Holly Jolly Christmas Greetings!
It has been a whirlwind of creations going on in my shop these last few months. I wanted to share my excitement with you about a project I was involved in – it is truly awesome! A company named Miami Christmas Lights ordered fifty (50) 1 square foot floral like ornaments that could only have 2 colors for each ornament. So I gladly rose to the challenge and got started on Oct. 6th and happily finished them in time to ship and have to them by Oct. 30th. If I had been able to lay them down side by side in a square that would have been 50 sq. ft. –so while they were on the tables being sealed I took some photos.
That is a lot of paper! Thanks to Little Circles for their beautiful brightly colored paper, cutting them in 1/2″ strips and getting my order to me so quickly.
Now for the very exciting part…..
It was as exciting as waiting for Christmas – I could hardly wait until they unveiled their final display – well worth the wait! It is absolutely awesome! They did such a splendid job of showcasing “quilling” and I am so thankful that I got to be part of that. They were kind enough to send me photos so I will gladly share them with you. Drum roll please…….
It is a 9 foot “Quilling Christmas Tree” – to include lights inside shining outward. It is located at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, 5550 NW 40th St., Coconut Creek, FL 33073. If you are in the area during Christmas please drop by and say hi to the quilling tree. Take a photo of the tree, send to me and I will gladly give you a 20% discount toward your next purchase.
I made Christmas cards using the photos they provided and added the milky way as a background and added “Merry Christmas” – I am happy with the way they turned out. Feel free to make a purchase of the card packets – they are only $4.99 for packs of 5 (envelope included); the inside has been left blank so you can write a personal note. See photo below.
Well, as they say “that’s a wrap!”
I wish everyone a very “nice” Christmas!
