A Dress for December

Dress Up 2010
So, I actually made a completely paper dress for December's Dress Up.  Of course I had to add a little bling with the center flower and I glitterized the whole thing!  This month, I didn't add any fabric to the dress.  I'm pleased with the look and I love the color purple...very regal I think.  I am hoping someone volunteers to host this dress challenge into 2011!  I have had a lot of fun designing the three dresses I have made so far!

As promised, here is another Day of Christmas...I present, "5 Gold Rings" by WendyWendy, the host of this ATC swap.  Isn't is great?! 

It's a crazy busy time right now.  I hope you all are remembering to take some time for yourself while scrambling to get the presents, food, cards mailed out, etc.  Stop, breathe, and remember the reason for season.  Okay, that was a bit cheesy, but you know what I mean!

Toodles for now!

Love your purple dress. I am almost done with the crazy shopping. I just have 3 more things to get and then I am done. 2 of them are gift certificates and the other is something small. It should be done this week. i will be sending the gifts to my niece and nephew this week too.

Please email me your address so i can send you the patterns. I have a bunch. Keep what you want and donate the rest if you wish.

I think the dress came out wonderfully. I love the color, too, and and I sure wish I had that figure! LOL!

Yep, the ATC card from Wendy is great. It's fun to see the cool things y'all are creating!

Never cheesy, always good advice! Wouldn't it be fun to really wear your paper creations?

Love the December dress...and the November dress was just as wonderful!! Who would have imagined a closet full of paper dresses?! Very fun.
I just read over your post re: the November craft fair. I hope you were a success. No matter if you sell a lot, or a little: it's meeting your customers, talking to them and sharing ideas that is the best payback. I hope you were rich in all that.
Peace to you,
