9 Days to Go

Things are getting quite hectic! I'm planning a big craft day in Ryan's classroom, so that is taking up a lot of my time. My girlfriend and I prepped 27 milk carton gingerbread houses that the kids will be decorating. That, and about 5 trips to AC Moore has me pretty tired. I supposed Strep and a sinus infection have something to do with it.

I posted a fun project at the MMM blog today. Here is the sneak peek.



You can see the rest of it here.

Here is the project I did this week for Emma's. I made this little gift set to hold some candy that I'll give one of Ryan's teachers.





That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by!

I always love to see your little projects Anabelle. They always make me smile. Your card is beautiful. I, too, LOVE everything vintage, especially sheet music. Thanks for sharing your goodies! Also, I've been meaning to tell you that I met Joe Biden when he was here a few months ago. Even got him to sign my copy of his book for me so I have a personalized copy now. It was one of the most exciting moments ever!
Happy Holidays!

Girl - I absolutely LOVE your projects. All of them. So beautiful! And I love the gift items you made for Emma's.

27 Milk Cartons! OH MY! Santa should be leaving you something extra special under the tree this year!!! Don't forget to take your camera! Those kids are soooo lucky! I know that teacher sure is and probably knows it.

Annabelle, so sorry to hear you've been ill. Certainly no fun ever but especially at this time of the year. Looks like your creativity hasn't suffered a bit though. Beautiful projects as always. Hugs, D

Sorry you aren't feeling well. I think the stress of getting everything done seems to get our immune systems down, I feel a bug coming on as well. Your projects are stunning as always! =)

I just saw your cute card over at MM right before I came here. VERY cute project!! I scored some old music sheets a few weeks back at the thrift store and I can't wait to use them. They are almost too pretty to cut up though!
