First Day of Christmas

This is my First Day of Christmas project for Lisa M. Pace's Twelve Days of Christmas workshop. We are going to make twelve containers of some kind for little trinkets for the kiddos. This is a 7-UP can, probably from the 70's-it's heavy! I'm guessing it weighs more than twice what they do now. These elements all put together in one project probably look incongruous to many of you, but I really like incongruous. Thrive on it, actually. I like old and I like luxurious. I like rustic and I like girlie. No stamping here, just a quirky little project that makes me smile!

I think you can still register for this workshop. I am really loving it. I has helped me focus and get some things done. I'm a big dreamer, then I start to make elaborate and nearly impossible to complete plans. Lisa has it all lined out for me, with little snippets and ideas for every day. I think that this will probably be the most creative Christmas of my life. The projects are all of the type that you can make them truly your own, believe me, my First Day is not much like Lisa's First Day! Lisa has done all the work and all the organizing, which are my weak points. All I have to do is play with my stuff! YIPPEE!! I'll have The Second Day of Christmas for you tomorrow!!
