Ghost of Christmas Past

I don't have anything new to post today, so I wlll give you another blast from the past. These are a few of the Christmas things I did back in my previous life. Except one: The Western Santa is fairly recent. He was an ornament I did for the Reno ANG Christmas project a few years ago.

The rest were all done in the 70s. Some of the Christmas Cards and the Reindeer were done on perforated paper, before anyone knew about it! I saw an article about it in a magazine and promptly ordered some. In those days it only came in the buff color, but I discovered it could be painted and that worked really well. I did a lot with it back in the mid 70s.

The wall hanging with the 3 little girls was an ambitious project and turned out really cute. My mother still proudly displays it every year! It is beginning to look a bit rumpled, but she still loves it.
