So - Sherry and I made a pact before the start of the new year that we WOULD get together every month on or about the 25th with the specific purpose of creating things for Christmas. We often have good intentions that go by the wayside, but we actually really did get together yesterday for our January meet-up! Advent calendars were the project du jour, and here's the prototype:
And - since this fortnight's Jingle Belles challenge is to use inchies and I already had everything out anyway - I made a card:
I went in search of a 1" square punch last week, because it is SO difficult to get little tiny squares all nice and even with a paper trimmer, but I was unsuccessful - guess I'll have to order one online... Ignore the slightly wonky ones on the card, k? I really did try!
And there's that! I have to get to work now, since the bills don't pay themselves, but I'm glad that Sherry and I spent the day doing something creative and following through on a "resolution" of sorts! Happy Hump Day!
