I’ve been busy working on a number of projects in the last couple days.  My husband’s head is spinning because every time I sit down I’ve got something different in my hands.  Here’s a quick project that I finished tonight.  It is a Christmas gift tag and it will be so cute on the top of a “brown paper package” for the holidays.

It is a pattern by Whimsicals, from their book “Cabin Fever,” which uses Paintsticks.  It was the first time I used Paintsticks and my only thought on it is that there is a dry time.  This is not so great for those of us who want instant gratification.

Ok, so here’s a thought…only 3.5 months until Christmas… I attempted the –get everything made and wrapped in a week– last year and I don’t recommend it.  So this is me just giving you a friendly reminder to not get so stressed around the big month–do some early preparation!  Then you will have more time to relish the real reason for the season.
