We now have all our Christmas decorations up and it is feeling quite festive around here! I am so thankful for this time of year. We have so many blessings and the joy of the season to celebrate. I love pulling out all the Christmas music and focusing on the greatest blessing - the birth of a special baby 2000 years ago! It can be hard not to get caught up in the rush of the month but I encourage you to take time to think about why we celebrate Christmas and the love that God showed us by sending his only Son to us to be our Savior. I like to make projects that help me to remember that. I've had this project in mind for quite some time. I love to make scenes and I think this one came together well. I did a Halloween version back in October but this is the one I was originally thinking of (and it got done in time for THIS Christmas! Score!)
The container is a candle holder from Target. Of course I used lots of wonderful Tim Holtz dies on the parts inside. The house is based on a Christmas tag he did a few years ago. I used a lot of shimmery mists and glitter on the parts so it really sparkles. I'm entering this in the Inspiration Emporium blog's December challenge which is to create a project that has the word "joy" in it. I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog house rules challenge. Thank you for looking and Merry Christmas!
