Blue Christmas?


So, I was at Costco the other day and lo and behold they had Christmas stuff out already.  Yep!  Christmas stuff!  Right there in the same aisle as the back to school supplies and Halloween costumes.  I thought to myself, "Well, if they can . . . so can I!"  So, I have a couple of really cute (albeit very early) Christmas home decor items to show you.

Very pretty, right?  I stamped this the inserts for the tray using the Serene Snowflakes stamp set, and Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue inks, and Platinum Shimmer paint.  I accented the Whisper White cardstock with the beautiful new adhesive backed rhinestones.  Here is a closer look.

It is hard to capture the beauty and shimmer in photos, but believe me, in person, this is fantastic!

The second part I wanted to show you is this pretty candy bowl.

Please ignore the kids fingerprints.  Those show up perfect in a photograph . . . of course.  This project is so simple, but makes a really nice, quick home decor idea.  I took a simple glass rose bowl and used some of the Flurry Decor Elements to decorate it.  I took trimmed the bigger ones (cut in half actually) and then just applied them to the bowl.  You could easily get three of these size bowls out of one package.  Makes a perfect little last minute gift for a friend.

Anyway, that is my early Christmas gift to you.  Ho Ho Hope you like it.  (I know, horrible).

Thanks for stopping by.
