Merry Christmas

It’s finally Christmas Day and for the first time in twenty-two years we didn’t spend Christmas Eve celebrating and/or share the unwrapping of Christmas presents under a Christmas tree on Christmas morning with our daughter, Kristin. We did see her and her boyfriend, John, later in the afternoon, however, when we picked them up to take them to San Francisco for Xmas dinner. Having dinner with the two of them made up for the oh so boooooorrrrring morning! -Next year there will definitely be more than the red bows on Ceaytie’s ears for decorations!

Yesterday I received my final (I think) handmade holiday card.  Helen Boz, a lovely, talented lady in Modesto sent it to me, and I had to study it to see how it was done.   It looks like she took a sheer, organza type of material, with a glittered pinecone design printed on it, sprayed adhesive to a piece of ivory Stardreams cardstock (for extra shimmer) and wrapped the material around it. Then she layered that to a piece of cardstock to which she sprayed more adhesive (or used some sort of sticky-dot adhesive) and covered it in glitter. She layered the completed panel to a gold Stardreams card. I had to describe it, because photos never do justice to cards with glitter and sparkle. Trust me, the card is full of shimmer, shine and glitter!
