I held my annual Christmas Open house this weekend for my family and friends. We sold most of my 2010 Christmas pieces from Blossom Bucket, along with my Christmas mugs from Evergreen Enterprises, stationary from Legacy and flags from Toland Home and Garden. I turn the front area of our home into a Christmas store for the weekend.

Joy, Believe and Love
I am so thrilled with the nativity set. It's beautiful!!
I made this lodge Santa years ago. He's displayed on top of
our large wood cabinet.
I made this Snow Sleigh years ago too. He sits on our kitchen table.
Our family room is small so we use a tall slim Christmas tree. I used an antique sleigh under the tree to gain more height.
My hubby and I made 2 large birch arrangements for outside. One sits at the front door and the other is on our back porch. They look beautiful at night with the white lights wrapped amongst the branches. We hung large pinecones with lodge ribbon above the arrangements.
Our front porch was draped with real pine, large pinecones and lodge ribbon.
My Polar Peace mat from Evergreen Enterprises greets my guests.
Thank you to all my friends and family for a wonderful day!
Well I have been busting my butt this week preparing for my Annual Christmas Open House. I'm almost ready, just some last minute tidying to do tomorrow. The entire front room of my home is filled with hundreds of pieces from my 2010 product lines. Many from my Resin figural lines with Blossom Bucket. I can't wait to show all my family and friends!
I have returned from our Artist Gathering organized by my wonderfully talented BFFDan DiPaolo! We met over the weekend in Milwaukee, WI. It was a weekend full of sharing and laughter! Our incredibly talented group met with Legacy Publishing and Sunset Vista Designs.
Both graciously presented their company info and took the time to meet with each of us individually. From there we all shared our portfolios, family pictures, licensing stories and online trials and tribulations! LOL
It was a weekend I will cherish forever!
