What have I been up to?

Christmas is almost here......
I have found myself so far behind on
everything and I am working
right up to the last minute.

A few weeks ago I finally sat down and
painted my Christmas card. This is something
that I have been doing for several years.
Difference is, I usually have it done
in August or September....this one
was finished at the end of November.



And they are in the mail now!
 
Years ago when my children were young
I started making them Christmas ornaments.
I would cross stitch them.

Then I added nieces and nephews,
brothers and then friends.
The last year I made them was about
10 years ago and at last count...
I did 25 that year.

This year I decided to do some for
my grandson's and one for my
great nephew.




Making ornaments and painting on top
of making Christmas gifts.



A REDNECK wine glass for
a dirty Santa gift.

And then this for a gift for
a friend at work.
She can use it as I have it or
put candy in it.


Now for the necklace and earrings...
I made these for me to attend
a Christmas party a couple weeks
ago. These are made from
paper clips. Love this.



And this next set is for a gift. Also made from
paper clips and a chain.

The next two gifts I made months
ago for Christmas gifts...actually
I had these done about 6 months ago!
Wow, was I on the ball, to bad I
dropped it along the way.

Cake plate.....made from
a candle holder and plate.


Same as with this one...candle
holder and plate.



And there you have it.....I have been busy
working on lots of things.
This does not include what I have
been working on for my
grandsons.

Thanks for stopping in,
