a pattern for december

Here for you now is my pattern I've made for December, I was inspired by the grey afternoons just outside my window, the few brown and crimson leaves still clinging to the bare trees, and the hope in my heart for snow to come.

If you wish, you can download a larger size of it here:

You can print it out, and make lots of nice things. Perhaps many pretty little paper stars for your tree, or to make some paper house lanterns to sit along your window sill. Or to print, fold, and create a pretty paper wreath with which to welcome good friends to your home. Or perhaps print them onto sticker paper or card stock and make labels and tags for your christmas gifts.

Or, collect them up, one from each month and save them for the perfect project - I try to download another pattern every month.

And, thank you once again for visiting me here in this place!

Thanks for another beautiful pattern. I know what I am going to do with it. I will make a pop-up snowflake card. You can see the prototype my daughter and I made if you check out my most recent blog post.

Thank you again for the beautiful pattern. I love the colors of this Dec pattern. I have been saving my November page, but this Dec page will probably end up as snowflakes on my tree. Thank you!!

I love your blog and the patterns to print out! Thank-you! I read about you in Better Homes and Gardens. My sister lives in New Zealand and I live in Franklin, Tn. We are each going to print out the monthly designs and come up with the same way for both of us to use them!
