I know I should be blogging more often, I had planned to set myself lots of challenges to help keep me on track, it just doesn't work for. I know or am aware of some the road blocks that stop me completing a blog on a more regular basis but to be honest I am not really sure why I find it so difficult. Maybe I should just try and not put too much in each post then I wouldn't worry that I have got enough to say or that I don't have an image to go with what I want to tell you.
I can tell you I am more excited about Christmas this year, maybe it because Ben is come home for the first time since September. Maybe it is because for the first winter in 5 years or so I have managed to fight of the colds in a couple of days instead of things flooring me for weeks but whatever it is I am much happier this December than for a long time and that will show in the number of Christmas projects I have done this year.

Here is just one tag. This was a white 120mm by 60 mm tag. I have stamped the OHS Christmas tree off the edge,  and embossed with gold detail powder. I then masked the tree. I have repeat stamped the winter garden words in the background with Forest Green pigment ink ( Oak House studio of course). At which point I wasn't happy with the top of the tag, so I stamped and clear embossed a couple of snowflakes in that area, then applied the same Forest Green Pigment ink across using cut n dry foam.
The tree was watercoloured using my faithful aquash set.
All materials are available from me although they might not yet be listed on the website, well I can't do everything at once!
If you are looking for any Oak House Studio stamps please feel free to email me and I will do my best to help.
