Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Over the holidays I was able to make a few gifts for friends and family. I took toiliet paper rolls and covered them in paper and put little candies inside them and folded the ends down. I finished them off by putting bows on them.

 I also made an advent calendar for the grandkids. I think it turned out really awesome. I used some Christmas paper I got for my birthday. I had fun making it and on the other side of the little boxes I decorated for Halloween.

I also made some pretty little boxes. I intend to make cards to put in them to give as gifts throughout the year. I only made a few and gave the empty boxes to a few people. I found a tutorial on Gina K. Designs to make the boxes - really easy and very cute.
That's all that I have for now - I have very limited space and supplies but I will try to make projects more frequently. I really enjoy it and it helps to keep me balance. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year!!

What doesn't kill us!!

I have high hopes of being able to start posting crafty things again soon!!  I have made a few things for Christmas: an advent calendar for the grandkids and some little candy treasures out of toliet paper rolls decorated with paper and filled with candy for friends and family. And last night it snowed a whole bunch, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!! I'm going to be spending Christmas at home and a couple friends said they'd stop by so I'm looking forward to that. I'm on the road to recovery after having emergency surgery to untwist my bowels a week ago - that was a trip! But all is well now, hopefully the world doesn't end tonight!!
