ahh the fun of christmas crafting – an excuse to make everything as glittery as possible right? i always have so many things planned to do AND everything has to be shipped so no waiting til the last minute. that being said my posts may get a bit sparse as i get some of the bigger projects done on way too little time!
the two biggest things on my agenda are some very large canvases – kits i picked up from quick quotes at CKC over the summer and a digi calendar. plus the usual christmas ornaments for everyone (nearly done), and then various gift sets and such – preschool class, teachers, and small things for various folks….so i will show them as i get them done but some, like the canvases, will take some time. plus i want to get some winter hats crocheted for pezzy and some clay embellies made….the list never ends!
OK before we get on to the project today i have a WINNER TO ANNOUNCE!!! it seems the perfect pearl UTEE sandwich was the favorite, which is funny sine that is not even the technique i was supposed to be focusing on but sometimes it’s good to just go with the flow! here is the random drawing:

i have a christmas gift bag for you today.
i used Melissa’s sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. i also colored up another of my Pollycraft Digis - the challenge over there is anything but a card. i have to say, as i was coloring this image i could not help but think how much this little pixie looks like my friend, Amy Sheffer’s son Gabriel - you may remember him from the pics of Pezzy’s party. so here is my bag:
i cute the circle shape from my wild card cartridge – it was a whole card but i cut the back off. then i cut the circle with my George cartridge – nesties don’t go big enough so i am glad i have my cricut! the glitter on the scallops is Cherry Ice Stickles – alot more bang for your buck in terms of sparkle compared to regular stickles BUT not as much color. the tag is a spellbinders die. the center of the bow is a poly clay button i made on top of a fabric yoyo i got on etsy – love those things!
i colored the image with copics. he has a touch of spica glitter too. i am not sure if he is an actual christmas pixie – i can’t remember – but i made him into one
i am putting the finishing touches on another batch of ornaments – a super easy technique for quick ornaments but i think they are really cute *wink* i sure hope y’all have time to come check them out!!
