Here in the backwoods of Maine, my house is like Grand Central Station on a normal day. During the holidays there are even more people in and out of the house. We have a lighted pond in the front yard, that we keep clear all winter for ice skating. Many a night friends will stop in and we will light a bonfire and skate under the lights. Which, of course, means hot chocolate and cookies - and I like sending something home with everyone. This year I'm focusing on 'paper'. Perhaps it's because of the simplicity. I have thought alot about what Christmas means and how far we have gotten away from the true meaning of Christmas. So, this year my goal is 'simplicity'. Simple things from the heart. Hopefully it will make everyone smile.

On to my projects...
K. Andrew Art Stamps
I cut 8 3" circles and folded them in quarters. Attaching 4 to each side of another 3" circle. Added some shiny curling ribbon and some embellishments and you get a really cute ornament!
Here is the stamp set I used on all my projects. Click here to order the Coffee & Tea Tag-a-long Set.
My next project is a gift box. I had so much fun making this! Of course it will be filled with chocolate gifts!
The "Everything is Better with Chocolate" card holds a pack of hot cocoa. (or a gigantic chocolate chip cookie) Another "Sweet Thing" tag adorns the front of the box.
The next decoration is a little triangle gift box that holds a couple candy kisses. These are fun to make and fun to give! You can embellish them however you like!
