Happy Holiday!!

Happy Holidays to you ALL!!  Welcome to my blog!!  I love the Christmas gives me the opportunity to shower everyone in my family and give back to those in need too.  I do these things all year round but there is something extra special about the holiday season that fills the heart with JOY and to be able to help those less fortunate is always a plus!!

So my family's holiday gathering this year served as a two for one event!!  We had time to spend chatting it up with one another, being creative making ornaments AND fill these boxes to be donated to the inner-city youth at my nephews Alma mater!!  What joy!!

I wanted to do something extra special for my family of four; we wore white tops with blue jeans and I made these ribbons using a file from The Cutting Cafe.  They came out super cute and really shows the versatility of this file!!

Never-mind my handwriting (LOL); I wanted to use this silver gel pen to write the sentiment but I just don't have the touch so its what it is! :o)

Here's a pic of all four:

I used some felt and a button pin so we could wear them on our shirts!!  INGENIOUS!!!

Here's how the Gift Bow looks without the added extras I did.

I absolutely love this file because it can be used for any occasion with the right paper!!  You could also create something like I did or use them to add to a flower pot on a stick!!  So many possibilities with just the one file....its amazing!!  So what do you think?  I hope you enjoyed my post for this 21st day of December and look forward to reading your comments!!

Until next time, Blessings & Craft Happiness!!
