Holy Goodness, I actually finished a project!

Yikes!  I know, seriously, though, right?  It's pretty amazing.  You see, I often begin wonderful projects and then I get partially through them and then sort of never go back to them.  You know how that goes, right?  Please say yes.  No...really....even if you have no idea, please say you do just so I feel better, K?  HA!!!

ANYWAY....

Tree with hand made ornaments

There you have it!!!  My little 4 ft. tree with my HANDMADE ornaments on it!!!  I'm rather excited to have made my ornaments.  I made 15 total and I like the concentration on the tree (it is a little tree, remember).

Handmade Ornaments on the Tree

I should probably still consider making a topper, but I just don't know what I want yet.  I don't have a tree skirt.  I never have.  I keep thinking that red felt might be nice.  Not sure.  I mentioned burlap and The Hubbums choked on something, so I think maybe he didn't love that idea!  HA!!!  I don't know...maybe I will wait 'till next year to tackle a tree skirt.  We'll see.

In other news....  I made this adorable little pin cushion over the weekend!  I love making these!  I have two others that I started (the cushions are made, but I need to do the bases and attach them).  The sequins on this one just make me happy!

What's Black and White With Pink Sequins?

AND.....I have PROOF that Christmas is Upon Us.  Living PROOF, I tell you.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas...

If THAT doesn't scream Christmas time, I don't know what does!  LOL!  P.S.  It's driving me crazy, so if any of you little elves want to head on over to my studio to take care of that disaster, you are more than welcome.  I do so love elves.  And gnomes.  Just say'n.

So, overall, I had a wonderful, relaxing weekend - probably the last one like that until after the new year.  It was great!

Tell me about your weekend!  I hope it was wonderful and relaxing like mine!  Happy Monday!

  11. Love your tree! And yes, I am so there with yah on the not finishing projects. I have dubbed myself "Queen of the the Unfinished project". :-) Or possibly "Queen of the Best Intentions". (To look at it in a glass is half full kind of way.) And my desk looks like a scrapbook store threw up on it. lol!
