Craftin' for Christmas...

So this weekend we get an extra hour of sleep...or in my case, and extra hour of crafting!
I have gotten "Halloweened" out, so it's on to Christmas.  And with the weather here in Florida finally dipping down a bit, I can get into the winter holidays.  That's also the reason for the New "Fallish" Background!!!
With finances being tight everywhere, I thought this year I will make as many gifts as I can for various friends and family.  I hope they don't mind.

I first made this exploding box...I got the idea from Kathy at PaperPhenomenon.  She made a Halloween one, but as I said earlier, I am "Halloweened" out! LOL!!!  So I went for a gingerbread house.  I am totally loving the SCAL program with my Cricut...that's how I made all the embellishments. I still have a lot of learning, but so far, so good.

I also made a Recipe Box for someone at work.  I hope they like it.  It was a lot of fun to do, and I got the idea from Laura at FollowingThePaperTrail.  She is another artist that inspires me...please visit her when you have a chance and let her inspire you as well!  I did change some things, but most of it is the same as hers.

Well, that's all for this weekend.  Can't wait for the week to go by so I can create a bit more.  Still have Christmas cards to make!  I always say I will make them early, but it never happens!

Take care everyone and thank you for stopping by!  Remember, I LOVE comments, so please leave one and tell me what you think of what I am doing!  Thank you!
