Remember 2 smile today :)

Hi everyone!!!

Tomorrow I have some projects up on the Blue Moon blog and I wanted to share them here too! :)

 I am making some Christmas gifts this year :) 

I had some left over fabric from my living room curtains and I wanted to make some wall hangings for some friends and family ... so I bought some embroidery hoops and added some goodies from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com and voila! -- Christmas gifts :) 

 



















And I wanted to share -- my Christmas tree canvas I posted on my blog a few days ago -- Paper Made Bakery showcased it on their blog -- HERE!! I was so honored to be featured by them :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

You are so lucky I wanted to alter a big one for Christmas but I havent had time with getting things ready for 2 Bday partys for dd. Now I will wait and use one for a Valentine project. I might be able to create a small one that I have in my stash for an ornament later, will wait and see!
