A quickie!!

Just popping in to share a quick Christmas project I finished last night.. Grabbed one of my old windows and some scrap paper and along with my Cricut machine, I put a simple design in each pane and viola!! Quick christmas decor!! I just adhered the paper with glue dots, so I can take them off if I want to use the window for something else later!!

Getting Crafty..

Working on some Christmas craft items for my Etsy Store... Last night during the Dancing with the stars elimination show, I cuddled up on my bed and made these altered composition books. I still may add a few button and ribbon embellishments before listing them but, I think they turned out kinda cute!! A great item to keep all of those Christmas lists and recipes in!! :)

I used the new Martha Stewart scrapbooking paper from Michaels and I also used the Jingle Bell paper pack from Close to My Heart! See that cute white chair? Today I stopped by my mom's house and she gave me two of them for my kitchen... she has one more in her barn, but I didn't have room for it and it needs to be painted.. LOVE when I get a cute freebie!! I also grabbed an old tin tray from her house and I also found the cute vintage Christmas apron at Goodwill for .99 cents!!

I just skipped over October!!

Well, I have completely skipped over blogging in October, now we are into November and I am over fall and on to Christmas!! I have been busy cleaning and organizing and slowing working on putting out Christmas and making Christmas crafts!!

For some reason this year, I am ready to celebrate Christmas and figure I spend so much time putting everything out, I may as well start it early and at least enjoy it before it gets taken down!! I am ready for Christmas music and a chilly night bundled up in front of the TV watching old Christmas movies.. so for a little inspiration, I chose a few pics from Country living and thought I'd give you a sneak peek of what I have been working on around the house... many more posts to read in the following days!!

And now for a sneak peek at what I've been working on!!!
