I have a few quick little tags that I made for my speech students' gifts. They are 3-4 years old, so I knew that I shouldn't go crazy since they would end up on the floor in one second!
Up first are some sparkly candy canes using Waltzingmouse Stamps Sewing Box-Christmas! I can't believe how glittery the Stickles looked! I guess I usually use a dab here and there...but if you lay it on thick, it really shines!
And the little Holiday Button Bits gingerbread man makes another appearance this season. He's dancing on a PTI Tag Sale #3 die cut embossed with a new dotted chevron Cuttblebug striped embossing folder. Even though these tags were for little ones, I couldn't resist adding buttons and dimensionals here and there!
To be honest, I haven't felt very much like crafting since last Friday. So hard to get in the spirit when I know so many families are devastated. My heart has been very heavy and even Christmas carols in the store aisles bring on tears. But I am trying to enjoy each little moment with my family and friends. And something to look forward to tonight....SNOW! It's seems like it's been a long time since we've had a sizable accumulation for Christmas. Maybe 4-7 inches for us! I rushed out today...but not to buy gifts. I needed snow pants and boots for the girls!! Leave it to an Upstate New Yorker to leave that to the last minute! :)
