How To Take Down The Christmas Decorations

I’ve pondered over this, I normally take down the Christmas Decorations on January 1st, I expect that will be the same this year, however I’m going to make it an easier job this year.

It’s not just the taking down but it is the thankless task of packing them away and getting them back into the loft until the following year.

So here is how I’m going to do it this year, I’ve enrolled the help of Fairy 3 by Mo’s Digital Pencil I am also going to give you the chance of also having her to help you.

I’ve coloured here with the new shades in FlexMarkers by Letraset here is the New colour chart new colours are marked with a *

Aww she's lovely Jak! The new colours are awesome! I could do with a fairy, my decorations never actually made it up this year! lol A couple of baubles here & there & a bit of tinsel lying on a chair! Won't be a problem packing them away!

Can she come round to mine afterwards?!

Lovely project

I live on my own so an extra pair of hands would be very welcome. As usual Jak you make a fantastic card and I would love to win so that I could at least have a go at making something as nice as yours -of course it will not be good as yours (ho! ho!) but it would be nice to try. Wishing all your family a wonderful New Year. It is very kind of you to give us this opportunity of winning the "fairy".
Lots of hugs.

Viv said...

Oh I really need one of these - I am fed up of the Christmas decorations by Boxing Day - and we only put (a few) up on the 21st!! Thanks for the chance to own her .. and if I'm not lucky then dear husband will just have to don the tutu and tiara (again) and take them all down!!!! LOL

GrĂ¡ O'Neill said...

Gorgeous image, love to have her pop round to mine.
I leave my decorations up for the 12 days of Christmas, so I won't think about the tidy up 'til the 6th :)

Tammy said...

Fabulous idea Jak, please send her to my house when you're done! Gorgeous card and beautiful colors and coloring!

Daisychain said...

What a gorgeous fairy and I love the colours you have done her in. I hate taking the deccies down and putting them away again so if I'm not lucky enough to have any help - I might just leave them up for a year, again!!! Hugs Christine x

andria said...

Thank you for the chance to win one of your beautiful creations love all of your wonderful work..glad you had a lovely Christmas too and no worries wont tell Chris about being the master lol..hugs

Laurian said...

What a fabulous fairy! I understand where you are coming from. I hate all that packing up and putting away but I suppose it has to be done! When my son was little we used to make a game of it so it became fun, perhaps you could get little Jack to help you and make the task enjoyable!
Whatever you do, have a wonderful New Year and lets hope next year will bring better things for all of us!

Oh she's lovely Jak, I could use a Fairy here for sure, my spine is being naughty again and simply won't allow me to be the Energizer Bunny I so want to be.

I was thinking of how to incorporate my Christmas decorations into an all year round theme and not take them down. lol.

Happy New Year to you and all!

Hugs, Lori m

Thank you for the chance to add to my collection.


Marjorie Watson said...

Hi Jak
I love the colours as much as Mo's digital images.
I could probably also use the fairy's help on 1st Jan.


Sharon Smith said...

I could defodo with fairy 3 not just to take the deccies down but to clean up after to. Love your colouring xxx

I'd love the help of a fairy, after being poorly this I only put one tree up, so not so much to take down!!

A beautiful card

Hi Jak I would love a Fairy to take down my decorations, my daughters complain until I put the decorations up but they are no where to be seen when they need to be taken down. Happy New Year and Keep crafting tinaco

Lisa Jane said...

Hope the toe is better now

Paper Junkie said...

I love your fairy Jak - do you think she'll help with ironing and hoovering too? X

Karen Drew said...

Oh to have a fairy to help with the aftermath of Christmas. Mind you my OH thinks the fairies do it all anyway, trouble is it is this rather large fairy that is writing this!!!!!
Great image Jak and brought to life beautifully

I think the colours on you fairy are lovely. I could do with help from her, it takes me ages to get decs up but I am far quicker wanting to take them down.
