Where in the world is Patti J.???

Hello out there!

Here it is, Friday, already!  Mixed bag of emotions: Woot woot!  I love having DH home on the weekends! And....YIKES!  Where did another week go?  Does anyone else feel like that? 

I've been busy finishing up a scrapbook for a lady to give as a Christmas gift - have about 8 pages left to do on that, and then today's fun project, which I am taking to UPS in about 30 minutes, I hope!

I found this darling idea on Heidi's blog, and just had to case it.  Yes, I copied and stole everything!  lol... This is going to Colorado, to be put into staff mailboxes at the business DD works at.  Hope they like them!  Be sure to check out Heidi's blog - she has a LOT of really quick and fun ideas to help stuff some stockings or mailboxes!  Thanks for sharing, Heidi!!!



The tags are all stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, and the stamps are from the Amuse "Cool Yule" set.  Got all the ribbon and card stock this week while out shopping, and I'm sorry that I don't know the vendors.  However, I do know that the 'sweet' wrappers around the candy are from the Memory Box Yuletide collection.

Surely your shopping is all done, your decorations are all up, and your baking and gift wrapping are done, but if not, I hope that this weekend helps you complete those tasks!  We have a busy weekend planned, as we started Christmas shopping yesterday :)  Sort of a tradition for us the last few years!  We look forward to our annual 'date night'!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

These are adorable, and will surely be a hit at the office of your DD!
Patti, hope your Christmas is Merry. Seems like everyone feels overwhelmed and rushed this year, wonder what that is, do we try to do too much? Looking forward to doing nothing after Christmas except rest and enjoy the rest of the holiday, hope you can do the same.

Hugs
Sue
