A little Inspiration...

A little inspiration can be found in this pile of clippings from a few years worth of magazines I had decided to tear out my favorites and make one inspiration book .. There all still loose clippings and pages tucked into a binder....I have been working on some cute little Christmas pretties to show soon... I'm feeling a little late this year when usually i am working on Christmas as early as July but better late than ever...

Check out this fabulous issue of Sew Somerset ...You can see sneek peaks inside at stampington.com ... I created something really pretty for this issue ..out of vintage french labels and old ephemera with stitches sewn about ...Theres just something about sewn paper that I just love ....
And I've been on the road a bit this winter .And as you can see we don't go anywhere with out my favorite Starbucks Christmas blend...I love it and usually buy enough of it to last me till March or so.. and what is it about there red cups that really get you in the Christmas spirit???



Anywho...... I look foward to posting my glittery little churches next time... I just love all that sparkles and anything loaded with glitter...

I was just thinking about you yesterday and was hoping all is well and that you are busy with Christmas!
Can't wait to see what you have been creating!
Warmly,

It seems a few of us are a bit behind on Christmas creating. But there will be time. One breath at a time.

Looking forward to seeing what you've been up to.

Can't wait to see what they published of yours!
I feel the same about my Diet Coke cans...when they add snowflakes I get all giddy.....

I am knee deep in magazine clippings, too! How funny that we are doing the same thing right now. As I was ripping through the pages earlier, I thought, "I must be the only nut doing this right now." I'm glad to see there's another. ;)
I bought some of those clear cellos sleeves for binders and am sticking the articles in there. It's a nice way to store them.
