Our open house was very fun, as ususal, but we did have a much smaller crowd this year due to the weather. Instead of our ususal 75+ we had 35-40. The little kids enjoyed decorating their gingerbread houses, the big kids sompared iPods, iPhones and other electronics while the adults made merry. needless to say....lots of leftover goodies! I made plates up for the few neighbors who were not able to make it & Jarek delivered them on Monday...a snow day!
These are gift card holders...I got the idea from Sandy Genovese's sight...when you pull the card open the center square flips to reveal a gift card. I did adjust my pattern...her's did not fight in a standard envelope & i really didn't want to make envelopes, so with a little math I adjusted it so they will fit in a 5x7 envelope.
Today I have to wrap presents...one of my least favorite things to do...guess that is why I am updating my blog. Ok, I have procrastinated enough...I will wrap all presents today!
