42 days!!!!!!

Christmas is on it's way!  I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is next week.  How bizarre.

This does mean, for you all though, that the secrecy on my build is nearing the end.  :)  Deadline for Creatin' Contest is December 17th, but my sister is coming to visit on November 30th, and since her camera is AWESOME, that is my personal deadline to be done.  Then I have 2 weeks to narrow 92,548,716,478,127 pictures down to FOUR. Yes, four.  *thud*

So, every once in a while, I panic about this and end up being totally A.D.D. and doing something totally off topic.  Today, it was setting a scene for my new jingle bell wreaths.

Eye candy for you.  Call it an early holiday gift.  :)
Chair and Love seat were bridal gifts from Brae last year.  They were made by Deb of Deb's Mini's.

The tree is lycopodium on a bottle brush tree.  Beads make up the ornaments and it has battery powered lights on it.
The Christmas cards you see on the shelf and in the window were gifts from Brae, as well.

I made the fireplace, the art, the wreath and the books. The snowman and penguin are tiny ornaments and the card is by Brae.

See the lights?

Presents are also by Brae.

Cookies and milk, along with some adult treats, too.  :) hehe, corn cob pipe. hehe

  You can find both of these wreaths in my etsy shop now!


  1. Wow, that is a beautiful living room suite from Brae! The colours are stunning. Deb is very talented! Love those tiny Christmas cards! That fireplace is spectacular and your art is amazing. It has such cheerful colours in it. I just can't get enough of looking at it. Your little wreath is perfection! I love how you have assembled and decorated your tree! It's full and tall! I love how you have put everything together. Now I feel like watching a Christmas movie. Beautiful work, Lyssa! It must be difficult to find the time to do things like this with two young children to take care of! Congratulations!

    1. Thank you! A smorgasbord of compliments there! Thank you. And it is difficult, but it's also what keeps me sane... so I MAKE time. :D

  2. Beautifully done!! I can acually hear a jingle looking at this great scene :)

    1. Thanks, Jane! I think it will make a great addition to the plethora of Christmas stuff that shows up for the season!

  6. Love that bell wreath! I suppose it is getting time to start making holiday minis, time flies when you're playing Santa and all of the elves too (as you know) :D
