The Tree Is Up

The temperatures finally warmed up enough 
for us to get out and cut down a Christmas tree.  

And now the tree is up and the decorating is done.

Including a couple of the decorations I made this year. 

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

More Christmas Decorations

Making Christmas decorations has taken up lots of my time lately. 

There are some with trees....

and some with bicycles...

and some with branches.

And now I better get busy with getting a tree to hang these on...
and finish the shopping...
and wrap some presents .....
and do some baking ....
and clean the house.......

Christmas Decorations

I made these Christmas decorations just in time for 
the local Christmas sale a couple of weeks ago. 

They sold out very quickly, 
and I have been trying to find some time to make some more.

They have many layers, including paper pulp, tea bags, gesso and paint, 
and then images or stamps, some ink and collage bits 
before adding a final layer of paste wax. 

Maybe tomorrow I will have some time to play with some more of these
..... although I do have some snow shoveling to do!
