Welcome Snowy Winter Hop Guests

Brrr!
It sure is cold outside and feeling a lot like winter here in Florida. We have been waking up to 33 degrees for the past couple of days and wearing lots of layers. Since the weather outside is frightfully cold, this is the perfect time for the Snowy Winter Hop. Dorcas from 4 Crafty Angels is hosting today's hop, so be sure to visit her (if you haven't already) and all the other amazing ladies.
 
A Gift Box for my daughter's teacher.
 I bought some lotion at Ulta that will fit inside nicely.
 
Gift Box ~ Joanns ~ $3.99 with 40% off

Cover with bow ~ ribbon ~ Michaels 50% off
 Here is a picture of each side of the box.
Ornaments ~ Jolly Holidays
 

Bell, Stocking  and Banner ~ Jolly Holidays

 I will have my daughter make a card (I will post at a later date when she completes it.).

I am so glad that you have decided to join all of us. Here is the line-up for those participating today. Lots of goodies along the way too, so be sure to leave a comment for each project.

Some of my favorite types of embellishments will be today's treat.
Please become a follower if you would like and leave a comment. Don't forget to include a way to get in touch with you. I love to share ideas and visit others. The winner will be announced on Monday, December 6th.

Be sure to visit Ive next. She has the cutest set and a great surprise too.

Take care and bundle up. Try to stay warm, especially if you have to go out shopping.

Georgiana


Thanks Dorcas!
