Can I just tell all of you how much I LOVE my Cricut!?! For those of you who don't have a paper cutting machine, I'm sorry. Save your pennies and get one. It will be SOOO worth it.
If you've been following me since at least Halloween, you know about my 36" of table space for any type of Holiday decorating. It's pretty much all I have with the exception of my mantle. After whipping up a few things from paper, this is what I've created for Christmas.
This artwork is actually using the same frames I used for my Thanksgiving artwork, which were an unfinished light wood.
I didn't want that look for my Christmas vignette, so I modified the frames by "re-facing" them with white posterboard. I cut a "frame" to fit, and then cut 1/2" wide strips to cover the inside thickness of the wood frame.
Sadly, I don't have a color printer, so I usually have to pass up all those awesome holiday printables out there. However, someone (I'm sorry, I don't remember who) offered one that would print fine in black and white. Thank you whoever you are, for this sweet Subway Art.
The little Santa on the left is "vintage"... well, it's something I've had since I was a child. Unfortunately, I don't remember the story behind it. Maybe, once my Mom reads this, she will enlighten me.
And now for the snowman... a couple of little black circles, an orange triangle, a hand cut hat, and a scrap piece of wired ribbon for a scarf. Stick them all on a lampshade and voila, totally cute Snowman!!
and lots of joy.
