’Tis the Reason

It is that time of year again when the cold winds blow, and the icicles hang from the eves, and all of nature is covered with a beautiful blanket of white. Well, at least pretend those winds howling outside are from the winter blizzard and not the tornado or hurricane you are having where you live. We are actually having that weather as I type, and I wonder as the lights flicker if I’m going to still have electricity to finish this entry.

Oh, but if the lightning strikes and the candles are lit it will fill me with the happy thoughts of curling up by the fire, hot cocoa in hand, while preparing for the beauty of a winter wonderland. And that’s what I have been doing for the last few weeks.

As silly as it seems, it is the time of year to get into the Christmas spirit. Admittedly, it is a little hard to achieve this time of year when all I want to do is get out and get a little sun. But, when the joy of Christmas overflows into a magical, woodland setting, all I want to do is step into the scene and enjoy the enchanted forest.

Maybe this Woodland Christmas collection will also beckon you into its land of enchantment where birds sing and rabbits scamper and a squirrel becomes your favorite pet. It’s a little Disney, it’s a little Dutchy, and it’s a little dainty.

Once you step out of the forest you will see that it’s not all syrupy sweet. There are florals and stripes and snowflakes and trees to balance out the charming woodland creatures and their winter maiden. Have a look below and you’ll see what I mean.

This is the collection, at least the spring edition. But who knows, as the cold winds blow in another six months the maiden may happen upon her beau somewhere in that winter wonderland.

Just in case you needed another dose of sugar, I have also saturated these ornaments with the charming woodland creatures.

I wish more of your work was manufactured ;)

I wonder if I can recommend you to Cricut? These would all be AWESOME cartridges. I don't have any strings anywhere, just a fan. :)

I have only just discovered the cuteness that is 'Swell Noel' and now I find this! Please say this collection will be available in the UK? We seem have a lack of such pretty paper widely on sale.
