A Christmas Crafting night!

OK, so I take 2 hours vacation and ditch work to go see Blindside with my son and parents this afternoon. What an inspiring movie! If you haven't seen it yet, go see it.
On my way home from the movie I got a ticket for not stopping at a stop sign. I saw the lights flashing and thought what the heck did I do. I don't even remember going through this particular stop sign, that I have gone through many many times. I guess I was on autopilot!
CRAP!!! I haven't had a ticket in years! Like 20 I think??? Bummer!!! Hmmm, was I being punished for taking a last minute vacation from work????

I didn't let that stop me from having a good evening. After dinner and walking the dog, I got busy on some bags and boxes. I actually have had 3 orders for the bags! I certainly won't get rich from the orders, but it is nice to know that people like my work. This was my last order of 8 bags. I found the poinsetta's at Beverly's. The paper is from all sorts of sources and the pretty ribbon is from Stampin' Up.
Here are more of the 3 tier boxes that I am really liking!!!! Julia sent me this lovely paper and I bought this gold ribbon at Costco a few years ago. I found the bells and gift tag on clearance at Pier 1 after Christmas last year. I am really liking the gold!

I just had to put in a pic of Eva as she lounges in my leopard print robe. She is such a sweet girl! Just love her!!!!


  1. That gold turned out awesome Tina. You did a great job. And Eva ~ what a cutie, every picture of her is just darling .... so glad Zach got such a great dog! Hugs, Julia

  2. I love Eva too. That face! Who wouldn't love her??? So sorry to hear about the ticket. When I worked in New Orleans and lived about 40 minutes away, I worked overtime one weekend, had brunch with a friend after, and then got a speeding ticket on the way home. The ticket ate up all my overtime. Ugh! Sometimes that happens. Oh well! Things could be worse. You had a lovely nite of crafting. That makes everything lovely and so much better. Blessings to you and yours, Tammy
