Hello cyber friends! Did you cyber shop today? I cyber shopped last night. I guess we are headed towards Christmas! But I wanted to share my Thanksgiving decorations before I took them down and we start Christmas!
|In the background you can see I already am displaying our first Christmas cards. We have already received 4, only one showing.|
Now on to Christmas! I have been making Post it note holders using this tutorial, by Lea Denton.
I made 44 of them with magnetic closures. Our Ladies' Ministries will add them to our Christmas baskets for our shut ins. The baskets will also include, soft socks, hot chocolate mix, teas, puzzle books, fruit and baked goods. I will try to include a photo of the baskets after we make them up in a couple of weeks.
Here are the Post it Note Holders:
At first I used flowers like in the tutorial for the fronts, but the last half, I used a SU! die, and stamped a sentiment. Then I got the idea to add buttons. I have a ton of those. Anyway it was a fun process, and kept me busy for several days. Oh, and matching up the magnets, was fun. LOL
I am a little late getting this post, as I was at a ladies potluck at our church tonight. In fact I took photos so I would have an entry ticket to our T Party; T Stands For Tuesday over at Bleubeard's & Elizabeth's Altered Book Lover. We just post a drink related post and link to her post. A big T party!
You are welcome to join us!
Here are photo of our decorations. I don't have anything to do with the decorations, but one of our ladies does a beautiful job. And, Elizabeth, this first one is for you!
That is my 3 layer Christmas jello at the main food table.
