'Tis the Season...

I started making Christmas treasures
back in the early Fall. I'm not the biggest
of Halloween fans so usually I overlook
that holiday and start marching right into
Thanksgiving and Christmas, two
of my favorite holidays.
I have a dear friend, Marilynn, whom I have
never met in person. We became cyber buddies
commenting on the same political story on
Comcast news and kept in touch ever since.
She admired a star I had done similiar to
the one above on facebook and said she
was saving her pennies for it. Right after her
post the star sold. When she ordered some tags
from me last week, I put together a new
star and tucked it in her order. She was thrilled!
I could feel her surprise all across the states to me!
I love doing things like that!
I made these ornaments the other day, they were so
fun to create!
If you are crafty, you could easily reproduce.
If not, you can find them in my paper store

Well, I'm off to head over to Pinterest after
a littleblog hopping to see what inspirations
peeps have posted!
