An Enchanted Christmas

Once again we have been busy getting ready for another Christmas boutique sale event. This year our theme is An Enchanted Christmas. Along with getting ready for this wonderful sale I have taken on a seasonal job making Christmas wreaths for a local landscape and nursery company. Trying to do both has been challenging, but I am determined to do it all. If no one has ever told you how hard it is to make wreaths I will tell you now that it is so.

My friend Tracy and I have luckily been working on setting up this sale for a while now and it is coming together nicely. Every sale and every year is a little different. This one will be no exception. We cannot wait to see their faces when they walk in the door! We have a wonderful guest list of ladies who shop while the men folk are hunting. It is fun for all and we create tours as other ladies do the same at their places.

Here is a sneak peak at our studio!

In years past we have always done the traditional Christmas trees in our studio and this year we decided with our space being so precious we would do something different. In my next post I will share with you the photos and tell you all about it. I cannot give out too many details or I will spoil the surprise for our shoppers!

Here are a few of the things I have been working on with my rose painting...

Above is a canvas giclee print of my painting that is stretched on stretcher bars. I have also been working on note cards of my print. Along with that I will be offering gift tags and more note cards and tags with other art I have created. I am so excited to share it with you!
