Happy creative holidays
Season’s greetings from my house to yours! This year I put tiny white twinkle lights on the tree and strung some cranberries for garlands. Simple and old fashioned just the way I like it. The garlands dry and can be used from year to year.

My old teddy bears sit beneath the tree guarding the packages, reminding my childlike spirit to come out and not take myself too seriously.
Have a wonderful loving holiday time, filled with color, beauty, creativity and inspiration.

It is really bright. Continue reading
