And in the End, there was still the Magic!

Done, that's it for 2014 inchies, and Trillian is ending it with Magical. Thank you, EIM club, for sticking through and sharing these little cuties filled with your creativity. I will be back next week because I am addicted and love working through these in between my large sized projects.
To welcome in 2015, pour me some magical elixir. Let's go!

Where would we be without Fireworks? And that's what the last twinchie theme is for the year.  When I met my husband, it was fireworks. Now, 9 years on, we are getting ready to invite some more in.

Many tiny projects became 2 big ones. 52 weeks of ideas and creativity:

2 boxes with lids, each fits half a year of inchies.

Shadowbox for the twinchie collection, made from packaging in which various craft supplies arrived.

And on Wicked Wednesday ATC the challenge is Silver/Gold. I've got the Holy Grail. Wishing you to find your own holy grail in the new year!

Happy 2015!

And I don't even celebrate Christmas :)

We're nearly there. On EIM it's Zig Zag. I saw something like this around the internet:

And one more December hit for the Twinchie - Holly.

A further December theme on Moo Mania, "Merry Christmas".

To all my friends, who celebrate Christmas, have a merry one! I am thoroughly enjoying my Hanukkah week. We'll all come together at New Year's.

Yellow and White

Readers, please let me know whether word verification pops up when you try to comment. I will attempt to get rid of it if that's the case.

Yellow from Every Inchie Monday is fitting, as our summer is fast approaching. Like I said once before, I am not Van Gogh, but I love sunflower seeds.

Twinchie December themes continue. This week it's Snow. Since we don't have real snow, I have to make do with paper flakes.

Yo-yo and Santa

Every Inchie Monday is asking for Yo-yo this week, so I quilled a micro yo-yo from scratch. It is actually glued to the inchie, but I had to stand it like this, as it kept falling off the easel because of its weight  :)

The keyword for Twinchie is Santa, naturally, for December:

Xenon and Advent

And so begins the final month with Xenon in Every Inchie Monday. All I could come up with is a light globe, and a humble one at that. There is Xenon in the globe.

You know, December has become such a PC month. I don't celebrate Christmas, I celebrate Hanukkah. I embrace others celebrating Christmas, anything other than Christmas or not celebrating at all. And maybe I have offended someone by neglecting to mention something else that may be celebrated this month.....  blah, blah, blah.....   whatever.

I am convinced, though, that no one is offended by good wishes. So whatever you're starting to celebrate or not celebrate this month, be healthy and rich and laugh, and not just this month, but always. Do you know why I will be celebrating Hanukkah - because I like lights in the evening and I like sweets.....    oh, but that's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas. That's what they do in the city centre here - combine the two for the whole of December. See, marketing people are not PC, they are just happy to sell anything to anyone. So they thought - lights, food.....mmmmm, why not marry the two together and sell to all of them.

Anyway.......    here's the marketing department's Advent:
