Christmas Revisited

Although I am so super excited to share the
super duper fabulously creative
Occasions Mini Catalog
here at Always Stampin', I just had to share
a few more Christmas ideas.
These are A... MAZ... ING!!!
I couldn't share them before now because
my computer developed an illness over the holidays
and will be in the shop until this coming Monday.
I miss my little buddy BUT...
for Christmas, my sweetie gave me a
(yes, that was me still squealing!)
I LOVE it!!!
Still trying to figure everything out
about this wonderful tool,
(slowly but surely)
I am finally making my first post of 2012!
Whoo hoo!  Now on with the show!

The items seen here in this post were sent to me
by my "Secret Santa," SUE BEGGER.
She couldn't have sent me anything better!
These projects are THE BOMB!
I love getting (and sharing) new ideas!
The tissue box above is an actual box of tissues
which Sue simply covered and altered.
How gorgeous is it?!
And with us being in the heart of winter,
just imagine what cute little gift this would make!
Can you just see it sitting on a coworker's desk
with a little note... "aaa... aaa... chooose YOU!"
Get it "aaa-chooose..." a sneeze... "I choose YOU!"
he he he... ya my humor
usually humors myself alone, he he he.

Now how's THIS for a cute way to wrap?!
Sue just wrapped some retired SU! DSP around
some fabulous goodies from the Occasions Mini and
voila... instant beauty!
I can't wait to give these
Large Pearl Basic Jewels (125577-$4.95)
and Hat Pins (124478-$3.95) a try!!!

Isn't this Cocoa Treat Holder absolutely
I'd like to tell Sue this is my very favorite
but to be honest, I can't choose a fav!
They're all so unique and great!
I will certainly be operating on this one
to figure out how to recreate it.
I see so many possibilities for this gift.

And how cute is this?!
Seriously, I bet this took Sue
a matter of minutes to create!
Talk about a great way to give a little
Christmas cheer!
Hey!  It's never too early to begin
thinking and preparing for Christmas!
Stampers especially,
should always be on the lookout
for Christmas ideas and
begin on those ideas NO LATER THAN
July 1
wrapping up by November 20.
This way we're not crazy busy with our
creativity and we're sure to remember
(Jesus, of course!)

Just when you thought you had seen cute...
Don't you just love it?!
Sue created the adorable soldier
with mostly punches.
How awesome is that?!
And the Candy Wrapper Box
is the perfect size for three tiny treats...
just enough for me to NOT have to share!
he he he...

So there you have it!
Christmas revisited...
with a few ideas for the 2012 Christmas season
and a few ideas to share today.

get started with these gifts,
