This holiday season, experiment with color, pattern, exaggerated sizes, and non-traditional icons! Red and green absolutely have a place in Christmas history, but don’t feel like you must be tied to it year after year. If your heart longs for a pink, glitter hammerhead shark to adorn your tree, by all means bring it to life! Stencils make it easy to produce your own patterns, like the bright tree forest that is displayed inside of an embroidery hoop. Nostalgia has also made its way back into our hearts. Mason jars can be filled with miniature bottlebrush trees and teeny deer that can be found on the Holiday aisle, right next to the adorable gumball machine that is smaller than an actual gumball… I need to borrow some tiny quarters.
Gift giving is no doubt the most gratifying part of the season. Why not add something special to a one of a kind package? Don’t be afraid to draw on your gift bags or use fun scrapbook paper to wrap small boxes.
Bottom line: be yourself this Christmas and continue to enjoy the sights, colors, and animals that make you happy.
