmas Cards throughout the year so I wouldnt have last minute crafting. Same with my tree ornaments. So this week I've decided it was time to get all cards addressed and ready to go to post office when December arrives (Im from Brazil and a good number of cards have a long trip to make, so the earlier the better). I had all inserts printed already and only had to address, sign the cards and write my personal little messages in it. It was quicker than I had expected. And here are a couple of the cards:
Last week, while Jenny was stitching her stockings (see previous post) I was cutting cardboard for the stitched ornaments. I managed to cut and attach the wadding in all pieces of cardboard but didn't have time to actually finish it. So this week, it was time. Mounting these ornaments is a new thing for me so I'm trying to learn how to use the trims and how to choose them for each piece. Needless to say I love LHN huh?
And this is the Eskimo from 2 weeks ago. I turned it into a round ornament and not sure where I will put it but I'm love with the twisted cord. I used a Lucet to make the cord. I'm learning how to work with the Lucet and how to make different cables. So far so good
And last thing done this week: Aiveen had offered to give me a hand scrapbooking my wedding album. I had an accident with glue leaking through the album pages (don't ask... I have already cried so much over it...) and now the whole album is done. Thank you so much Aiveen for the dies and paper and Thank you Jenny for getting this organized. I wanted to keep it simple and really just hide the marks but managed to create something nice. Here are a couple of pages:
Thanks for stopping by!
