Christmas in the Cabin

We had a very busy week last week...my Dad came in from Florida for Thanksgiving, craft show at LaSalle high school, and then the first annual Christmas in the Cabin at Minges/Lohman. What a great start to the holiday season.

Fresh greenery and just about anything to fill our box.
Alison needed a little help with hers but Emily and I were getting into the groove of things.

Our finished boxes...what a fun mother/daughters afternoon!

Emily needed a baby card for a friend of hers. This cute trio of ducks makes the perfect card...simple and cute!

still crafting...

I am still busy crafting for my next craft show. My most favorite thing to make are little Hershey nugget treats. I love all the little images I have to make them.
The candy cane and tree are from the North Pole stamp set in amuse studio's November collection. You won't be able to get it for much longer so shop before November 27th!
The reindeer is from ArtC from Michaels.
Sentiment is from Holiday Cheer and I masked off the "to you" from the Happy Hour set.

snow sweet!

I found these cute snowman dishes at Michaels. They are actually a small baking dish but I filled them with candy and tied them up with ribbon. A sweet treat for that special someone!

These tiny treats are so cute! I wrapped a mini girahadelli chocolate in washi tape and then slid them into this tiny treat bag. Added a sentiment and what a cute sweet treat you have!!
Thanks to my SIL, Melissa, for sending me the ckear little treat bags

Close to our hearts

It is a bittersweet day for some of us in the Roell house. 
A dear friend of Emily's whom I got to know very well is moving to California. I saw this ornament at Target and decided to stamp the two hearts and dotted line on it so she will always think of us when she hangs it on her tree or where ever in her new home.

Felicia is very fond of puns so I used our amuse stamp set to personalize it a bit on the back. 

We will miss you but...you will always be close in our hearts. 
Wishing you all the best  Felicia!

sweet wishes

I found these gable boxes at Micheals on their clearance aisle and thought I could make something fun for my craft shows. Inside there is a hot chocolate mix, cookies, and a candy cane. I used amuse studio landscape die for the snowbank and the sentiment is from amuse also. The trees are from a punch. I stamped the wishes on the spoon handle and tied it to the top of the box. A very cute gift for your teachers, friends, co-workers...

Give thanks

Bought this cute guy at the colerain craft show over the weekend. It's a handpainted gourd and they were flying off the table. So glad I was able to catch one for my holiday decorating!

Let it snow....

...but not today!
I created these cute paint tubs full of winter hershey kisses. 
So fun with the ribbons on the side.

As we learned last week that amuse studio will be closing in a few weeks, I will still be using their product in my stamping. As you can see from this card I still have some long ago retired gingham cardstock that makes an adorable baby card! The baby crib is actually a retired Amuse Artstamp woodblock stamp. I loved amuse from day one and will continue to love it once it is gone.

a little cup of fun

Made these cute snowman treats from inspiration from my friend Seleise....
I had a face stamp so it was easy to stamp and color the nose. Then I added washi tape to the rim and punched a circle for the top...added candy inside and the flower to top it off.

Here is Seleise's snowman cup...he is adorable...thanks for sharing and letting me use your idea.
