Hello!!! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Finally, a post... after a long time. Christmas has come and gone and just when I thought things would finally get back to normal and I had time to breathe...yesterday, we had an island wide power outage. Aaaaah! I was just about to post some pictures and zzzzzt... the power went out and I lost the internet connection. We didn't have power from 6:30 pm. I still could've done a lot of other things, but just being in the dark made me sleepy, so I went to bed quite early. It was nice to catch up on some much needed sleep. Other parts of the island got their power back by 3:30 am...but not us, we didn't get power back until around 11:00 am or so this morning. My brother-in-law jokingly said that our area must not be "essential"... no kidding.
Anyway, I wanted to share with you first some pictures of the other jars I made this Christmas. I just need to make a few more non-Christmassy ones and they will be put away for another year or until someone asks me to make them again. A couple of my friends needed some gift card holders, so I used the pull out card pattern that Jean from Dandelion Designs shares and altered the pattern to perfectly fit gift cards. Instead of having a stamped message on the pull out part, I attached the gift card. These are two images that I just bought this year. The bear with gifts is a Whipper Snapper image and bear with snowman is a C.C. Designs stamp. They were both too cute to pass up and they were the perfect size to decorate this holder. That's about all I have to share right now, but for Christmas, I received a book that had patterns for some handmade cards. I can't wait to start using them.
