It has been a long time!

It has been such a long time since I posted some pictures that I am going to share two different projects that I have worked on for Christmas and after the holiday.  The first one (nine) were Christmas presents that I painted this year.  I hadn't painted for two years so this was quite and ackomplishment!  Enjoy!
Here is a closer view of just one of them:

After Christmas (actually just the other day) when I was home from seeing my dad (he is hospitalized about 5 hours away from me) I got out some paper, stamps, die cuts, ribbon, punches, and a doily and decided to see what I could come up with.  The wording is from a stampset by Papertrey Inc.  I punched out two sized of hearts and lined them with brown glitter pen.  My goal was to see if I could combine different patterns into a cohesive project.  When I was finished I thought it was missing something to pull everything together so I played with the idea of buttons but found these cute stickpins that worked perfectly.  See what you think.  Love, Elle
