Crafty Times: Fall Cards & Christmas Gift Tags

Crafty Times is a new thing I am trying on the blog where I can share some of the art and crafts I have created (you can too of course). I really dabble in a wide variety of crafts and hope you can find something that sparks your interest or inspires you!

It has been quite a while since I last posted some crafts, but I really haven't been creating anything in the past several months.  That all changed when my mom told me she booked an extra table at the local bazaar for my cards (and I had nothing made to sell yet).  I have about another week to get Christmas cards made but I thought I would share with you what I have so far!  Also, in case wondering minds want to know, I have a separate instagram set up now for my crafting since I would like to turn it into a business someday - @EasternSunsetCreates I have been debating setting up a blog or website as well (since I will not be selling on Etsy any longer) but that takes a lot of time that I don't have right now.

So here are the fall/thanksgiving cards I made, some of them came out so beautifully and exactly the way I had pictured!

I figured a good way to help my mind transfer over to Christmas mode would be to start out small. So I started off making gift tags.  After making 60 of them, I think I am ready to move on to Christmas cards! 

My Mom has her own quilting business and had been looking for something to send to her client's over the past year as a thank you and Christmas card.  Luckily, I had a plan but it certainly took a while to make all these cards for her!

 And this is why I have been listening to so many audio books lately! I am able to craft and read at the same time.  Now I better get back to work since I need to make about 18 Christmas cards and 6 Thank you cards by Thursday!



  1. Fun! I love that little turkey picture. Those gift tags are awesome!

  2. You are way too talented. These are so cute! I love the tags! I’ve been listening to audiobooks while remodeling. They’re great! Now I can keep my reading numbers up while life keeps happening.
