Check out my tutorials

I have a blog posting that is supposed to appear on - just click on the Crop Spot - but as of right now - noon EST, Sarah's SEI posting is still the top one but I am sure by tomorrow my tutorial on Color using these 2 layouts as examples will be up. Both of these layouts were created using the December Sampler kit (I created 7 layouts from that kit - incredible!) For the above layout, I handcut the reindeer and painted the poinsettia.
I used lots of Webster's Pages in this layout and handcut the bird, the flower, and the title. We will also be having our 2nd challenge this coming week. Check it out!

This little table decoration was created for the and I posted a little tutorial there on how to make it. I think it would go very well with the Blue Christmas wall hanging that I did earlier but also you could use it as a New Year's table decoration. It's quick and easy, and the supplies are minimal.
I have been reading about all of the bad weather - lots of snow and cold - in other places and I remember how much fun snow was when I was a child but how much I hated it when I was an adult in Denver and had to drive to work - and it was always dark. Brrrrrrrr! It is cold here today and will get down into the 30s tonight which is really cold for here - our heat pumps are not designed to heat very much so Dan and I just dress warmly - we actually have to wear socks - what a concept!!!!!
Have a wonderful week - my son is coming over for Christmas and I am looking forward to seeing him again. We always talk at least once a week but we only get to see each other a few times a year so it's always nice (except that Hana is not happy!!!!! She comes into the room and sees us talking so she comes over to me and insists on being petted while she glares at Brian - and sometimes if we are sitting on the couch, she will jump up between us and climb on me - it's a riot!). I will post again this week with some new things that I have made and with some Christmas scenes around my house.
Take care, stay warm, and thanks for reading.
