This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

It seems like Christmas.....

went by in a flash. All the prep and anticipation, then all over so quickly. Do you feel that way too? While it was wonderful to relax and unwind this weekend, I wish it could last longer. I guess the next best thing is to try to keep that warm fuzzy feeling all year long. I want to share a photo of some cute Christmas treat holders I made with Stampin' Up! "Dashing" Designer paper which is retired, Old Olive card stock, and the Holiday Best stamp set, a hostess set. I also used the Scallop Circle punch and the 1 3/8 inch punch. I think they would be really nice for a dinner place marker or in a little bowl on your desk or table. Each one has a yummy Ghirardelli Chocolate square in it.

Those are gorgeous. I love how you circle punched an image that isn't a circle-I never think of stuff like that.

Yes, I totally agree! A lot of prep for it all to be over in a flash!

These are sooo cute...and tasty! Do you know I am hoarding my Peppermint chocolates? LOL They are limited edition, you know!!

Those are super cute, Cathy! It feels like Christmas is still going on for me. Of course, a big part of that is probably that our ginormous tree is right next to my desk, and Kaylee's new toys are all over the floor all around me. LOL

very pretty. These would have been great at my Mom's house. I may have to do this next year or do it for easter.

WOW! These would have been a wonderful favor for all our family at our Christmas parties! I will hold onto this idea for next year! Love them! And, I agree, Christmas takes a lot of prep and seems to fly by! Jim and I were talking about how long it took to buy and wrap all the girls gifts, and they opened the mountain in less than 20 minutes! Same with Christmas dinner...LOL!
