Nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit more than wrapping presents. But that’s also one of the last things I do before Christmas. Right now, I’ve been making Christmas gift tags, stamping most of them with rubber stamps, coloring, glittering, etc. I try to make about 20 each of about 15 to 20 different designs. I make about 20 little bags of the tags with 15 to 20 different tags in each one. I’ve also hand painted a few and hope to put at least one into each bag of tags. These bags of tags are given as gifts and people seem very glad to get them. Here are some of the hand painted tags I did this year. Overall, these tags measure 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, so the paintings are even smaller.
The sock, holly, and Christmas tree branch were done with acrylic. The snowman was done with watercolor.
Next, I need to get started making my Christmas cards and then it is on to making cookies! Anyone have a good recipe? No chocolate or coconut, please. I don’t like either one. Yeah, I know, I’m strange. :)
