A FEW CHRISTMAS PROJECTS....

IF YA LOOKING FOR THE BBTB BLOG HOP CLICK HERE

Okay I am getting really excited to start on some of my holiday gift wrapping....I am trying to stay with the theme of GOLD, KRAFT, RED, WHITE on my packages under the tree...yes you read that right KRAFT...I have went KRAFT crazy....Over at the CUTTING CAFE two great files have just been released: 2010 CALENDAR SET....(look for a project to come soon)
GIFT AND MONEY CARD HOLDERS...this set has loads of sentiments as well...
So in keeping with the kraft theme, I decided to make 4 gift card holders for my children using kraft paper....I have these hanging from the tree...poor little Ben came home today and saw some additional presents under the tree but didn't see the ones on the tree....SNEAKY ME....I got that Christmas daily thing going on...so it will be fun to journal about him not even noticing the gift cards hanging from the tree....Next is a money holder...I am planning on giving this to my Hubbys parents...I did this in blue...her Christmas tree is blue...so I am thinking I will wrap their present in Kraft paper and attach this on there somewhere....FINALLY is a picture of my stairs...I still need to put the pine cones on the dips....I would love to see you alls Christmas decorations...leave me a comment with a link if ya have yours up yet....I will share more pictures as the days go on....

Regina, I just love your tree and those darling hanging gifts....and what a beautiful staircase. I used to live in a two story house and now I am so thankful I am in a single family home. My aged knees and hips thank me daily. Hugs.

I was already impressed w/ your paper artistry, but this time around I was even more impressed by your interior decorating. I LOVE the card for the inlaws. Just beautiful!

Love your stair decorations. I haven't even started to decorate mine yet but mine will be a mirror of what it looks like every year (for the last 20 years) since we moved to this home. Wish Ihad such great stairs. My photos are posted in 2008 Christmas.........TFS

Hi Regina,
I will be heading over to the Cutting Cafe for the gift card words - they are great for what I do each year!!
I love your holders - we too give money to grandma and our Children; only presents for the Grandchildren these days. Money is needed by everyone.
Your home is beautiful - what gorgeous stairs to decorate - and what a beautiful job you have done!!
Hugs, Candy
