tiny mixed media ornaments--liquid paper mache and sparkly paints!

Short and sweet today, but wanted to share some tiny little Christmas ornaments:
More pics and details HERE  
Used Li-Qua-Che liquid paper mache in silicone candy molds for the frames,
and of course my favorite metallic and glittery paints for shine!
These are really very small.

Happy Thursday, and a very Merry Christmas to you!

it's the most wonderful time of the year . . .

List of things for me never to do again in December:
Get new carpet.
Paint the sewing room.
Get an antique booth at the local antique mall with MIL and DIL.

Don't get me wrong, all of these things are good things, just not when one is trying to Christmas . . .

In lieu of something new, here are some of my favorite Christmas goodies from the past:

This needle felted bird's nest:
on our tree

 An ATC sized triptych:

You may remember these from last year--Christmas ornaments, all in non-traditional colors:
these were all given to friends
 And back when I still had time to do swaps, oh I love love loved this box of goodies from Lynn!
still love it, and all on our tree!!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to finish moving stuff back into that newly carpeted and painted sewing room!

Happy Wednesday, and if I don't "see" you again beforehand, a very Merry Christmas to you!

A Christmas Alphabetica

Are you Christmas crafting?  I've been working on a Christmas ABC book.
You can see more of it in my share today at the Altered Pages Artsociates blog, along with how I made that shiny little embellishment, but how about one more pic for good measure?
 Thank you for stopping by today, and Happy Christmas Crafting to you!
