So, I am sort of excited for Christmas, how about you? We are having a very small Christmas this year, which I am totally ok with. I would rather have all the family together, eat loads of great food and play games. :) It's all about the little ones, as far as gifts go, which again, I am totally ok with. LOL! They are easier to buy for. :)
I am really excited about making homemade gifts for my friends and neighbors. With all the new things I have learned this year, I have a list a mile long (rein it in Ter) of projects I want to make. Budget wise, that is not going to happen (at least this year) but I can make some really cute boxes to put baked goods in. Yay! And of course Christmas cards, which I have been slowly but surely getting around to making. :)
Here is one I worked on yesterday. I am making my cards in multiples this year seeing as how I have a ton to get done. My goal is to have them all ready to mail out at the first of December. ( I figure if I wrote it down it would keep me accountable ) let's see how this works. LOL!

The Stamps of Life
I had this paper from years ago that I got in a scrapbook paper pack from Dollar Tree. I think it was waiting all this time for me to use it with this little penguin. I think he is adorable. I got interrupted after I stamped them and just now realized I forgot his bow tie, grrr! Oh well, easy enough to fix later. LOL! I am sure I will tweak it some more before they get sent out. :)
