I always am so inspired by all the awesome ideas you all have! I always love what Whitney and Sarah come up with at Shanty2chic! I especially loved their cute photo display holders! My mother in law is recuperating from a broken hip and I thought this would be a cute gift for her.
Sorry for the fast pic, no in process ones, I took this as we were on our way out the door on Christmas Day!
As you may have heard here in So Cal we had 5 days of rain and we got 12 inches here in South Orange County, so not condusive to spray painting! Bummer :(
I added a envelope to the back and printed off a few pictures so she can change them out as she wants. I really loved how it turned out, now if we could get a few days of sunshine maybe I could make a few more!
Yes, finally I dug out the bins and began setting up my vignettes!
Can you tell I like snowmen! This is only half of the buffet! Here is the other half. I have always put my snowmen on the buffet, and when we had this awesome one built for us a year ago, I got more space!
Here is my mantle, my santa collection! Again this is only half. The bottom pic is the right side.
Hard to get a good pic. My husband is Norwegian so I have started a collection of rosemaling, still have a few to get.
How is your decorating coming? We have the tree up but no decorations on that yet!
I am trying, really trying. When you have a child in Marching Band your year isn't yours until after Thanksgiving! So.....
I was inspired by Ali at Honey and Maple Syrup and these great ornaments! Inspired by Ballard, and we know how awesome their stuff is.
We have a small gathering of friends and I was wanting something to make as a small gift. So I took this idea and ran with it. I bought the glass balls at Michaels and Joann's when they were Buy One Get One FREE, so $5 for 8 or .63, then I got the cream paint at Michaels for .39, since these are larger balls it lasted through about 3 or so. Than I bought the stick on letters, all about being easy, right, these were $3.99, but have lots of letters!
Spray painted the tops black and here is what I got! I made one for each couple, using their last name initial.
I had these cute alphabet tiles I got last year and tied them on with twine. Since I don't have a tree up yet, this is what you get. Tree will probably go up this weekend. I think I will get the little chinese food containers to package them in. So one project down, a few more to go.
