Cricut Friday: Christmas Tag #1

Festive tree tag!

Festive tree tag!

Christmas is less than two weeks away, but I wanted to share this festive tag with you.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this tag:

  • Cricut machine
  • Cricut Winter Frolic cartridge
  • cardstock
  • adhesive and foam dots
  • tag

Cut out the Christmas tree at 4″. Adhere the tree to the tag and attach the star with a foam dot.

I purchased the tags from Big Lots several years ago and use them for spring and summer projects as well.  The tag is cheery and fun.  I love it!

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.  In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.  ~Larry Wilde


Photography Monday: Micro Library #2

What a charming micro library!

What a charming micro library!

Life happens and I had to take an unexpected break from the blog since Thanksgiving.  I am back now to share with you the discovery of another micro library in my town.  Coincidentally, it is located across the street from my parent’s home.  As I mentioned before in my first post about micro libraries, they follow the philosophy of “take a book, return a book”.  Each micro library is unique in its design and scale.  This library is a beautiful addition to this garden and quite charming.  I love it and hope more appear in town soon!
