'Tis the Season' for an Inspiration Journal Challenge

It's time for the December Inspiration Journal Challenge! This month the theme is 'Tis the Season' and anything goes!

You may remember the Halloween spools I made in October. I promised that I would make some Christmas versions and I did! (I still have two left so we will see if those get 'Christmasfied' as well.) I really packed on the wintry Christmas goodness with lots of Tim Holtz and various findings from my stash. Onward for some closeups:

Number two spool has a front and a back side:

Two sides are better than one!
I'm also going to enter these into the Emerald Creek Dares Christmas challenge and the Frilly & Funkie 'Tis the Season' challenge. =)

    1. thanks Angela! I actually found the spools at a rummage sale. The large one is about 4 in tall and the short one is about 1.5 in tall. You might find something similar at a craft store.
