In between making the cards and addressing all of them and signing them all personally by hand, I have been taking time to sew for Christmas. There are 4 pillowcases done for 4 little ones, with at least 4 more to make this week.

I am working on 70 cards. I am using a stamp that I got from I (heart) Papers that is by Stampendous and is called Snowy Postcard. I stamped them and then used my watercolor pencils to give them some color and blended with my waterbrush. I roughed up the edges and am swishin' them with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink, Tea Dye. Once I finish all that, I can mount them on the blue background and then onto the card base!!!

Alot of the things I have been working on lately is for Christmas so I have had nothing to post, well, lots to post, but I don't want my family to see them until they get them for Christmas. On thing I do every year for my nephew Jason and his wife Kristy is add something to their boys' stockings. My mom made Landon's stocking back in 2004 to match his mommy and daddy's, so my sister Julie has helped make the stockings and then I have done all the handwork and Snowmen on them. This year was fun to do, the family got their first travel trailer this summer and had a few adventures, so I made a travel trailer our of felt and blanket stitched it on. I even used my Nestabilities to make the circles for the wheels!!
