Working on a Christmas magazine got me all excited to create a little something for Christmas. In fact, I am excited about the whole holiday season. I get to actually enjoy it for a change. It's looking up so far =)
I was also lucky to be thrifting and found that white Christmas tree, 4 feet of it for 99cents... owh, had to come home with me. I rinsed it in the tub with little dish soap and it could as well feel like its brand new to me. So now I want to pretty it all up for the holidays. I will try and work on some ornaments when I can.
So I got started with creating a little birdhouse ornament with a little shine and sparkly. The wooden birdhouse, was also a great find at the dollar store. They rarely have them so when I did see them I snatched a few of them (I = Hoarder)
I covered it with music sheets then for the roof I used actual cotton and sprayed a little glue on it then cover with clear glitters. Added a few ribbon roses and sparkly pipe cleaner thingies and some crystal beads... Stamped the greeting on a small banner and sprinkled that too. Perched a bird all cozy at the door and viola!!!...
Do you remember my other post about the Masquerade Ball Mask? I showed a Ball mask I created for a Marie Antoinette Mail Art group swap. My partner was Mary from The Damsel of Distress blog.
Well, today I got my beautiful package from Mary with the Oh, SO Gorgeous mask. We did get to tell out partners what our favorite colors are and I did mention, pinks and pastels!!!
So here is what I got today!!!
She also added a few lacie goodies which I'm sure will come handy in any of my creations soon. Thank you Mary!! =)
