Candy Boxes

I'm slowly but surely getting things ready. I think I'm almost ready for my Christmas Card Stamp a Stack on Saturday. Everything is packed, just need to double check everything. I'm slowly getting ready for my Dr Appointment on Monday too. If I do have to be induced I'm not sure if my Dr will send me straight to the hospital or if we'll schedule something for next week. But I'm taking my bag to the Dr appointment just in case. Still haven't packed it, but I have a nice list of things that need to go in it :) I've loaded more songs on my MP3 player. I stopped and got a gift for Logan from the baby when we bring it home. And Logan picked out a gift today for the baby from him. Friday I'll get my drivers license renewed. It expires in October and I'd rather not take a baby to the MVD so I'll do it tomorrow. I still haven't started on my Thank You gifts to the nurses and staff. Once I do I think they'll go quickly, I'm keeping them super simple. I've canceled meetings and dinners for next week just in case. I know there's more that I have to do but I'm drawing a blank right now. Sunday I hope to get some cleaning done, bathrooms, vacuuming, etc. Just so that if I do get induced on Monday I'll at least come home to a clean house :) I'm not sure what's going to happen but slowly I'm ready if it does happen next week. And if not-look how ahead I'll be!

At all my classes I always like to give little gifts to everyone for coming. So this is what I made for my Stamp a Stack.

Aren't they cute!? I used the new Candy Wrapper Die in the Holiday Mini and went with bright colors for these. I actually looked at the Brights Button Assortment and used those colors, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Real Red, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.
They're so fun and I love how they're traditional Christmas colors. I mean yellow and orange for Christmas?? Sure! Why Not?!?
Here's a close up of just a couple of them, they're all made the same just with different colors.

It's difficult to see in the picture but I used the Poinsettia embossing folder on the white cardstock then wrapped it around the box. I used brads to hold the box closed, which is super cute!!! And I added a little pearl to the end of the Y in 'Joy'



Aren't they cute! I just love them!
I'm going to try to get a couple of posts scheduled for next week, so if you see new stuff it doesn't mean it's going up live, just means that somehow I've gotten myself organized enough to get the scheduled :)
