Closer & Closer To Us

Christmas is getting closer, folks! As always things really move quick & hastily around this time of year. For the past couple of years, we made a decision to slow down, simplify. And so this year, mostly out of necessity and because its just smart for us, we're taking it easy. No scheduling overload, no gifts overload, no expensive gifts or unnecessary expenses. After all, what is the reason for the season, right?

Here are some tags/ornament cards I've made in the last few days to decorate one of our Christmas tree which will be our first Victorian-inspired tree. It'll have pink lights, pink glass balls, pink fiber and these. I'll post others as I finish.

The handle on this one was from a gift bag that broke. It made its way to my work table and it clicked! I could use that as a hanger. It truly happened that way.

I used the large scallop punch I just recently got for this one and a broken ponytail holder (the pearls). The background is package tissue from the $ store, which I love, by the way.

I got inspiration from Alice W. at Romantic Thoughts for this one. I loved heir and I kinda like the way mine turned out. These will all go on one of our Christmas trees.

Stop by Ink In My Paws , Nola is having a giveaway that can't be missed and neither can't her blog. She's a very talented lady. The recent visits from deer are cool too.

Blessings to you all,
