A Christmas table and hanging holiday cutters

I'm finally able to use my computer to post again, and it feels good. My laptop wouldn't go online. I'm sure the problem started when my daughter downloaded a game she wanted to play. I was at my hubby's computer reading troubleshooting info out loud while he pushed the buttons on my computer. We fixed it! It's so nice. You don't realize what's on your computer until you can't access it.

There were a couple of photos that didn't make it into previous posts, so here they are! This is a 4-foot table set up in my studio with a variety of handmade items, including Christmas cards, appetizer plates with decor elements on them, metal snowflake tealights on mirrors, and punched cardinals clipped onto tree branches with mini clothespins. The SNOW word is made of wood. I bought it recently at a craft fair at the pavilion. It holds a votive candle behind the snowman.

Here's the project I copied out of the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog. I used Jolly Holiday dsp with cookie cutters, ribbon and a dowel. I hung this across the coat rack at the studio. It looks much better in person!

So this week is all about filling out Christmas cards and getting them into the mail. I hope your week is productive! Check back later today and tomorrow for cards I'm planning to make using a couple of sketch challenges.
