Wrapping Up Christmas

I have always. Loved wrapping Christmas presents, and making them pretty.  This year I've addenda few photos to packages for a little reminiscing, and added flair (plus, no need for tags, although tag making is a favorite of mine :)

I like the vintage look you get with printing directly on cream Cardstock.
Also a few new tags from my etsy shop,

Time For Black Friday Crafting Day!

We had a great time crafting on Black Friday! this year I made three wreaths, one for the front doors one for the kitchen and I'm still trying to decide if I want to put the third in the guest bath, in my studio, or in the master bath....  here's a little peek.....

We also made more herb infused EVOO's and vinegars;

The pics are a little dark (it's getting dark so darn early as of late! I really ha fun decorating the bottles, I think I'll keep going on them....

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to share some more photos from Ashley's weding...

It's Been Awhile...

I know it shouldn't take 6 mos. to get back to 'normal' after a daughter's wedding, but it HAS taken me that long to get back to doing the things I normally do....
With that said I'd like to share a few photos of Ashley's lovely winter wedding:
Sticky mess, working with fresh greenery...
It took all morning and into the early afternoon to set up the tables and decor, I loved working with the greenery Stan and the boy's had gone out and cut, Sethy's found horn sheds, some manzanita I spritzed with gold paint, and LOTS of candles, tucking different blingy branches here and there.  Could not have done it without my BFF, Susan....she was definitely my right hand girl.  Also, both Seth and Griffin, helping hang the tiny lights inside tulle over the beams.  The maids and groomsmen were also there for anything that needed be done.  Actually, it was Stan I could turn to and say...'I'm hungry,'....and he was at the store in a minute!  This is just the setting up of the tables, not how they ended up looking...
it turned out so pretty....
for the bridal table, my sprial flowers made with bazzill bling in black, tied with black tulle on ecru... it all went well without many hitches.....
More with the sister's all did the food, from the wedding cake :)

Tulle, Lace, Burlap + Kraft Paper = Wedding!

That's right, tulle, lace, burlap and kraft paper is about all I have seen for the last week....I have been making tablecloths for my daughter's wedding reception, I have to say, I LOVE how they turned out!!  The combination sounds strange, but think of a slightly rustic setting, a beautiful high=beamed building, with a beautiful big fireplace  in a snowy setting, using greenery, antlers and add a bit of fluff (the lace and tulle) = wedding!

all rolled up and ready to go next week-end (I hope I have everything else ready :)...........
