This weeks workshop pieces....just in time for Christmas gifts.

I am demonstrating these at a workshop this week. a Calendar that will stand on a desk and a book mark complete with its own pouch. Both would make a wonderful personal gift for Christmas. The Calendar has a Tulip  on the front made with an oval punch and the Bookmark has a Heleconia flower made with the Bird Punch. Both are very effective and pleasing designs for these 2 projects . A variety of techniques will be shown and I am sure the ladies will go away very pleased with their 'Make and Takes' this week.  I have so many things I want to do in this papercraft that I wake up in the morning wanting to go to my craft room immediately. But life must go on and the day to day running of a home needs to be sorted first. I can but just dream.

Another great Idea for a cute inexpensive Kris Kringle gift for Christmas.

How many times before Christmas do we have to take a small gift for a Kris Kringle at the last get together before the big day. With the expense of Christmas looming I have been thinking of some cute little gifts that are not expensive to make, but will be appreciated by the recipient. Here is another one....a Calender that will stand up on your desk.
