Hey there! Finally got all my decorating finished (cards still in the works) and I thought I'd show you around. So grab your cuppa and join me won't you? My choice is coffee at the kitchen table for my T Stands For Tuesday gals.
This is the tree in the den filled with handmade ornaments from swaps, exchanges and gifts thru the years. I love this tree!
These displays are also in the den.
This is the tree in the sitting room.
The two displays above are also in the sitting room as are the stockings:
I made the first three many years ago.
And in the living room:
This is a real mix of things including the Elvis ornament I bought hubby some years ago as he is such a fan of his music. And I love my Hallmark singing sleigh riders!
Hubby has yet to notice my newest Santa edition for this year (the Irish one) :):)
And -in our home at least-it just wouldn't be Christmas without this guy:
Bought him for hubby some years ago during a time when he really did act like the Grinch when it came to the holidays. And now we just have fun about it!
Hope you enjoyed my tour. So now I want to know - how do you decorate?
For the art part I have a wintry journal page to share:
I created my girl in the style of Julie Nutting. Background is a deli paper gelli print on which I stamped snowflakes. The image was collaged with text paper and cardstock. Face and hair painted with acrylics. I embellished the hat with a pinch of glitter and bling. The words are stamped with an old foam alphabet set.
And just for fun I played with the colors in photoshop and these are the results:
That's all I got for now. I am TOTALLY enjoying record high temps in our neck of the woods -65 F!!
Linking this post to Art Journal Every Day; Art Journal Journey (theme is collage); Art It Friday - Show Your Face; Paint Party Friday; Simon Monday Challenge (theme is Just A Pinch); T Stands For Tuesday; Try It On Tuesday (theme is snowflakes, snow or winter whites). Hope to find you in one - or more of these wonderful places along the way!
