Every year I vow I'm going to be more organized for the winter holidays and then life gets  ... hectic, yeah let's go with hectic lol.  We've had snow. The lovely scallop trail was made by the dog, I think she did a good job of it. My Christmas present is a snow plow contract :D.

DD made her first set of multiple cards and envelopes (using the kreate-a-lope). All I did was punch a few snowflakes and give her the information.

I've been making small gifts and sorting through my bead stash. Don't know why I like to sort when I'm behind the 8 ball of time, ok, it's probably a feeble attempt to maintain a facade of control but it's so much nicer on my golden barge sailing on De Nial. The beaded round bit is an i-top snap daddy that I covered with muslin and then beaded. It can snap onto the bobby pins or rings (sold separately). I bought the earring wires a few years ago, the picture doesn't show they are anodized a lovely blue green color.

My regular workspace is covered with Christmas cards which I can't show yet. I'm told they aren't late if they arrive by Jan. 6. Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

If you are curious about WOYWW or want to see what other folks are up to head over to Julia's Stamping Ground. Better yet, join in the fun too :D.

Very nice jewels, lovely card, and I love to look at snow pictures. I am in NC, and not much of the stuff here. It is rare that it snows, and when it does, it is gone by morning or even that same day.

The dog path is so clever. I know the feeling of sorting in an attempt to get some level of control. Wishing you a lovely snowy christmas.

I know what you mean about trying to sort stuff out when you really do not have time. In my case, it is a desperate attempt to be organised enough to be able to find each piece of paper or other piece of crafting stuff instantly rather than having to search every box, every corner, every space under everything. I must get it done before I start on the cards for 2011 - maybe... perhaps... if I have time ....

Lovely cards anyway. The best cards are created in a messy workspace in a panic.
