I need one full day at home per week to get things done. This past week being Pre-Christmas, wrapping gifts was in order. My bedroom was a disaster. It was an unholy Grinch's nightmare...and I was in heaven. I use Christmas cards from last year for gift tags, color coordinating them with the paper. The boxes that my daughters' boots came in (there are 3) were chic and didn't need wrapping, just a bow.
I had finished decorating my new artificial tree with Baby's Breath flowers as trimming. It smells good and looks like snow sprinkled throughout the green boughs. I like to call it, Baby Jesus Breath.
Our entry foyer got silver and gold attention too, with candles, a glass nativity scene, and as the inspiration piece, a card with a simple bare tree laden with snow, the branches contrasted dark against the white. My favorite technique: Chiaroscuro.
