So here we are, New Year’s Eve and half way through the twelve days of Christmas. In addition to my Day 6 ATC I have also prepared a little something for Brag Monday over at The Graphics Fairy.
This is a little party cone that I will (when it’s stopped raining) attach to the wreath on my front door to welcome visitors for the New Year. For the base, I have used a little wooden cones that I bought from Pipii. I covered it, inside and out, with my favourite French music manuscript from The Graphics Fairy I added a little trim of sparkly gold stars around the top. The bunting was made from more music manuscript and I added little ivory buttons and a generous sprinkling of gold glitter. I cannot deny that I got in a big mess doing this. It should have been very straightforward but I turned it into a bit of a three act drama!
Inside the cone are more Graphics Fairy images. I added a halo of gold stars to the fairy’s hair and, of course, gave her wings some sparkle with crystal clear glitter. She is sitting on a nest of gold tinsel and there is space to add a little gift, a lucky piece of coal or some chocolates.
The finishing touches were the January 1 (from a GF New Year’s image) and a seam binding bow.
I have a bit of a chequered history with geese. Mr Beez still cries with laughter about the time, in the early days of being married, we went for a walk in the park to feed the ducks. Except the geese decided to stick their noses, or rather their beaks, in to get a bit of the bread action. Lacking in timidity or fear, a whole gaggle moved in on me and my bread bag leaving me beating a hasty reatreat whilst throwing down whole slices and Mr Beez in stitches on the sidelines. Two years ago I got my revenge when we had whole roast goose for Christmas!
Again, all the images are from the Debbi Moore Twelve Days of Christmas CD and I’ve simply mounted them onto some paper from one of the Bo Bunny Christmas collections.
Have a great New Year’s Eve and I look forward to seeing you again in 2013.
