First I picked out the ornaments which were a really pretty "vintagey" blue. Then I cut out some dies that reminded me of winter (I alternately used silver metallic cardstock by Ranger and some white glitter paper.) Isn't the Deer Family design adorable? It's a Tim Holtz design (the words are by Stephanie Ackerman). You can purchase them here and here.
I really enjoyed taking this little break to craft something festive! Sometimes you need to take a fifteen minute time out and make something fun, right? (SIDE NOTE: I also bought a white Christmas tree for my craft room! I think I'm going to put it right on my desk. It's only 2 ft. tall and was just $12.99! DEAL, right? )
What are some things you like to take a quick time-out for? Let me know in the comments below! I'd LOVE to hear your answers.
PS. I think it's HILARIOUS that you can see my reflection in every ornament AND my department and even my coworkers. LOL
