Thank God it's Frida!  There's been a flurry of artventurous activities over here in stampmaindenland. 


Too much activity means I'm behind in mailing out cards. 

The artventurous spirit that got a hold of me had me recycling gum packaging by turning them into gift card holders.  I'm pleased with the outcome.  There were some interesting patterns which I wanted to leave exposed.  I just added small touches in red to give them a Christmas feel.

The weather was perfect for staying indoors and that's really what sent me into a creative frenzy. 

I'm not promoting Target, but their plastic bags are a perfect and festive (color-wise) way to use in gift bags.  It looks like I threw in a bunch of peppermint candies.  

I only had a couple of gum packages to recycle and I was in need of a couple more gift card holders.  These Chinese New Year money envies turned out to be just the thing.  
I'm tired but it's a happy tired.  Merry Everything, Happy Always.  I think that's how it goes.  zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
