Taking a Break from Santa
I decided to take a break from all the red-and-green ho-ho-ho of crafting Christmas collage sheets. 

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas sheets and my ideas have not run dry yet... But it's kind of the equivalent of hearing Christmas carols from October to December 25 ~ I love those too, but sometimes you want to tear your hair out (or cut off an ear like Van Gogh) when you walk into a retail establishment and hear 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus' for the 900th time! My favorite Christmas carol is 'O Holy Night', so I'm kind of not on that page anyway.

So here is a sheet I have been working on to take a break ~ they are 1 x 3 inch rectangles, and I tried to give them a frosty blue-and-green wintry look; after all, 'tis the season' and all that! It's a little slow going though and I'm not finished. These are three of 21 rectangles. I hope to be finished soon!

Hope you are having an excellent holiday season!  Are you tired of Christmas carols yet, or are you just beginning to get into the spirit of things? 


  1. Ah I understand completely Maggie! I love the collage sheet you created, it's a wonderful step away from Christmas and the colors, accents and details you added are really lovely!

  2. Maggie, I can't wait to see these when you get finished!!


  3. i am always so intrigued and in awe by the things you can do with the computer!! those are truly lovely!!

  4. These are looking fabulous. Can not wait to see all of them. They look Christmasy to me.... Good job!
    I on the other hand have not gotten into Christmas at all.....yet! Not sure when it will kick in. I'm staying away from the stores right now so have not heard too much Christmas music. I like the religious carols too by the way.


I always love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
