Pin It

Welcome to 
The North Pole
Blog Hop

To the North Pole I'd like to go,
Over fields of ice and snow;
To see Santa dear,
Mrs. Claus and the elves would be
Waiting there for you and me;
  Where they make the toys so busily!

Connie Can Crop  ( That's me! And I am playing Santa this year!!) is the beginning of this hop! 

This is a one day blog hop, but you have until Sunday to finish hopping and leaving your love for all of these talented elves.

We have an awesome sponsor for this month!

In his wonderful reindeer sleigh,
Santa would whisk us all away;
Flying merrily,

Non stop to the NORTH POLE!!

I have a few projects lined up for you!
These were started back in July and I am finally finishing them up! Whew!

Up first is this cute basket of tags... Called the 10 things I love about Christmas.
Each tag has room for a photo or two. This is gonna be a great gift for someone special!

Next up we have 2 tiny Christmas trees made of folded paper! (Hey these fit my challenge this month!) I just love how easy they were to make yet they are so cute!

And finally the best for last, my Christmas Banner! Just love that I was able to personalize this!


 Special thanks to Leticia and her Coffee and Crafts Crop in July where we started these projects! She has the cutest ides!! Hope you loved them too and can see how easy it is to make your home shine for the holidays!

Next head on over to Santa's workshop to visit with Santa's Elf....Rebecca!!
