Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Unfortunately, we didn't get to see ALL our family, this year but Master J. certainly kept us busy! You just can't tell a 2 year old to sit and salivate at the delicious turkey aroma for 30 more minutes. He wants dinner now!
Well, it's time to pack away the cornucopia, gourds, garlands of leaves and the Thanksgiving Cabin and put up the tree and the Mistletoe Manor. (Although with the release of the new Frozen cart, I was thinking it might be fun to make a 3D Elsa's castle decorated for Christmas with all the characters skating around it. What do you'all think?)
I have been working on the treats I love to make for my family to hand out to co-workers and friends and this year, I adapted the cocoa cup file from Lori Whitlock and filled it with my favorite Ghiradelli chocolates. The paper comes from Martha Stewart and the sentiment from CTMH Artbooking. The snowflake flourish comes from Theresa Collins' December 25th cart and I cut it from DCWV Glitzy Glitter paper on the Intricate Cuts setting. It's gorgeous!
I am going to link my treat containers to the Decorate to Celebrate challenge # 89 Anything Goes! This is one of my favorite sites to browse for inspiration. Check it out!
Thanks for visiting with me! Time to get on the road and deliver Master J back to his parents - who moved from their apartment to a house today! : ) Christine

but I am so intimidated by the care and creativity that goes into making them! Last year I hit on the idea of monograms cut with the Cricut from American Crafts foil paper. They were gorgeous!
This year my media of choice was, of course, DCWV Glitzy Glitter paper. I found this monogram set at the Silhouette on-line store and cut the letters at about 2 inches. (It's called Winter Monogram Flourishes.)
I start out color coordinated... So pretty, much easier than tags, and everyone always knows the gift is from DH and me! LOL!
And look how pretty my sister's 'J' looks on her package! Thanks for visiting with me today.
