Happy New Year, everyone!

We had a quiet New Year's Eve last night - a couple of adult beverages and Chinese takeout that was delicious!

Although I am a tad late posting my photos, we did actually have snow on Christmas! It was the the 1st time in 17 years it snowed on Christmas in Georgia. Although we did not get nearly as much as my friends in Boston, we can say it did snow!

A few last-minute glitter ornaments I made using a tutorial I found on Youtube.

I will leave you with a photo of my granddaughter at her very 1st visit with Santa.

Merry Christmas!

Today's Christmas project is simply my glitter houses. The one on the left I made last year and the two smaller ones were done this year. The small houses are actually paper mache ornaments I found at Michaels and snipped off the jute hanger on top. I removed the window frames, painted them and then reglued them. The snow glitter is Martha Stewart tinsel glitter.

I also made a Santa door hanger for my granddaughter, CJ. I found it on Kim Hughes blog.

For my version, I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities die, PTI Holiday Tree stamps, Making Memories key, bells, ribbon and faux vintage pp.

Took a break from blogging for a bit to concentrate on a few Christmas projects.

The most important one was to make my granddaughter's Christmas stocking. Although, I really wanted to make it out of velvet, my sewing machine fought me all the way and the lining kept shifting, so after 3 attempts, I made it out of red felt and used Papertrey Ink dies and buttons to embellish it.
