Hello Santa...



Santa...something so jovial about those cheeks. 
That grin that melts the snow.
A suit that warms the coldest of hearts. 
I have missed you so. 


A set of tags to start the season. 


Vintage card images that hinge to open and reveal...
book pages that were salvaged from an estate.


Freshly harvested vintage trims and some classic jingle bells.


Just a touch of needlework to remind the recipient who crafted them.
Signed and sealed with wrapping paper on the back.


Christmas gifts already finished and headed out into the mail.
Just a taste of the crafting I have been busy working on.

Hi Renee,
What a busy time of year this is...and, such a highlight for those who love to craft and create. You have such a magical touch, my sweet friend. I love those little trios of glittered bells. I can remember my Gramma wearing Christmas corsages with bells on them.
Blessings and fond friendship,
Carolynn xoxo

Renee,
These are so cute! Again, I just wish I had the vision...I can sit down with a ton of items in front of me and NOTHING comes to mind!!!!!!
I am frustrated I have my mini Christmas boxes to finish, and I am avoiding it, just for this reason...time to take a deep breath and dive in......

Nancy said...
