Starting to feel Christmas-y

Last night was the first time I've felt the least bit in the Christmas mood this year. Jodi had Christmas music, Vintage Christmas Decorations, and Hot chocolate. Christmas swept through each and every corner of the barn. Today there was a bit of a chill in the air, and that feeling carried over. I'm not ready to deck the halls yet, but I have done a few Christmas-y things.

The first is a project with those candle clips I bought last night. I've come up with several uses for them, but I just couldn't wait to share this one.
First I opened up the center area, that usually holds a candle. It folds out like a flower

Then I glued whatever bit or bobble I could think of in the center.

Imagine how surprised my family will be when they have no bows this year on their gifts. Instead they find these wonderful re-usable darlings.

They clip right to the ribbon or string, and even hold the name tag

And that brings me to my wrapping station. I decided to set up a wrapping station this year with some of my junk

Mostly for now, i'm using it as a photography area, for pictures of my products. But it will be nice to have everything I need in 1 spot for gift wrapping.

And since we are talking about Christmas, Wrapping, Shopping etc.
I have lots available on-line in my store.

I'm in the process of re-doing many of the pictures, and adding new items as well as "buy now" buttons to make shopping easier. I'll have free shipping on all jewelry through the holidays. Be sure to check out some of the new stuff in all departments.
And don't forget about

I have 3 left so if you want one you better hurry. If there is a good enough response, I'll order another batch, but I'll have to see how it goes.

Each Calendar is $14.50 shipping included.
This Calendar features wonderful photo's by our talented bloggers. And also has Flea Market sale dates marked, as well as the usual holidays. This is a "must have" for any lover of junk.
You can view a preview of the entire calendar

for fun, unique and unusual junk-y finds, new items added daily.

I love the clips! I have some of those, so I may have to "steal" your idea. I'm also working on an idea of my own with them. I'll share it if I ever get it finished. I just ordered a calendar. I'm so excited!

Great idea! Actually, one of the best I've seen for gift tags! Bet it would work to clip a little brown bag of goodies closed as well! I only wish I had some of those neat little clips...they would be really cute as place card holders clipped to a fork! I am going to dig through my tubs...I just gotta have some of those somewhere...
