Hi everyone. Still working on my Christmas tags ... and having lots of fun. Using tags that came with my gift boxes I bought at the dollar store ... cutting them up to use as the designer paper for the background of my hand-made tags so the papers match the gift boxes. I've added some jingle bells, stars, holly leaves, etc. to dress them up. The reindeer is made from dies: head (2 different-sized ovals), ears (leaves), antlers (olive branches) ... with a couple of googley eyes, and red glitter ball for nose. Hope you like.
We had our first snowfall of the year yesterday ... it surprised us all, even the weatherman :) So the city wasn't prepared and didn't have sanding and salting trucks out on the road. This led to some very treacherous road conditions yesterday, with many vehicle accidents and blocked roads and bridges. I stayed home!! :) I'm so lucky to have the option.
Last night we had more snow ... and now our place looks like a winter wonderland. The rain is coming ... and the snow is already starting to melt and look heavy. Hopefully everything will be cleared away for tomorrow so I can meet some friends from lunch (finger's crossed!!). For now, I'm enjoying looking outside while I'm warm and cozy inside :) Here's a couple of pictures of my backyard ... I do love the way the snow sits on the trees. Everything looks so clean and fresh ... and it's sooo quiet.
