Okay, I am in "panic" mode right now!!!  I'm suppose to be at the grocery store getting supplies to start baking tomorrow -- and that is just "NOT" going to happen today.  Why?  Well I am still making gifts and wrapping -- stop laughing Tamie, I know what you are saying!!  All my stamping friends know me well enough to know how SLOW I am (so does all my family).  But hey, a girl can't have everything (but, I sure wish I was Ms. Speedy like Tamie, have Ronda's patience, and my daughter's body).  So I just have to work with what God blessed me with (please, somebody tell me what that is????).

So here is some of the gift packaging I have done so far (still have more gift bags to make).  I am having so much fun, but I'm going to pay for it as I look at my laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc., which hasn't been done for two days.  Instead, this is what I've been doing:

Can you tell I'm in love with the Candy Cane Designer Paper, Fabric, and Rub-Ons which go with the stamp set "A Cute Christmas."  
Lot's of sparkle with the Silver Glass Glitter, Basic Rhinestones, and "Iridescent Ice
Embossing Powder."
Don't forget to click on these pictures to enlarge (actually maybe you shouldn't because my "oopsies" show up more.

I know this is out of focus, but was trying to show you how much they sparkle.
And here are some more of my paper-sack pouch bags, using the same product as my gift bags along with the fabulous "Candy Cane Fabric" and a little bit of "Champagne Mist" on my tissue-paper roses.
A close-up of one of the pouches.  I just loved how these turned out.  You can actually enlarge this and check my sewing -- I'm getting better!!

If I get time before Christmas, I will post the rest of my projects/gift bags.  Yep, I do wait until the last minute but feel pretty good being as I was gone the whole month of November and didn't really start until about ten days ago.

Peace to all,
"[Love] believes all things, hopes all things."  -- 1 Corinthians 13
"Love looks beyond what people are, to what they can become."


  1. Wow!! If I received one of these, I'd probably just forget there's suppose to be a gift inside! (and as to the laundry, you must have an "emergency pair" somewhere--hehe).

  2. What can I say Sandi but WOW these are to die for, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. Where do I start...the tags are super love how you cut them, and all the little details to everything! You really have been busy, love all the bling and ribbon on the sacks...I need one... well enough is your head getting larger yet from all these complements? You just keep getting better and better need to case for sure!!!!!!

  3. Remember what Janet Wakeland said? You need to think about entering the contest that Stampin Up! has before convention. Totally drawing a blank as to what it's called. Everything is beautiful. No one will notice if the dishes and laundry aren't done. Wonderful.
