Christmas Goodies

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and for my friends in other countries, I hope you had a lovely week! I've taken advantage of some of my time off from work to work on a few Christmas treats. I've just added everything seen here to my shop. The first project I worked on has been simmering around in my head for the past several weeks. It is a Winter Wonderland scene. I had these silver rounds and was trying to think of something special to use them for. They seemed perfect for a little winter display. I used mica style flakes on the main tree and added some silver glitter embellishments and bottle brush trees. I sprinkled the "snow" with glitter so it really shines! I have one in my living room and the light really makes it sparkle!


That's a little silver glitter encrusted cardinal at the foot of the tree.


I think they make great centerpieces!

I couldn't get enough of the silver glitter so I came up with these glittered tree ornaments. Each one has a different holiday sentiment set on vintage ledger paper. I used vintage seam binding for the hanger.

I had a lot of fun creating these. Several people have asked if I will have any new jewelry items available. I hope to work on some this week! I'm already feeling the holiday stress. I got most of the shopping done but now we have wrapping, decorating, entertaining, Christmas cards! Ahh! Deep breath... There, now that is better.

Yours in holiday cheer,
