Long time, no blog...

Hey there bloggers, didn't realize it had been so long since I dropped in.  Have been busy I guess.  We are learning some new software at work and have been baking and making some goodies for my Annual Christmas Tea Party next weekend so I have been a pretty busy girlie of late.  Have slept some in there and been doing some physical therapy on my leg too, no wonder I'm tired when I fall into bed at night.  It's kept me off the streets and out of the bars though, so that's a good thing, lol.

Found this little snowflake on The Gentleman Crafters blog.  He made a video and then someone he knows made one with her little boy, it was pretty cute.  I watched his first, then hers.  Jim used the tiny attacher to assemble his snowflake and his friend used hot glue.  I think the hot glue would have been easier to work with.  I made a smaller snowflake than he did and it was hard to get the tiny attacher in some of those tight little spaces, pretty tricky.  Hot glue would have definitely worked better, note to self.  Any way, I embellished mine with gold stickles and embossing powder and a mist of heirloom gold Perfect Pearls Mist.  Then I set about adding a bauble.  That turned out to be pretty labor intensive but it worked out in the end.  See what you think.

I started with 4 inch squares, I think he used 12 inch squares and his was huge.  Which would be cool if you were going to hang it from the ceiling or something.  Pretty cool hugh?

I'll be back later with some photos of my December ATC.  They have been done for a while now but don't want to let the cat out of the bag just yet, no copying, lol!!!  The theme for December was Christmas with a twist and you had to use a photo as the embellishment.  I really like how mine turned out.  More on that later.

In the meantime, hope your holiday preparations are going well and you have a joyous Holiday Season!
