Ornament Wreath

Got to apologize that it has taken me forever to blog lately. Have you ever felt like you just don't want to blog at all and all you wanna do is look at other peoples blogs. Then you wonder why they aren't updating their blog. Haha. So, ok I will do it. I have 3 new ones. This one, Micah's first haircut and then Caitlyns thanksgiving one. Enjoy!

I have been in a craftsy mood lately and being in the holiday season doesn't help at all. Also hanging out with my Uber Crafty Girl, Kelly really doesn't help. :o) But I love it. Daniel just laughs and rolls his eyes when he sees me crafting or I show him a new thing I made. But I made him fess up that he really does like it when I am all domestic and craftsy.

My new project was an ornament wreath. I wanted to make a Christmas wreath with the pine, pinecones, and berries. But I just couldnt imagine anything cute up that wouldnt look cheesy. So after mentioning an ornamental wreath and Kelly giving me some pointers... here is how it turned out.
what you need: LOTS of ornaments (I used shatterproof ones), a wire hanger, festive ribbon, glue gun, wire(not pictured) and a must have... coffee.

Start stringing the ornaments on.
I started glueing the ornaments to each other to hold it's shape and spot on the wreath.
ALmost done... need to start filling in the holes and hot gluing with more ornaments
Finished project!!!!

NEXT: Feather Christmas Trees!!!! You can get a sneak peek at what they look like on my Uber Crafty Friend, Kelly's site.

Micah's First Haircut

Ok... so the dreaded day happened. A lot of the beautiful curls were shaved of of my son's head the other day. I totally get it... he's a boy, so needs a boy haircut. Still, all those beautiful curls are gone. No worries tho, he has plenty more.

Daddy introducing the shaver to Micah

Look at those little tuffs of hair. Actually, I wish I was quick enough to have taken a picture of the little Micah tumbleweeds rolling down the driveway. I couldn't though cause I was holding Micah still in my lap.

Thanksgiving Day

Caitlyn is loving her preschool. She looks forward to school all the time. I have noticed that she is one of the quiet students... which is odd... cause she is not quiet at all at home. But I am glad, cause her teachers rave about her. What a good girl she is.
This week they celebrated Thanksgiving and made hats, and vests and all that that goes with Thanksgiving. Here are some pictures of my beautiful girl all "pilgrimed" up.

Happy Halloween 2009

Happy Halloween 2009

Caitlyn had a "Fall Day" at school on Wednesday. She had a great day and came home with a cute little bumble bee painted on her cute little cheek.
What a poser!!!!
Here is Snow White! This was her costume during the day on Halloween.
Caitlyn chose to dress up as a Bride this year. I guess there was no escaping that decision when I am a wedding coordinator and talk of brides happens a lot in our home. But I have to say... Caitlyn is the prettiest "bride" that I have ever seen. (Oh Lord, she is growing up way too fast!!!) She is wearing her flowergirl dress and I made her veil and bouquet. She LOVED her costume. She never wanted to take it off.
She did this pose... I promise. I just was lucky to see it and catch it on camera. (Again, she is growing up WAY too fast!!!)

SUPERMAN!!!!!!!!! Cutie Patootie!!! Awwww, he is my sweet little man.

Here are my two "Super" men!!! (I know, cheesy line... but they really are super to me)
Me and my beautiful bride.
Hope you had a great day full of wonderful memories.

Another Project

I am off onto another project. Oriental "Artwork." We wanted our dining room, that is still not completed, to be an oriental themed room. I was looking hi and lo for something to go on the wall, yet was simple. A wonderful friend of mine gave the idea of covering canvas with the fabric of my choice. Loved that idea and really am happy with the way it turned out.

Here is the fabric that I chose.
Just wrap the fabric around the canvas and staple on the back side.
Another pic of me stapling
Finished product.

Decorating My Kitchen Nook

I decided that I couldnt look at my bare kitchen nook any longer, so here is what I did to make it a prattified.
I went to Hobby Lobby, my most absolute favorite store and bought some plain white candles.
I found some really pretty fall colored ribbon, half price I might add.
I wrapped the ribbon around my plain white candle and secured it in the back with a push pin.
And voila! I added my cute candles to these pretty candelabras, given to us by a sweet friend. Thanks Val. :o)
My nook needed more ribbon somewhere... so I added it to my simple pumpkin.
And here is what the nook looks like. All holiday-ed up. :)
I decided that this will be my holiday nook and each holiday will be displayed in some way.

LOVE this house, thank you Lord for such a blessing.

Silly Girl

Caitlyn playing dress up in her room the other day... came out looking like this. A beautiful bride... in pink. What makes this kinda funny... her veil is a pink skirt that she stuck under her headband.

BEFORE & AFTER Living Room

Ok... I posted new pics. There are 3, yes 3 NEW posts. This one, BEFORE & AFTER Caitlyn's Room and BEFORE & AFTER Kitchen. Remember that there is of course some more decorating to be done even though they are nearly finished. But you get the gist.

Here are some Their, Before & After pictures. Meaning pictures of the way they had the house (Their), Then the before, and of course the afters.

This picture is of their living room. The curtains we decided to keep. Originally they were going to take them with them, but they decided that the curtains didn't work with any of their new windows at their new house. So we left them up during the "painting week" and they turned out to look great with our decor. :o) They work well in the living room and compliments the brown in the kitchen. YAY.

I've noticed that you cant really tell a difference in the paint color... but BELIEVE me... it is different.

BEFORE & AFTER Caitlyn's Room

Here are some Their, Before & After pictures. Meaning pictures of the way they had the house (Their), Then the before, and of course the afters.
This picture is of their little girls room, about to be Caitlyn's room. I love how they already had it painted lavender. We kept it the same color, and luckily they had leftover paint so we just did a fresh coat on top so that it look fresh and clean. (Emphasis on the clean.) ;O)
Caitlyn LOVED getting to paint her room

Her room turned out cute. Of course I still have a few things to go up on her wall to "cutify" things a bit.
