Vacation is over, have to go back to work in an hour, so I thought I would update with pictures of all the fun things I created while on vacation.  Of course these are all gifts for family and coworkers, but I am so happy with how they turned out I have to share.

First my burlap canvas for my Grandmother featuring a picture of her maternal grandparents taken on christmas day in 1943.  They are Christian Carl and Agata Arens who emigrated to the US from Copenhagen Denmark in the late 1800s.

 Next is a gift for my cousin.  It is a burlap canvas panel 8x8 in a frame.  I wanted her to have a collage that reminds her of her love for her puppy.

 And last but not in any way the least, because there are 16 of them and they took all week to make 8 different designs of size 10 tags all with die cuts, paint, spray stain, and distress ink.  On the back of these wonderful tags are atc sized pocket envelopes that will hold gift cards for my hard working coworkers.

Hello again, just wanted to post a quick photo of a project I made for a friend.  I took the idea from the Festive Merriment Class with Tim Holtz at the Fall Collins Show and made a new version of the burlap canvas.  First a picture of the original made in class, which I have already posted, but "tis the season" so I'll post it again.  Second is not the best picture of the project.  I have another planned for a different gift so I will post that when it is finished.

Thanks for looking!!  Enjoy your holidays.
