Holiday Lights to Warm our Hearts and Hearths

It's holiday time again! That means lots of warm and cozy nights with the beautiful glow of candles and fires to light up our hearts and our hearth. This December, Gingersnap Creations is celebrating Holiday Lights and we will be focusing on candles, votive holders and all things wax.

This month, we will be welcoming Pennywise Arts as our December sponsor. Pennywise Arts supplies fabulous micro beads in a wide range of colors in both translucent and opaque styles. They also feature a variety of adhesive solutions for the avid micro beader. Look for samples of Pennywise projects on their blog and fantastic tutorials on their website.

Joining in on our holiday fun this month, the Pennywise Arts Design Team has put together some great projects for you to enjoy!

Our December Muse is Leonie Pujol, fabulous papercraft and mixed media artist and author. With a wonderfully diverse portfolio, Leonie is sure to charm you with her amazing art. We'll be featuring her in a Muse Showcase on Saturday, but if you want to see her art now you can visit her blog, Leonie Pujol: Life's About Sharing.

We are also pleased to welcome our Visiting Artists for December who will be sharing their phenomenal talents and art with us in our challenges! We are delighted to welcome Cath Wilson and to have both Yvonne (MeggyMay) and Louise LePierres as returning Visiting Artists. We can't wait to see what they create this month!
