A Winter Project…



Hello Friends…Are you in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Holidays?

I personally have never in my life been this far behind, but I think I am going to give myself a little break, cause I did

have a major distraction on my hands this week with the burglary!  So I guess I can’t beat myself up to bad about it.

My son turns 21 on the 22nd of Dec. and needless to say I am not ready for that either…emotional or physically…LOL!

Where did the time go?  I can’t believe it!

My son is my ultimate joy and will be home tomorrow night from college!  Woohoo! Can’t wait!

Anyhoo, your not here to listen to me whine or talk about my son now are you?

Today’s post is also something I created a few weeks back for the December issue of Die Cut Crazy magazine.

I am not going to show you each step by step photos like I did in the magazine,

you would have to buy it to see those…wink wink, however, I will show you a few of them!

Here is a link to the on-line magazine if your interested.  This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad.

I had the best time making this Mixed Media Door Hanger.  Once I get my nerve up to start MM I really do enjoy it!

It all started with a piece of cardboard, card stock, tissue paper, Modge Podge, and acrylic paints.


Then I took some of my stencils that I have had FOREVER and had some fun with them.


Here is the finished product!

I am entering this project over at the Mixed Media Color Challenge.

Happy Holidays MCC Badge

Their challenge is to use whatever colors inspire you to create a holiday mixed media project.

 It’s not to late…you have till Dec. 17th before the challenge ends.

Okay that is all for me today…remember that in the middle of this rush of the

Holiday Season take sometime for yourself and be creative!

 It’s good for the soul!

  1. Nancy, first of all I love reading about your love for your son. Sons are amazing, I have one of those to, older than yours, Aaron will be 41 Dec. 15th, where did those years go. My daughter will be 43! That white hair you see in my picture, is absolutely natural! Any way I got distracted. Your door hanger is beautiful, I love the colors and all the pretty embellishments you added. It’s glorious!

  2. Wow, a burglary on top of the holiday craziness. That’s a lot to handle. At least with your son coming home it will take you mind off it for little 🙂 But this is beautiful!!! I love the colors and design. The embossing on the ornaments is really nice. Good luck in the Mixed Media Color Challenge. Looks like you have a winner here!!! ~Sophia

  7. That’s beautiful! I have only made a “Shhhh The Baby Is Sleeping” Door Hanger, but I LOVE the idea of a Holiday one and yours is gorgeous, loving all the blues and frosty feeling! My Holiday Update: Naked House, but all cards and packages have been mailed, still some shopping to be done, but I’m not worried……YET!!! And when I do get worried, I’m just breaking out the wine, and what do the kids say? ‘Making It Rain’……cash for all. lol (just kidding on that part!)
