Winter Steampunk House - and Happy Christmas to you all!

Hi again friends!
I was quiet again for a while - and it was all because of the whole pile of "super secret" projects I have on my table right now. Some of them will go live very soon - for example "Creative Jump Start 2014" which includes my mini-class I can't wait to go live:)  Other peeks you will find on 7 Dots Studio blog - yes, new collections are coming and I'm wondering if you can guess which one is mine? :)

Meanwhile I had a chance  to work on one entertaining project which you can see below :) I kept it waiting for my Christmas post as I think it matches the Holiday atmosphere perfectly...

Here on Sizzix.uk  blog I was sharing how I turned Country Cottage die by Brenda Walton into a bit more "me" Winter Steampunk Workshop - you will find all the information about this great die if you will follow the link.




As you can see the house is a marriage of my Prima "Mechanicals" and 7 Dots Studio - 9th Wave Collection - they work just perfectly together! I added a bit of Distress Ink and Light Modeling Paste  - it really looks like snow,  isn't it?


The project wouldn't be that nice without little help of my sweet students from France - who shared with me their collection of mini cogs and gears - they were perfect match for this little house! Thank you so much!


And now it is high time for Christmas wishes!

First of all - thank you for this amazing year together. 
It was in so many ways a year of changes for me - new collections, now classes, new home and finally - online store. All this I could do only with the help and support of my family, friends and many great people who work behind the scenes and make miracles happen! Thank you - my visitors, followers, students, friends for coming back to my blog, FB page, Instagram, twitter - I feel your support and presence which gives me that much of energy that I would never expect I can have! This year was quite a ride - but hey - it was the best ride possible! Thank you for that!




For this Christmas time I'd like to wish you all everything you need: joy, peace, happiness, time for your family, friends (and maybe for yourselves?) - and wonderful atmosphere.
I hope these days will be full of laughter and unforgettable, magical moments. 
I wish you all the things you can dream of - because I KNOW miracles happen!
Have the best Christmas ever. Love you all!
