Christmas begins at StoneGable… the blog… with my new Christmas header!
To create this Christmas header I used pictures from my own stash and edited them with an old old program called MICROSOFT DIGITAL IMAGING. A “chalk” filter was applied to each image.
If you don’t have a digital imaging program you should check out PICMONKEY. I’m amazed how well this free, no registration, on-line editor works! PicMonkey has some great new winter effects! Even if you are not a blogger this program is amazing for photos and scrapbooks!
Here is a before photo I took of Father Christmas in Williamsburg last year…
And here it is edited and the filter applied for the header… I love that soft smuggy look!
Here is the wreath I used in my header… again, Christmas in Williamsburg…
And here it is edited and the chalk filter applied…
I will be working on my sidebar too… adding Holiday posts and images. Keep an eye out for the changes!

This would make a great Christmas gift for you from someone who is having a hard time knowing what to get you!!!! Sounds like the perfect gift to me!
I hope you find Christmas cheer, here at StoneGable, all holiday season long!
