Happy December!!!

I am so far behind on everything that has to do with Christmas. Our Vegas trip was fun. We did a lot of "touristy" things. Football in Vegas was okay. But now that I am back and Christmas is fast approaching I am way, way behind. I am hoping we can get a tree and put it up tonight. I have actually talked my husband into a real tree this year. Woo hoo!!! I need to bake, bake, bake this weekend. I am afraid, however....it will be store bought cards this year for some....how sad. :(.

There is one thing that I did get done in a fairly timely fashion though. I am involved in a closed swap on SCS. And, I am participating in the a Secret Santa gift exchange within that swap. We had a dollar limit on what to spend. So I made several hand made items for the recipient of my package. One of the items I made were Christmas bows. The tutorial is on SCS and they super easy to make and not very time consuming!!! I think they are very pretty and I hope the wonderful sister receiving them can use them on some of her Christmas packages.

Have a wonderful week and a terrific holiday season!!!
