[insert heavy sigh here]

I have been in such a funk lately... is it the weather? Is it my job? WTH? I'm not feeling very creative and I just want to stay in bed...


Here are a couple of wooden ornaments I FINALLY finished... there's nothing to them, but it took forever, I swear!

The mittens hold a photo, and the stocking could be personalized with a name or year.

Stamps: Christmas Fun (holly on the mittens)
Paper: Reece SWIC and Merry Wishes SWIC (retired)
Ink: Burnt Umber Palette, Java ink spray
Other: Yes! glue, sanding block, Copic markers (holly), misc. beaded trim & ribbon, TAC flower punch, hydra sponge

What do you think?
Holy cow! I just noticed I have over 10,000 hits!! Keep your eye out for a blog candy post sometime soon!!

a funk is when you create nothing at all. you're an awesome and inspiring creator. I love both of these ideas. I can't even pick a favorite.

I can relate to funk.I think mine is the economy- at least that is what I am blaming.
The mittens are darling!! And that stocking- I know someone that would totally flip over that.
