Winter's In The Air Hop


Oh the weather outside is frightful, but these projects are so delightful!  

Welcome to the ‘Winter’s In The Air’ blog hop. 

We have all made projects to warm your heart, and potentially decorate your home, during these snowy months.

If you comment on everyone’s post you will be entered to win this from Melanie.  It includes paper, stickers, metal embellies, adhesive, mists, stencils, a journal and more.  Be sure to check back on Tuesday, Jan 22 to see who won. Following everyone's blog is not a requirement but we'd love it if you did!


Here is the Line-Up in case you get lost along the way:
Nancy **you are here**
Lucy 


Now onto my projects, Yes, projectS! First I have a fun 3D snowflake ornament. For this beauty I used a cutting file from Scraptastical Kreations. I made 9 cuts of the same snowflake on glittered paper, scored them down the middle, folded, in half, then glued them back to back and there you go. For even more sparkle I topped it off with a white glitter edge ribbon and added some crystals and pearl dangling from the bottom so it shines from every angle.

My next project is also my blog candy!! It's a pair of snowflake and crystal earrings. The snowflakes are a base metal with crystals and decorated with Swarovski crystals, white cat's eye beads, seed beads and sterling twisted tubes on a sterling lever back pierced earring. These are hand made by me (another one of my passions, making jewelry).

To be eligible to win these beautiful sparkly earrings:
1. Visit and "like" my FaceBook page.
2. Leave me a comment while you're there saying "Hi!" from the hop!

Super easy, right?! One lucky winner will be picked and announced on my FB page on Tuesday January 22.

Now it's on to the very talented Anita. I hope you have enjoyed our hop and that we've inspired you in some way today!
