Christmas Projects


I feel as though I haven't been able to hit the publish button on this blog in quite a while...I've been making Christmas gifts for what seems like forever and have had to keep all of that under wraps.   It's been a good time creatively because I've tried a few new things this year.   


I'm not sure how it's possible that I have never stained wood before!  Now that I have, I'm hooked!  So few things give you instant gratification when you're a crafter but stain is absolutely one of them.

Some Rustic Christmas Tree Goodness

 
 
This is the first multi-piece wooden sign that I've made so far.  I stained the wood before I dry brushed it with an oatmeal colored paint.  I used the Silhouette to cut out the "Gather" stencil.

The Daily Prophet Headlines transferred onto 2 inch tiles.
 
 
 
The Silhouette got quite a bit of use this year:

 






 
Glitter ornaments were kind of the name of the game this year...I couldn't get enough...AND my studio floor will never be the same again lol!
