Christmas is my very favorite time of year. I am already counting the days until I hang the Christmas lights outside, set up the tree, hang the Advent calendar and make dozens and dozens of cookies for family and friends. I’ve started a Christmas journal, a new tradition, to celebrate every day of the season. Dawn Sokol at d’blogala has just started her on-line class entitled 12.31 Art Journal Project. Take a look – it’s not too late to sign up and start your own tradition.
I’ve also been following Roben-Marie Smith and her fabulous Mail Art creations. I am so inspired by her use of scraps and bright colors. Take a few minutes and watch her videos – you too will be searching for manila folders and brightly colored paper scraps. Wouldn’t it be fabulous to receive a Christmas card or ATC in one of these envelopes! Enjoy.
Keep it simple.
