Wintery Lil Poms

Let it snow, Let it Snow, Let it snow

I have created some precious Lil Poms that are perfect for the Wintery Season ahead. When creating these signature pieces I am filled with so much Joy. With my winter line of "Lil Poms" As I created these "Lil Poms" I used Christmas songs and quotes as a source of inspiration. I hope you enjoy my new creations, if you just can't live without one of these Whimsical Lil Poms they are available on Etsy.

Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?

Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a-wand'ring
So fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Twinkle Toes

Every Time a Bell Rings an Angel Gets its Wings

May Your Hearts be filled with Joy and Laughter During this Wintery Season

Wreaths of Royalty


I have been a busy bee creating for my upcoming Christmas show, so I have been away from the blog world. I shared this with some of my fans last year but thought you all may enjoy this short DIY also.

Did you know that a wreath goes back to ancient times and was a symbol of royalty? A wreath was called a diadem, a Greek word meaning “a thing bound around.” As other countries noticed the wreaths eventually “crowns” were created. The word crown derives from the Latin word corona, which means garland or wreath. Today, wreaths are used as holiday adornments or ornaments as attractive welcoming decorations for our front doors, even as center pieces. Feel as Royalty as you make your wreath and let it symbolize a crown as you display it in remembrance of the King who was born.

You will need: a sprig of berries, glittered leaves, ribbon or tulling, vintage pages, and a hot glue gun

Step 1: Remove each bud from the main stem



Step 2: Arrange the buds in a circle with the end under the top of the alternating piece


Step 3: Use hot glue to attach the end of one bud to the top of the other (Continue until all buds are attached)



Step 4: Add glittered leaves and tulling





Step 5: Tear a small banner of paper from an old book and add words that express yourself



Step 6: Add tulling or threading and string the wreath


Step 7: Enjoy your creation!
