Merry Christmas!

We want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year! My kids were in the spirit of the season today and decided to paint some Christmas scenes.

I just love it when they paint.

The Christmas Tree Farm

This was my first trip to a real live Christmas tree farm. Love, love, loved it! Look at that pond just trying to ice up but not quite there yet. We took a hay ride through the trees and drooled over which one we would love to take home. One little girl sitting next to me decided she was going to take all of them. I don't blame her. But get this...there were 45,000 (yes...thousand) Christmas trees at this farm!

Now, you have to close your eyes and imagine all of these trees are covered with soft, white, fluffy snow. Their branches are heavy and the air is crisp with a blue crystal sky. that's a beautiful Winter wonderland scene.

Tesoro Fino Great Giveaway

This is an awesome giveaway that my friend at Tesoro Fino is currently having! You have to check it out at and enter. She's great at taking beautiful objects and changing them into something even more beautiful. I know I would love to hang these in my kitchen to give it that extra touch it needs. Or at least I didn't realize my kitchen needed that extra touch until I saw these dazzling silver spoons!

Yes, this is my husband...talking to a camel.

He does that sometimes....

I can't believe I'm posting this picture but it was just too funny that I couldn't resist. My kids got out all of the ornaments, put them on the tree and it was wonderful. I stand and gaze at the Christmas and gold beaded garland, white twinkly lights, ornaments of bygone Christmases dangling from the branches, golden ribbon draped from the tip top and then I turn around and see this...the aftermath of a tornado. I mean really, what else could it be from?

But seriously, I hope my mom doesn't see this photo....

New! Downloadable Gift Tags

A couple weeks before Christmas 2008 I wrapped a few gifts and rummaged through my stash of ribbons and packaging, looking for my gift tags. It's one of those things you run out of one year and you're convinced you'll remember to buy more before the next Christmas comes, but at some point throughout that 365 days it just escapes you.

I had an image in my head of a pear dangling from a limb and decided right then to paint it and print out my own gift tags. This year I've made that same tag and a few others available to you as a downloadable PDF file through my website, Wallflowers. You can click here to view them all or each one separately on the pictures above. These images are Michelle Meyer original designs and only available through my website. They look nice printed on card stock with either a matte or a glossy finish. They can even be dressed up by punching a hole and adding a ribbon.
