Show and Tell Monday!

Hello everyone! I feel like lately I am bursting with ideas and trying my best to get them put into action before they disappear. This past week I really divided my time between three things; marketing, organizing and getting ready for Christmas. It was busy but now I feel like I am ready to surge ahead and get back to the fun part- creating! Ok, here is a little sample of what I have been working on.

I made some glass ornaments with bits of ephemera, lace jewelry and various little trinkets. They are such fun. The hard part is photographing them without too much of a glare. I'm not sure if the pictures really do them justice. The first one is called My First Christmas. The next is called Nesting, it may be hard to see but there is a little bird and egg inside. They really are such fun to make.

I also have been working on some new gift tag designs for Christmas. Here are the front and back. I am going to do them in coordinating sets. Well, I will keep it short and sweet! Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day!
