Christmas in July

Christmas is my favorite holiday and my busiest time for my business with all the craft shows and boutiques.  So, in preparation for that, I’ve already started increasing my inventory and making Christmas themed items for the season’s shows.  This will be my first season showcasing my new love and obsession of mixed media canvases, but some wonderful treasures will also be returning; vintage teacups, altered frames and decoupaged crosses.

Here is what my work station normally looks like.  Although, I have a a den and store all my inventory and supplies there, I find myself working on the kitchen counter.  That way I’m still able to be out with the family.

I’m loving how these Christmas tree mixed media canvases came out.  Not your traditional holiday decoration, but still so festive.

This is one of my favorite pieces.  I love making these dress forms.  This particular piece combines all sewing themed items, fabric, lace trim, buttons, spool, and sewing pattern tissue.  All pulled together with the message and scripture that we are all unique, fearfully and wonderfully made.

Decoupaged or altered frames are one of the first treasures I began making for my business and I still love making them.  This season I’m incorporating some kind of lace trim or swatch to all of my frames and canvases.  I love how it adds that vintage shabby look.

I’ve added some new scents to my soy candles this season.  Stay tuned for Hazelnut Coffee, Sandalwood and Pineapple Sage!  But I will also have my favorites of Lavender, Vanilla and Cinnamon, along with many others.

So that’s what I’m working on so far.  I’m already booked for 2 Christmas boutiques.  If you are in the Metro Phoenix area please come see me at Operation Jingle Ball on November 2nd and Believe Boutique on November 8th and 9th.  Check out my facebook page for locations and times.

Blessings,
