Have you got your Jingle on???

That is the question I was asked by my friend Diann, http://diannsartspot.blogspot.com/.
I'm to pass this HO HO HO and question on to 3 of my blogging friends . They are to answer the question on their blogs, post the HO HO HO and then pass it on to 3 of their blogging friends. "Have you got your Jingle on?" Well, again, we travel in the same circles, so I won't be passing this along but I will answer the question, happily!! Why yes I do have my Jingle on and it looks rather fetching if I do so so myself!!

I've been working on Christmas goodies for my shops and for gifts. I've also been working on my goodies for two 12 days of Christmas swaps I am in!! Hmmmm.....Guess I can't show those just yet, but I can share a couple of peek pics!! Diann and Angie....this is your warning.....if you want to be TOTALLY surprised......don't look now!! It's not the presents but the packagings!! LOL

Here is one completed gift pouch. I made them by ironing freezer paper to snowmen napkins. The pouch is the pull treat pattern from www.splitcoastampers.com. You don't untie it to open it, you just pull on the bow and it "magically" brings out your treat!! Pretty cool!! They are embellished with blue candy canes I found (who knew??), satin ribbon, and these nifty linking metallic sequiney snowflakes that were actually a linked garland. I thought they made cool tags!! My gifties are #9 in this exchange. Anywho.....here they are. I'm happy with them.

Here are the envies I am mailing them out in. I detest the ugly manila, but knew I needed to protect them from the evil clutches of the Post Office. So, I figured I could at least jazz them up with some stamps!! Enjoy!! :::Smiles:::
