taking a break

Sadly I have to take a break from my blogging. My camera broke and I am not sure it can be repaired and if not, I don't know when I'll be able to replace it.

I went to use my camera on Christmas Eve and to my dismay it wouldn't turn on! So, for now I will be taking a break... hopefully it's not too long.

Vintage Inspired Christmas House

I have always loved little vintage paper houses. I think they are sweet and charming. I built this one out of chipboard, paint, glitter paper, and lots of glitter.

This house I made as a gift for someone, but I think I may have to spend some time and build a few for myself.
Happy Holidays!

Doll Clothes

I don't really sew, but these were pretty simple and I didn't make too many mistakes. I decided to sew some doll clothes for my daughter to give to her friend for Christmas. Have you seen the "glitter" fabric that they sell now? It is so much fun. I bought some for the dress. The jacket is made out of wool felt.

I hope she likes her present. I know I do. :)

Mini Paper Stockings

I cut out these cute stockings from patterned paper and stitched down the sides and embellished them with some paper flowers. I filled them with candy canes. I think they will make perfect gifts for my girls to give to their friends, don't you?
Happy Holidays!

Silver & Gold Garland

I love this time of year and I love doing Christmas projects. I had a lot of fun making this silver and gold garland out of silver foil paper, gold glitter and old book pages. I think it is fun for Christmas, but I think it will be even prettier for New Year's Eve.

I used a circle scallop punch and folded the paper to make the flower. I cut out leaf shapes from the book pages and added gold glitter to the edges.
I love how it turned out. Happy Holidays!
