Scrap Magic and Holiday Glitter

I wish I could make this kind of stuff. Alas, I cannot. And thats why I love Denise Morrison. She is so amazing at putting found objects together and turning them into little bits of heaven. Denise was ever so kind enough to make a few French Bleu Vintage original art pieces for the Holidays. And are they ever gorgeous ~ I love the soft blue and ivory shades she used ~ so serene. What I love about the banners is that they are not just for the Holidays ~ you can love them all season long. You'll have to head on over to the shop to see them all ~ I have a few posted here.

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who left suggestions on how to get my lovely 2 year old Roro bean to sleep. I think a few factors came into play concerning this. Not the smallest which is crazy Mama running around for Christmas. They totally pick up on your manias and I think it makes them nervous. So I put everything away and I am trying to lead the less manic Holiday again (please see second post) this time I mean it. I tried once to get the kids to pose for a photo...once. I am now resigned to using the photo of Chesca (our sweet 5 year old white German Shepherd) with the NY Yankees Santa hat on to put in our Holiday cards this year. Not that I'm a huge fan of the Yankees ~ its just a cute photo and easier than getting our kids to pose. What's so wrong about that?? Are the Holidays only to show off our human children ~ I think not!!

  3. Denise...Pearl - Hahaha. Maybe she was just looking to get her beer on!
    Dede...I look forward to that Christmas card. I'm sure it will rekindle fond memories of the Christmas Eve that Dakota bit my nose!!! Ahhh, the memories.......

  4. These are such beautiful color combinations. don't see light blue too much for Christmas decor but it's beautiful!
