on the sixth day of Christmas

Kelly Snelling wrapped for me:

this magical parcel! Kelly used joss paper with a image of a egg from a vintage cigarette card, with twine in hand she bundled it all up in a mischievous way (that screams KELLY!)

Now I had to go out into my newly renovated zen garden to take these photos because of the amazing reflective quality of Kelly's painted multi layered ornament! this girl has one amazing way with color and layers!
And here is the back that she collage and painted!
Kelly has just opened up a etsy shop where she is selling her stunning conceptually soulful paintings along with her artfully hand made jewelry you must see her art with your own eyes!
Kelly has posted a detailed steep by steep tutorial on how she created her ornament!

It sings because it has a song.

I have been working on my studio the last few days tossing out and reorganizing, here is a peek of my jars and clear boxes filled with baubles of inspiration and once I am done I will give you a full tour of my space.

Organizing is what you do before you do something,
so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.
