Holiday Madness

Monday, December 22, 2014

I can't believe Christmas is only 3 days away!  I should be baking at the moment (this is the latest I've ever waited to bake) but I have been easily side-tracked today.  I decided to take a break from my wreath making and turn my craftiness to picture frames.  I really love the way they came out!  I have plenty of designs running around in my head for Spring & Summer Wreaths as well as some other decorations.  I just need to get through this holiday first :-)

I'm still on my organizing kick and will be working diligently to organize the little things that have bothered me, since I will be on vacation for the next two week.

Here is a peak at the picture frames I decorated...

It's been quite some time since I've been on this blog.  I've been busy with school and my new Etsy Shop that I just opened a month ago.  Most of my free time has been crafting wreaths, so today I took some time and decorated my front porch - can't really call it a porch though, more of a landing.  I have been dying to get a sled and decorate it.  I was lucky enough to find 3 actually.  I kept two and gave one to my mom. The sled pictured I purchased last weekend at an antique show for $18.00 and the skates for $12.00.    The greenery bucket came from Home Depot $29.00 (more than I wanted to spend, but it was so darn cute.)  I have a real evergreen swag behind the skates on the sled that I picked up at Walmart for less than $5.00.  The skates are filled with berries, and pine floral sprays I picked up at AC Moore and the little snowflakes were less than $2.00 at Walmart in their Christmas Ornament section.  I love the way this turned out.  The lantern is one I had just sitting in my garage waiting for a project.  I just added a spray from AC Moore.  I purchased the ribbons from Costco for $6.89/spool and made the ribbons from that.  The spool is 50 yards of ribbon, so I have more than enough for more projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
