Some more Christmas goodies...

And this will be the last....I promise! :) I am so ready to not be posting about Christmas! I took all of my trees down last night and it is just so depressing not to have all the lights glowing around the house! BUT, I think I was ready! 

Today I am showing the last three gifts I made for a customer for her to give at Christmas to fellow teachers.The first one is an anti-bacterial soap holder. I found this video from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts and her instructions were so amazing!! I had to keep mine simple because of the "budget" but I can imagine the possibilities! 
 Side view....
 Inside view....

I like how they came out, even if they were very simple & plain! And next I have some (more!!) ornaments with vinyl monograms but these were packaged for gift giving!
I just made a pillow out of tissue paper and bagged 'em & tagged 'em! LOL!! I crack myself up!! :) Anyhoo...the last project was literally a last minute, quick project! She had asked for a candy jar among all the other orders & somehow it didn't make it on my "to-do" list! Oops!! So she was picking everything up in like an hour so I whipped this up real quick! Sometimes the faster you crank it out, the better! I know sometimes I over think my work but when you are on a time just flows!! (Disclaimer**** Ok, seriously!! This is only true SOMETIMES!! But it sounds good right???!!!)
I wrapped the jar I had in my stash with some purple & green paper (she wanted mainly purple) and then added some lace purple ribbon, some scallops & a chipboard "T"! She loved it! And so did I!! :)

Hope everyone had a great weekend and I sure hope you got to join us in the 100 cart hop over the weekend!

Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥
