Christmas projects .....

I'm a Christmas Junkie - I love everything about it....except
 the commercialism, that is.   I work on
Christmas projects year around.  And you'll never hear me groan about
'Christmas stuff already?'   Here are a few Christmas pieces  that I've finished ......

I fussy cut these reversible mug rugs/coasters -
the reverse side is bit more sophisticated and there's
 a sample of it peeking out on the lower right side.
 


This is 'Snowman's Best Friend', a design from HERE
It was part of the 2013 "12 Days of Christmas" 

 
I finished this candle mat with a solid, dark green backing.
It's approx. 12" square.


I like this gift tag/ornie from HERE.  It's
finished with felt on the back - it's a favourite and I've made a few for gifts.

I totally agree about the terrible commercialism Kate... a shopping centre in my area is having Santa from this coming weekend, for goodness sake that is way too early, no wonder kids drive their parents mad!!

Any time of year is good for making lovely Christmas items - yours are all so gorgeous - love them all!
