I can’t believe the movie Elf came out in 2003. We first watched it about 2 years ago. We were however, instantly smitten. I wasn’t really hip to this whole Will Ferrell business, but when I saw this movie, oh man, he was brilliant. This is a little clip from one of our favorite bits of the movie.
The four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, syrup – LOL
Anywhozzle, so when Kelly Purkey created and sold this stamp last year, I had to buy it to make something for the kids with it.
So here today are some super simple Christmas gift tags that I’ll be using for their gifts. I cut up the journaling spots from some Echo Park patterned paper, stamped a little, added stickers to some, punched a hole, threaded some shimmery ribbon, and we’re done.

It’s Black Friday, so I guess the season of thanks is over. I thought I better get this very fall-looking card posted before we officially moved on to all-Christmas all the time. These past few days of eating and shopping have kicked my butt. The
outlaws in-laws leave tomorrow so I plan on hibernating this weekend. In my jammies. 48-hours straight.
Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you have an abundant number of things to be thankful for today, and that you get time to celebrate them.
As for me, I’m tired. And I’m crazy. We were at a 24-hour Walgreens at midnight. But the register with the new prices didn’t turn until 12:50am, so we had to just hang out at Walgreens – LOL And then the kids were hungry – hey, we weren’t going to leave them home alone LOL – so we went to McDonald’s for Chicken McNuggets and hash browns, and were home and in bed at 2am. Then we had to get up and be at the 8am Walgreens’ – 4 of them. And then there’s that whole having to clean the house and make a turkey thing too. Yup. I would say I’m stalling as I am sitting here typing up this post – heh.
I wanted to make use of this Autumn Spice paper pack from Lily Bee that I bought but wasn’t particularly inspired to make cards with. So I pulled together some punches and decided to make some confetti bags. Truth be told, I had no idea what the confetti bags would be for, but decided last night that they should got on the Thanksgiving table with some candy corns spread around for more of a fun look as opposed to all fancy-schmancy which doesn’t quite represent us.
A lot of punching. I think little punches are the cutest thing.
This picture makes me happy happy happy.
All bagged up in little glassine bags.
Sprinkled in some Martha Stewart tinsel glitter that I asked for and never ever use. (Good thing I didn’t buy it myself )
Finished off with some tickets and pennant stickers.
And now we just need to clean, vacuum, bring in the table, put a table cloth on it, and set these out.
Enjoy your day!
