Thought I'd squeeze in a post before tomorrow. Things have slowed down around here this afternoon. I had my mom out to visit on Friday and Saturday. We worked on her Christmas cards and letter, and watched some things Dan had recorded. Last night the kids were here for dinner and to watch the football game. I always love it when there are home! I think they left with their tummies full! lol Weston was here until today, and then he headed back to Lincoln, since he has to work tonight. (The dogs are sulking because all their attention givers are gone now) lol
I have some projects to share that are done using products from the one of the new companies I have been mentioning lately. "Ooh La La Design Originals" . They have lots of great goodies, like those fun dress forms, hand dyed ribbons, flowers, embellishments, ect. You can see more of their products here
This is just a dollar store shadowbox I re-purposed. ( it originally had an ugly rooster print in it). I think it's so fun to find something (not so cute) but with potential and re work it, making it into something you really like. Sometimes it's just all about looking past the initial piece and thinking about the possibilities.
The flowers, ribbon, lace, pin and bottle are all from Ooh la la. The darling baby brought to you by my niece Christine and her hubby Justin.
Just to you can see how much that little baby has grown....
a photo of her from Halloween.
How is that for a dose of darling!
I was trying to push myself to think about starting on bringing the tree in and starting to decorate, but I think that will wait a few more days. I don't think I have it in me today. I need to totally clean up and put things away from "this" holiday, before dragging out things for the next right?? ha
I have been putting out some Christmas thing over the past few days, but I think the tree will wait for now.
