Pretty Baubles

* Update - Free shipping on everything Australia and Overseas for the month of December in my shop. *

I think the next few posts will be all Christmas related. It was another long and busy day at work. I'm completely over it.

Anyway, I've tried to be creative in my down time. I was inspired by some pretty baubles I saw in a catalogue. I decided to make some myself.

This is a scan from the Domayne catalogue. The little bubble part is my inspiration. It's a glass bauble filled with feathers.

Here's my version. A plastic bauble and turkey feathers from Art Riot

I used pastel coloured feathers for this one. The real being they ran out of white ones at the shop.
This was taken last night in the city. It was the lighting of the Christmas tree, which Jason and I didn't get to see as we just wanted to go to Borders. It was such a beautiful night through a bit windy. My picture is a bit blurry as well. Hard to take pics at night without a flash. 

I thought I would try and make some Christmas mini note cards. This is what I came up with. It was inspired by a magazine. 

I adore Cristina Re paper. The butterfly is made from some Cristina Re paper that came free with the Better Homes and Gardens magazine. I hope to put this set up in my shop. I hope you like it.

Anyway, until next time.

Gracie,
I have been searching on line for card teachers here in SE QLD and found your blog so delightful I really had to stop and say that you have some lovely things going on here in your blog space.

My papercraft store is located at Raby Bay, Cleveland and I can see we are both fans of Christina Re. Do you teach locally at all? Or could you recommend any good teachers? I am expanding the shop and looking for new talent.

Oh, those ornaments with the feathers! Those are just dreamy. You are so creative! I bet they just look so soft and lovely with the tree lights shining through them.

And your new notecard packs are so adorable!

I hope work doesn't get too crazy busy for you as Christmas day draws closer. Sometimes it just seems like last-minute shoppers go slightly insane, so I hope everyone stays pleasant :)
