Check out this great special from Gina K Designs this weekend! Click on the photo to start shopping! Don’t forget to check out the all new Clearance Bin too! I am going to stock up on button jars and tea tins!
Fabricworm. Super easy to follow – this went together pretty quickly. How do you like the funky multi-colored fabric John picked out from our LQS The Cotton Cupboard? It’s brand new Daydreams II by Stephanie Brandeburg for Camelot Cottons. Isn't it colorful, funky and fun? I wasn't crazy about it on the bolt, but once it was revealed to me in full (open), I really started to like it! I even bought some to make a purse out of it. He picked out the purple cuff fabric and the owner of the store helped him pick out the green liner which I also used for the loop instead of ribbon.
This year, we decided not to go all out and get a big tree or decorate to excess. We brought in our porch lit trees and are decorating each one ourselves. This is mine with all red, silver, white which I really love! It was so fun and not as time consuming to decorate! One reason we decided to go small is because I have been stressed out which caused me to get sick a week ago and it progressed throughout the week from a cold sore to sinus congestion to a sore throat to a cough to a fever, stomach ache and then the big “D” (I had the whole virus symptom gamut). I missed several days of work and lots of opportunities to make things or clean my house or wrap presents. I did manage to make it to our department event on Thursday although I was still feeling bad and the fever and “D” started! We worked 2 hours then went to a high class cinema with recliners, pillows, blankets and had lunch and watched a movie, New Year’s Eve which I liked a lot. I was just thrilled to go home and spent the better part of 24 hours in bed while I battled my fever, chills, body aches and sweating the fever out.
I am still on the mend and taking it easy still, as I don’t want to relapse. Right now I am mainly dealing with the stomach ache still. Here is a cute ornament I have on my tree I got from a “Secret Santa” at work with my name on it. how cute is that!?
Lastly, a few weeks ago when I was feeling like myself, I made a wreath for our front door which I adore! I bought it at Hobby Lobby for just $5 and all the Christmas picks were 1/2 price, then I got some red & silver ornaments from Home Depot for like $7 and the silver wire edged ribbon I got from Costco last year. I really love how it turned out!
Thanks for stopping by – promise I will stamp again when I feel better and get a handle on the messiness I left in my stamp room the last time I was in there! I will be back again soon.
