It seems as though it comes faster each year...and I never have enough time to do all that I really want to do for the Holidays. I really need to start gearing up for next Christmas on December 26th ! 

I wanted to share with you one of my projects I have been working on - now that I have a new camera. Unfortunately my new camera does not seem to want to be friends with my computer, so I am having a difficult time with the uploads. But hopefully it will get better.

This green satin ribbon Christmas tree is actually  PIN CUSHION  that I made using a Styrofoam cone, wrapped in Green felt, glued to a small wooden block. Then, I cut 5 inch lengths of 1 1/2" wide forest green satin ribbon, made loops out of them and attached them in layers (starting at the bottom and working up ) by first using a straight pin and then added a bit of hot glue under each one....I then added some 3 1/2" stick pins that I have made in Christmas colors, as "ornaments" I was going to glue a lot of BLING on it,  but since this is for a Cricut swap, I decided to leave it rather plain and let the recipient decorate the tree however she would like.

Next, you will see a few of the small gift bags I have made for another Cricut Message Board swap - we made gift bags with matching tags and I also did some cards for a few of them.  Thanks for "tuning in"  and dont forget to comment for the free prize drawing this weekend !


  1. Love the Christmas tree pincushion. I sure would love to win those embossing folders too. thank you for the opportunity to win them.

  2. Terrific projects. Love the bag, cards and the ribbon pin cushion. All super cute.

  3. That Christmas tree is super cute. It's a great idea for my parents who are tired of putting up their tree now. It still gives a little decoration.
