Christmas Time is Here!

I receive a newsletter from May Arts ribbon (www.mayarts.com).  They sell wholesale only, but they have a fun Blog with lots a ideas, tutorials, giveaways and challenges.  I finally decided to participate in a challenge.

May Arts sent me four ribbons and I was to create a Christmas project using each of them.  Here it is:

  I call it "The Gnomes at Home for Christmas"

I found these Gnome couples for sale a few years ago and fell in love - The lady reminds me of my image of the perfect Grandma:  A big smile and a big lap to hold the grandchildren on.

I made these boxes last year:

They didn't sell in my little stall in "Wishes and Dreams".  Wrong clientele - mainly people looking for Jewelry, purses, and commercially made stuff.  I'm putting these up for sale in my ETSY shop...

Cannon Pro 9000 Mark II - Great Printer!!!

My Epson Artisan finally gave up printing my heavy card stock tags, so I got a new printer for Christmas (a bit early, I know).  After much research, and some advice from Melissa Walker, creative genius behind the creations for sale at Immortal Visions on ETSY, I settled on the Cannon Pro 9000 Mark II.  It's strictly a printer, but prints my heavy card stock beautifully without a moment's hesitation!!!!!!  It will also print wide/long paper.  I love it!!

I'm keeping my Epson for the scanner and to print standard weight papers.

Speaking of Immortal Visions, check out these awesome Christmas tags I bought from her - they're just gorgeous!!   Here's the link to her store...  http://www.etsy.com/shop/ImmortalVisions?ref=seller_info

Here's the last of this season's Halloween creations - I have started on Christmas, finally.  I was thinking of the theme...It was a dark and spooky Christmas.  What do you think?

Christmas Tag Freebie

I have been spending many hours playing with Photoshop Elements.  I just finished some Christmas tags and added a link so you can download and print them.  The one shown includes an image from The Christmas Carol, illustrated by Arthur Rackham, one my favorite illustrators!
