I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas!


 Christmas at All That Jazz took a decidedly white turn this year!  I spent many an hour working on projects and pulling together my look  for this year. I went all out and was very happy with the finished look. It took my Mom and I almost 6 hours to unpack the 12 plus boxes of Christmas paraphernalia I brought, not to mention packing up things I didn't have room for.  It's a good thing I went in a couple days earlier to rearrange the furniture or that would have taken another hour.


Tah dah! 
The photos don't truly capture the sparkle but feel free to peek around anyway!

Hope you enjoyed the tour and that you all had had a wonderful Thanksgiving!.
Now it's time to get our Christmas on, ready...set...go!

~~Getting in the Christmas Groove~~

I've been working like a fiend getting things ready for the holidays, namely Christmas,
at All That Jazz. This is the time of year when I make the most stuff, rather than painting furniture since the weather turns wet and cold and I don't have an indoor place to paint.

I have been making ornament after ornament, handmade paper cones, signs, bleaching little trees,  flocking bigger trees, washing up merchandise, pricing and boxing things up. I think I'm 2/3 of the way through everything on my list. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think I may actually have things finished  well in advance of when I plan to take it in. Usually I'm working up until the same day or the day before. I think the problem may be how to squeeze it all into my space!

By the way~Anyone else that has a space (or not) irritated that we need to work on things before Halloween to have things in the shop before Thanksgiving? I've been listening to Christmas music already to get in the mood!
