MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!!! May you receive the gifts of peace, love, and joy…and perhaps some Stampin' Up! products too to keep you busy in the new year.
You've heard me say in earlier posts how much I love Poinsettias…not sure if it that Christmas is my favorite time of year with decorating the house being my favorite holiday activity or that my birthday in December. And, I love baskets too for decorating, entertaining, and organizing. This special gift is from Vicki Center who joined my Stampin' Up! family just a few months ago. She handmade the basket by weaving strips of Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake card stock sponged along the edges and Seem Binding Ribbon Trim for the handles. Truly a work of art that WOWS everyone…once they catch on that it is made of paper. She gifted me the basket with the perfect size Poinsettia. How nice it looks by our family Nativity. (Vicki also made another dozen of these for our November team meeting swap. She put a flower & candy bouquet in each.) Thank you, Vicki, for such a beautiful handmade gift from the heart.
Vicki Center, the card stock basket weaver, was a huge it at my Holiday Open House and Merry Stampers Team Christmas Dinner as many people were meeting her for the first time. Prior, she was simply known as the mysterious basket lady. I'm going to have to get Vicki to teach me how to make this.
