I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday. I was happy to have my kids home for 2 weeks. We've had a great time with just a few more days to go.
I did manage to do some creating too. I made this Necklace for my son with lots of his own creative input.

Christmas tags

Well it's been busy busy trying to get ready for Christmas but I did manage to take a day to get together with friends to work on a few of the Tim Holtz tags. We had a great time and managed to get 3 tags done. They were pretty easy and a lot of fun. I learned some new techniques I'll use in other projects. Actually I couldn't sleep that night for thinking of how I was going to create some things with the background techniques. Hopefully I'll find some time to create over the holidays so I can get some sleep.

Tim's tag

I've been enjoying watching the progression of Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas and finally had to try one of his techniques. So here is a card I made using the tag #9 techniques.

Glass Tile necklace

It took me a while to work out the kinks in this necklace. Because it is made out of a glass tile and it doesn't have a hole to add a jump ring for the chain I had to wrap the back with embossed copper and hide a wire in between the copper and the tile. It worked out better that way since it needed something nice on the back anyway.

Here's a book that's been pushed around my studio for some time now. It started off being two separate pieces that came together to make this book. I did the metal embossing not knowing what I was going to put it on and I crackled the cover of the book without an idea to embellish it. So as they got shoved around they eventually came together as one. Destiny, this work better the less I try.

Nature mirror

Well this is kind of different for me. I had this mirror that I painted and crackled a while back for no particular reason except that I had excess paint I didn't want to throw out. Over the last few days this piece just sort of evolved with word transfers and inking and grunge board. I wish every project worked like that.

Another Show

Finally I'm blogging again. I have a few new things to show you but never enough time.

Well another craft show is over so I think this week will be a good blogging week. Here's a few pictures of out booth at the Stittsville show we just did on the weekend. It's always difficult to blend out different kinds of arts and crafts together but I think in the end it looked quite good.

I've made some more new jewelry and a jar angel that I'll post in the next couple of days.
