Holiday Quickies Series: #1 Peppermint Joy


One of the things that I love about the holidays is actually doing my holiday crafting right in the thick of the season–I know. Nuts, right?!

Yeah, yeah…I sometimes like to think I will get it all done ahead… Christmas in July and all that yadda yadda…. Aaaaaand… that’s as far as I get. *chuckle*

For some reason, the idea of that kinda takes all the wind outta’ my holiday sails… And, I just can’t bring myself to go that route.

I wanna be sloshin’ nog, with a fire roaring, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on the tele, tree lights twinkling, snow falling, carols reverberating through the house, munchin’ on my mama’s sugar cookies (which happen to be the best ever in the history of the world) while I’m bustin’ out holiday tags, cards, gifty things and whatnot… Good times, good times…!

At any rate, as per my annual tradition  (*cough*cough*–procrastination…), I just made some Christmas 5MQ’s that I adore and figured I’d share.  Cuz, who knows… mebbe a few of you are like me… in the thick of it… ;)

I’m on deck with a video over at the Hero Arts Blog today!


Link: Nicest Thoughts, Video

It’s been more than a little busy lately on the home front so I haven’t had a lot of time to create anything just for fun to share here on the blog lately, but recently I created a clear card design with video for Hero arts featuring some new 2014 images from their soon-to-be-released catalog!  I *really* like the crisp geometric pattern and bold graphic look of the Tiny Flags background!

I hadn’t made a clear card in eons, so I had a lot of fun! :)

Hope you enjoy the video!




Note: I used a washi tape pattern that is no longer being made, but there are lots of pretty ones that could be substituted for this design.
