Thank you for all the fabulous suggestions for the garland stocking treats. Fabulous!! I especially love all the non-"stuff" ones--words on rocks, love notes, clues, craft pieces, etc. So many great ideas! You all rock!
When I made these cards (from the Denyse Schmidt book) a few months ago, I knew I'd make them soon again, they were so much fun. And thankfully, a dear friend ordered a bunch from me, so I had the excuse to make lots more. They're the perfect project for me--very quick (since I'm an instant gratification kinda gal), and I use up scraps (which makes me feel oh-so-thrifty).
I'm also figuring out that it's a huge exercise in color for me--I really really struggle with color combinations (really, I do), so this is a great way to play around with color on a small scale. The one below is my favorite combination, I think I'd like to try to replicate it on a larger project sometime.
Oh, and before you start thinking I really don't sleep at night, or that I ignore my children all day while I sew, let me assure you that these were made two weeks ago. They just arrived at their destination, so I can finally post them. So there. I'm going to sleep now. ;)
