Getting ready for Christmas

With all the newly found and organized supplies I have at my disposal, I have been working at night while watching tv on a few christmas swaps I joined in... Here are the matchbox ornaments for an advent swap with the Diva's.  The purple angel is a gift for a friend.  I am making a bunch of these from toilet paper rolls.  Yes Danita, I save them too, and a good thing, because I gave a bag of them away to a friend and then didn't have enough.  So I used gift wrap tubes, paper towel tubes etc.  I am making them for a boutique and filling them with homemade English Toffee...  Now that I know how to make it like my sister in law Krissy does, (I learned her trick last year) it comes out better than ever.

Now I have to work on my 12 days of christmas swap with the Gilding the Lily thursday night gals...  I got 11 pipers piping...  and I have an idea...  It seems to be coming out well, will post pix soon.

What things are you working on for Christmas?  I would love to hear.
