We’ve been rounding up the talented bloggers for the first week of A Handmade Holiday, a design collaboration between Cricut and Balsam Hill, which we talked about a few weeks ago. Here’s Jen of the popular blog Jennifer Rizzo, to complete our special feature on the first batch of bloggers who took part in this project.

Jen is not just a mom and home décor designer, she is the creative force behind the lifestyle blog, Jennifer Rizzo. She is also an author, having published her work titled, “Creatively Christmas,” showcasing her design style and beautiful Yuletide displays. Her blog is full of posts that include tips on running a business, recipes, entertaining ideas, DIY crafts and projects, and more.

For a sneak peek of Jen’s A Handmade Holiday project, here’s her sophisticated mantel in hues of plum, olive and gold, with handmade embellishments in cream to complete the look. Balsam Hill’s Napa Jewel Glass Ornament Set stood out among her holiday foliage, and Gilded Leaves Picks added a touch of glamour with their metallic shimmer.
