This year I am really into birds, so I decorated with lots of birds, I found these birds at a thrift shop all in a big zip lock bag and had them for a couple of years not knowing what to do with them, so I tea dyed them and added ribbons around their necks and put them on our aqua and silver tree. It was really pretty when the lights are on everything sparkles. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I know we did, our son and new daughter in law were here from Seattle and our other son and his fiance were home from school. It was great to all be together again.

Check out her new sheets at: These are the sheets I used:, and and The two little cuties are my sister's grand babies. They are a year and a half years old. They were born 11 days apart. Braden and Bella. I know she will love this.

I made this Marie angel paper doll for a swap with the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group. She is 10 inches tall, with dresden wings and star. She is two sided, so that you can choose what side you want to show. I really enjoyed making her, I have only made a few paper dolls before. I used Cassandra's beautiful Marie digital image. She has an Etsy store with lots of beautiful digital collage sheets: The sheet is: I am a member of her Design Team. I hope Betty likes her.

These are the Marie Christmas ornaments that I made for the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group. I really enjoyed making these. I had a vision and was a little nervous as I did not know if they would come out ok. I started with small cricket cages that I painted gold and made new bottoms for. I made swings and attached a glittered bird with a crown inside. I decorated the front and back so you have a choice of which side you want showing. The front is open and the back is covered with lace. I am a member of Cassi's design team, so the Marie I used came from her Etsy Store:, and the sheet I used is: She has lots of beautiful digital collage sheets for sale, please check out her store. I hope the ladies that receive them enjoy them. Happy Holidays.
