A Winter's Flight...

Hello, Everyone!

Today, I thought I'd share a winter project I've whipped up to help me transition from Christmas to the completely empty house that's always left behind when we put our holiday decorations away ;-) So sad!!!

I got my inspiration from taking a peek at Saturated Canary's latest challenge over on the challenge blog. We were asked to create something for a Christmas/Winter theme.

Now, as I just mentioned, I am in full-on, clean-up mode---packing away all Christmas gear. It made me sad to think I was gonna create something "Christmas-ey", only to have to wait until next year to display it---soooooo, I went WINTER! Winter's here for a bit longer here in least a week more, I think!

I started by coloring up Krista's A Winter Ragamuffin...

And then I sent her on a fun little hot air balloon ride!

I even gave her a little bit of fur to keep her warm! Her ear muffs, collar and boots are sportin' some serious flocking ;-)

Silver glass glitter stars...

...and snowflakes cut from vintage sheet music add a bit of whimsy.

And the best part??? It GLOWS. Yep, glows. LOVE!!!

Hopefully, hanging this project over my desk will help me remember the 'frigid' 80 degree winter nights here in Arizona when our summer hits 115!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
