Christmas is coming the goose is getting fat

The holidays are quickly approaching and this goose is not gettin' any thinner this year, sigh. But along with all the yummy, rich and highly caloric things that come one of the funnest crafting seasons of the year! Let me just tell you why I love this holiday crafting the best. Being that it is the season of giving I have the perfect rationalization to get new crafting toys and supplies to make these fun and fabulous gifts for others. It's a total win win. You know you were thinking the same thing you just don't want to say it out loud. As a Kick off to the holiday crafts I get to share with you 2 project recently published...

I will do a tutorial with some tips for this holiday stitched card. for full instructions click on over to the Singer website. All Stampin' Up card stocks ... Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White and Silver and Sizzix Embossing folders. The brad is a retired SU product I had in my stash and a May Arts ruffled ribbon all assembled with a silver Sulky thread.

And coming to a new stand near you December/ January issue of Sew News magazine with my Count Down Calender. This fun project will hang in my home for years and years to come. With fabulous fabrics and trims by Riley Blake this project was so much fun to put together.

 What are you crafting this Christmas Season??
A early Merry Christmas and Happy Crafting to all and to all a goood night.

Leaves Keep on Fallin'

 This is a fun little project I whipped up for Singer.  These fun fall leaves are similar to the ones I created for another Crafts n' things project Falling Leaves Apron although simplified to fall color Kona's. I used the same Accuquilt die to cut the leaves but hand cutting is always an option.

Go and visit this fun project at Crafts n' things or

So once I had the pile of fall leaves sitting on my table I had to find more things to use them for. I love the straight out of the dryer wrinkly and showcasing every layer of the Kona.  I created a paper bag wreath and pinned my beautifully crinkled leaves in place. I just love fall don't you?
