Custom Christmas Papercut


So, a little while ago, a woman contacted me on Etsy and asked if I did custom papercuts. I told her I did and she asked if I would do a profile of her and her family for her Christmas card. She send me pictures of herself, her husband and son and their dog and parrot. I thought it would be fun to have a parrot in a pear tree (hopefully people catch on that that's what it is when they see it). Kim liked the idea and we went forward with it. We both loved the result! I'm also getting one of Kim's Sweet Little Yeti Christmas Ornaments. It's to die for, you guys should check out her site!

What a sweet idea. I've been playing with the idea of doing my own snip for our Christmas cards. Hopefully I will get beyond just the thinking about it.

Apryl, oh good. But you're the sophisticated sort. I wouldn't put it past you.

Snippety, you should! It would be super cute!

Lorna, thank you so much! I wish I lived in Scotland.

Sharon, dang it! I should have publicized more, you could have visited with me at the Michael's opening. That would have been fun.

Cindy,
You are very talented! I always enjoy your pieces! There is a simple elegance (and a touch of magic!) in all the things you do. Did the family send you profile photos?
