creatively crafty christmas

Forgive me for the blog lapse in my December dailies, but you know, i've been preoccupied tending to all my Creative Christmas details.  So in the past three days, here's a photo tour of what i have done:

...Made 12 Tattered Floral Pins for gifts with the Legacy Studio fabric i designed for JoAnn's last year.  (i'll do a tutorial in January)

...Made 13 paper gift boxes (so far) for gifts (i am certifiably obsessed with the Martha Stewart Scoring Board especially since i got it for $9.99 with a Michaels 50% off coupon!)... 

...Made 13 rosettes/lollies for the top of the gift boxes...

 ...Made 22 dozen old fashioned butter cookies 
(My great aunt's recipe from when before cholesterol was invented)...

...Made about 3 pounds of Peppermint Bark...

...Made a mound of Hershey Kiss Waffle pretzels...

 ...Wrapped about 65 gifts (at least!)...

 ...Made about 85 gift tags for all the gifts, punched, inked and stamped...

...Made 30 MORE Alcohol Ink ornaments for my own family and friends. (there are those #%&*# ornaments again, obsessed i tell you!!!  But they're so pretty, they look like jewels.)

...Hope you are loving your Christmas.  Now i am going to reacquaint myself with Mr. Dyson and get this Christmas Cyclone of Creativity cleaned up a bit.  So peace, love and joy to you today!!
