Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain.
La vie, ce n’est pas d’attendre que l’orage passe, c’est apprendre à danser sous la pluie.

Christmas Origami..

Here's some little Christmas trees that I made last week with the lovely Yuko. I added two more this evening.
Love the transparent one, difficult to fold, but worth it!

Distress Stain ideas from Tim

Well looks like I need to get more mini-misters!!!

Christmas Tags

Well I really did mean to post a blow by blow account (with images) of the design process for this year's tags, but time, work etc. Anyway here they are .

the finished tag from the front
waiting in line to be written ....

Back stamped

the production line!
the pocket which is sandwiched between the two tags
hmmmm needs some colour
The mat finished.

 The basic idea was to use the paper napkins that I've had lying about for a couple of years. I liked the colour and pattern. I peeled off the backing then used Glue ,' Seal to stick it to a tag.

A Joyous Christmas to all!
