What a mess....

Hey ya'll! Hope your Tuesday has been a good one thus far and that ya are having fun checking out all the beautiful homes on tour. There are soooo many that I have been adding book marks to my inspiration file because I will never be able to find them on my own again!

Today has been a busy day. Littliest and I ran to Ulta because I ran out of my makeup. Figured it would be a quick in and out. Boy was I wrong! Took 30 minutes in line almost. After that we headed to Hobby Lobby thinking the worse. I needed to pick up a few more things to make my mom a Christmas gift and to finish up the teacher gifts. Surprisingly enough we were in and out of HobLob! That is almost unheard of.
After we picked up Oldest from school I tried to bribe the boys into staying with The Hubster while I ran to WM for a few groceries but that did not go over well. Ended up we all just stayed home. Littliest took a nap while Oldest and The Hubster watched The Discovery Channel.
I made a HUGE mess finishing up the teacher gifts and making my mom one. She said there really was not anything she wanted from a store to just make her a tassel or something. Since the tassel embellishments are not on sale yet I made her a Vintage Santa frame for now. I did find a cute little bird to make her tassel with though once I can collect all the right color scheme in supplies.

This is my huge mess! The Hubster asked me if I had an entire room for just sewing why on earth I felt led to take over the dining room too!;)


Here are the finished frames. I think they turned out pretty nice. It took a little longer than had hoped. I got frustrated with bows and gave up on them. I am glad I had those rhinestone thingys what ever they are called. I think they work. The gold one in the back is moms...shhhh! The two red ones are for Littliest to take to school and then I distressed the white frame with some Rubnbuff for Oldest to take to his teacher. I am also adding some chocolate covered pretzels to their bags. I hope that is enough!? They work so hard with our kids! There are 20 kids in Oldest's class and no aid. Can you imagine!!??
Well have a wonderful rest of the evening. I need to clean up from dinner, get the boys a shower, and do our Christmas cards after they go to bed. Here is hoping for some sunshine tomorrow! We have had 4 days of rainy cold weather and three days straight of fog all day long! Yuck!

  6. Those are gorgeous I hope you post it to my Monday party-Its So Very Creative

    I have had so many Google problems-and it isn't over-Google has no idea how to solve the problem.
    Sorry I haven't been by much-I decided after weeks and weeks of non-stop Google issues, I am throwing my hands up and making much needed visits.
    I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and hope you can come by for a visit. I will continue posting, even if it doesn't show up in the Reader.
