Once the tree is decorated, the garland is placed around the doors, and the candles are set in the windows, the fun really begins! Notice how the elegant, hand-crafted bows and professionally wrapped gifts enhance the beauty of this Christmas tree.
Word Games Anyone?
A client just provided me with the most unusual commission I have had to date - writing numbers on letter tiles for a word game that sounds like babble! She collected these tiles over the years until a friend joked that she needed a quilt and she would have a fun word game with them. The friend did not realize that she talked herself into a huge job! The quilt is finished, the letter trays have been created by another friend, and I had the honor of placing point values on each letter tile! The game is going to be unveiled at a church game event soon! How many points for the word F-U-N? :)
Christmas Gifts for a Daughter
Her mom asked me to make them special and extra froofy! She was very pleased with the result!
Here is a nautical themed specialty gift package that I recently was commissioned to complete. Lots of burlap gives it masculinity, while the grosgrain and burlap ribbons give it elegance. The inside was packaged with the striped grosgrain ribbon tied into a "necktie" for one of the gifts and a bow for the other - giving the impression of a bride and groom! It was so fun to design!
