"My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown, but it's silver when it's wet,
And all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet."
-Shel Silverstein

Where does the time go?

So once again, I have disappeared for a while. I haven't been doing as much crafting as normal, but I think I was on crafting/quilting overload from the memory quilts. It averaged to like a quilt every week or 10 days or something. I guess I needed downtime. (Okay that and, as Deb likes to point out, I have some other pretty awesome things that are taking some of my attention!!) :)

Anyway, I am posting some things that I made for Christmas and haven't gotten around to yet.

I made these hand sanitizers for my neighbors. I did them for my son's teachers last year and they were quite a hit, so I decided the neighbors would like them this year. I'd tell you if they liked them, but they havent' mentioned it.

I made this little boxy cosmetic bag for my friend Kim. I just mailed it today, though, so she hasn't seen it yet! I lined the fabric inside with iron on vinyl!! So her make up goodies won't mess up the fabric. It was the first time I used it and I love it. So much fun.
Then I filled it with gross candy that she likes. Shhhh... don't tell my son. :)
I gave these coin purses to the girls in my family with a little Walmart gift card inside. They weren't as neat as the etched personalized glasses I did last year, but they were cute. I found them here
And check this out:
Yup- that was one of my Christmas gifts from my parents! ONE OF. Yeah, I got more. I got a garage door opener too! (and lots of other stuff) Do you know how awesome that is?!

Anyway, I have sewn a little and I am excited to try the quilting function on here. Should be lots of fun!

Till next time... which is averaging out about a month... ;)
