Holiday Decorating

Well, I am a little behind in decorating for the holidays! There are so many wonderful color combinations! It was hard to just pick one. I really wanted the aqua and silver..but I already had bought black, silver, and red. I got some garland from Hobby Lobby and wrapped it around my chandalier. Then we hung some ornaments from it. I had a hurricane vase I used for fall and swapped out with some ornaments and picks I bought from Walmart. I made some garland for our christmas tree with some scrapbook paper and jute. Well that is as far as I got today. Hopefully I can finish before Christmas gets here! ;)

Go Hogs!!

Thats for the RAZORBACKS!! My husband is from Arkansas and of course he is a HAWG FAN!! So, I made this hat. When he was watching the game he seen a crocheted hat and said he wanted one. Well, I haven't crocheted in 15 years. I had to call me sister up for a refresher course. After 3 hours I had the hat done. Now to make the face. I had to have my mom help with that. After a few more hours this is what I came up with. I think for my first hat I did a pretty good job. Now all the kids want one. I guess I will be busy for awhile.

I have been busy making signs for a craft show...I didn't get as much done as I wanted. But here are some that I did get done and sold right away! My favorite is the You&me. I painted 2 coats of black on it and then 2 coats of white. I sanded all the edges and cut letters out with my cricut. Right now I am working on making an advent calendar. My idea is to recycle brown paper bags. I am going to cut mittens and stockings and put a lil surprise in them. I will post pics and pattern as soon as I get it done.

New bed

I have been following AnaWhite's blog for awhile. We decided to make her farmhouse bed. After, a few short hours we did it. And here are some pictures to prove it. ;) If you would like to see what else she does go check her out! She has alot of amazing DIY projects! I think this bed will last a lifetime and then some. All solid wood none of that cheap partical board here! Many thanks to my dear hubby who says alot of blood, sweat, and tears went into it. He means lots of LOVE!
