What I've Been Up To...

Hello! I haven't posted in a while, but I have been busy making gifts for the holidays! I found this great template on the My Time Made Easy website. It's just $5.00 and I think I've already gotten plenty of use out of it!
So far I have made three of these sets. Each one comes with the card box, 8 monogrammed notecards and matching envelopes, an altered
mini notebook, and a jumbo paperclip. The first one I made took me forever, but once I got it down, the others were really easy!
The best part is, I didn't have to go out and buy anything (except the template) because I have tones of random notebooks and stuff laying around the house! I also used this opportunity to use up some old designer paper.. yeah!
Oh yeah, to make it even easier, I used my computer to make the monogram and printed them out on Whisper White paper. This eliminated having to try to stamp all of them. Plus, I don't have an alphabet stamp set that I thought was appropriate.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!!!!!
