Christmas Must Be in the Air

I know November is not even done but I seem to be in the spirit of it all this year, much earlier than I have in the past.  I've been crafting up some holiday projects and thought I would share them with you.

A few weeks ago at Pointer Scrapbooking  I took a class with the every talentated Virgina Nebel (if you get a chance to take a class with her - do it!  She is full of incredible knowledge).  In this class she taught us several techniques in brushed velvet glitter. It was so much fun!

I also put together my quilt from that swap I did on All Things Tim yahoo group. We got back some fabulous pieces. I didn't quite put it together as was planned because I tried to balance out the colours. There is so much technique and vintage goodness on this quilt.  I can't wait to sit down and make my "regular" Tim quilt.

A few years ago I made an advent calendar for my son using the Karen Foster kit. I was cleaning out my room and  I had an extra calendar sitting around, so I  decided to make one for my nephew. These are so much fun to make and you can use up all those extra bits and pieces of Christmas ephemera to decorate.

I think I will tackle Christmas cards next!!!!


  1. beautiful cards! sounds like a fun but messy class. I love the KF advent kit - such a great gift :)
