Christmas Cards

Send out my cards today. I made them all two tone pop-ups with a tree motif. However I forgot to take pictures, so you will only get these pix of the card for my parents in law that I am not sending out because we will see them for Christmas.


Last Minute 4th of July Crafting

I can’t believe it is the 4th of July and this is my first post in 2011. Was I sleeping or something. I guess so.
The craft parties are going steady. At least 3 people always attend – not too bad. But it is always a surprise how many will be there.
This year we are celebrating 4th of July at home, grilling out. And I had no decorations 🙁
So I came up with a last minute chain of origami stars. I made them out of Marie Claire and Elle magazine pages. I chose pages by overall color so I would have red, white and blue stars.

Then I stung them onto some wool and attached them to the inside of out front window. The picture is not so good. I am not use it is still easy to distinguish the different colors after I added them alternating to the string as good as when they were in matching color piles. But I still think it looks good.
