Annual Christmas Craft Party

Time sure flies. I can't believe it's almost Christmas! Of course I have not nearly as much done as I would like but I know I am not alone there. Back in November we had our annual Christmas craft party. I think this was the 4th year and as usual it was a great success!

Each year we make 2 to 3 crafts, have a lovely pot luck lunch and do a Greedy Santa gift exchange. It's a great way to get into the holiday spirit!

This year we made glittered cookie cutter ornaments designed by Heidi and fabric yo-yo trees designed by me.

We decorated in fun pastels and a good time was had by all. As a gift I made everyone fabric pin cushions to use for our sewing project.

I put the cushions into vintage tins and wrapped them in tissue.

This is the glittered bunny cookie cutter ornament I made.

All the glittered cookie cutters came out great! Thanks to Heidi for the idea and to Amy for the photo.

And these are the yo-yo trees. I plan to put up tutorials for both these and the pin cushions in the new year. The party was a great success and I am already looking forward to next year!

And because there aren't enough cute baby photos on this blog:

My too cute nephew on his Baptism. :)

Until the next . . .

I think I might be addicted to the cookie cutter ornaments. :) Yours turned out great, and the party sounds so much fun! I'm having a little crafting party here on Saturday night and I can't wait!
