I found a wonderful tutorial on making an ornament out of Christmas cards on the scoutiegirl blog. You can find it here: Holiday Keepsake Ornament Tutorial , It is a great craft to make with any cards you get. I love the idea of repurposing cards instead of having to throw the whole thing away after the holidays are over. So, after I found this tutorial a few weeks before Christmas I eagerly awaited the arrival of our holiday cards so I could make one. The only thing I need to buy was the punch for this project-so I took a 50% off coupon to the craft store and picked up a 1 1/2 inch circle punch. Since it is a basic circle punch I was suprised I didn't already have one in my ever growing scrap book/ card making supplies. If you decide to try this project too or have already please be sure to leave a link so I can see how yours turned out. :)

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas. :) I had a pretty good holiday myself. I am excited to see consistent blog views despite the lack of a recent post. Hopefully my blog posting will pick up in the new year. Thank you for stopping by and reading. Here's to another year of reading blogs and posting on mine. And who knows I might even sneak in another post before 2010 is over. Before I send this blog through I was wondering-What was your favorite part of this Christmas?

So yesterday I decided that it was time to start making Christmas cards-Sometimes I don't make them all at once. Mainly because I tend to get carried away and make a bunch. I think they came out pretty good for my limited card making skills. And I managed to finish 6 of them. I think I will get more supplies before I make the rest of the cards. Here are the two cards that I think turned out the best.

Incase anyone was wondering the 1st day was a good sales day and the 2nd day we only had one sale the whole time. Overall though I think it was worth it. I had a good time and it is always nice to sell some of our wares. Now I need to see how much of the leftover stock can be taken to the HodgePodgery in Harrisburg. Plus I think I have enough yo-yo magnets to take some to the new HodgePodgery in Lancaster. Of course anything that was part of our Etsy shop has now been added back. I do wish though that they had more choices for food-they had a baked goods stand and then for lunch there was only falafel. The falafel wasn't to bad but for some reason the spices in it made my eyes water. And it really cleared my sinuses. lol. Anyway that is about it-now back to all the other holiday madness.
