We hope you will enjoy your time as you hop and that you feel
inspired to create after visiting the Talented Pinquettes' Blogs!
This hop will showcase projects that have been created using some of the
NEW Holiday Inspired Products from Pinque Peacock.

We are thrilled to have you joining us this month!

So for the "Tis The Season" Blog Hop I decided to go completely out of the box and used my little wood tree as our Christmas tree this season.  It's not just a project tree, it's actually our Christmas tree!!

I used lots of Pinque Peacock items, not just the new Holiday Products.  First off I used one of the Large Layered Garden Beauties to decorate the wooden star.  My photos didn't come out too well, lots of shadows, but I wanted the tree to be lit.

Now here are a couple of the new Holiday Products, a Large Fabric Covered Button (polka dot) and one of the Small Layered Garden Beauties (white and blue).  You will also notice some Felt Poppers with Fabric Covered Buttons in the center and a Corduroy Fabric Splendid Swirl.

Here is our silly wooden Christmas Tree, I just love it.  It's not traditional, but hubby wanted to put up his village this year and our living room is just too small for a tree and a village!  My hubby did make the tree for me a few year ago using scrap wood, a Pinterest idea.  I decided it would be cute all decorated up and found the star somewhere, painted it yellow and drew the stitches around it.

Again, sorry for the shadows, but it's not as pretty without the lights on!

This release is showcasing some NEW products as well as some products that have been available in the shop for a while. This is a great way to see the Pinque Peacock Products in action and to get your creative imaginations in "Full Speed Ahead" mode!

It's a Merry Christmas Card!

I am such a sucker for any holiday, but especially Christmas.  It's been a few years since I've been able to decorate, bake, do cards or anything, so I'm trying to make an extra effort this season.  I've been playing around with different papers, embellishments and Silhouette files trying to find just the right combination of colors and goodies.

Here is one of the many, many cards I've made.  I used the lovely burlap covered buttons, they're so fun to work with!  I fell in love with The Paper Studio Classic Christmas paper stack and thought it would be perfect for cards.

Here is a close-up of the burlap button and the wrinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl Jam (check her out)!

The Merry Christmas Card!

Have a great day and see you at the blog hop starting on the 13th!

Checking In!

It's been a while since I've done a post and figured today would be a good day to do one.  Been busy getting ready for the holidays, so this is a nice break.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my son Anthony and his orphan friends.  He has an orphan Thanksgiving every year for all his friends that have no where to go.  He always invites us, but this is the first year we've gone and it was a lot of fun.  He ended up with mono and I ended up doing most of the cooking, but it was still fun.  He had made all the pies and cranberry sauce the day before.

I only ended up taking 1 picture all day and it was of Bailey, Anthony's dog 'playing' with a stuffed toy.  She plays with stuffed toys like my dogs do!!

Richard hasn't been able to put up his village in quite a few years and decided that this was the year, so here are a few pictures of his village.  He put it up over a week before Thanksgiving, he was chomping at the bit to get it all done!  lol

All of his villages are from Costco and he has like 8-10 of them.  He can't put up all of them, so he picks his favorite pieces from each one and uses those.

Well that's all I've got for now, but see you on the 9th for my Pinque Peacock post and please join us for the 'Tis The Season' Blog Hop starting on the 13th!
