My studio was also open for the annual Christmas Stroll (haven't seen the commercial yet...yikes!). Hundreds showed up to check out my space. It was great fun. I forced over 100 paperwhite bulbs, so those really added to the uniqueness of my studio....great smell.. yummm!
This is a coffee cuff created from a thrifted felted sweater.
I've also been buying vintage slips at the thrift store, dying and embellishing them with lace and ribbon, buttons and flowers. They look really cute over a pair of jeans or leggings with boots.
And, this is a bookmark that I've been making as Christmas gift tags. May as well reuse them I say!
So, yeah...I've been creating quite a bit these past few weeks. But, one of the best creations I've ever made is my son. As I make gifts this year, I'm reminded on a daily basis that I won't be spending my Christmas with him and as much as I try to keep myself busy, it always comes back to thoughts of where he is and what he's doing.
Today, I devoted my morning pages to writing a letter to him. Even though he's halfway around the world living in a tent without a lot of the things we take for granted, I know that he'd want all of you to remember that the greatest gift he could give any of you is the gift of freedom. He's there for all of us.
