Here comes Santa Claus!

Good Friday morning! : ) I have a to do list that is longer than I am tall today, but I wanted to share a couple of things with you guys! How are you?! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful week and not stressing to awful much about the QUICKLY approaching holiday madness! I still have about a bazillion and two things to do, but I am trying to keep stress to a minimum! (mostly because I do not have time for it! ) Giggles and a grin!

I had my monthly demonstrator meeting last weekend and had such a nice time! The group of ladies that I meet with are so sweet and I just love getting together to bounce creative ideas off of one another! We had a great meeting full of excellent food, lots of laughs, tons of cookies (yummmm-o!!) and a super fun project! We made bracelets from SU!'s Build-a-Brad set and I just LOVED that project! (Thank you Kaye for a wonderful meeting!) I will share the bracelet that I made soon!

I wanted to do a little something for these sweet ladies to wish them all a Merry Christmas and so this is what I came up with! I saw this cute Santa face punch while blurfing one day and saved the idea! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE punch art and this was too cute! He was originally going to be an ornament, but I decided he needed to be 'more'! I cut my 8.5 X 11 paper in half and used a simple 2, 4, 6, 8 box pattern for the body and gave them all a little personality by adding the white trim and belt buckles! I bradded on a handle and filled these little guys with chocolate and boom...all done!! Soooo cute! I made a couple of extra ones to send to my folks too! : )
This is my Santa Box! How cute is he?!

Santa from the side!

I lined a few of them up for this picture! The rest waited in the house because it was windy out side! LOL

In keeping with the Santa face theme, this was my recipe card for the Cookie exchange we had! I made good ole' fashioned chocolate chip cookies! Eight dozen of them! They were yummy! Love those big guys!! We decided as a group that this would be our last recipe card exchange for a while! We made a ton of them and have quite a full little cookbook now! : )

I will be skipping the recipe due to my time budget today, but if any questions arise I will be happy to answer them! : ) I have several more things to post and will be back soon! Have a wonderful day! Ho! Ho! Ho!
