    Design Design Team Member Chrissy Colon has a Frosty Snowman Ornament for you. We're loving her realistic looking snow, and check out that amazing beadwork on his hat! "Thumpty Thump Thump! Thumpty Thump Thump! Look at Frosty go!" He would make a wonderful ornament or gift tag. Get the details here on Chrissy's blog:

Inspiration By Karen Hendrix
    We adore these two pieces by Karen Hendrix! First, a stunning Angel Ornament, complete with Dresden Halo under her Santos Head. Karen's glitter and composition is spot on! Anyone would be lucky to have this gorgeousness hanging on their tree!
    Second, she made a beautiful fairy doll, beginning with our Female Chipboard Doll body and Fairy Head. We're in love with the fairy wings and lovely dress she created. Her fairy has such a wonderful, vintage look! Amazing projects Karen!

Stunning China Doll Shrine and Santos Ornament by Kim Collister + More

Happy Weekend Everyone! The last of our Escutcheon Ornament sets are 30% off since we're nearing the end of the Christmas season! And then they will be gone! If you do the math, they are cheaper than if you were to buy just the masonite pieces, so grab them while you can! You can use them for next year, or even make them less Christmasy with your embellishments. I'm also excited that we are now stocking my all time favorite glue! See below!

All Christmas Goodies are on SALE!

I use this glue on just about everything, and I'm so happy to finally carry it! It works great on any of our masonite kits and bits, and holds FAST. When I'm attaching heavy objects that require E6000, I also add a few drops of this glue. It helps the objects hold quickly as the E6000 is drying! Nothing is worse than your art pieces slipping as other glues cure. I'm never without this glue. Because of the bottle style, it has a wonderful shelf life too. I've never had a bottle dry up or clog. I've you've checked out my tutorials, this is what I'm always using! I can't say enough about this glue!

We love how Sylvia Larkin attached our Mini Santos Doll to a box lid, to create a piece of art that is both beautiful and functional. And of course her "snow" and glitter makes for a magical winter wonderland. Awesome idea and stunning creation Sylvia!
