Pastel Christmas Decorations

Soft Pastel Colors for Christmas




I love the Traditional Colors for Christmas decorating
but I also love the soft pastels..
So that being said I have been creating things this
year both ways...


Todays post I'm sharing a little bit of my Pastel goodies!


You see I've got my PINK tree happening in my Studio
"Girl Power"

Secret to my Handcrafted Snow Globes

Oh yes I have a little secret...
I've been working on some mini Snow Globes...

I happen to have found a bag of glass salt shakers
 at my local Thrift a few months back.

And I've got plenty of mini Bottlebrush Trees 
So then all thats left is some "SNOW"


It's all about the Snow!
What's a snow globe without snow!


Instead of using up all my MIca to fill
my Globes I used Epsom Salt
and it works and looks wonderful!
Believe me it sparkles just like snow!

And another good thing is I can purchase
a bag of salt at my local 99cents store!


So once I get a few more made and in my Etsy Shop
I plan on making more for gifts.

Always looking for a unique and inexpensive
handcrafted idea for Christmas Gifts
and this is gonna work for me!

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving~

Handmade Christmas Treasures

I've been busy like I'm sure most of you 
that work Craft Shows,
have either an Etsy Shop or retail space
Creating Christmas Treasures~


I completed these three Ornaments
using Jello/ tin molds
now I just want to add a bit of
Mica to add a little more
"Christmas Magic"




I have also started selling my 
Custom colored bottle brush trees in my Etsy Shop
Signature PINK


And Vintage white with
actual Vintage large mercury  glass
beads for ornaments~


I just know time is going to fly by
once Thanksgiving arrives
so I better stay on track and
keep busy ...... And it's just about time
to start decorating around here!
