I wanted to give you a little bit more with each of my projects from my book Jane & Amy Create Christmas that I did with my friend Amy Mogish. Some are recipes, extra patterns, step-by-steps, suggestions on using the piece, or similar projects if you liked this one. I hope these will be a blessing to you
Sweet Treats Santa
One of the things I enjoy doing all year but especially at Christmas is baking “sweet treats” for my family and friends. I use to have large cookies baking parties where we would all mix up dough and then get together and bake for a day. I have a blog post with tips on having a successful cookie baking party. I also would like to share with you some of my favorite cookie recipes.
I love painting fashionable snowladies like Gretta. If you like this piece you might also enjoy painting “Sweet Friends”.
Sing, Sing, Sing
I love painting angels. On this one her wings are made out of scrapbook paper, click on the link below if you would like to see step-by-steps on creating the wings. Also you will find patterns for coordinating ornaments.
O Holy Night
This piece can be used a number of different ways. You can use it just as a nativity, or as an advent calendar. The advent calendar can be used the traditional way by counting down the days until Christmas, but you might want to use it as a tree of service to count the days. I did a blog post last year with suggestions, so scroll to the bottom of the post to see the suggestions. I also took elements of the design and created ornaments. The ornaments can be painted following the instructions in the book.
Playing with glitter is fun for children and adults. I loved creating the glitter house on the top of the box. Creating this size and larger houses can be a fun tradition for everyone. Last year I did a blog post with more detailed instructions on creating glitter houses. I also showed some houses as I was working on them on my business Facebook page.
