I made the tree years ago by wrapping cotton batting 
around each limb of an ugly old green artificial one
I had sheared down.

Beautiful! Your love of paper reminds me of my love of fabric! My Grandma and Mom had stacks of fabric around when I was young because they sewed all our clothes...such great memories...I love all your paper crafts!!

Any kind of paper too and don't even think about reading my magazines before I look at them. They have to be new crisp pages lololol. Love your ornaments. We will be working on some this weekend too.

Hey... where have I been, oh yeah in the studio! I missed your last two posts. Can't wait to see you in WWC. I will keep a sharp look out.
Wish I could come and play... but no way this time of year. I am soooo under the gun. Donna calls and gives me the count down... she loves to freak me out.
Have a great evening

Gorgeous ornaments and so sweet that your father fostered your love of paper. Thanks for the info about the tree. I have been hoping to find a small vintage white or silver tree to hang up the little collection of pink ornaments I started last year. So far no luck so maybe I could make something similar to this??

These are wonderful Z!
My uncle used to own a wallpaper store when I was little. My Mom worked there and would bring me home old books or leftovers scraps. I would decorate shoe boxes for my Dawn and Barbie dolls! So much fun!

Oh my goodness I love the snowman and all the paper art...I soooo wish I lived close enough to join you!! Can't wait to see all the festivities and creations that will come out of your wonderful get together with 10 lucky students=)

I love your snowman, he's adorable. Your burlap flowerette is gorgeous too. I'd like to try that.
I know what you mean about loving paper. Sometimes though, I love a particular paper so much, I don't want to use, just keep it safe to look at. Hah!
Since I live in Hawaii, I guess I can't attend your class, but I'm sure it will be fabulous for all.
TFS and warm hugs to you--CreativeGrammie
