So the first Christmas cards are done! My husband always has special Christmas cards for the Children in his family so when I found these felt Christmas pieces I knew they would be great.
What is not looking so great right now is my crafting area. It is a mess but hopefully in the next couple of day I will have finished our Christmas cards and can start making the ones I am donating to the church bazaar.
So this was not the project I wanted to do. I wanted to cover the pumpkins in glitter but the choice of glitter colors leaves something to be desired in the UK so mid project we changed ideas and this is how it turned out.
A few months ago I decided I wanted to start doing scrapbooking and stamping again but I was missing one vital ingredient a paper trimmer. When I was living at home I just used my mom’s. She has an amazing 12x12 guillotine style paper cutter from her days as a stamping demonstrator. When I moved over to England I was so preoccupied with the wedding and then finding a job and then hating the job I had found and then finding a job I loved that I really did not have time. Now that I am more settled and have all the free time that hating my job entailed I have decided to get back to my love of crafting. Still one problem no paper trimmer, so I looked around compared and found the one I wanted unfortunately I found the one I wanted near the end of the month when money is always tight so decided to wait until I got paid to buy it. My husband was witness to my search for a paper trimmer and decided to get me one for our first anniversary since paper is the traditional gift for the first wedding anniversary so a month and a half early here is my anniversary gift!
I know some people would want diamonds or jewelry or other things but baby this makes my heart go boom bloom!
I am hoping that my husbands support of my crafting will one day lead to a craft room when we have a bigger place! One can dream.
