Holiday Spirit!

I know I'm a little late, but I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and will also have a Happy New Year!

It's been a VERY hectic holiday season for me, but with all my interest in scrapbooking and paper crafting, I thought I would try to personalize my contributions to this festive season. Unfortunately I didn't start to prepare far enough in advance this year (which I hope won't happen next year) but atleast I got a little taste for making my own Christmas creations!

I wanted to give everyone that I work closely with a little something to let them know that I was thinking of them, but didn't have much money to spend. Fortunately for me, one day I read a blog entry by Danielle Flanders at http://danielleflanders.blogspot.com/ called "Cookies-N-Cream" in her November entries and it inspired me to try and come up with my version of a festive holiday cookie present. She has a wonderful blog with great ideas that are so inspiring and unique (definitely stop in there if you haven't yet!). So here is my little take on the idea...
This is a cookie holder made with bristol board and covered with Christmas patterned paper. Inside the cookies are tucked into a festive holiday baggie and stapled to the back side of the holder. I made a variety of sugar cookies, oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip. They were the perfect treat for a workday snack!
I also successfully made some Christmas cards to send to family members. I used the Falala scrapbook pad by Making Memories to create and embellish the cards and they came out really nice but the most important part is that I had a lot of fun making them! Take a look...

Your cookie bag and holiday cards turned out so great! Thank you so much for your sweet note, I really appreciate all the nice things you said about my blog and work! I'm the same way, I never know what to give/make people for the holidays!
I hope you had a Merry Christmas and thanks again for your note. It made my day!
