"It's the most wonderful time of the year..."
When I was a child, there was a tradition that we followed every year. On the Friday after Thanksgiving, my mother, grandmother, brother and I would take the train to downtown Philadelphia to shop for Christmas. But, before shopping, there was the annual tree lighting ceremony at the John Wanamaker store. We gathered in the large indoor courtyard and waited with great anticipation for the music to start. When that amazingly fabulous pipe organ began playing, there was a hush in the crowd and then came the lights on the huge tree. For this little girl, it was the most spectacular, magical event, "wonder-full", you could say. As an adult, every year when I finish decorating the trees and turn on the lights that first evening, it takes me back to those childhood days and I feel all of the same emotions that I did so many years ago.
If I were to venture a guess, many of you have similar stories of traditions or events that imprinted themselves in your mind. And, if you have children and grandchildren, you have the opportunity to experience the wonders of the season through their eyes.
It was the wonders of the season experienced through a child's eye that inspired this brand new creatologie kit, "A Season of Wonder".
This handmade album is a different profile from what I normally use...it is tall and slender instead of a typical rectangle or square. But, don't let the shape fool you. I am amazed at how many inserts can go into this structure and these inserts are just perfect for your photos and stories. Many who have taken a class where I taught this structure have told me how much they love it and how often they make it again.
So, what are some of the things that you will love about these pages?
PATINA! There is a beautiful glow on the pages that comes from antique gold and bronze metallics...this glow adds a quiet elegance to the entire book.
SPARKLE! Adding bits of Glitter Dust, German glass glitter and bronze mica flakes (all included in your kit) will make your pages come alive and definitely create a vibe of festivity and celebration.
VINTAGE IMAGES! Some of my favorites are included...and for those of you who love vintage, they may be some of yours as well. They add an element of nostalgia to the traditions of today that you may have.
LAYERS! Each vignette is created with the thought of creating dimension...all accomplished with layers of texture, mixed media, and thoughtfully selected embellishments.
Can it get any better? Well, here are some of the interior pages so you can judge for yourself.

I hope that this holiday season, you can enjoy time with your family and friends. I hope that you experience the wonder of the season together with them.
