Whether we are ready or not, Christmas is only a few short weeks away. If you are finding yourself in a crafty mood, you might want to make a card gift box and some notes, or some easy tea-light luminaries. The card box is made even easier with the pre-cut and ready-to-fold boxes from PaperCuts. The price is $19.99 for 25 boxes. These are so easy to decorate because they come flat for stamping and embellishing. This makes a great hostess gift to have on hand.
Now with the battery-operated tea-lights, we don't need to worry about an open flame near the vellum wall. The new tea-lights even have a simulated flicking flame which makes them look even that much more realistic. The cluster of luminaries on the lovely silver doily were a gift to me from a wonderful customer, JoAnne Lloyd.
