The short answer is: it doesn’t!! But I suppose it is more complicated than that. let me explain.
This week at the Monday challenge blog the theme is “mystery” and so I thought I’d share a little insight into my holiday prep and the ‘mystery’ of how I get so much done around here!
- I start EARLY
- I take advantage of small bits of time
- I enlist my girls as helpers
- I do something (however small) each day
- I pick my projects – nobody can do everything!
With this in mind – here’s a peek into my studio today! I created a fun little tag and wrapped up a gift.
I stamped all over a tag with Kelly Purkey’s new Elf movie inspired sets. Then I used embossing paste + a snowflake stencil to add some texture.
Lift off the stencil, and let it dry!
Then (it was only partially dry when I sprayed mine) spray with dylusions and perfect pearls mist.
It only took a minute (plus a while to dry) and I was ready to get a package together!
A little tinsel, some flower & holly action, and BAM! one gift ready to go.
I just love how this one turned out – and yeah I misted the whole thing with a bit more of that pearly mist.
That’s the secret – that there is, in fact, no secret I just wrap up gifts as I buy them.
