Red Nosed Reindeer

I've been busy quilling - mostly making reindeer, I had an order for 6 reindeer cards which I finished last night and they sure are cute, if I do say so myself. I have an order for 20 reindeer embellishments; although that number may be lower, she's checking her Christmas card list. My coworker would like 2 reindeer cards and I'd like to make extra to make into ornaments. For the embellishments I would normally put a light layer of glue on the back and place it on a piece of vellum but I'm going to try something different. I purchased a spray called Stiffen Stuff, it's for fabric but can be used on paper so I'm going to give it a try and see if it's quicker to do than my glue method - I'll post back once I try it, back to the reindeer.


It's not even Thanksgiving yet

Yesterday I picked up my son from after school care and as we were driving up our street, a few houses from ours we saw a house with Christmas lights on the bushes. I couldn't believe it, then today they had added lights around the front door and as I glanced over I saw through the curtains a Christmas tree all lit up - I honestly can't believe they already had their tree up. It's not even Thanksgiving and people are hanging lights and putting up tree's - there is even one radio station that has been playing Christmas tunes for the past two weeks, I'm not ready for this. I still have to buy a turkey....let alone think about a tree and hanging stockings.

In honor of Thanksgiving and as an item in a fall contest I have created table name cards. Set of 12, hand cut and folded; with floral and paisley coordinating paper on the backs. On the fronts of each card I have a thin chocolate brown ric rac and 3 fall colored fringed flowers - I think they turned out so nice. I went to a scrapbook crop this past Saturday and one of the women there kept trying to take them, she really liked them; that made me feel good. 



I've been neglecting my blog, so sorry; I wish I were Wonder Woman but I'm not and I just can't get everything done that needs to be. Halloween this year was strange in our area, not many trick or treaters out and not many people with their lights on giving out candy and I even took my son to another neighborhood that boasts to have a happening time. Oh well, there's always next year.

This months contest theme for the Paper Twirlies etsy team of course was Halloween, I'm thrilled to say I won again but it was by default; there were no other entries. I know everyone is so busy, and I probably shouldn't have done one either but it turned out cute and it's sitting on my desk at work; at least till Monday. So the winner is Halloween Paper Clip Holder, with it's purple polka dot base and oh so cute bats, pumpkin and ghost. Hope you like it, I've made paper clip holder's in the past but they were all flowers so this was a little different but it turned out pretty nice. I'm going to also do some holiday/christmas one's since this one turned out so cute. 

Well I've got lots of quilling to do still, I'm going to put Life On Mars on the computer while I get creative and have fun. Don't forget to turn your clocks back tonight before going to bed, hope I remember.
