I'm back!

Where have I gone-- no where, just had a lot going on the last few weeks, including moving to a new house, that we have begun some remodeling of, school is crazy, and it is the holiday season too... but I did manage to start crafting again. Last weekend I was an altering fool, creating Christmas gifts for co-workers and friends. So this week I will be posting some of the creations, and on with the show...

This is the adorable treat package I made for Karsyn's preschool class. I wrapped a 4" wide by 12" tall piece of kraft brown cardstock around a cello bag filled with red M&M's. For the eyes I punched pieces of white and black cs, added a red punch-out nose and drew in the mouth. The antlers are made from strip of brown curled by wrapping them around a pencil.

On the back of the package, I attached a poem from Teaching with Heart that reads

Rudolph has a job to do

Every Christmas Eve it is true

His nose will always light the way

For Santa's and his tiny sleigh

But if his nose should ever go out,

Don't whine, or cry, or yell, or pout

Take out this bag and use a bit

From Rudolph's Nose Repair Kit!

Enjoy, and thanks for being so patient with me!
