WHOA! Looks like a tornado went through the studio!


I mean it!!!
I had to finally stop today and start gathering the debris and
putting each and every item back where it belongs!

My sweet sister-in-law placed a wonderful order with me and I had stuff
slung all over the studio!!!
I took a few photos of my finished projects if you want to take a look:

Several of these bottle brush trees, adorned and captured in jars...





Here they all are....I so hope the recipients love them!!!



Have you ever used one of these clear plastic "paint" cans for gifts?
I packaged each of the three ornaments in a clear cello bag, then used Christmas gift wrap
to make a fold over topper and stapled it on. I placed all three ornaments around the outside
and filled the center with wonderful, clear shred!



I added a bit of gift wrap to the top and of course had to add seam binding bundles to each side!










I even managed to make a few extra bottle brush tree jars to sell in my Etsy shop!
This one's already sold but you know I had to show you...
I just love this amazing shade of blue, don't you?






This sweet one is left...placed in my Etsy too ~






Now just to finish a few little snowman ornaments and then I think this little workshop
will be done for the season....and I'll be back to creating everyday new goodies.

Thank you always, always for stopping by to see what I'm up to!!!
You always inspire me and I love sharing with you ~

Wishing you a wonderful Friday dear friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn
