Christmas Gift Bag / Box with a Reindeer Image

****  OOPS!  so sorry.  I just realized what the title said when this one went out to everyone.  I just changed it.  Originally this post was set up for a LOC blog hop, but it was cancelled.  Sorry if it was misleading ***

Good Morning!  Today I am sharing a gift set designed for Stamper's Sampler Magazine and I'm proud to say, it made the cut!!  In fact I have several projects in the Oct / Nov issue.  I used Creative Cuts and More pre-scored / pre-cut die cuts and Layers of Color Reindeer Waltz.

Gotta vent for just a minute ....  I have to go to my husband's Work Christmas Dinner.  Notice I said "have", teehee.  This is going to be torture for me, seriously.  I don't know anyone, and I'm not exactly a social butterfly.  I'm happy in my studio creating and could go DAYS, without ever leaving the house.  My favorite get togethers are when someone comes over to craft with me ...  and I don't have to leave the house.  Say a prayer for me, I know I'm a grown women, but I have a little social anxiety.
How is the Christmas shopping and putting up the decorations going??  We started putting up the decorations the day after Thanksgiving.  I have 1 tree done.  I have a second tree in the diningroom I have to put up.  I found the CUTEST christmas salad plates really cheap at Walmart.  They have little holly branches and birds on them!  I will try to take photo's soon and share.
Have a great day!
hugs, Melisa

Hey Melisa! Congrats on being published! Your project is wonderful. And I feel for you dear friend, I make a great corner adorner at my social husbands company parties. I dread them, but God has always set someone near me who discovers some similar thread in life and we tend to chat until I can finally leave. It's enjoyable if you like meeting strange people, but I am an introvert, and that is all there is to it. Smile and go with a positive attitude, and you'll survive until the next one (Sure wish there weren't so many next ones lol) Blessings sister.
