Christmas catch-up

Phew!!! back again at last. It has been a busy few weeks I say it every year but I really must start!! Problem is that Mikael's birthday is the end of October and Clive's beginning November, and Mikael's parties take a lot of work!! I was thinking about doing a few of the Christmas projects I didn't get time to do now and stash them till next Christmas! Probably won't happen I still have projects from last year to finish, my Cornwall 08 brag book and Mikael's birthday album are still waiting to be finished! I think I'll add a list to the sidebar and spend a couple of weeks finishing off projects before starting new ones! Better get a shift on Alix's birthday is in a few!!! always something to!!
So what have I been up to? well term ended (quicker than I!!) and we had the Teacher cards and presents. I made about 15 of these little chocolate boxes, my mum asked for some too! The box project came from Split coast stampers the 2-5-7-10 box tutorial I altered the measurements slightly to fit onto an A4 sheet of card (using stash only!!) I think these boxes are ideal for all year gifts, I might make a few to stash for emergency birthdays!
Anyway 2 teachers got these and a couple of friends too.

Somehow I have either lost or forgot to photograph some of the cards I made for Christmas! whoops!! Mikael's class teacher got a matching brown set (can't find the photo!)

I made 3 calendars for my aunts and uncles mad rush to get those done and mum wants one too! I had planned to do some coaster albums but just ran out of time. You can see the calendars in the slide show on the sidebar.

For the Mikael's friends I made paperclip bookmark cards and magic reindeer dust, no piccie of the card but the magic dust is in the slide show! For My friends children I made father Christmas kits which contained magic dust, a carrot, a cookie and a thank-you note. (piccie in slide show) and there were dozens more cards, I ended up making batches of matching cards using the same layout and materials with different images, lots of cute mice!

I will be putting the family photos of Christmas on my other blog HERE if you would like to see them (this post is getting way too long to add them!!!)

I am off to do the rounds I haven't commented on blogs for soooooo long I have been reading though.
