Were oh were...

...have the last three weeks gone?
I am working for the Elections Advance Voting, I will be at Timaru Girls High on the day as Enquiry Officer so I will the person wearing the lovely orange vest directing people answering questions and helping with the smooth running of the place, then I will be at HQ as admin support afterward for about 10 days.
When I haven't been working I have been help a friends son and also learning the ropes at the Mountianview High School Uniform Shop.
If I have been home I have been doing things around home or in the garden.
So there hasn't been much time for crafting, to be honest I have been lacking inspiration.
I did find time to get my swaps done for tonights Team Meeting, which I unable to atteend (very sad).
We were asked to used the 'Stitched stocking Stamp Set and Punch.
 We were also asked to think outside the square, which just stumped me.
I have seen lots of different things done with it on different blogs, but I didn't want to case.
 So here is what I came up with circles.
 These are Christmas Decorations or they could be tags on your gifts.
lollipop Accordian Flowers are very easy to made, I found them on Pinterest.
All you need is 2 strips of DSP, Scoring Tool, Crop-A-Dile and some Bakers Twine.
 I have used Letters to Santa DSP, Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, Marina Mist, Blushing Bride Cardstock.
Add a bit of Ribbon and Bling and wallah you have it.
Sorry about the photos, they were taking on my phone.
