Washi tape! Need I say more! Ahhh the possibilities!

How sweet is the little wreath. Love this natural look.

Black, white and gold! Hello!

Burlap and a gorgeous tag! What more do you need!

I LOVE these printable tags....'Merry Christmas your filthy animal!'  

A gold glittery deer!!! YES please!

Cute and colourful!

I love the idea of using photo's to personalize the gift wrapping.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea of taking plain solid colour wrapping paper and writing on it, adding fun!

I hope to share my own Christmas gift wrapping idea next week so I hope you pop in and visit with me for a bit!

I've been working on some stuff for Jennifer's share handmade kindess challenge and will share that soon. This is often how I to one of my kids while doing homework. I can't divide Jane's Doodles and mom duties, it's all intertwined. I work from my desk which is in the living room (distractions ALL THE TIME). It's a blessing to work from home because I can be here for my kids but at the same time for obvious reasons it can be very stressful.

This photo was taken this morning. That would be my sweet Jakov's hand doing homework and me glueing sequins onto my card! :)

I can't wait for my next release next week!

And on a totally different note, I bought one of Lavera's Soft Lipliner in Rose which is the perfect 'nude' shade for my 'my lips but better' lipsticks. For a lip pencil it isn't too dry. I bought mine at Muller.

What a wonderful surprise I got this morning! Mr. Postman brought me a box full of kind goodness from the amazing Jennifer McGuire!
I'm sure most of you already heard about Jennifer's share handmade kindness challenge this month. If not pop on over to her brand gorgeous new website and find out what it's all about!

I am happy to say that I do share handmade kindness. Just this morning I received this email from a super friendly lady from France. I sent her a card and some yummy chocolates!

Hello Jane!

Thank you! :))))))

Oh this is so cute, you are so nice :)

I laughed when receiving your parcel! I love the concept of the card with the chocolates! 

I know what will accompany my tea this morning !

I'd like to eat the card too, it looks yumi!! :)

Thank you again! You are really kind too :)

Have a nice day!

I hope she doesn't mind that I shared a bit of her email. But it felt awesome that I made her laugh today.

Thank you Jennifer for sending this sweet package to me and for being pretty darn awesome! I of  coarse will join this challenge and share what I do!

I also encourage everyone to spread a little kindness.

stretch your stamps


I'm sharing a cute tag I made using my Smile, Winter Wishes and Stripes and Dots stamp sets. 

I coloured the frog with my Graph'it markers and added some white glitter to the hat.

I did some tricky masking to add the hat to the frog and there's no way I can word it to make sense. I should have taken pictures. Maybe I'll make a video showing how I do it.

flannel love

I've been diggin' me some flannel lately! Can you believe that I don't own a flannel shirt! Shocking...I know! BUT I do have a super big and soft flannel scarf I bought at Accessorize last year.

All this flannel love inpsired a Christmas card this morning! And I have to say I really love how it turned out!

For my card I used my Stripes and Dots and Warm Wishes stamp sets. To stamp the stripes I used Tim Holtz inks in Barn Door, Peeled Paint and Broken China. I wasn't too worried with being exact especially considering that my Stripes and Dots stamps are hand drawn.
