Merry Christmas to you!


Just stopping in to wish you a very Merry Christmas filled with much love, joy and peace. I'm happy to be spending today with my family. I feel so blessed by having the people I love the most around me today and every day! And, we are enjoying a White Christmas for the first time in years. It's beautiful!

The photo is of a milk box decoration my daughter and I made for a contest by the company that delivers fresh milk and eggs to us every week. My neighbor brought me huge pinecones she got from a forester who brought them from an old growth forest. I added Tombow liquid adhesive and mica flakes (both Stampin' Up! products) for snow, and I made a banner that says "Moo-ry Christmas to All!!!" because we made cows pulling Santa's sleigh (which my daughter made out of a couple of Top Note diecuts and candy canes). Santa is an older ornament we had, and we tied some tinsel ribbon (retired SU! product) around him and the cows' necks. More mica flakes were sprinkled into glue for the snowy ground cover.

Hugs, Mary Ann
