Elf On The Shelf....look who's back...back again!

It's that time of year again and even though I am hard at work trying to finish up my children's book illustrations, the Elf shenanigans around the house have begun once again. It seems as though our Elf Chippy is on a mission to outdo hims-elf from last year. This morning we found Chippy hugged up to the leg lamp from the movie "A Christmas Story" (my fave!)  and my phone was packed full of Chippy & the Leg Lamp photos! To see all photos of our Elf Chippy, past and present, click HERE. Also, be sure to check out the Elf On The Shelf website and Like the Elf on the Shelf facebook page. 

Happy Holidays!!!!

Christmas Harvest Craft Show 2012

If you live in the Gallatin Tennessee area and want to do a little holiday shopping, the Annual Christmas Harvest Craft show on November 17th is the place to be. Be sure to stop by and see us at the Color Of Dawn Creations booth. I say "us" because my sweetums sister, Bekah, is always my wingman......wingwoman? at such events. But this year she has gotten involved in the creative process and whipped up a few of these:
(QUICK! Prepare yourself for the cuteness!)

Baby owls! 
There are only a few of these and I am sure they will go quickly. We have already gotten requests to make more! There will also be plenty of  hanging owl ornaments this year. Last year they sold out within the first hour of the show!

They are made almost entirely of things found in nature such as pine cones, moss, acorn tops, flowers, berries and grasses.

You will also find hand made jewelry on cedar wood slices that I wire wrapped and embellished with beads and gems.

There seemed to have been an owl theme going on and pretty much an all things nature theme like these "Tree Of Life" necklaces. 

And as always, there will be wood slice ornaments. These ornaments below on white oak are my favorite.

Also available will be Art For Haiti.

So be sure to come see us tomorrow, Saturday, November 17th at the Christmas Harvest Craft Show from 9am to 5pm at the Gallatin Civic Center.
 210 Albert Gallatin Ave
Gallatin, TN 37066.
