as the days fly by

I wonder how I used to do it all when I was younger.  The tree's been up only a week, no stockings are hung, a few decorations are scattered about and only a handful of gifts have been bought.

While I haven't been very productive around here, I have been enjoying the company of friends and co-workers.  A few little gift exchanges, a crafting group, a get-a-way to San Francisco with my mom and a gift project for 130 employees with the management team at work...this elf has been busy!  :)

A handmade invitation to a get together that my mom does each year.

The beginning stages of the paperclay ornaments with vintage trim bows and music note paper hats.

I added some metallic silver pipecleaners as handles to the vintage silver jello molds before embellishing with silver-y floral picks.  These diamond dusted snowmen started to come to life. 

 Their little stick arms held a strand of tarnished silver balls.

Of course I couldn't resist adding some custom colored trees to some.  

 These little red trees were one of my favorites this year!

Of course I thought the green was stinkin cute as well!

Hopefully you will find time this holiday season to create something from the heart...something handmade.
