Okay...break's over

How was your holiday? I hope it was wonderful. Ours was nice, and it went by so quickly.  While I am looking forward to seeing my friends at work and hearing about their families, I am wishing I could have just one more day...

I love when it is time to decorate for Christmas.  This year, I find myself editing a bit.  It doesn't feel like a case of the ba hum bugs (technical term), but a need to simplify what I use.  That and I know I will create some new treasures as the season ramps up.  Being that Monday is almost here, I checked out The Graphics Fairy to see her Christmas graphics. 



Square clear glass ornament. Check.  Mod Podge. Check.  Green gingham tissue paper punched into squares. Check.  Fourth cup of coffee. Check.  Jitters from coffee. Check.



After I Mod Podged the tissue squares onto the ornament, I added the image.  For embellishment, I punched out some holly leaves, and used Stickles along the edges.  I love its vintage, simple look plus the square shape. It makes it a little unusual, yes?



'Tis the season to link up at these great places!
