It's Nearly Freakin' Christmas!

Welcome to the November edition of the
Controlfreaks blog hop!  If you are hopping over from
Jan's blog, Welcome!

(All of our projects will be live no later than Wednesday morning-
if you are joining me Tuesday night, you may need to check back
tomorrow if all links are not quite working yet.)

Here is what I have going on over here:
PINS.  I am Pin-Crazy!
I can't get enough.

Here's one with the darling little reindeer from
the Joyous Celebrations set (128069).  I love the
ruffled 7/8in cotton ribbon! (127844)

This one is a little smaller, and could be worn
with both brown or black:

I am going to shed a tear when I don't have this
awesome tulle ribbon to play with anymore!

I have made a total of SEVEN pins. . .
Yes, I did go a bit overboard!  I will be posting them
throughout the coming weeks, so be on the lookout!

Finally, an ornament for an exchange I
am participating in next week:

This rosette used a 2.5in strip of paper with our
lovely Designer Rosette Bigz XL die.
Cherry Cobbler seam binding is woven thru,
and used to hang the ornament.

Some hardware, and a few rhinestones to
catch the light, and it's a done deal!

Thanks for participating in our hop-Next up:
