1 card, 2 cards, how many cards more?

Hello fellow bloggers.
I know it's been a few days since I have posted anything
on my blog. I have been real busy baking, finishing up
some gifts, shopping, making cards, getting packages in
the mail etc. etc.. I can guess that a majority of you have
been doing the same. Since it's been a little crazy for me
lately todays post is going to be real heavy in pictures.
Header picture is card #1. Card # 2 is below

This will prove that I have been crafting just haven't
had the time to post my projects. Card #3 is next.

I still have Tamales to make. Card # 4 is next

Also a few more gifts to wrap. Last card for today is
card # 5 pictured below.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures of just a few things that I
have been working on. Until my next post Have A Splendid

Beary Search

Hello fellow bloggers.
Hope everyone is doing well and that your getting all
your things done that you may have on your to do list.
I am just now getting the house decorated for the holidays
This is very unusual for me but as I have said before I
really am not in the Christmas Spirit. Maybe it has to do
with two more relatives passing away. This makes it five
deaths in our family this year. The latest one happened
yesterday.Ok so enough of my pitty party I know there
are people out there who are dealing with worse things
that I am.
In my header picture is a wall hanging that my
mother-in-law made for my kids when they were very
young. My daughter and sons have been asking for this
count down to Christmas calendar. Since I only have
one and there are three kids I don't want any of them
getting mad that one of them got it.

So I am on a Beary Merry Christmas search. It's
what is called a printed panel. My mother-in-law
bought the panel then quilted it adding a couple of
loops to be hung by.

It was bought in the late eighties. If anyone has a panel
stashed away and would like to sell it to me I would
be so happy. If you happen to find one at a second hand
store and it is in good shape please pick it up for me and
I will buy it from you. I need two of them and then each
of my adult kids would each have their own.
My kids have such fond memories of looking at the day
and reading where the bear went looking for Christmas.
Each one took a turn on moving the cloth bear around
in the house. I think it would be neat if they could each
have one.
Thank you for stopping by. Until my next post Have A
Splendid Evening!!!!!!!!!!

Snowflakes I see

Good afternoon everyone.
Hope everyone is doing well. I have been busy trying
to get all my Christmas stuff done but it's a little hard
when your really not in the Christmas Spirit. I really
can't say why I'm feeling this way all I know is that I
am so far behind in baking I don't know if I'll get
everything done that I normally do for Christmas.
In my header picture is a tag that I made to add to my
daughters gift. I know it's a little hard to read I haven't
had a real good light source lately. The tag reads
Sending Christmas Love. It was made using one
of the cuttlebug embossing folders.
Next is a card I made and this one too was hard to
get a photo of it because of the gold cardstock.

Inside the card reads "Jesus is the Reason"
Below are some of the snowflakes that I have been
working on. These snowflakes are quilled. I don't
think I will make very many of them it is very time
consuming. Around here these are the only snowflakes
in sight. .....LOL.... We should have a few inches of
snow by now but we don't. It did snow one day but
it melted away before the day was over.

Well thats it for today hopefully I can get some better
pictures of the other things I have been working on. I
asked for a light box for Christmas hopefully I'll get one
and it'll be easier to get light on my projects.
Until my next post Have A Splendid Evening!!!!
