Christmas snuck up on me again. It always does! Back in November I made a vow to get all my Christmas stuff done (mainly shopping) by December first. Yeah right, Falconer. But now these dudes are hanging out on our clashing, slightly crooked Christmas tree and the holiday magic is happening. Man, did Dennis ever hit a home run when he got these guys last year!

I recently did a few design elements for Yule Britannia. Elizabeth makes delicious treats: figgy pudding, sticky caramel sauce, ginger cookies, spiced sweet nuts, etc! She delivered some treats to me at City of Craft this year (sweetheart) and it was all incredible. Available at The Mercantile on Roncesvalles.

Scenes From The Basement: 1. New rolls of leather to cut and print - dark grey, smokey grey, black, mint, plum, and cream! 2. Making peachy messes. 3. Compiling test sheets full of various patterns and colours (for future Falconwright wrapping?). I love the way these test sheets are layering up, all chaotic but still kinda pretty. Maybe the kind of pretty that only a mother could love, but still.

And speaking of Falconwright, you could win all 3 of these items by leaving a comment on this blog post by Friday December the 23rd at midnight. A winner will be drawn on Saturday the 24th!

Those ornaments make me really happy- especially the snowman. Nice moves Dennis :)

hints at a decorated christmas tree and no photo? why sandi, why?


Danielle: It's impossible not to smile when you look at these guys!

Shayna: You'll see it in REAL LIFE soon. And it doesn't really photograph well. It's kind of got a Charlie Brown-esque slant to it, but it sure is charming!

I love the scenes from the basement - printing mess and test sheets rule...I had a test sheet canvas bag with all my bag designs ever on both sides and someone forced me to sell it to her due to its crazy layered loveliness - so it's not just a mother love.

happy christmas!


Charlotte: Nice! Ok, I take it back - test sheets look cool PERIOD, ha.
