Christmas tags 2010
Only 97 days left till Christmas! Haha!
I have been working on Christmas tags for my families Christmas gift exchange on my mom's side. I got some great idea's from here. We have done ours several different ways through the years, but I liked this idea for this year, I think we may stick with it for a few years! If you go to the link she makes tags, then they do a family draw and the name is already on the tag, then the family member can just add their own name to the tag and attach it to the gift! Since I am headed to see both my sister and brother and their families and I may even see Adam and Lacey I figured I may as well make up the tags and each person can pick a tag. This is just a few sneak peaks... don't want to ruin it for my family blog readers hehe! I'll post the finished ones when I get back from my trip. Yes, I worked on them yesterday in the hangar too! But my "table" was too small. See?
Next time I will take a larger table that I have.
Every September I begin thinking of Christmas. I do not like crowds, so my goal every year is to finish my Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving, then all I have to concentrate on is enjoying the Christmas season. I try to wrap the presents as I buy them. I usually come up with a color combination, then use that as the basis for my tags, cards, wrapping and decorating. I also like to try to do some homemade gifts, whether baking or crafting. This year I think it would be fun to include a winter dinner party, or a cookie exchange, or even a craft night with some of my favorite girls ;) we'll see if they are interested =D
My sweet hubby finished all his honey-do's and headed to the airport to play with his plane, I still have a little organizing left to do, but will need to concentrate on packing for 90 degree weather in San Antonio!
Have a great weekend!
