Happy New Year everyone! So sorry it has been so long since my last post. I am really going to have to rethink this whole blog thing after the first of the year. I am just not very good at fitting it in my schedule. I believe that I will change things up a bit and just post some pics (with not much explanations) and if anyone has a question about how things were done they can leave a comment. The posting instructions and item numbers just takes sooooo much time. Time I just don't seem to have. If I can get the pictures taken and adjusted for posting that is about all I got! Anyhoo......Thought I would share with everyone my Hostess Appreciation project for this year. It is a printers tray (I have also seen painters tray?). So much fun!! We used many different pieces of DSP and lots of embossing and embellishments. I believe the ladies were quite happy with their finished products.

 The bells, Merry Christmas sentiment, and wreath were all embossed. The wreath also has some Dazzling Details in cherry for the berries.
 We added some Dazzling Details to Santa and the center of the Poinsettias. Also a little Crystal Effects to Santa's glasses. Thanks ladies for the great ideas. My Santa was a little plain when we started. Deck the Halls is also embossed.
 Don't ya just love the Christmas tree?????? OMG one of my favorite parts. Little oragami folds, much easier than it looks. Added a little Crystal Effects on the berries for the holly and some scoring to make the leaves look real.
 Sorry this pic is a little blurry. The family is embossed and we added a little Dazzling Details on the pinecones to make them shimmer.
 Ok, this is my favorite part. Paper ribbon. Love, love, love!!!
The reindeer and the Merry and Bright are both embossed.
Hope you enjoyed the project today. New rules! If you have any questions about this project please send me an email or post a comment and I will get right back to you. I hope everyone has a great New Year!
