Wishing You Joy

Hello everyone and Happy Christmas Eve to you!
I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season with those you love.  I've spent the day cooking and crafting with my Mama, something I haven't had the opportunity to in many years.  My sweet hubby is doing the last minute grocery shopping for us so that we can play together! My oldest son and his family will be here tomorrow, so we will have a house full of  grandchildren and a very excited Lola (my little Yorkie)!  We will be missing my youngest son who won't make it this year, but we did get a chance to be together earlier and I'll be seeing him a few days after Christmas.  Life is good and I am blessed beyond measure!

I have one last Christmas gift to share with you for this year.  I started out with 2 of these and thought they were so cute that I ended up making about 6 of them....

(click on photo to enlarge)

* "Fancy Topper Die" by Jaded Blossom
* Nail polish bottles are from the Cricut cartridge "Slumber Party" - they are cut at 2.5 inches.  The bottle portion is cut from clear plastic.  I used Glossy Accents on the nail polish portion of the cut.
* The Christmas sentiments are also from Jaded Blossom and are stamped onto flags made with the Jaded Blossom "Flag Die"
*Gusset Bag is from Jaded Blossom

I added a couple bottles of nail polish and a cute little manicure set I found at Target to these bags.  After I finished them, I decided I definitely needed to make more of these fun gifts.  Here's a photo of the next 4 I created.....

I used some Trendy Twine in "Candy Cane" and "Twisted Lime" on these bags.

I just love the way these turned out!

Ok, it's time to go make the Oreo Balls to add to our Carrot Cake, Rum Cake, Fudge, Orange Balls and chocolate covered peanuts.  I'm thinking that's enough with the sweets and I'm hoping someone bought me a pair of sweat pants for Christmas because that may be all I'll fit into very soon!

Before I go, I just want to wish all of you a wonderful, merry Christmas filled with love, family and blessings.  It may be a few days, but I'll be seeing you soon.....

Until next time,
