Well, Christmas and New Years are almost here.  I am taking a week off.   Spending time with my husband and our 2 crazy Shelties “the Boys”.  I have been enjoying cooking, cat sitting and relaxing.

I have some new projects coming up for the New Year.  The Penn-Jersey Mid-Winter in Harrisburg, PA in March, as well as, a  Bridal Show the end of March in Colts Neck, NJ.   Need to make a couple of items for them.  Ideas are swirling in my head.  I am anxiously awaiting a new book on making handmade journals and books which I can’t wait to get.

Had fun making some new items for Christmas gifts.  Made a great eyeglass case, couple of small holiday clutch purses and holiday wine sacks.  Below are pics of what I have been up to, in addition, to the Holiday Cards that were a BIG HIT and sold a bunch of them.

I want to thank all my clients, family and friends for their support this past year.  I look forward to many more years and a want to wish all of you …….

I love the Holidays…Thanksgiving and Christmas are a great time to experiment with new recipes, new designs, creating handmade gifts, and spending time with family and friends.

After returning from  a great time at the Penn-Jersey District Rose Society Convention and Show, I began thinking about what new fun–creative items I could make and add to C’est Lea’s line.

I love mixing up fabrics, colors and different mediums.  I have always loved vintage, shabby chic journals, scrapbooks, and handmade cards.  I love to cut out, color, paste and stitch, so, I decided to add a line of items to sell in my Etsy shop.

With the holidays approaching, I thought about how much fun it would be to make some holiday cards and envelopes.  I was inspired by the wealth of information and graphics that are offered through designers on Etsy.

These are the first of what I hope will be many items to include in my shop along with the handbags, scarves, bridal items (sashes, fascinators) and gowns.

I am offering these cards for sale in my Etsy shop……..

You can purchase them as a set, mix and match the collections or buy a single card.  Each collection has a unique Christmas theme.  Each card and envelope are handmade by me in my studio.  The graphics were digitally created by Jen Bishop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/dreamzetc.

The cards are 5.5 x 4.25.  The inside is left blank for you to insert your own message.  Made from high quality cardstock (archival safe).  Each card comes with a matching envelope (full color).  If you don’t see the card on Etsy when you visit, please let me know which one you would like.  I am working to get them all up shortly.  Enjoy….
