{ Merry Christmas }

May we all have the true spirit of Christmas in our lives.
We only need to drop the last syllable of Christmas and we have the True spirit of Christ. 
 May this be something we carry with us all year through.
Merry Christmas!

{ Some Baseboard, Trim & A Bit Of Photoshop = Wedding Gift }

My hubby's niece Brittany is getting married this Saturday the 18th and I've been scratching my head as to what to get them. For a long time now I've had a love of the Vintage Temple Pictures that you can buy. BUT my pocket book doesn't like the $160.00+ price tag these come with. 
SO I decided to do it myself.

 *We made the Frame out of Baseboard and some trim.

*The picture, I played around with in Lightroom & Photoshop then had printed at Costco in a 12x18.
*I painted it, then sanded down all the edges and hit it with some stain.

 Total price tag...... $28.00 people!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out. 
I see a few more of these on the horizon

For the name I used Hannibal Lecter. 
For the date I'm pretty sure I used Texas Hero.
Both, I'm sure I found free via the web..

{ A Must See!!!! }

My friend Kim and I took our Girlies to see Disney's Tangled last Saturday and it was SO STINKING CUTE!! 
I thought for an animated Disney movie this was hands down their best to date. 
We are sooooo buying this movie when it comes out on DVD.
If you haven't watched it, I HIGHLY recommend grabbing your kiddos and heading to the Theater before it's gone!!

{ Christmas Wishes }

Remember me??  
I've finally crawled out from under my pile of stitchery's & flu infected children and I just had to share this little goodie that's just too stinking cute NOT to make.
Brinley has been dying to get her hands on an American Girl doll but..... I can't bring myself to spend $100.00 on a D.O.L.L.  Especially since she has just gotten interested in dolls in the last few months. We have spent time on the internet and found several look-a-like dolls for a 1/4 the price of AG. 
You gotta love a girl with a wish list and the ability to be frugal like her mother and able to compromise.
While looking for doll info and trying to catch up on all my favorite blogs I happened upon this stinking cute bed from

  Which looks just like our bed that we made HERE.

If you have a little girl with an 18 inch doll how can you NOT want to make this cute little bed??? 
The plans are free and the directions easy to read. 
Plus you get to use all your scrap lumber!!!
Here is the link to her site.

 All I can say is this is one 8 yr. old who hopes her wish list becomes a reality!
Have a Fabulous weekend!
