Christmastime Already??

Hmmm....I last posted my 4th of July stuff.  Guess it's been a while since my last update....

The holidays sure snuck up on us! I just put away some lingering pumpkin deco last week! But this morning I officially got in the Christmas Spirit by stomping around a tree farm and hauling a big, tall and skinny Noble fir home.
I think it's about 10 feet tall or so (maybe taller? It may surprise us once we get it inside :-)),  perfect to tuck into a corner of our family room. Good thing we have a 2-story ceiling in there!

Also Christmas-y are two swap creations I did to trade over at blissfulArt, a holiday card and tag.  I love to make the little pleated rosettes to layer up, and now it will be easier because a friend just loaned me her scoring board.....Score!

I added in a little bit of holiday de-stash for my partner, too.




The package from my swap partner got lost in the mail....crappy swap stuff always seems to happen to me (she says, whining).  But I still enjoy having an outlet for these frivolous little bursts of creativity.


Happy Holidays!

  3. Your card and tag are simply perfect! Love them! Those pinwheel rosettes are one of my favorite trims. I have a few dies from Tim Holtz that save my tendinitis when making them. Beautiful work, Maggie!
