I am very excited about the holidays as you can see. If it wasn't for the kiddos, I would have skipped Halloween all together and starting working on the Christmas tree. I started decorating for Halloween yesterday and I am almost done. And I know that compared to many, I am very mild on that particular holiday decor.
And how could I not be excited about Christmas, there's the magazine I am working on, bursting with eye candy and I received a package from Kirstie from Adeline Country Cottage all the way from Australia. She is sponsoring my Creative Challenge for Creating Vintage Charm. I will be posting pictures on the magazine blog, of what is going to be included with the Prizes.
I also have been on the hunt for ornaments for the new tree I bought. Yesterday at the thrift store I found a box of these creamy vintage white ornaments and after kiddos went to bed, I starting playing =)
I don't know about you, but most of the time, I start with an idea in my head but it almost never goes that way as soon as I start working and find that this doesn't work, or that will work better. But that the creativity at work right?!!!
I started stamping and glittering the ornaments, like you see the one with the crown. I love it but I wanted more pink so then I pulled out my stashes of ribbon and trims and ribbon roses.
I just had to add the touch of white feathers!! I love feathers floating on the tree.
Well, it may be that all you will be seeing from here till Christmas, is any more ornaments I will be coming up with. Time is very limited and what time I have is going to be dedicated on filling the tree. Thats my plan anyway. Like I said, who knows where creativity will direct me!!!
Have I ever shown you the little Marie Antoinette Birdhouse?? Its a beauty and I received that from blogging best friend Debi from Life in my Studio in a swap in the Marie Antoinette Mail Art swap.
Well, two year old prince wants to read stories with me so... I will go read the Little Engine that Could and I hope you are inspired to create something fun today... Todolooo!!!
