{ Happy New Year }

I thought about jumping on the bandwagon of showing off all the fun stuff I did this year, but I figured ehhh' it's in my archives no need to go digging it up.... ;)
I'm sure I'll be back to a regular blogging schedule AFTER my kids have finally gone back to school. A big THANK YOU to all of you who have been loyal in following my ramblings this year it's been fun.
Have a fun and safe New Year!!
Welcome 2010!!!

{ Tutorial Coming Soon, Funk Permitting }

I think I'm officially in my winter "funk" mode. I have no desire to do ANYTHING crafty or bloggy, so I'm forcing myself to make something (tutorial wise that is). Oh and I need to finish decorating my house. So much to do and no motivation to do it. I think it's time for some Zipfizz....
Here is a sneak peek of what I'm doing.
And the fabric I'm using. Thank you Wal-Mart in Richland Washington!
I bought the whole bolt.
Maybe while I craft I'll sit and watch my new DVD- 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels...
Yes I said sit, a girl has got to preview her pain before she does it right? :)

Edited to add: Funk Won..... Sorry.

{ Trimming The Santa Tree }

Long time no post!
This is the only decor I have up at the moment GASP I know! I have been so busy with Etsy orders my Christmas Decor has gone by the wayside for a bit. Well that along with housekeeping.... 

But here is our 9 foot Santa tree, she's not 100% done as I think she needs more snowflakes crammed in her branches. 
Yes there is a tree under there somewhere. 
My sister in law put it best when she said that Christmas Decorations threw up all over her tree. 
She and I have the same tree taste, we love the decorations.
But I think she looks awesome and I love it!
And if you ordered a family stitchery here is an update:
I have been busy stitching my little heart out! I eat, sleep & dream stitching. On Sunday I stitched from 11:30 in the morning to 
12:30 at night (er morning)..... See told you it's all I do. :)

Hopefully I can get all 11 of my orders out the door in the next 2 days. I usually give myself a month to do 1 stitchery but I have done 11 in a month! So it's been crazy around here trying to get all those done being a mom to 5, a wife to 1 and trying to have some semblance of a life in the meanwhile.

{ Stuffed & Senior Portraits }

Thanksgiving was great this year, we had it at our house and I got to play the part of 'The Hostess with the Most est'. Lloyd's Parents and his Sister & her kids came and we stuffed ourselves till we couldn't eat anymore. The food was good, the company great, and now we are all suffering from a little condition that I like to call the Thanksgiving Hangover.
Too much Turkey will do that to you ya know. I am thinking the freezer will be the leftovers new home until I can stomach more holiday fare. On a non-food related note my tree is up and decorated so I will post pictures of her soon. She is oh so pretty if I do say so myself!
Yup I think I am that good. j/k

While my SIL was here I got to take my Niece Brittany's Senior pictures. This girl is just gorgeous so it's hard to take a bad picture of her. I hope she loves them!
Leave the girl some love..... :)

{ Happy Thanksgiving! }

Sorry I've been MIA for almost a week, where does the time go?
I have been busy with my kids this past week
(which is the perfect busy to be in my opinion).
We have gone to a School Play.

A Middle School Concert.
The Christmas tree went up
(still needs to be decorated & straightened apparently!)
plus we have had lots of playtime as the Lincoln logs/Lego's proof below.

The kids & I are busy making lots of turkeys with our hands and feet.
Tomorrows turkey will look much more appetizing. :)
And getting ready to host Thanksgiving Dinner for Lloyd's family. 
I hope everyone has a Wonderful Thanksgiving
to all my Family, Friends and Blogging Friends for being so Fabulous!

Okay my playtime is over I better get back to work. ;)

{ Easy Pottery Barn Inspired Christmas Wreath Tutorial-DIY }

Here is my attempt at the Pottery Barn Wreath that I posted about below. I already had the wreath and I spent $4 dollars on balls, & twisty tie line all from the Dollar Tree.This price is so much better than the $79.00 that Pottery Barn is asking! Granted I don't have the fancy hanger, but mine will be hung on the outside of my windows so I don't mind.

Gather your supplies.
Loop the twist tie through your ornament, I didn't bother gluing the caps on the balls as they were already pretty tight. Just check yours as you go.
Place your ball on the wreath and fish your loop though the wreath to the metal framing on the back & twist them so they are secure,
so E.A.S.Y.
And just keep adding until your happy with the results.
Until you have this...... Isn't she pretty!

I love it! Especially the $4.00 dollar price tag, thanks for the inspiration Pottery Barn! 
If you make these I would love to see your final product, so please share!

{ A Pinecone Wreath & Pumpkins! }

A little project I did late last night. This is what 2 1/2 hrs, 1 Styrofoam wreath, 358 Pine Cones & 79 Mini Glue sticks looks like. Yes I counted it all as I went, I'm OCD like that. I so love it thanks V & Co. for the tutorial :) And thank you Calie for helping me scrounge for the Pine Cones. Only a true friend would do that with ya! I'm dying to hang it from some fabric like V & Co but I have to figure out where to hang it first. So for now this is her temporary home. 
  I also couldn't resist taking out my fabric pumpkins again this year. I love these so much and they are so easy to make. The tutorial I used to make them is from HOLLY BRIMHALL.

This is another wreath I worked on last night, but it's still in the production phase. I plan to have it finished soon. This one is thanks to Eddie Ross.
Well, off I go to replenish my glue stick supply. :)
