Little Glitter Houses and Church
Free Printable Christmas Ornaments

Yes Santa.... Inka is still alive :)) I am so sorry it has been so long and I had some great free Christmas graphics planned. Not to mention I wanted to get my Nutcracker Theater in my little etsy store. I made the characters from redressed Tuck and Sons paper dolls and the Theater is just an amazing Christmas fantasy! However I still have some work to do on the nutcracker character but he is coming along nicely.

It seems that the past few years life has just gotten in the way of my blog this time of year. This year my daughter in law was ill. It took the doctors several weeks to figure out that her gallbladder had problems, then the surgery, then the recovery. So during all this time I had my grand babies. Taking on a 14 month old when you have MS is an ENORMOUS undertaking! Sitting at the computer while watching him was mission impossible! Although his brother who is 5 helped a lot, by time I got him in bed at night I would just collapse. Then to top that off hubby has kidney stones and was on the couch for several weeks too.... no help there...lol.

Once the boys went home, I had Christmas staring me in the face. I usually have the decorations up and the gifts bought by the day after Thanksgiving. This year we skipped Thanksgiving and I was still doing some shopping the day before my big Christmas eve party. So I thought I would share some pictures of our holiday decor and the little graphic for my ornaments. I know it is too late for this year but maybe you can save them for next year :)

   Our tree was dressed in crystal icicles, little news print houses and little music print churches. The graphic for these will be at the bottom of this post. Also I glued a heavy wood bead inside the house to weight the other side. That way the little tree did not make the ornament hang crooked.

I wrapped the gifts in newspaper and burlap ribbons

The stockings were hung by the chim... well the coat rack with care :)) I made them from vintage lace table cloth and they are reversible. You can cuff them if you like but I ended up with too much to put in them so by Christmas they were hung without the cuff.


I thought they looked nice even empty!


The topiary was dressed in gold this year.


And my daughter in law did a lovely job decorating the chandelier.


We hung glitter snowflakes from the ceiling as we always do. This picture really doesn't do them justice. They spin and twinkle with every movement and it just sets such a holiday mood.


I even changed the display in my glass cloche for the season.

Well there you have it :))

Here are the graphics for the little ornaments. I used a free pattern from the internet and made the steeple to fit. I have included my copyright because of the background papers are mine. Your more than welcome to make and sell as many as you can make but please don't sell the graphic :)
