Well I haven't had much time to make any cards lately, but I do have something to share. I needed 12 thank you gifts for Christmas and they needed to be affordable (that's politically correct talk for "cheap"!). So I decided to put together some coffee mugs. They each have a packet of hot chocolate and a packet of flavored coffee in them. Then I added peppermint sticks and 4 chocolate dipped spoons for them to stir into their drink. I know the chocolate spoons are so 2002, but I liked the idea so I went with it anyway. I then used a new stamp set that I got from MFT with a matching die to make the tags. I was going to wrap each mug in cellophane and tie the ribbon and tag at the top, but I forgot to buy it. So I wrapped the ribbon and tag around the handle -- and now they can see the coffee flavors inside the mug.
This was one of my favorite coffee mugs that I picked up. The Santa Claus is just too cute. Shopping for cute and different coffee mugs was actually my favorite part of putting these together.
A few "Pieces of Me": I organize already organized things because I think it's fun. I enjoy paper crafting (scrapbooking, card making, gluing paper, coloring pictures, and so on). I am teaching myself how to sew. It frustrates me to no end. (But, I enjoy it quite a bit.)
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
