Holiday Crafting Round-Up.

These are some smalls gifts that I made for friends at Christmas time.

Embroidery and colored pencil on moleskin notebook.  I used the Tara McPherson pattern (Artist Series #10) from Sublime Stitching.

Embroidered fabric and bristol paint chip on moleskin notebook.  I used the Handmade Nation pattern from Sublime Stitching.

Next up are some ATCs that I made on New Year's Eve.  As we were taking a friend to the airport shuttle at 2:30 AM, there was no wild and crazy party for us.  I know, I lead an exciting life.

The last card of 2009- Random

 Watercolors and embroidery floss on Bristol.  Sam aka Sunnysidey was my inspiration for this one.  Everything she makes looks so bright and fun!

1st card of 2010- Banana Pancakes

 Paper clippings, beads and embroidery floss on Bristol.  The stack of banana pancakes is the piece of junk mail, so this card officially carries the Coupon Series over on into 2010.  I'm having a lot of fun with these.  Remember- waste not, want not.  Although that was my motto for 2009, I think I'm going to stick by it for this next year.  It's a good one.

If you don't understand this card, maybe this will help :)

2nd card of 2010- Fetch

Paper clippings and thread on Bristol.
This is also part of the Coupon Series as the picture of the dog came from junk mail.  I made the little newspaper from a few scraps from a local newspaper.
I love the headline.

It's soooo true.  Santa Rosa is home to glorious beers.  My favorite being Pliny the Elder, at the Russian River Brewing Co.

Thanks for looking.  Have a craftastic day!

p.s.  Have you entered the giveaways?!  There's two, sign up for both!

Hahahaha, it's funny that you should say that the Random card was inspired by my stuff, because I saw it on your flickr and went "Oh WOW" then followed the bloggaroonie link and here I am. :-)

Oh, I do love those ATCs! I've only done two, very quickly, for an artist family member. Now you've got me wondering if I can squeeze in some time for a couple sooner than later. ;)

Thank you so much! Once you've done a few more, you'll make time for it. Its very addicting. And its a nice change from stitching as you can play with it a lot more as you go.
