My Christmas Mail ..

Hello my dear friends,

it has been a busy weekend for me.
 I finally got some things done and I am so happy about it.

I spent a lot of time getting my little gifts ready for mailing. My 'Christmas To Come' giveaway gift is also all wrapped up for it's journey. It is a little later than I would have liked it to have been but unfortunately sometimes things happen and others therefore don't always work out the way we plan them and this was one of them.

All my little gifts were wrapped up nicely in old music sheets with seam binding bows. I created some neat Christmassy tags from manila shipping tags that I coffee stained and then embellished with a lovely sparkly snowflake.

 My `Christmas To Come` gift too is all fancied up and it is now on it's way to Betty-Jean. I hope the mailman can get it to her in time for Christmas.

I wrapped this the gift in parcel paper which I had stamped with a pine cone in champagne colored ink. It is so sublte and lovely. Seam binding all tied up into a bow and a snowflake tag were also a must for this gift. And as I am writting this, all my gifts are in the postoffice waiting to start their journey.

I am hoping that all my gifts will arrive where they are meant to be on Christmas Day so they will bring a little smile to someone's face. Not saying who because then the surprise would be spoilt.  Hopefully a lesson learnt for me ... next year I am starting in September.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Ha... I am starting after Christmas the cards for next year! Time is always going so quick and who knows, when I have created my cards ;-)?

  3. I'm sure everyone on the receiving end of one of these pretties will be absolutely delighted! Even your wrapping is a gift.

  4. So much thought and kindness has gone into each one of these hand made gifts! Gorgeous tags with snowflake cut-outs too!

  5. So schön verpackt!! Ich bin begeistert

  6. What a beautifully wrapped gift. You are sooooooooo talented and have "the eye" for beauty.

    I, too, must start earlier next year. I guess September isn't quite early enough. Who knew!

    Merry Christmas, Karen!

  7. Karen,
    You do everything with such creative love. These packages are so pretty the recipients won't want to open them. Now that you can check this accomplishment off the list enjoy and take a nap lol!
    Have a great week.

  8. If I received a present wraped like this I don't think I could make myself open it. It is just to beautiful.

  9. These are simply beautiful, dear Karen. Have a lovely day.
