Creative Images Christmas Party

It’s been a long time since we had our Christmas party on Dec. 12, but I have been indulging myself in a fit of pique.  I’m needy and need positive feedback, not especially mature things, I admit.  I got discouraged and thought that no one cared whether or not I blogged because hardly anyone comments besides my dear friend Misty (I got the occasional thank you e-mails from others).  Not one person inquired as to why I hadn’t blogged the Christmas party.  For almost a month!  That was my criteria to do it.  Someone had to ask me.  Well, at the shoebox swap, Theresa asked me.  I had the pictures all resized and organized.  I was just being stubborn.  Bad Kathy.

First, I’ll show the gifts some ladies brought to share.  I’ll do them as an album.  Click on it to see the details.

On the left is a microwave popcorn wrapped up by Janice, then some candies from Theresa, candied pretzels from Tange, a giant Hershey bar from Linda and fudge from me.  On my cheat sheet, I show a pencil from Helen, but no picture.  My bad.

Next, here is an album of the tags made for the tag swap.  Ten ladies participated and we each made ten tags, so it worked out great.  I used mine on Christmas presents under my tree. 

Here are the first five.  From left to right is Janice’s ornament punch tag, Dani’s ho, ho, ho tag, Holly’s clear plastic tag, Helen’s stocking and Eleanor’s yoyo and poinsettia tags.

Here’s the last five.  From left to right is Jeannie’s holly-edged tag, Therese’s stocking with yoyo, my two-sided lace snowflake, Nancy’s die cut tree and Tange’s gold-embossed joyful Christmas. 

Our exchange card theme was “Merry and Bright.”  I inserted individual pics of each of the exchange cards, wanting them all to show up side by side, but here’s what I got.  sigh  The first card is a lovely, fussy cut, water colored, embossed angel done by Therese.  On the right is Connie’s beautiful black and pink die cut deer.

Here’s the outside of Dani’s card with tiny Christmas lights embellishing it . . .

. . . and inside is matching lights with the sentiment.

Here’s Ella’s die cut tree and pretty designer paper.

M & B Ella

This one is Helen’s gold-embossed Christmas dove on an embossed background.  Simply perfect.

M & B Helen

Holly made this bright and shiny white embossed reindeer card.

Janice made this pretty spirelli card with lovely snowflake designer paper on the side.

M & B Janice

Side by side!  Go figure.  On the left is Jeannie’s card combining many different die cuts.  On the right is my card, a sample from Janice’s workshop back in November.

M & B Jeannie M & B Kathy

This is Linda’s cute water colored snowman, fussy cut and popped up on some bright fibers.

M & B Linda

Here’s Nancy pretty green tree combined with die cuts and punches.

M & B Nancy

Sigh.  Two again.  The pretty blue ornament and Top Note die card is Pam’s.  Tange’s lovely fan and poinsettia looks Asian.

M & B Pam M & B Tange

Last, but not least, here’s Theresa’s beautiful water colored ornament.  Lots of glitter and silver touches.

M & B Theresa

All fourteen cards are better looked at close up.  Just click on the pic, then hit back to return.

We had our usual Chinese gift exchange (that’s not a very PC name!).  Here are some of the pics I took.  I’m not sharing them all as some were downright unflattering for whatever reason.  I value my hide.

From left to right, Helen, Pam, my presents, Theresa and Janice and Dani and Jeannie.

Sorry it took so long.  As soon as Russel processes the pics of yesterday’s shoebox swap, I’ll get them up in the next day or so.

Thanks for stopping by. Comments always welcome.

Kathy-- Sorry to have been so remiss in this.. I have always enjoyed the blog, and will continue to do so, even if I can't make the club right now. You have been a gem in doing this for so long, and we really should have told you so. Holly

Kathy, I have not been on-line for so long. . . Thanks for posting the Christmas pics. I was wondering who donated all of those goodies. I managed to make the fudge last for three days. (had to have a second piece) As always a super job as our official photographer!
