Gift Wrap – It’s all in the Presentation

I do love my Chalkboard Art (and a good presentation)! 

There are no boundries….my wrapping is even created with Chalkboard paper.

This time I am pairing it with homespun and hand stamped tissue paper with a custom stamp design, adding a warm wool yarn, baker’s twine and a keepsake chalkboard tag .

It all relates to each other… you see?



…and a sneak peek at my new Rubber Stamp line coming soon…..(when I finalize the details I will keep you all in the know).

A Tree Wrap


I wanted to create a tree ‘wrap’ for under our tree.  I do have a beautifully made tree ‘skirt’ made by my mother’s hands….but wanted something a little more country vintage and in my mind I wanted to ‘wrap’ the tree, not skirt it.

I purchased a vintage army blanket from WW2 from Etsy  for this purpose and then visited Kay of my favorite shop, Homespun Woolens in Hereford PA for the perfect hand-dyed wool to cooridinate. 

When describing my idea to Jane Allen and Kay of Homespun Woolens….they both encouraged me to create a tree skirt, giving me directions and a line drawing….but my vision was for a ‘tree wrap’, not a ‘tree skirt’…sometimes it is hard to describe what your creative mind has come up with. 

So I created on my own. With no sewing skills.  Amy Style.


ta-da… is perfect.  Just as I envisioned.

Now….to come up with a plan for my tree skirt from my Mom.
