I've Found My Christmas Spirit

Hello stitching friends....

I just wanted to drop by and share a few finishes with you. I've been busy working on exchanges and a few of them have reached their new homes.

Here is a cutie patootie little penguin I stitched for a card exchange.  I'm really starting to enjoy making cards.  I don't really scrapbook anymore but I've had fun putting my scrapbook supplies to use.  I'm thinking I might even finish some of the pieces I keep for myself as cards.  Then I can use the card/photo holders I found at Kohls to display them. 

Below is my Secret Santa Pals exchange.  I had so much fun shopping for the Christmas items I found.  This package found it's new home in Arizona with Meg. 

I have to give credit to my friends Karen and Michele.  I pilfered their pin cushion idea.  They were kind enough to give me a cute little pin cushion at the Pals Fall Fling.  I loved it so much that I decided to brush the dust off my sewing machine and give them a whirl.  Thanks for the inspiration girls. 

And last but not least....                           
Here is a little ornament I included with the Secret Santa exchange.  It's the first ornament that I've stitched over one.  (Thanks again Karen, the over one queen :-)

I have definitely found my Christmas spirit.  After visiting my house 4 days in a row the UPS man made the comment yesterday that someone was going to have a Merry Christmas. 

I hope that you are finding your Christmas Spirit this holiday season.  Someone once told me that Christmas is for kids.....all the more reason to never grow up.

Keep on stitchin' on,

What a cute package you put together. Love your over 1 ornament. I only stitch over one when it is absolutely necessary, never through choice.
