A bit of fall, and moving on to Christmas

So, I have a blogging dilemma. I am making almost all of our Christmas gifts this year, which I had already planned on and squirreled away supplies as they were on sale...but now VERY happy I had this foresight as our family income has been significantly reduced. When I make something with my hands, I put myself into it, and put myself out there giving it to someone. I think of them as I create, they inspire their gift, and I hope they love it. In all fairness, some people are just not into homemade, and I don't force my creations upon those people. And men-they are hard to create for too.

Anyways, I want so badly to share my ideas and creations...but if I do, I'll be spoiling the Christmas surprise for my family. So...I may be a bit absent until after Christmas.

To hold you over, here are a few Thanksgiving cards I created to distract my family in case I overcooked the turkey, and my leaf garland along with some quick covered votives I whipped up (didn't happen, turkey was fine, and the cards were a nice thank-you for them being my Thanksgiving guinea pigs).

I used black glitter embossing powder, lovely!

I love the texture of this card, it might be my favorite from the series.

Love the variation of color, and texture was amped up with clear embossing powder on the leaves

Here's wishing you and yours a season filled with peace, love, and celebration of the things that are truly important and precious.
