We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Christmas? It's not so bad!

Spent a very pleasing and relaxing few hours at a Crafts U Love workshop yesterday, decorating a Tim Holtz Configurations Book - on a vintage Christmas theme!  I was persuaded to do it by a friend, and even though I'm not into Christmas, I really enjoyed it!

We used a little Distress paint, Distress inks, some vintage papers, and dies, with a little stamping and embossing.

The front cover has the Sizzix Bigz poinsetta die, which I did succumb to and bought one, as it doesn't have to be a poinsetta!

Inside, there is a little house, which we made three dimensional, a bottle with a Christmas scroll and glitter snow, and a couple of boxes left empty for personal items.  One box has been reversed and stamped and embossed (which I think would make an ideal place to hide a small gift).

This would make a perfect extra special Christmas card.
