Today I'm sharing a project that I created for the 7 Gypsies Blog a while back with 7 Gypsies' ATC & Photo Display, and they're featuring it today on the Gypsy Blog. I actually created this winter tree for a Christmas display, and used it with my holiday decor, but I am leaving it out for a few months yet as the pale blues and silvers are perfect for winter decor after the holidays.It sits on my kitchen window pass through, and I love to sit and have a hot cup of tea and look at its prettiness! We need a little sparkle and glow in January, here in Ohio, when we've removed all other traces of the holidays and taken down the trees, lights and decorations. It serves as a reminder to me that even in the midst of winter, nature is abundant with beauty. I used the tiers of the display as branches and hung ornaments and tags created with papers from the Carolina Flocked and Hudson Valley Collections from 7 Gypsies. I also used these Princesca dangles to resemble glittering ice, and lots of silver and blue ornaments found on shopping jaunts.
I also received a very nice introduction on the Pink Paislee blog yesterday. If you get a chance, check out the other DT introductions, there is some serious talent on that team!
Off now to do some much needed organizing and de-cluttering in my art studio. I've set up another desk in the room and am frequently joined by my eager little miss, who keeps herself busy with scissors, glue stick, letters and lots of pretty papers to cut and paste! She's working on a mini menu for her American Girl doll (she received Marie-Grace for Christmas) and takes her everywhere! Happy crafting, hope you get time to create something lovely this weekend!
