Last month while at Hobby Lobby I discovered blank cards in red & green and decided I could craft up my own Christmas cards this year and spread some cheer. With the help of a 50% sale, I picked up the cards, some stickers, colored Sharpies, washi tape and confetti.
Of course, I only managed to sit down and work on them this week! I love how they turned out and was thrilled to drop them in the mail this morning.
There's still more to cram in this week at work and not-work: packing, cleaning, eating food so it won't go bad, see friends, watch some Christmas movies & Doctor Who episodes, get some sleep and finish up a few projects.
I'm making good progress on my tree skirt so far this week. Last night I measured my tree base, took a deep breath and cut the quilt so it'd fit around the tree. I then wrapped it around the tree to be sure and phew - it fit. I've pulled a red and white print from my stash and made bias binding and some ties. These just need to be stitched down (hopefully by Friday) so that I can put it under the tree and enjoy it this year.

Linking up at Freshly Pieced this week and sending a huge shout out to everyone finishing up those last minute projects!
