Are you ready for Christmas yet? Well, I’m not, if I’m done by Monday I’ll be happy.
This is what I did today instead of wrapping a huge amount of gifts! Not a good idea I know but I was off today and the creative bug bit me, which doesn’t happen often enough for me!
Well look at me I finally mastered PicMonkey, only took me almost a year, now remember I’m in my early 60’s so anything technical scares me until I learn it over and over again! I think I went a little crazy with the snow though which btw we are supposed to be getting tonight!
I thought I saw this cute decoration on Pinterest and knew I had to pin it because I just loved it but I must not have because I went thur some of my boards and it’s not there. So if anyone knows who made this please let me know and I’ll be sure to include her name here.
Here it is without the holly and snow. It was so easy to make and everything used here is from the Dollar Store.
edited. Well, I woke up this morning and logged on to see a comment from Gail at Purple Hues and Me, she is the fantastic creator of this DT decoration and she was so gracious about it. Look how beautifully she has done hers, so much prettier than mine, I did mine from memory so I forgot about the greenery which I think adds to the red and white, It’s just beautiful Gail, stop by Gail’s blog, she is such a fantastic crafter, I’ve been thur some of her posts and just couldn’t believe what she can create!
My shelves in the kitchen needed something more so I hung it below them.
I had bought 2 yards of burlap at JoAnn’s, so after staring at my bookshelf I decided to wrap the foamboard that I had painted with the burlap for the back of the shelves.
They were all out of the lighter burlap so I bought this darker shade.
I like it better than the blue paint I had on there, that’s what’s so neat about the foamboard, if you change your mind it’s a quick fix to change it!
Thanks for stopping by because I know you are so, so busy!
