Happy Monday Everyone,
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have a few Christmas gifts that will need gift bags so I decided to make a few of my own with materials I had on hand rather than going out and buying them. Here is a video on how I put together the one above 🙂 I put to good use the little tags I made with the leftovers from my holiday cards.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video.
Let me tell you about our Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful time at my parent’s house with my sister, brother and his family. You know how there is always one thing that goes wrong during the holidays…Wednesday the smoke/CO detector went off saying there is CO in the house…ugh…we called the gas company and they came out and checked to find no CO in the house. Yeah!!!! Thanksgiving day around 12:30 in the afternoon beep beep beep….NO!!!!! This time we left the windows closed like the guy the day before told us and called the gas company…he didn’t find any CO either. He goes and checks the furnace and notices something is wrong and says…I can’t leave you like this…we’re going to have to shut it down…WHAT!!!! so to make a long story short this poor/kind man stayed for two hours Thanksgiving day and managed to temporarily fix our furnace so not to have to leave us without but we will have to have it replaced. Luckily our faulty detector went off before something major happened. On the upside it is the very last large expense that we knew we would have to do sooner or later in the house. At least it will be safe and we’ll be toasty warm this winter. So that was my Thanksgiving holiday, we didn’t let it ruin our family time and we already have three estimates in the works for the new furnace.
Friday mom and I did some major xmas shopping. We started out at 5 am Friday morning and shopped for almost 9 hours. We are happy to report that we are done and ready for gift giving. Just need to wrap those presents. The tree is up and the house is decorated, let the holiday begin.
I hope you all have a great day.
Hugs and happy crafting,
