Topiary Trees

I went to another class at my local craft store on Wednesday and this is was our off the page project. A Christmas topiary table decoration.

It was so much fun that I decided I needed to have one on display all year around, so today I made another, but this time in my favourite colours.

My beautiful daughter Lauren joined in and made her own for her bedroom. I love it when we sit and craft together. She's been unwell lately and this really put a smile on her face. I'm sure you'll agree with me, she did a simply amazing job she did with hers.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs xo Jackie
