Monkey business......

Bella Banner

Christmas Bella Banner.... I was able to go to the fabric store and find fabric
that looks like SU! Bella Rose paper! So exciting! So I came home and transformed it into this sweet banner. I added a touch at the bottom with
the teardrop beads from the pretties kit. The banner is made from Pennant
die from SU!

Pretty Packaging......

Cute packaging, The gingham peppermint holder is made with a 4 1/2 by 5/1/2 piece of red riding hood paper, I then cut the gingham out to fit and sewed it up tied ribbon and added some pretties kit accessories and the candy sticks. The other is a

tin of homemade hot chocolate packaged simply with ribbon and felt

snowflakes and rhinestone brads........

Naughty or Nice!!!

Getting Ready for Christmas......

I am sooo excited it's the holiday season! Put a few things out today, love to mix things up a bit, a rabbit here, a bear there, pointsettia's, artichokes. It's fun to take things from around the house to decorate with..........
I love how this turned out! It looks like wood but is actually canvas. I went to the local craft store and bought and 18 x 18 canvas and then 9 smaller 4x 4 in ones and painted them with latex oatmeal colored paint, let dry and then dry brushed some burnt
umber on top of the oatmeal and clued the canvas together and added a
vinyl flourish and photos of my girlies!
