My view...

I fully recognize that I'm the most fortunate girl in America. THIS is the view from my seat in the craft room...



A few moments before this picture was taken the rain and hail had ceased, the wind had blown the storm passed my house and a beautiful rainbow appeared in the east.

I stopped for a few moments to gawk at the hail on the ground, to watch the fluffy clouds slowly blow by and then I got back to manipulating paper into cards.


A good time was had by all...

Decking the halls...



The holidays are all about making hand-crafted decorations (and cookies, and gifts, and... and... and...)

So I started with a simple banner. It reads "Merry & Bright"...



These are individually cut triangles, strung up with a very thin silver string (through holes at each top corner of the triangle).

The "fringe" or "pleat" across the top is a 1/2" x 12" strip of thin scrapbook paper. I ran adhesive across the back of the strip and then roughly folded / glued it to the top of each triangle.



I ran the edge of the scrapbook paper along the edge of a stamp pad to give it some color and depth. And then used a friends letter cutting tool cut out the letters! The letters are then capped off with some silver glitter/glue to make it resemble a frosting of snow (sorta).



Are YOU making any decorations, gifts, etc this holiday season?



And yes, I think I'll be hanging some twinkle lights with this banner... but that will have to wait for the weekend...



    

"Thankful" pennant banner... just in time for Thanksgiving!



Using a few pieces of 12" x 12" scrapbook paper I cut some triangles... and then decorated them.









I sure enjoyed hanging out in the craft room this afternoon...
