A Homemade Holiday

I was excited to receive so many wonderful homemade surprises from crafty friends once again this Christmas! Scroll down to get a closer look at each little treasure...
Handcrafted cookie goodness from sweet Heather...we look forward to these adorable decorated cuties every Christmas...YUM!
A trio of holiday angels from amazingly creative Lorna! Seriously, this girl always blows me away with the MOST original ideas. I would love to peek into her brain to learn how she consistently comes up with such unique and imaginative creations.
Case in point...this awesome embossed four sided pyramid box tree topped with an angel winged Sister Stamps Kiyomi in flight, holding an origami crane! 

And how about this sweet angel treat holder made using Dandelion Designs kokeshi head with a condiment cup covered with a lace doily for her body? Yes, amazing....very amazing!

This adorable Christmas card and super sweet coaster calendar were created by my best blogging pal from the Big Island, Karen of Have A Scrap Happy Day blog. She puts together the cutest cards with beautifully stamped and colored images, always perfectly paired with die cuts and lots of fun embellishing. 

Simply LOVED this really unique and special swing type card from dear Aunty Mollie. Don't think I've ever seen a card like this before....definitely need to ask her about how she created this beauty next time I see her! The glittery trees on the front are epoxy stickers...they really add such an elegant touch!

Here's a closeup shot of the super cute bag my gifts from Kris came in. Awww....totally adorable, right? Kris always does the best paper pieced creations. Love all the embossing on the background and layered tree... and who could resist that super sweet Santa teddy?
And OMG! How cute is this Pochacco tag that came with Kris' gift? Kawaii to the max!

Uh, oh! Cuteness overload!!! That's what I thought when I first saw this lovable little elf on a thank you card from sweet Gwen. I believe this little feller's a punch art creation...completely and very creatively paper pieced together using many different paper punches....ingenious!!!!

My last card to share is this amazing thank you card created by Patti of Creations By Patti blog. Darn! I tried very hard, but was unable to capture the subtle glittery shimmer on the background of this BEAUTIFUL irl!!! And of course that kawaii paper pieced happy snowflake had me all smiles!
I was thrilled and delighted to receive so many wonderful homemade cards and goodies this year. All the time and thought and love spent on creating each of these is truly appreciated and certainly warmed my heart this Christmas. Thank you so very much!!!!
