Christmas punch pine cones

Pin It
Hi all, wow things have pretty mad here with all the kids finally home from Uni for the year, our son sold his car so we had to go down and bring all his gear home and our oldest daughter after coming home from Uni has gone off to schoolies week up north as a red frog volunteer where she will be working for the week as a Chaplin supporting the teens that get blind drunk etc in their end of school celebrations. Our youngest daughter is on work experience in Queensland with a pre school and has already discovered that she dose Not want to do early child care as a profession which is good they discover these things early before they spend a lot of money on Uni fees to study. We also helped out in a combined churches Christmas concert last night with our puppet group and played the ukuleles too, that was fun :) work parties coming up and Christmas preparations seem to fill in those spare moments that i normally have to play in my craft room. But I hope you enjoy these pine cone projects. I used the Blossom petal punch from stampin up to create two different size pine cones the larger petal for the hanging decoration and the smaller petal for the card front, all the details will be in my video below so sit back and enjoy.
Blessings to you

and a last thought

Therefore confess your sins to each other and

pray for each other so that you may be healed.

The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective” (James 5:16, NIV)

Love those cute pine cones and the cards! So great that your kids are invovled in helping others. So many folks don't do that these days. Also as you said, so good your daughter realized now she doesn't want to work with kids. I tell anyone who wants to be a teacher, they need to be a sub first! Thanks for the video! Hope you and your family have a fabulous Christmas.

Valita
Your such an inspiration to me and I know to others. Your so creative and everything you do is so good and professional. How you come up with these things is beyond me. I'm happy you do though as I'm learning these good things from you. I love the way you talk about your family too. I feel that I know you. I'm glad your daughter has found out now instead of years down the road that she will be happier in another profession. Time is precious and it's good she has learned this about herself.
You are blessed with a family and creativity..how lucky can someone be...thank you again Valita for all your sharing.. Your a good example of what a good person should be. Thank you again.

pat ...who really learns from watching...I'll keep watching you.

Beautiful! You're so comfortable creating outside of the box! Sadly, I find myself without that punch and I must start collecting Spellbinders Nesties. If only my ship would come in! Have a Merry Christmas Valita!
