Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells ...

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas, blah, blah blah, blah, blaaahhhhhh ....

I finished my Christmas cards today. I completed 25 and I think that's enough, I always have some store bought ones around in case I need one in a pinch. Here's what my house looks like when my rubber stamping obsession overtakes all of the flat surfaces for drying, LOL!

There were many Christmas movies on TV today so it really helped get me motivated to finish the cards, it took from about noon until 9pm ... of course not the entire time ... stamping takes patience, things need to dry. However, this was good because my house also got cleaned in the process while I was waiting for different things to dry. Dishes and laundry got done too :o)

Here's a close up of a finished card. The Reindeer stamp is by Outlines Rubber Stamps. Merry Christmas is by Rubber Stamp Tapestry, but it fit this card very nicely since I didn't have the one from Outlines. This card uses bleach to get the desired effects .. smelly, but pretty once done!


Not much knitting got done today, I did work on my November Mystery Socks though and I was working on my boyfriends socks last night.

I found a really cool Knitting Pattern Advent Calendar from Drops Designs online! Check it out!

Techknitting has so many great tips/tutorials.

I like the socks in the Advent calendar. I think the ribbing was k3p2.
