Christmas Greetings

It feels like this week has crept up so quickly! It could have something to do with the fact that there is almost no snow on the ground, or the fact that the temperature has stayed at an unusually pleasant level...Or it could be because this year was so busy that I haven't had much of a chance to catch up with time...

Whatever it may be, I am glad that the Season's festivities are upon us!
I am looking forward to the family time, the yummy food, and a little break.

It will be just what the doc prescribed :) 

I have several projects to show you today, so bear with me!









First up, I have some cards and a decorated box created with Webster's Pages products!
I know these are unusual colors for the holidays, but every once in a while, I really like to switch it up! 

Besides, with a few birthdays that linger around this time of year, I have a feeling that these wintery, all-occasion cards & box will come in handy!

I've used a combination of Western Romance and Country Estate.
I say it time and time again, and I really do love just how well all of Webster's papers coordinate so nicely together! If you are anything like me, you probably have a pile of papers (that go waaaaay back) and although the prospect of yummy new designs can derail you from you using these old beauties, it is always nice to go back and use up some of that 'stash! I love that Webster's inspires me to do this. Every time I look at one of their new papers, I always think of how lovely they will look with a paper from one of their previous collections! And it never seems to fail :)


The lovely roses on the cards and on the little box, as well as the shiny little pearls, are both by Prima

Next up, I have a couple of decorated tins I wanted to show you! I got my inspiration from one of my favourite artists, Melissa Phillips. If you know her work, you will know that it is truly one of a kind. 

I wanted to use up some old Christmas tins I had, but wanted to give them a new life, so I took a page from Melissa's book and decided to spray paint them. 









Originally, they were to be used to package up treats for my sweet friends, however, I realized after packing one up, that the smell of spray paint doesn't seem to ease up over time...So all of the goodies ended up smelling like chemically-laden baked goods... 

So I opted for plan B - and forgot to photograph, of course - but I think my second option was a much better solution for the little gifts. 

I still wanted to show you the tins, which will hopefully get their fair share of Christmas action - I plan to stuff them with non-edible gifts :)

Thank you for bearing with my long post today. I won't be back until after the holidays, so I wish you all the very Merriest Christmas and a joyous holiday season with all of your loved ones!

Many Season's Greetings,
