Letters to Santa

Just a quick little blurb today and an apology -- I know I said I would upload more photos of Luxembourg, but I'm too tired so that will have to wait until tomorrow.

In the meantime, check out this little prototype mailbox I worked on today. Isn't it cute? The idea for the blanket of sparkly "snow" came from another demonstrator in the Stampers in Stitches -- Sarah Moore. And it really is a fabulous idea. I just loved it when I first saw it and I knew I would have to re-create it in time for this year's craft show season.

On this mailbox I used the flowers from Season of Joy for the front with a little extra bling in the centers in the form of our round fire rhinestone brads. I used a stamp from the Perfect Presentation Level II hostess set for the sentiment on the mailbox flag. All in all this was a very simple project. All I have to do is stuff it with some candy and set a price. I'm really hoping that this will be popular craft show item.
