I know that the holidays are technically over, however, I simply had to share this GORGEOUS wreath made of countless multi-colored felt balls. Featured on 'Pickles' (a super-awesome Norwegian craft blog I have recently discovered), I love the styling of the wreath next to the moose head and mini garland (we all know how much I love garlands). I can just picture it on a brightly painted front door of a lovely old home. Who says wreaths are confined to the month of December?

Today I came across this lovely set of paper at Kate's Paperie. It comes in small gift enclosure sizes and a standard A4 size. I love the fact that it offers you a rainbow of colors to suit your mood or recipient. And wouldn't they look pretty on your desk?
Pick up your own set of these beauties for $30 here.
I am headed home today to begin Christmas celebrations with my family, but I thought I would leave you with something fun to look at over the next week. It reminds me of this video, which I posted about this time last year and makes me smile just as much. Enjoy!
This installation was done by James Theophane Jr who explains:
Work asked me to do something for their Christmas card. I work for an Interactive Agency.
To cut a long story short, after a company-wide upgrade the agency had a lot of old mobiles gathering dust. We took these, built and hoisted a gigantic interactive chandelier/mobile that plays Christmas jingles in our reception.
Mobile Mobile has been made as a semi-permanent hanging (exhibition) space. In January the mobiles will be replaced with another hanging media, then updated month in, month out.
