Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays Everyone. Just sharing a bit of the decorations for this year. I didn't get my tree put up till the week before Christmas. But I had set up, decorated and taken down 5 trees prior to this. Yep for the craft fairs. It kind of made it not as exciting to decorate this year.

I opted not to use a tree skirt for but stacked some vintage books around the base to hide the stand and ground the tree. All of the ornaments were non breakable as we had a new addition to our household. Mr Jekyll who when it came to the tree turned into a destructive little Mr Hyde. I lost count of how many times I had to redecorate as he was obsessed with taking the holly out of the tree. His second passion was climbing the tree. 

So here are just a few of my favorite ornaments. You saw some of them last year. The Felty Fox and the fun Holly.

I added in these laser cut wood ornaments. Love the fox and owl. I also had a lot of snowflake ones.

The scene on the TV cabinet is similar to last years.

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope your Holidays are extra special!

St Charles West Craft Fair

Hello All,

Running a bit late posting these pics of the last craft fair of the season. It was on December 9th, so 9 days late. : ( 
The layout is the same as usual, but a bit of a squeeze as it was a 6x9 space. I stood behind the tree most of the day.

As usual I was running late and was still decorating the tree when the first customers got there.
I like the paper signs for the ornament prices. I removed the ones I didn't want to sell for $4 and made these fun book page ribbons to put in the branches.

Going Green ~ Tissue Box Cards

I just had my first Going Green now that FV has reopened and for this program I chose card making. 

The up-cycled portion of the program was using tissue boxes to supply the decorative element instead of scrapbook paper. 

I know they look a little flat in the photos. I took these at work and just laid them on the counter to take the picture. I needed them for my write up of the instructions. 

The Best Wishes card was lying on a piece of green card stock as the card base was the same shade of grey and it blended into the counter. 

The first two cards made use of nice sized rectangles as the focal feature. 

The third card uses four small squares combined to create the focal feature.  

On the last cards I used StazOn ink and stamped directly onto the tissue box  and then cut out around the image.
