It's time for another fabulous Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop. This month we are focusing on Christmas. It's just a wee bit over a month away and, if you are like me, you have plenty of gifts and cards to design and make for family and friends. I have no doubt that you will find plenty of inspiration from those of us sharing our Christmas projects with you. So, grab a cup of your favorite beverage of choice, sit back and see what's in store. Enjoy!
Tonight I'll be joining a group of local Stampin' Up! Demonstrators for our annual Christmas dinner and gift exchange. This year I decided to make a matching desk ensemble. This mini note pad, in it's festive holder, will fit nicely on anyone's desk.
Stamp Set: Back to Basics Alphabet; Ink: Mossy Meadow; Cardstock: Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper, Mint Macaron, Real Red; Accessories & Tools: Triple Banner Punch, Iced Rhinestones, Gold Baker's Twine, 3-1/2" x 5" Mini Writing Tablet (Tree House Pad & Paper, Inc.), SNAIL Permanent Adhesive, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer
My second project is the other half of the desk ensemble. As you can see, it's a calendar and sticky note holder. The easel card is so much fun to make and it is so easy. I'm planning to make this set for the three people who work in the office here where I live. I always give them a little something I've made every Christmas.

My final project, also 3-D, is a little tealight that sits on the Wondrous Wreath. I'm sure I saw this somewhere and it stuck in my mind to try it. Although, I don't recall who specifically came up with this, I do thank them. I saw several in my snooping on the Internet. I think I just might add a name to it and use them as place cards on my Christmas table.
