Lazy Blogger

I've been extremely lazy at blogging this week. I've just been trying to get everything done for Christmas and I finally accomplished it today. Everything is bought, made and wrapped. And it feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. We had Christmas with the kids today. Dan drove in from Boston and today was the only day that Tricia could come until late next week. So we had a nice afternoon opening presents and watching football and eating of course!

I've been working on some extra things and some I didn't take pictures of. What was I thinking. I made 3 final Christmas cards yesterday and forgot to take picture of any of them. I did make about 40 Hershey Christmas trees. I gave these to co-workers, table friends at a holiday dinner and used them in place of gift card holders. They were great fun to make!

You can find the directions to make these at QBee's Quest.

I embellished the outside with ribbon. On the originals at QBee's Quest she added a bow at the top. I made a small tag from a star punch or ornament punch and stamped a greeting. I put the tree in a baggie and tied the bag and tag with baker's twine to finish off.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas. Tomorrow we travel to visit family. Hope your holidays are wonderful!
