Though I've started a bunch of new LOs since last posting to my DD gallery, this 2-page Christmas spread is the only one I've managed to complete in all that time, so one of my resolutions for the new year is to get back to work on all the others, and get them across the finish line too!

As for this LO, it was initially inspired by Katie's recent series of Christmas-themed pages with kraft paper backgrounds, but instead of capturing the lovely clean, graphic feel of Katie's pages it seems to have drifted off into "grunge land" somewhere along the way— but that's okay, because, this way, it reminds me of my mom's collection of Christmasey stuff (ornaments and decorations of every description, many dating back to the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, some still stored between Christmases in the now-worn cardboard boxes which they originally came in).
