there has been a lot of christmas making going on late into the evenings here. from stamped gift tags to new matching stockings, paper lanterns and ornaments. the first half of the month was so busy i'm a bit ashamed to say i've not done any christmas shopping yet and there's only one week to go! how did this happen? i'm never a last minute shopper but you know how it goes.
at least the stockings are hung and we managed a rather charlie brown-looking tree for the kitchen. tea has fuel the way, this is my favourite mug at the studio.
this is a simple and very effective lighting project. i found the idea here and simply drew out a cityscape onto a piece of paper and wrapped it around a jar with a tealight candle in it.
i have to say that cavallini & co has the most beautiful stamp sets. we have a few boxes of them around at the artyard and i couldn't resist making a couple tags of my own for gifting this year. the deer head is a favourite.
finally, after spending four christmases together david and i have stockings in the same country at the same time. of course i have my own that hangs at my parent's house but it only seemed appropriate for us to start out this year with new ones. i stitched these up using a pattern from purlbee.
what have you been making lately?
