« Part 1329: Second Project Finished Part 1330 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 1331: Website Updated »

Today's post is going to be really quick. I spent the bulk of the weekend working on finishing up my three projects for the holiday issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and it needs to be shipped out today.  I had a great time making these three projects and I think that they will be well-received. 



I do feel like i just ran a marathon though, and I will look forward to a little break.  Since I am already posting late today, I will get right down to business . . . 



I finished three lovely Christmas cards that I cut on the scroll saw:





I also finished up my little Elf and Santa Jumping Jack ornaments.  I plan to do many more of these cute Jumping Jacks, and even though I kept the painting very simple for these, I want to do more detailed figures in the future for my painting friends and offer the pieces up as kits.  I think they will go over very well. :)







And finally, I finished the Layered Decoupage Gift Box Ornaments.  I love them with all the sparkly rhinestones attached. I think they are a wonderful project for the scroller who doesn't want to paint – or anyone for that matter! :)







I hope you like everthing.  The little details really made these projects go from nice to special! And nothing I did was difficult. 



I had a wonderful weekend and will talk more about it tomorrow.  But for now, I am running late and need to head out and get some things done.  I hope you all have a fabulous day today. It is bright and warm and sunny here in Nova Scotia.  A beautiful June day! 



Happy Monday to you all! :)

The ornaments are great Sheila. The picture of the cards didn’t come through. Would love to see them.

Thank you both so much. Anna – I re-uploaded the photos. I don’t know what happened. I am happy you like them. :)
