First Holiday Project For Me On Bacteria Day

For me personally I can feel the buzz of the holiday season! I happily took a few days off this week and yesterday Perry High School was closed due to "bacteria" being found in the library. So suprisingly the boys had a day off with me. Of course here in Chandler/Gilbert area we are not accustomed to what to do on our version of a "Snow Day" so we improvised.

Of course we all slept in (that is a given with teenage boys) then mom made pecan pancakes, bacon, eggs and hashbrowns. I snuck outside and enjoyed my latest magazines and my first cup of hot chocolate for the season. Perfect morning!

Then I was able to play in my craft room in the afternoon. Put together one of the latest Grapevine Design Christmas items. A tree separated in four pieces. On the one I put together I did pictures of Andreas' first Christmas last year featured on the beautiful new Wonder collection from Authentique.

Added a little zip dry to glue down the paper. Then chalked the edges with my favorite Chestnut Roan. Follwed with matting my photos on Bazzil Kisses cardstock.

Tied all the pieces together with some Olive Swirl Organdy ribbon and my first Christmas project is already up! I love easy peasy items.

Grapevine Design Christmas items such as this tree, SANTA book, MERRY book, PEACE book and Jolly book will all be 50% off on Black Friday. Great ideas for presents!

Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving,


  1. Adriana - great to see you enjoy. I finished my 1st GrapeVine Design Christmas book yesterday; it came together beautifully and is going to be a special gift for someone dear.

  2. What a cozy day! LOL at the term "Bacteria Day" - so icky! - but what fun!

    And LOVE your Christmas Tree project! It is absolutely adorable! :o)
