What a great way to start the series! So much inspiration, but I'm especially drawn to the poinsettia tags as well as Svitlana's CAS tags and your own festive tag, Tracey. Please note that the video has been set to Private.

Day one is finally here and what a gorgeous lineup to be inspired by. I’m off to my craft room in my pajamas with coffee cup in hand to start playing, The hardest thing I’ll have to do today is leave my “therapy alias craft room” and get dressed. ;). Thanks to all the designers for the beautiful inspiration and Altenew for being a sponsor.
