Paper Chain Doll - New Design
I know it's only October, but many shops have had Christmas decorations out since the beginning of September. I think the cashing in on Christmas just gets a bit much sometimes. Where's the magic peoples? Seeing all the decorations though gets me thinking about the different traditions that I have going in my family. In December we start our annual cutting out of the snowflakes which we paste on our windows to create great shadows around the room. Bit sad that we don't get snow down here at Christmas, but I'm just in love with snowflakes. As I sit in the sweltering heat cutting each intricate design after another, I can't help but think about how truly amazing snowflakes are. There are some great books about snowflakes out there - I know I've salivated over many over at amazon. If you're ever stuck for inspiration go look at some snowflake pictures and see some true magic. And because I'm holding out on cutting the snowflakes, I've turned my attention to paper chain dolls instead. What do you think? I was thinking this design would look fab on the front of some little girly handbags.
