It's beginning to look a lot like...

Christmas! I can't believe it's almost Christmas time already! I finally put our Christmas tree up! I didn't go all out this year though.
RE: my last post, we did get several inches of snow. My perm appointment got postponed for a day, but I did get it. I don't have a pic yet.
That same day, I went to the allergist. I got 99 injections to see what I'm allergic to. Turns out, I am allergic to 32 of those "things". My serum should be in this next week. I'll get injections weekly for 5 years. Ugh.
We currently have a winter storm warning...up to 17 inches of snow here. Woohoo! But, there'll be some ice and sleet as well.
I've been busy making stuff...

I made these for a swap. The mini notebook on the left was fun to make. It's a spiral bound notebook. I covered the spirals with all sorts of fibers/ribbons. The item on the right is a tin full of cute embellies...some I made, some I bought.

This is a note card set I made with a card box. All the cards inside have a winter theme but they're all different.

This is another set I made for a gal in CA. The second photo shows the fibers on the box handle better.

This item is a Tic Tac Holder that I made for a swap! You make the base with solid color cardstock then embellish the front. The Tic Tac's go inside and a ribbon closes it and holds it all together!
For everyone at Fred's pharmacy, I made "Warm Thoughts" jars. There are thoughts pertaining to Christmas and the holidays folded up and put in the jar. You draw out one slip of paper each day, up through Christmas eve. There are quotes, scriptures and also fun things to do as families. The second photo is a close-up of the jars.
